2020 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Review

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is one of the most capable performers in its class, but it’s not as roomy as some rivals, and some of its technology is tricky to use. This luxury midsize SUV doesn’t have an overall score or ranking because it lacks safety ratings.

Pros & Cons

  • Incredible off-road ability
  • Powerful engines
  • Posh interior
  • Below-average cargo capacity for the class
  • Complex infotainment system

New for 2020

  • Mild-hybrid and plug-in-hybrid powertrains
  • 340-horsepower supercharged V6 engine discontinued
  • Revamped trim lineup
  • Some feature shuffling between trims

Is the Land Rover Range Rover Sport a Good SUV?

Yes, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a good SUV. Its performance is among the best in the class, with engaging handling, excellent off-road capability, and powerful engines (including two high-performance variants). It also has a stylish, well-appointed cabin with comfortable seats.

There are a couple of drawbacks worth noting as well. Most other luxury midsize SUVs have more cargo space, and while the Range Rover Sport offers plenty of features, its infotainment system isn't as intuitive as those found in many rivals.

Should I Buy the Land Rover Range Rover Sport?

There's certainly a lot to like about the Ranger Rover Sport, but it's hard to recommend this Land Rover instead of many other SUVs in the class. Aside from its off-road ability, the Range Rover Sport doesn't offer much that you can't get in most rivals, many of which are less expensive. That makes the Range Rover Sport a questionable value proposition.

Other intriguing choices in the class include another Land Rover – the Range Rover Velar – and the Mercedes-Benz GLE.

Should I Buy a New or Used Land Rover Range Rover Sport?

The Range Rover Sport sees some notable updates for 2020, but since a used model could save you quite a bit of money, we recommend skipping the new model.

There's an updated trim lineup for 2020, with the HST model making its debut and Land Rover dropping the Supercharged Dynamic. Land Rover adds two mild-hybrid turbocharged six-cylinder engines to the powertrain lineup, and it drops the outgoing model's 340-horsepower supercharged V6. New standard features for 2020 include a Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

The current Range Rover Sport generation debuted for the 2014 model year, and Land Rover has rolled out updates each year since then. Satellite radio and HD Radio became standard for 2015, and the performance-oriented SVR model launched that year. The 2016 model gained a turbodiesel engine option.

The Range Rover Sport gained more standard amenities for 2017, including a 10.2-inch touch screen and safety features such as front parking sensors and lane departure warning. Models from 2018 offer revised exterior and interior styling and a slightly stronger V8 engine. The only major change for 2019 was a shuffling of features between trims.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: Land Rover Range Rover Sport or Land Rover Range Rover Velar?

The Land Rover Range Rover Velar has different strengths and weaknesses than the Sport, so deciding which is better largely boils down to personal preference. These Range Rover models have tremendous off-road ability, premium interior quality, and comparable features lists. The Velar rides a bit more smoothly, while the Sport has stronger available engines. The Velar also has more cargo space and a lower starting price than the Sport.

Which Is Better: Land Rover Range Rover Sport or Mercedes-Benz GLE?

The Mercedes-Benz GLE is one of the highest-rated entries in the luxury midsize SUV class, and it's a better vehicle than the Range Rover Sport. It has multiple engine options, including a high-performance variant, and the GLE provides an incredibly cushioned ride. Inside, this Mercedes-Benz has arguably the nicest cabin in the class, with incredibly comfortable seats and an easy-to-use infotainment system. The Range Rover's only advantage over the GLE is its off-road ability. Unless you plan to go off-roading regularly, go for the GLE.

Range Rover Sport Interior

How Many People Does the Range Rover Sport Seat?

The Range Rover Sport seats five in its standard configuration, and an available third row increases the seating capacity to seven. The front seats are comfortable and have several adjustments, but larger drivers may feel confined by the seat's side bolsters. The second row has plenty of room for adults, but the third row is very limited on space. It’s best left for kids, but even they might feel a little cramped back there.

Range Rover Sport and Child Car Seats

The Land Rover Range Rover Sport has two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats. Attaching the straps to the lower anchors requires a lot of force.

