Review

Some rivals are faster and more fun to drive, but few are as comfortable or refined as the Range Rover Sport. We’d advise looking at a D300 or D350 diesel unless the P400e works for your lifestyle or bank balance. Stick to the lower trim levels, too, as costs soon shoot up.

get the best price

This entry-level trim keeps the price from getting too silly and comes with lots of equipment, so it’s the one we’d go for. Electrically adjustable leather seats, dual-zone climate control, a reversing camera, all-round parking sensors, a touchscreen sat-nav system, heated front and rear seats, an electrically operated tailgate and 20in alloy wheels are all standard. There’s still a lot of desirable equipment on the options list, mind you, so factor in even higher monthly bills once you’ve added a few choice extras.

A petrol-fired 3.0-litre straight-six that is certainly brisk if you work it hard. However, the lazy low-down shove of the diesels feel more suited to the Sport.
