Some rivals are faster and more fun to drive, but few are as comfortable or refined as the Range Rover Sportget 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.
