2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Ratings & Reliability
Though the Sport has a similar level of interior plushness as the stately Range Rover it is based upon, it focuses on handling prowess and less on ride comfort and off-road ability. Low-range gearing is optional. For 2019 an inline six-cylinder engine replaces the original V6. Supercharged V8 and V6 diesel engines are also available. An eight-speed automatic is standard. The Sport delivers an engaging driving experience, with taut, agile handling, but the ride is stiff and choppy and the exhaust note is over the top. Some controls are behind the times, and the gear selector is unintuitive. Rear-seat room is generous, but the optional third-row seat is tiny. A stronger SVR V8 are available. A P400e Plug-in Hybrid with 31 miles of electric range is new for 2019.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport 2018
Shorter, lower, sportier, and more affordable than its Range Rover sister, the Range Rover Sport trades some of the ride comfort of its sister ship for outstanding performance on pavement. Remarkably, it does so while holding on to the offroad capability expected of a Range Rover. An aluminum unibody makes this version lighter than its predecessor, which improves performance and fuel economy. Supercharging was introduced for the V8 engine and a supercharged V6 engine option was added. Though well equipped in its base configuration, blind spot monitoring and a surround-view camera system are highly recommended options. The 2016 update brought a diesel powerplant and handsfree operation for the tailgate.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport 2013
This version of the Range Rover Sport is actually based on the Land Rover LR4 rather than the high-end Range Rover. A luxurious midsized SUV, the five-passenger interior is festooned with leather, wood trim, and luxury amenities, including active cruise control and rear-seat DVD entertainment screens. A 4.4-liter V8 is standard, while a supercharged 4.2-liter V8 is optional. While competent enough, the heavy Range Rover Sport lacks the sporty handling of some of its key competitors. Off-road capability is acceptable, although the 19-inch tires don't lend themselves to that task. The 2010 update brought new 5.0-liter V8 engines.
