5.0 out of 5

One of the main reasons to buy a Range Rover is for the unrivalled levels of comfort they offer. All versions of the new Range Rover Sport come fitted as standard with air suspension. We were concerned after our initial drive abroad that the Sport may not be as comfortable as we’d first thought when we finally got to drive it in the UK. Thankfully, the British brand has taken into account the quality of roads on its home soil, and the Range Rover sport is able to iron out even the largest of bumps and potholes to create a sensation of wafting down the road.

Land Rover has also fitted the car with plenty of sound-deadening material to make the cabin as serene as possible. Despite the Range Rover Sport’s tall, boxy shape, there is very little wind noise, while the standard-fit 20-way adjustable seats are incredibly comfortable.

In keeping with Land Rover’s philosophy of ‘reductive modernism’, the overall design of the new Range Rover Sport’s cabin is not a large departure from the outgoing model. It does, however, see a large step up in quality; everything you touch feels exceptionally premium (bar a few cheap-feeling speaker covers on the doors) and would not appear out of place even in the full-size Range Rover.

As you can expect from a vehicle of this class and price point, all Range Rover Sports come with their interior wrapped in luxurious Windsor leather as standard. However, Land Rover now offers the Sport with vegan and environmentally-friendly PU Ultrafabric upholstery for no extra cost.

Sitting at the centre of the dashboard is Jaguar-Land Rover’s latest Pivi Pro infotainment system. All cars get a 13.1-inch curved touchscreen, bolstered by a 13.7-inch digital instrument cluster. Both are highly configurable and quick to respond, with the former coming as standard with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Another nice touch are the set of digitised physical climate controls; these remove clutter by also integrating the heated/ventilated seat controls, while also remaining easier to use when on-the-go than touch-sensitive sliders.

Trim levels & equipment

Buyers can specify their new Range Rover Sport in one of four trim levels: SE, Dynamic SE, Autobiography and First Edition. The entry-level SE has all buyers could ever need, with 21-inch alloy wheels, Matrix LED headlights, Windsor leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, a Meridian sound system, a fixed glass roof, adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera system, lane-keep assist and blind-spot monitoring all coming as standard.

Stepping up to Dynamic SE trim adds several sporty copper exterior accents, whereas the range-topping Autobiography benefits from luxuries such as 22-inch alloy wheels, a power-opening sunroof, heated, ventilated and massaging front seats, four-zone climate control, and four-wheel steering. The First Edition trim will only be available for a short time after launch and builds on the Autobiography model with 23-inch alloys and model-specific badging.

As is often the case with luxury cars, the Range Rover Sport boasts a seemingly endless options list. Some highlights include a head-up display for around £1,000, adaptive off-road cruise control for £200 and a 36-month GPS car tracker subscription for £340 – worth considering as expensive 4x4s are typically prime targets for thieves.
