Introduction

What Car? says...

The Range Rover Sport has all the credentials of a flagship SUV – from a desirable image to undeniable comfort and refinement. But despite its impressive spec, it isn’t actually Land Rover’s top model.

The Sport is far from overshadowed by the larger and more expensive Range Rover, though, and in many ways it ticks more boxes than its full-fat stablemate. For starters, you can have it with seven seats, which makes it a solid rival for the Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Mercedes GLE.

Despite its name, the Range Rover Sport doesn’t exactly shrink around you like a sports car, but it's still enjoyable to drive. With air suspension and sophisticated four-wheel drive, it’s in its element off the beaten track, where the Land Rover heritage shines through most brightly.

Not only will it cope with thick mud, it’s also willing to get stuck into family life. The sumptuous interior has plenty of practical touches, and long journeys won’t be a problem. Several engines are available, including a plug-in hybrid, three diesels and a few petrol-fired options.

But which one should you pick, and how does it compare to Luxury SUV rivals when it comes to driver appeal, interior space and running costs? Read on and we’ll tell you, as well as exploring which trim levels and engines make the most sense. And if we whet your appetite for a new SUV, be sure to visit our New Car Buying pages to find out how much you could save without the hassle of haggling.
