Used 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Diesel
Which Range Rover Sport does Edmunds recommend?
Though the base SE model has plenty to offer, the HSE isn't much more expensive and adds some desirable features. It also opens the door to a handful of packages that aren't available on the SE. The Drive Pro package is a good choice; it adds adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist to the list of features. A stand-alone option adds heated and ventilated front and rear seats. Ventilated rears are a rarity in this class, and we think the cost is relatively low for such an unusual luxury.
Edmunds' Expert Review
- Comfortable and luxurious cabin
- Sporty handling and acceleration
- Modest cargo capacity for the class
- The V8 Supercharged trim has been dropped, but buyers can still order the V8 Supercharged Dynamic model
- The optional Wade Sensing feature alerts drivers when the vehicle approaches maximum wading depth
- Some option packages have changed
- Midway through the model year, the supercharged V6 was replaced by a turbocharged inline-six with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality was also introduced.
- Part of the second Range Rover Sport generation introduced for 2014
The Range Rover Sport is an impressive on-road performer, especially with the powerful supercharged engine. It's not the most agile SUV on the road, but it's a superbly capable off-roader.
We haven't had a chance to test the updated interior, but in our experience the Rover Sport offers exemplary comfort and quietness.
Historically, the Range Rover Sport has used excellent materials and meticulous craftsmanship. The new Touch Pro Duo system adds a thoroughly modern and appealing look, updating the cabin nicely.
Interior storage is ample, and the optional cooler box works well. With 24.8 cubic feet behind the rear seat and a max of 56.8 cubic feet, cargo space lags the class leaders. Most Range Rover Sports can tow up to an impressive 7,716 pounds. The SVR drops to a respectable 6,613 pounds, while the hybrid can tow up to 5,511 pounds.
The Range Rover Sport packs a lot of technology options, including driver aids for both on and off the road and rear-seat entertainment screens. The Touch Pro Duo system looks sharp and futuristic, but it can be slow to respond and overly complicated to use.

HSE Td6 4dr SUV 4WD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 8A)
Worst car I have ever (leased). Would not buy or lease another. Feel stuck. Cameras don’t work properly. Computer is very much a distraction. Don’t buy.
