Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic

Owners Rating
Be the first to review

The Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic is the most luxurious Range Rover Sport - only the Range Rover SVR is more expensive. It rivals the Porsche Cayenne, BMW X5 and the Mercedes ML-Class SUVs.

The Range Rover Autobiography Dynamic is available with three diesels and one petrol engines. The choice of diesels comprise a 225 3.0-litre engines, and a 339bhp 4.4-litre V8 - although the latter provides more ability to pull loads more easily. The sole petrol choice is a 510bhp 5.0-litre supercharged V8. There's also a 3.0-litre diesel hybrid which is the cheapest to run, but not by much.

Running costs for the 3.0-litre diesel are not too bad for a big SUV, averaging 40mpg. The 4.4-litre V8 diesel manages 32.5mpg while the most expensive supercharged V8 petrol can only manage 22.1mpg. Up to 44mpg should be possible from the hybrid.

The top-of-the-range Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic comes very well equipped. Standard specification includes huge 21-inch alloy wheels, a full-size panoramic sliding roof, sat nav, leather seats, xenon headlamps, electrically-folding mirrors, a heated steering wheel, electric seats and a premium sound system. There’s also automatic headlamps and wipers, tyre pressure monitors, keyless entry, parking sensors and adaptive cruise control (which maintains a safe distance between you and the car in front).

Good points

The Range Rover Sport Autobiography blends a supple ride with good handling. It’s not quite as fun to drive as a Porsche Cayenne, but it’s a lot more comfortable. All three engines are quiet yet powerful and inside, the Range Rover Sport has a well-built and luxurious interior. It’s also very quiet inside and feels upmarket, stylish and expensive. On the road, despite its size, the Range Rover corners far better than you think, with less roll. Off road it is as capable as the full-size Range Rover – and is well-deserving of the Land Rover badge.

Bad points

Some of the Range Rover Sport’s rivals (like the BMW X5). And while the interior is spacious, the optional pair of third-row rear seats are only suitable for kids.The Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic is well equipped but be careful when you’re ordering your car new. It’s very tempting to get carried away personalising your car and it doesn’t take long before you’ve added almost £10,000 to its already hefty list price.
