Review

Some rivals are faster and more fun to drive, but few are as comfortable or refined as the Range Rover Sport. Stick to the lower trim levels, though, as costs soon shoot up.

get the best price

Trim: HSE

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.

Engine: 3.0 SDV6

The SDV6 has plenty of low-rev shove, helping to mask the car’s considerable mass. However, rivals such as the Audi Q7 3.0 TDI 272 and BMW X5 40d are that little bit faster.
