Range Rover Sport SUV - Practicality & boot space
With so much space on offer, the Sport is the largest Range Rover most buyers will ever need
Buyers can again choose from one of four separate models that make up the Range Rover lineup, making it a little hard to determine each model’s size. The latest Range Rover Sport is the second largest Range Rover you can buy, sitting above the Evoque and Velar, and has grown slightly for this third generation.
2022 Range Rover Sport: interior space and storage
Despite rivals such as the Audi Q7 offering a seven-seat configuration, the new Range Rover Sport is only offered with five seats. Buyers looking for a seven-seater Land Rover should instead take a look at our reviews for the Discovery, the Defender and the new full-size Range Rover.
That’s not to say the new Range Rover Sport isn’t spacious inside; the SUV’s tall, boxy shape means there’s plenty of headroom for both front and rear passengers. The latest Sport also features a longer wheelbase (the distance between the front and rear wheels) than the outgoing car, resulting in more legroom for those seated in the back.
Open the standard automated tailgate and you’ll be greeted with 647 litres of boot space in the new Range Rover Sport. This is roughly the same as what you’d get in a Mercedes GLE, and can be expanded to a cavernous 1,491 litres by folding the second row of seats down.
Perhaps more impressive is the fact that choosing a plug-in hybrid powertrain does not have any compromise in terms of outright capacity; rivals such as the BMW X5 xDrive40e have smaller boots in order to house all the necessary electrical components.
