Land Rover Range Rover Sport vs. the competition
2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class
Land Rover Range Rover Sport vs. Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class
The GLE is Mercedes-Benz's entry in the midsize luxury crossover class. As expected, this big cruiser features decadent cabin materials, though it's not as high-tech as the Land Rover. Its all-electric range is a third of the Range Rover Sport's, but the GLE is also more powerful and considerably less expensive.
Land Rover Range Rover Sport vs. Porsche Cayenne
Who says you can't have a sporty SUV? The Porsche Cayenne is undoubtedly the enthusiast's choice in the midsize crossover segment, and we think it's worth the sometimes exorbitant cost. Every engine except the base Cayenne's V6 makes in excess of 400 horsepower — even that of the S E-Hybrid plug-in. Note that its all-electric range is about half of the Range Rover Sport's.
Land Rover Range Rover Sport vs. Volvo XC90
Though the Volvo XC90 is a few inches longer than the Range Rover Sport, its third row is also strictly kids-only. In this case, the plug-in hybrid is the most potent powertrain available, pairing an electric motor to a four-cylinder engine that is both supercharged and turbocharged. As with the other rivals, the XC90's EV range isn't as lengthy as the Range Rover Sport's.
It's difficult to find one vehicle that can do everything, but the 2019 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.
At the moment, the only powertrain available for the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired to an electric motor. Total system output is 398 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque.
Though the non-hybrid powertrains have not yet been confirmed for 2019, we don't expect them to change from last year. In 2018, engine choices started with a 3.0-liter supercharged V6. The output sounds impressive at 340 hp and 332 lb-ft 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 gets a 8-hp bump for 2018 to 518 hp and 461 lb-ft. Make that 575 hp and 516 lb-ft if you opt for the SVR model. Edmunds timed a pre-2018, 510-hp Range Rover Sport Supercharged to 60 mph in a blindingly quick 4.6 seconds. Fuel economy is decent, given the amount of power on tap: 19 mpg combined (17 city/22 highway) for the V8. The gasoline V6 is nearly identical except for the 23 mpg highway figure.
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 24.8 cubic feet of cargo space, which is what we'd expect in a compact crossover. (Cargo capacity decreases slightly with the plug-in, but Land Rover hasn't given out specifics yet). Even with all rear seats folded, cargo capacity is just 56.8 cubic feet.
The Range Rover Sport plug-in comes in a single trim: the HSE model. Last year's gas-powered Range Rover Sports came in six 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, while the HSE with Dynamic Package bumps up the power and luxury another notch. 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 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport for you.
