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

Overall rating

It's hard to find an area the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport doesn't excel in. Like many of its competitors, the Range Rover Sport offers a luxuriously appointed cabin, a comfortable ride and sprightly acceleration. But it also boasts unrivaled off-road performance if you decide to escape the sprawl of suburbia and literally head for the hills. The same can be said of the standard Range Rover, of course, but the Sport's more attractive price point might give it the edge for many prospective buyers.

For 2019, the Range Rover Sport adds a new powertrain to its robust lineup. Midway through the model year (so-called 2019.5 models), the supercharged V6 gasoline engine was replaced by a new mild hybrid powertrain consisting of a turbocharged inline-six with a 48-volt system providing extra thrust at low revs. Though we haven't yet driven the Range Rover Sport with this powertrain, its promise of power and fuel efficiency is enticing.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport models

The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a midsize luxury SUV offered in six main trim levels: SE, HSE, HSE Dynamic (replaced by the HST trim for 2019.5 models), Supercharged Dynamic, Autobiography and SVR. Five-passenger seating is standard, and a power-folding third row that boosts capacity to seven passengers is available on all trims except the SVR.

The Range Rover Sport is available with a wide range of powertrain options; all are paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and feature four-wheel drive. The most common for 2019 models is a supercharged 3.0-liter V6. On SE and HSE trims, it produces 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. On the HSE Dynamic trim, output is boosted to 380 hp. For 2019.5 models, this powertrain was replaced by a turbocharged inline-six with an auxiliary compressor driven by a 48-volt electrical system. Power stands at 355 hp and 365 lb-ft on SE and HSE models, and 395 hp and 406 lb-ft on the new HST trim. A fuel-sipping, diesel-powered 3.0-liter V6 (254 hp, 443 lb-ft) is available on SE and HSE trims.

The Supercharged Dynamic and Autobiography trims are powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 (518 hp, 461 lb-ft). The range-topping SVR increases output to 575 hp and 516 lb-ft.

Standard features on the Range Rover Sport SE include 19-inch wheels, a self-leveling air suspension with automatic height adjustment for loading and unloading, LED headlights, rear foglights, power-folding and auto-dimming heated mirrors, puddle lamps, a hands-free liftgate, and keyless ignition and entry.

Within the cabin, you'll find dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, 14-way power-adjustable front seats, 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks, driver memory settings, ambient interior lighting and a power-adjustable steering wheel. Also standard are a navigation system, a 10-inch touchscreen, and an eight-speaker sound system with satellite and HD radio and USB connectivity. Safety features include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning and forward collision warning with low-speed automatic emergency braking.

There are two options packages exclusive to the SE. The Drive package adds a blind-spot monitor, a driver-condition monitoring system and traffic sign recognition. The Park package adds 360-degree parking sensors and rear cross-traffic alert.

The HSE includes both above packages, plus adds 20-inch wheels, front foglights, a fixed panoramic sunroof, perforated leather upholstery, an 11-speaker stereo system, 16-way heated front seats, and upgraded interior trim.

The HSE Dynamic (called the HST in 2019.5 models) is powered by the upgraded gasoline engine. Additional features include the contents of the Off-Road package, 21-inch wheels, automatic high beams, sporty visual upgrades, a heated steering wheel with wheel-mounted shift paddles, additional leather interior trim, configurable ambient lighting, even better front seats (with 22 adjustments plus ventilation and airline-style headrests), heated rear seats, tri-zone climate control, a power-sliding sunroof and the 19-speaker audio system.

The Supercharged Dynamic uses a supercharged V8 and reverts to the HSE's level of equipment. However, it also includes the HSE Dynamic's 21-inch wheels, the Off-Road package, trim upgrades and paddle shifters. The Autobiography adds the HSE Dynamic's luxury features, along with power-closing doors and a 360-degree parking camera.

At the top of the Range Rover Sport lineup is the high-octane SVR. It adds unique wheels, sport-tuned suspension and steering, sportier transmission programming, special interior and exterior styling and trim details, and sport seats.

Many of the above options can be ordered on lower trims, though some packages are available on most levels. These include Drive Pro (blind-spot monitor, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and high-speed automatic emergency braking), Park Pro (automatic parallel and perpendicular parking) and Climate Comfort (a refrigerated box in the front console, a heated steering wheel, and, for non-SE models, a sliding sunroof and four-zone climate control).

Stand-alone options include 22-inch wheels, a head-up display, a 23-speaker audio system, front-seat massage functions, ventilated rear seats, a dual-screen rear entertainment system, and the Wade Sensing system, which requires a 360-degree camera and blind-spot monitor and alerts drivers when the Range Rover Sport approaches its maximum wading depth. A third row of seating, for a maximum of seven passengers, is available on all trims except the P400e plug-in and SVR models. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not standard but are part of a no-cost option package called the Smartphone Pack.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. We haven't yet driven the Range Rover Sport with the plug-in hybrid powertrain, but we have driven a gasoline-powered model of this generation. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged (supercharged 5.0-liter V8 | 8-speed automatic | 4WD).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2014, the current Range Rover Sport has received some revisions, including smartphone integration via Jaguar's InControl Apps application and additional safety systems in 2015, revised off-road systems in 2016, a new touchscreen interface in 2017, and a refreshed interior in 2018. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Range Rover Sport.

Driving

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.