Range Rover Sport Interior Quality

This SUV certainly looks and feels like a Land Rover on the inside. Occupants are well-insulated from outside noise, and premium materials, including posh accents like wood trim, cover virtually every surface.

Range Rover Sport Cargo Space

The Range Rover Sport doesn't have as much cargo space as many of its competitors. There's 27.5 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and 59.5 cubes with these seats folded down. In the plug-in-hybrid model, those totals drop to 24.8 and 56.8 cubic feet, respectively.

Range Rover Sport Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control and the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system with two 10-inch touch screens, navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an eight-speaker audio system, satellite radio, a USB port, Bluetooth, and a Wi-Fi hot spot.

Available features include a panoramic sunroof, tri- or quad-zone automatic climate control, a rear-seat entertainment system, and multiple Meridian audio systems. Another option is Land Rover’s Activity Key, which is a waterproof wristband that lets you do things like lock and unlock your vehicle.

While the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system offers a lot of bells and whistles, including newly standard connectivity features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, it isn't very user-friendly. The interface has a learning curve, and the screens can be slow to respond. Additionally, the central touch screen is hard to reach from the driver’s seat.

Range Rover Sport Performance

Range Rover Sport Engine: No Shortage of Choices

This Land Rover comes standard with a 355-horsepower turbocharged six-cylinder engine that has mild-hybrid capability to aid acceleration and improve fuel economy. This engine feels energetic in just about all driving situations. However, there are several other available engines, most of which make the Range Rover Sport accelerate more quickly.

You can equip the Range Rover Sport with a 395-horsepower turbo-six engine, one of two supercharged V8s (making 518 and 575 horsepower, respectively), a 254-horsepower turbodiesel, or a 398-horsepower plug-in-hybrid powertrain. As you might guess, the high-performance models feature the V8s, and they're the quickest of the bunch, both sprinting from zero to 60 mph in no more than five seconds.

Every Range Rover Sport comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Range Rover Sport Gas Mileage: Depends on the Powertrain

With the turbodiesel, the Range Rover Sport gets an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. The plug-in-hybrid model gets 19 mpg and 42 MPG-equivalent city/highway combined. The monstrously powerful SVR trim gets just 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.

At the time of writing, fuel economy estimates for the mild-hybrid turbo-sixes are not available.

Range Rover Sport Ride and Handling: Plenty to Like

Though it may not quite match the sportiness of the Porsche Cayenne, the Range Rover Sport still delivers plenty of driving enjoyment. It offers a buttoned-down feel around turns, and its accurate steering makes winding roads easier to handle. The Sport also delivers a smooth ride.

Range Rover Sport Off-Road Performance

The all-wheel-drive Range Rover Sport lives up to the Land Rover name, providing incredible off-road ability that's ready to tackle whatever you find when the pavement ends. The Terrain Response System has five drive modes and the ability to adjust the suspension and off-road systems to suit various landscapes. With the optional Terrain Response 2, the suspension adjusts automatically, and the Range Rover Sport gains a Rock Crawl mode.

Range Rover Sport Towing Capacity

When properly equipped, this Range Rover can tow up to 7,716 pounds.

How Much Does It Cost to Insure a Land Rover Range Rover Sport?

Which Land Rover Range Rover Sport Model Is Right for Me?

The all-wheel-drive Land Rover Range Rover Sport comes in six trims: SE, HSE, HST, HSE Dynamic, Autobiography Dynamic, and SVR. Moving up the trim ladder gets you more horsepower.

The bulk of this Land Rover's comfort and convenience features are available in every trim. With that in mind, many buyers will do just fine sticking with the base SE trim. It packs a nice array of standard technology, and dozens of features are available individually or as part of an optional package.

The HSE trim is another solid choice. It offers a few more features than the base trim, and it's the only trim in the lineup that gives you a choice of three powertrains.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport SE

The base Range Rover Sport SE retails for $68,650. The SE has a 355-horsepower mild-hybrid 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine. Like all trims, the SE comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Standard features include leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system with two 10-inch touch screens, navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an eight-speaker sound system, satellite radio, a USB port, Bluetooth, and a Wi-Fi hot spot.

