My best car yet
Garp, 8/29/2017
After ordering my Autobiography, I waited a long 5 months (ridiculous) until collection day. After having finally received the vehicle, I can say I am truly impressed with the quality, ride, performance and design. Literally my only two minor complaints are that the rear seats are rock hard and after doing a six hour road trip, my back hurt compliments of the front seat. I never had that problem on my 2008 BMW X5. Perhaps the seats will break in over time. The second complaint was that I had to pay $650 to get a black Morzine fabric headliner. You get the same headliner in beige for free. After paying $108,000 for this vehicle, the headliner should have been Alcantara at the very least and preferably leather as on the big Range Rover Autobiography. That kind of short sighted decision by Land Rover to save a few bucks makes you feel a little cheated. You might want to reconsider that one Land Rover. But in the end, I love everything else about this vehicle and it is truly the best vehicle I've ever owned. It looks fast standing still and people are awed at the perceived and real high-end quality that this vehicle exudes. I never thought I would love the Driving Experience of another vehicle more than my BMW X5. The Range Rover Sport is that vehicle for me. I was a little concerned about what I've heard about supposed reliability issues but I sprung for 3 extra years of the Land Rover extended warranty, and I felt that warranty was a good value. So I feel confident that my experience with this Range Rover Sport will be a good one over the next seven years. I highly recommend this car.
Horrible Electronics
Picartist, 8/9/2017
First off, they forgot or screwed up and not put in voice navigation direction. You have to punch it in each time. The so called apps they have suck. None of the navigational apps they have work for me, despite spending hours trying to learn them. They simply don't work. If I had known the programmers put this car on the market without a good navigation voice assist software, I would never have bought it. Check this out before you buy, make them show you it works (which it doesn't). They keep saying they will have an update to the software soon, but so far zap.

More about the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

It's difficult to find one vehicle that can do everything, but the Land Rover Range Rover Sport comes pretty darn close. This luxury SUV is one of the most capable off-roaders you can buy, with the ability to traverse rough terrain that would leave other vehicles stranded. And yet it drives like a sport sedan, especially if you opt for the powerful supercharged V8. And with its leather-swaddled interior and British pedigree, it coddles its occupants as only a true luxury vehicle can.

The Range Rover Sport comes with a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system and a height-adjustable suspension. A low-range transfer case (which provides that serious off-road ability) is optional, but all versions get Land Rover's Terrain Response system with driver-selectable modes that fine-tune the powertrain and suspension for optimum traction. The all-wheel-drive system also provides superior foul-weather traction, and on a dry, curvy road, the Range Rover Sport is surprisingly agile. It's not the sportiest SUV we've driven, but those sportier SUVs lack the Range Rover's all-terrain abilities and the comfortable ride provided by its air-sprung suspension.

Engine choices include a 3.0-liter supercharged V6. The output sounds impressive at 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, but with 5,000 or so pounds of Range Rover to haul around, it feels anemic. We prefer the supercharged 5.0-liter V8, which offers 510 hp and 461 lb-ft. Make that 550 hp and 502 lb-ft if you opt for the SVR model. Power is not an issue here: Edmunds timed the 510-hp version to 60 mph in a blindingly quick 4.6 seconds. The SVR did it in 4.5 seconds. The fuel economy, however, is dismal: 16 mpg combined (14 city/19 highway) for the 510-hp V8; the V6 version is only about 3 mpg better.

But there is a happy medium: Land Rover offers a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 that delivers 254 hp and a husky 443 lb-ft of torque. It feels stronger than the gas V6 and the EPA estimates are hard to beat: It's rated at 24 mpg combined (22 city/28 highway), which is a fantastic figure for such a heavy SUV.

Drawbacks to the Range Rover Sport include a kids-only third-row seat and less than stellar cargo capacity. Even with the third row folded, the Sport offers just 27.7 cubic feet of cargo space, which is what we'd expect in a compact crossover. (The Range Rover Sport is smaller than the standard Range Rover, but it isn't that much smaller.) Even with all rear seats folded, cargo capacity is just 62.2 cubic feet.

The Range Rover Sport comes in five basic trim levels. Even the base-model SE is nicely equipped, including a long list of active safety features. The HSE has most of the equipment luxury buyers expect. The Supercharged model adds the powerful V8. The top-of-the-line Autobiography is as posh as a Range Rover can be (which is pretty darn posh), and the supercharged SVR is guaranteed to get your adrenaline flowing. Edmunds can help find the perfect 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport for you.
