Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
The Range Rover Sport provides generous space for long-legged people up front, and there’s also plenty of elbow room. And while there is fractionally less headroom than in the full-fat Range Rover, you’d have to be wearing a top hat to notice.
There are two cupholders on the centre console that can be neatly covered by a sliding lid. The glovebox and centre cubby are a good size (a refrigerated version of the cubby is available as an option), although the door pockets are quite slim.
Like the driver, the front passenger is treated to 20-way electric seat adjustment (22-way on Autobiography models), including height and lumbar controls. Heated front and rear seats are standard, and a cooling function is available if you pay extra.
The boot is big and there’s no reduction in boot space if you opt for a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model. What does that mean in the real world? Well, we managed to fit eight carry-on suitcases below the parcel shelf, one less than you’ll fit in the BMW X5 PHEV but still more than enough for a very big shop.