Standard driver assistance features include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, low-speed automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and lane keep assist.

Several option packages are available. The Drive Pack ($410) adds blind spot monitoring, driver drowsiness monitoring, and traffic sign recognition. The Drive Pro Pack ($2,170) includes all of the Drive Pack's features, plus adaptive cruise control and high-speed automatic emergency braking. The Park Pack ($715) has rear cross traffic alert, 360-degree parking sensors, and a clear exit monitor. The Driver Assist Pack ($4,915) includes all of the features from the aforementioned packages, plus a surround-view parking camera system and parallel and perpendicular park assist.

The Off-Road Pack ($1,785) includes a two-speed transfer case, All Terrain Progress Control, and Terrain Response 2, which automatically adapts to various types of terrain. The Climate Comfort Pack ($920) adds a heated steering wheel, and the Vision Assist Pack ($1,490) adds a head-up display.

A number of features are available individually as well. You can purchase a panoramic sunroof ($1,400), heated front and rear seats ($1,020), third-row seating ($2,040), and a 13-speaker Meridian audio system ($305) or a 19-speaker Meridian audio system ($1,120).

Finally, you can upgrade from the base engine to a 254-horsepower turbodiesel V6 for $850.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE

The Range Rover Sport HSE carries a starting price of $74,250. In addition to the base trim's features, the HSE comes with a panoramic sunroof, upgraded leather upholstery, heated front seats, a 13-speaker Meridian audio system, blind spot monitoring, driver drowsiness monitoring, traffic sign recognition, 360-degree parking sensors, rear cross traffic alert, and a clear exit monitor.

The turbodiesel is a $750 upgrade, and this is the only trim besides the base SE to offer this engine. You can also opt for a 398-horsepower plug-in-hybrid powertrain (a $4,750 upgrade) that's comprised of a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and an electric motor.

You can add all of the features available in the SE trim. The HSE also offers a few additional goodies like quad-zone automatic climate control and ventilated front and rear seats.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport HST

The all-new Range Rover Sport HST starts at $82,950. It features a mild-hybrid 395-horsepower 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine. The HST also comes with a 19-speaker Meridian audio system, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a hands-free power liftgate.

There are no other powertrains available in the HST trim.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

The Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic starts at $86,500. This is the lowest trim to feature one of the high-performance engines. The HSE Dynamic comes with a 518-horsepower 5.0-liter supercharged V8, and that's the only powertrain available in this trim. Otherwise, the standard and available features are similar to the lower HSE trim.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic

The Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic has a starting price of $88,990. The Autobiography Dynamic comes standard with the 398-horsepower plug-in-hybrid powertrain, and it's the only trim to offer this setup besides the HSE. The Autobiography's features list is similar to that of the HST.

Land Rover Range Rover SVR

The top-of-the-line Range Rover Sport SVR checks in with a starting MSRP of $114,500. The SVR comes with the strongest engine in the lineup: a 575-horsepower 5.0-liter supercharged V8. It also comes with an electronic air suspension and sporty styling enhancements, and it offers the same list of available features as the Autobiography trim.

The Final Call

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a powerful, capable SUV that doesn't skimp on interior luxury. However, it comes up short in a few practical areas like cargo space and tech usability. It's also one of the most expensive vehicles in the luxury midsize SUV class. Add it all up, and you have a Land Rover that's undoubtedly a great vehicle, but it doesn't provide as much bang for your buck as some competitors.

Don’t just take our word for it. Check out comments from some of the reviews that drive our rankings and analysis.

  • "The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport offers impressive luxury and off-road credentials in a premium SUV as bold as it is beautiful." -- Autotrader (2019)
  • "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.” -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "The interior marries wood, leather and other high-quality materials in a way that could only be British, resulting in passenger coddling that perfectly justifies the high price tag against competitors like the Audi Q7 or BMW X5. Yet even though most Range Rover Sports will never set a tire off pavement, if the going does in fact get rough, this luxury SUV is one of the best off-road vehicles in the world." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)
