The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a nimbler, more athletic alternative to the Range Rover flagship SUV. Don’t worry, though: The Range Rover Sport still provides the luxury equipment that owners expect from the brand.
The Range Rover Sport is a premium midsize SUV. It has a standard five-place cabin configuration, but customers can order a third row with two more seats. The Range Rover Sport is offered in SE, HSE, HSE Dynamic, Autobiography Dynamic and SVR trims. (And a Land Rover Range Rover Sport plug-in hybrid model, which we review separately.) All models come with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The SVR edition is new for 2018. So is a standard infotainment system that boasts dual 10-inch touch screens. Land Rover has updated design elements for all models, too.
Like the Range Rover, the Range Rover Sport has a strong, angular body capped off by a high roof. The Sport model shows its athleticism with tighter sheet metal, bolder wheel arches and larger lower intakes. As for stylish standard details, those range from fender vents to dual exhaust outlets.
The Range Rover Sport then carries a fairly high level of standard equipment. This includes LED headlights, signature daytime running lights, a hands-free power tailgate and 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. You have to move up a trim to get heated mirrors, but these supply power-folding capability and puddle lights. There are a lot of other upscale options on the menu as well. Among them are a power-operated panoramic roof, foglights and 20- through 22-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport features a modern-looking cabin that avoids extra frills. To support this theme, the simple, sophisticated dashboard combines with an industrial-look center console. The standard layout for the vehicle includes 60/40-split folding seats. With those seats in use, the vehicle has a rear cargo capacity of 27.5 cubic feet. Folding those seats more than doubles capacity to 59.5 cubic feet. Two small third-row seats are available for small passengers. The rear cargo volume for Range Rover Sport is limited to 7.8 cubic feet when those are in place.
Quite a few high-end features are standard. Leather seats with a 14-way power-adjustable front row lead the way. A leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, a power-adjustable steering column and dual-zone automatic climate control also are standard. Next, Land Rover provides more lavish cabin details for the upper trims. These can bring semi-aniline leather upholstery, 22-way heated-and-ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel and a hands-free power sunshade for the panoramic roof.
Beyond that plug-in hybrid powertrain, the engine lineup for the Range Rover Sports includes five others. The standard 3.0-liter V6 is supercharged and produces 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. At the other end of the spectrum is Land Rover’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8. That delivers up to 575 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. The available 3.0-liter diesel V6 combines 254 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard for all trims.
The EPA had published ratings only for the supercharged V6 when this story was published. Fuel efficiency for this engine comes in at 17/23 mpg city/highway.
The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport offers a long list of standard technology. This covers safety features such as automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and a rearview camera. The Range Rover Sport also stands out with its infotainment technology. The standard setup is anchored by two stacked 10-inch touch screens. Those can be used to manage the standard navigation, mobile Wi-Fi, satellite radio, HD Radio and eight audio speakers.
Next, customers can build on that standard content with numerous options. For driver assistance, that includes a blind-spot system, adaptive cruise control, a lane-keeping system, automatic parking assistance, a drowsy-driver monitor and more. Audio choices are highlighted by a 23-speaker, 1,700-watt system from Meridian.
