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

Over regular SVR you get 22in wheels, a black roof, a vented carbon fibre bonnet with additional carbon fibre accents inside and out. Essentially, you’re spending a lot of money to look extra flashy.

The SVR model is the full-house, go-faster model. It can be toned down sufficiently when required, but turn up the wick with the sportiest modes and it becomes unashamedly noisy and extravagant, and makes the Range Rover Sport indecently fast for something so big. Be prepared to shell out on fuel, though, because for a realistic real-world average expect 18-19mpg, with maybe 22mpg on a good day. It's worth bearing in mind that an Audi SQ7 handles better, rides better and is cheaper to buy and to run.
