2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Overview

Is the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport a Good Used SUV?

The 2015 Range Rover Sport has an appealing mix of muscular engines, superb off-roading capabilities, and a luxurious interior. However, it has just as many flaws, including poor fuel economy, low predicted reliability, and a high projected cost of ownership, that should give buyers pause before making a commitment.

Used 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Performance and Interior

The word "sport" isn't part of the name for nothing, as evidenced by the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport’s powerful engine lineup. It comes standard with a 340-horsepower V6. A 510-horsepower supercharged V8 is available. The SVR model – which was new for 2015 – comes with a 550-horsepower V8. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard in all models.

The base engine produces more than enough power to please most drivers. Both V8s have exceptional power delivery and spirited acceleration. Additionally, the transmission is quick-shifting.The Range Rover Sport gets anywhere from 14 to 17 mpg in the city and 19 to 22 mpg on the highway, which is poor for the class.

This SUV has a smooth ride, sharp handling, and responsive steering, giving it a good balance of sportiness and comfort. Four-wheel drive is standard; the Range Rover Sport confidently off-roads over snow, mud, sand, and rock.

The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport seats up to seven with its optional third row. Leather upholstery is standard. Available features include heated and cooled front seats, a panoramic sunroof, a heated steering wheel, and heated second-row seats. The first and second rows have plenty of leg- and headroom, but the optional third row is best left to children. There are lower anchors and tethers for child seats on the second-row outboard seats.

Standard features in the Range Rover Sport include HD Radio, smartphone integration, an eight-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, an 8-inch touch screen, keyless entry, a USB port, and a navigation system. Available features include a 19-speaker sound system and a rear-seat entertainment system. The infotainment system is generally easy to use, thanks to its intuitive controls. Still, it may take some time to get used to.

There is 27.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and 62.2 cubic feet with the second row folded. This is less than many rivals.

Should I Consider Another Used Range Rover Sport?

The 2015 Range Rover Sport is part of this model's second generation, which began with the 2014 model year and includes the 2017 model. A turbodiesel V6 was introduced for the 2016 model year, and 2015 saw the introduction of the high-performance SVR trim and new available safety features. If you're not interested in those features, opt for a 2014 model; you’ll save money and get a largely similar vehicle.

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

The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport comes in five trims: SE, HSE, Supercharged, Autobiography, and the new-for-2015 SVR. For the best combination of value and features, go with the Supercharged model. It comes with the more powerful V8 engine and the best off-roading features – such as Terrain Response, which automatically recognizes terrain conditions and optimizes the SUV's settings for the best ride. Other standard features include heated front seats, front and rear park assist, an 8-inch touch screen, smartphone integration, and navigation.

You might consider spending a bit more money on a certified pre-owned Range Rover Sport. Land Rover extends its original new-car warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles for certified pre-owned vehicles. Every CPO Land Rover must pass a 165-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Land Rover warranty page carefully.

2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport or 2015 Porsche Cayenne?

The Porsche Cayenne can't live up to the Range Rover Sport's top-notch off-road performance. On the other hand, the Cayenne has better handling and acceleration befitting its status as a Porsche. It also surpasses the Sport in another important area: reliability. The Cayenne earns a 4.5 out of five for predicted reliability. Both the Cayenne and Range Rover Sport have upscale interiors and high costs of ownership. The Sport, however, has a longer list of standard features and a more powerful base engine. If you're looking for the best of both worlds – luxury and off-roading abilities – you can't beat the Range Rover Sport. Otherwise, you'll be better off going with the Porsche and its greater reliability and athleticism.

Which Is Better: 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport or 2015 Land Rover Range Rover?

The Land Rover Range Rover is a luxury large SUV that offers more cargo space and just a bit more rear-seat legroom than the Range Rover Sport. Both SUVs have similar power and off-road prowess, but the Range Rover offers slightly more standard features. However, these features don't justify its (much) higher price tag. Both SUVs have low reliability and a high projected cost of ownership, so go with the Range Rover Sport to save yourself money.

Which Is Better: 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport or 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque?

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is a luxury subcompact SUV, so don't expect a roomy back seat or much cargo space. However, you'll still get a luxurious interior and impressive off-roading capabilities. The Evoque is available in coupe or four-door body styles with some coupe models only seating four. It receives the same poor predicted reliability as the Range Rover Sport, but it has a lower projected cost of ownership. Both Land Rovers come with similar standard features. To make a decision between the two, you’ll have to consider how much cargo and passenger space you need as well as how much you want to spend.
