2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Overview


The Range Rover Sport shines when it comes to performance and luxury. Edmunds says, "If you're after classic British four-wheel-drive heritage, capability, comfort and style integrated into a slightly leaner and sleeker package, the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a natural, top-of-your-list choice."

The interior of the Range Rover Sport is luxurious and full of quality materials and the latest technology, but in a highly competitive class, that's not enough to put the Sport at the top. Still, test drivers praise the Sport's performance, both on-road and off. 

The Range Rover Sport comes in two trims -- HSE and Supercharged. Both feature V8 engines, with the Supercharged getting more horsepower and torque.

  • "It is the Range Rover Sport's tenacious off-road capability (thank you, Terrain Response), its solid on-road performance, stylish looks, and handsome but no-nonsense interior that make it the ute that I would choose -- in Vesuvius Orange, please." -- Road and Track
  • "Certainly, the Range Rover Sport HSE is one of the most capable sport-utility vehicles, on the road or off, available anywhere." -- Washington Post
  • "We'd be more inclined to stop at the Jeep garage, were we in the market for a vehicle that truly could go off road and offer some good get-up-and-go. The difference in price, about $30,000 in terms of the base top-end model, would make the Jeep Grand Cherokee an attractive alternative." -- MarketWatch
  • "Expensive to buy and to run, the Sport looks like a million dollars from outside, but inferior fixtures and lackluster tech means that it feels a lot cheaper from the driver's seat." -- CNET