Acceleration

At the Edmunds test track, a Range Rover Sport Supercharged sprinted from 0 to 60 mph in a blistering 4.6 seconds. The SVR improved a smidge to 4.5 seconds. There are faster SUVs, but not many.

Braking

In our testing, the Range Rover Sport performed a panic stop from 60 mph in 124 feet, average for the class.

Steering

The steering feel and accuracy are impeccable on twisting mountain roads yet appropriately light when parking.

Handling

Although it's hard to trust something this big, the Range Rover Sport tackles back roads with the utmost confidence and speed. It's still not as agile as the considerably lighter Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

Off-road

Tackling steep rocky grades is made effortless thanks to the sophisticated Terrain Response system and the two-speed transfer case. But wheel articulation is far better on the non-Sport Range Rover.

Comfort

We haven't had a chance to test the updated interior, but in our experience the Rover Sport offers exemplary comfort and quietness.

Seat comfort

The highly adjustable front seats have ample padding and support, making the Range Rover competitive with luxury sedans in terms of comfort.

Ride comfort

With the Terrain Response system set to Auto, the ride is pleasantly cushioned and readily smooths out bumps in the road. Imperfections are felt, but they are never intrusive in this mode.

Noise & vibration

Levels of wind and road noise are insulated enough to be barely detectable. You'll only hear engine growl when you're driving with exuberance. And even then, it sounds great.

Interior

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.

Utility

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.

Technology

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.

Major electrical issue
J white,08/17/2019
HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)
Just purchased a brand new 2019 Range Rover sport and the car has had a complete electrical/ system failure. Tried to start the car and nothing works. We had the car towed and the dealer has no solution except to wait until corporate engineering finds a solution. The car has been at the dealer for a while now and others have been affected for over a month with no solution or fix on the horizon. From what we have learned this seems to be a much larger issue.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS CAR!!!
Amy M,01/23/2020
HSE Dynamic 4dr SUV 4WD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)
I bought this car in March of 2019. I really loved the look and was excited about having a luxury vehicle for the first time. This car almost cost my daughter and I our life. Within months of owning the vehicle this car stopped without any warning in the middle of a five lane highway. The car completely locked up. I couldn’t even shift the gears. Cars were speeding up on us and my daughter was screaming from the back. I called 911, but it took the police a half hour to arrive because of the holiday traffic. Once they arrived, it took two tow trucks over two hours to figure out how to unlock the wheels to put it up on the bed. I filed a claim with corporate. The advisor James Rochester said they would review the case and get back with me within 30 days. Almost 60 days later he sends me a letter stating that they were sorry about the inconvenience, but because they fixed it they are denying my claim. It took them two weeks to fix the engine failure and they added 50 miles to the car to make sure it was ok. My car has a warranty and The added mileage was on me. He stated it would have to be a repeat incident and possibly they would reopen my case. They did NOTHING!!! Not even a Reimbursement for the two weeks or the mileage. A repeat case??? I also found out that the engine failure was a recall one month before the purchase of my vehicle. I was never notified!!! I do not recommend ever purchasing a car from Range Rover.

V8 is recommended
IB,12/08/2018
Supercharged Dynamic 4dr SUV 4WD (5.0L 8cyl S/C 8A)
This is an updated review after 6 months of owning 2019 Supercharged model. I am still very satisfied with the performance of the V8 engine, the comfort and looks of the car as well. No mechanical issues at all. Had a flat tire and it was nice to have a full-size spare with matching rim in the car. Unfortunately, things I am not satisfied with are several. - Inappropriate low-profile tires in this capable off-road SUV. It defeats the purpose. - The large panoramic moon-roof allows in too much heat, even after installing window tint on it. - Back up camera: low resolution and most likely wireless connection as it breaks up. The camera itself is mounted off center to the side of the license plate which distorts the dimensions when trying to back up. - The SIM card never worked. AT&T did not even recognize the car VIN number. - The car does not save my settings, simple things like A/C temperature, Wi-Fi password, or last audio channel I used. - The car does not have CD player. Trying to play music from USB stick does not work well as system will always restart in FM next time, and when going back to USB it will always start from song number 1 and will never recall where it left. - Rear entertainment system: this is subscription service over AT&T. No actual DVD tray. Connecting external DVD player to HDMI port did not work well. Very disappointed children. - Navigation system: Hard to zoom in and zoom out in as it is completely touch screen. The map graphics are not the best. The navigation screen is wide but too short (about 3-4 inches) only showing a small stretch of the road ahead of you. The font on the map is too small. - Auto start-stop function would have saved some gas if it would last more than 10-20 seconds with the engine off. Apparently the battery is not sufficient to power everything and the car restarts itself very shortly after a stop on a traffic light.

Amazing comfort and utility
Sandiegoken,05/30/2019
HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)
I love the comfort and ride. I have had absolutely no issues with electronic screens or camera, though I understand that updates were made. I'm not towing or driving off road but I am impressed with the fit and finish, comfort, trying, technology and ride. The supercharged 6 provides plenty of power and torque. UPDATE....The automatic engine shut off when you come to a stop is a major annoyance and you can only disengage it for the current ride, not permanently. The park assist feature is not near as good the technology on most every other brand of car, it is very basic and ineffective technology. The process of changing the various dash screens is not at all intuitive and forget trying to update the home screen. Clearly wish there was a click in the dash, as the small font digital time reading on the screen is not easily seen.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
