The 2019 model car features a high-end cabin. A four-door, five-passenger configuration enables the driver to either pack for an extended trip or include family and friends.
Athletic, stable and easily controlled, the Range Rover Sport is the ideal search result on many sitemaps as a car for outdoor enthusiasts and those who like the power offered by the Sport cars.
Average fuel economy is estimated at 17/23 city/highway. The 3.0 L V-6 engine offers a hefty 340 HP with 332 pound-feet of torque. The eight-speed automatic transmission automatically shifts to match the speed, the terrain and the road conditions to save you trouble and offer you an effortless drive.
The Land Rover and Range Rover Sport have three powertrain options. Models that have the Td6 badge are powered by a 254-HP turbocharged diesel 3.0L V6 engine. The new 2019 Range Rover Sport is now available in two engine configurations: the P360 at 355 horsepower and the P400 at 395 horsepower.
The inline-six is a hybrid version with a 48-volt electric motor. Combined, the gas engine and the electric motor produce a combined 332-horsepower thrust. All Range Rover Sports come equipped with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
As with all the Land Rover vehicle models, the 2019 Range Rover Sport delivers. The stunningly tailored and upscale cabin features genuine leather upholstery. A power-adjustable steering column, interior lighting and dual-zone climate control come standard.
If you upgrade to the fancier HSE model, you will be treated to soft Windsor leather seats that feature heating for the driver and the front passenger. A fixed-glass panoramic sunroof will provide you with stunning views of the sky and a sense of openness and tranquility.
You’ll also receive an 11-speaker Meridian sound system. If desired, you can opt for a third row of seats. However, these rearmost seats will be a tight squeeze for most average sized adults and is best suited for children and young teenagers. The view to the rear will also be reduced.
The InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system features two screens, one to control navigation options, radio, and media, and a second one mounted beneath for climate control, drive modes and vehicle settings. If you want, you can add the all-new Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ at no additional cost.
However, more advanced features such as Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Speed Limiter, Lane Keep Assist, Park Package, Off-road Package and Vision Assist Package are all an additional charge.
If you are interested in a Range Rover Land Rover model but want to spend a little less money, you can consider the smaller Land Rover Range Rover Evoque and the Land Rover Discovery. Both the Rover Discovery and the Rover Evoque are comparable to the Sport model with a few differences.
The Rover Evoque features a cabin with a classy design and a robust engine. Off-road driving is actually fun with the Evoque, with its athletic design and its driver-oriented specs. However, the Evoque tends to be a little rough with changing gears and can have less cargo space.
The Discovery Sport is close to the Land Rover Sport in rankings at 8.3 out of 10. Unlike the Evoque, the Discovery features plenty of room in the cabin and the cargo area and excellent fuel economy with the diesel engine configuration. However, fuel economy with the base engine on the Discovery Sport is less than average for the class.
If you want a type of Range Rover Land Rover vehicle such as the Rover Evoque, but do not want to pay the full MSRP, you can consider purchasing a pre-owned model from a certified dealer. Pre-owned models in both Discovery Sport, Discovery, Evoque, LR2 and LR4 trim levels are available at select certified dealerships.
Certified pre-owned vehicles are tested against specific standards to determine their eligibility. These pre-owned vehicles come with a warranty, just like they would if you purchased them brand-new, and are guaranteed for a specific number of miles/years.
The Discovery Sport, the Range Rover Velar, the Range Rover Evoque and other Land Rover vehicles receive their certifications through a rigorous 165-point inspection and are protected up to seven years or 100,000 miles, whichever one comes first. Complimentary roadside service is included with this certified package, making it a great deal for someone who wants the reliability of the Land Rover, the Range Rover Velar, and the Range Rover Evoque while still saving on the payment cost of a brand-new vehicle.
The Rover Velar is another dynamic choice in the luxury midsize SUV class that is comparable to the Sport. It is similar in many ways with features and cabin accessories and details. However, the Velar tends to ride smoother than the Sport.
With a greater fuel economy and more cargo space, some people would gravitate toward the Rover Velar for these reasons alone. The price for the Velar is also lower. The high trim level Velar R-Dynamic HSE costs less than $10,000 more than the base Sport Velar.
On the downside, the engine configurations available for the Rover Velar are small compared to the Rover Sport. The Sport also has a higher maximum towing capacity than some of its Range family competitors.
Maintenance for the Range Rover Sport is minimal if performed on schedule. Don't skip regular oil changes, as these will help extend the life of the engine. Don't ignore appropriate tire maintenance pressures and tune-ups/checkups. Consult your Rover Sport owner’s manual to find the exact time frames to ensure that you get the most drive out of your model of Range Rover Evoque.
