2007 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Land Rover’s venerable Range Rover can tackle tough offroad terrain that would foil less-capable SUVs, yet still has the cachet to warrant a front-and-center parking space at upscale hotels. Fortunately, much of the Range Rover’s style has carried over to the automaker’s less expensive Range Rover Sport, as well as some of its offroad-ready hardware. To be clear, the Range Rover is unrelated to the Range Rover Sport, which shares its platform with the LR3.

For 2007, the Range Rover Sport’s standard features include Bluetooth, one-touch operation for the front passenger’s power window and a new clock in the instrument panel. Sirius Satellite Radio is standard on the Supercharged V-8. The Supercharged model comes with a choice of light cherry or dark oak wood accents and optional Stormer 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

Exterior
The Range Rover Sport features an upright mesh grille that’s flanked by standard high-intensity-discharge headlights. Other design features include a downward-sloping roofline, side vents in the front fenders, rocker panel moldings and standard 19-inch alloy wheels with low-profile tires. Twenty-inch wheels are optional on the base HSE trim and standard on Supercharged models. The liftgate features an independently opening rear window that provides access to the cargo area, and the roof rack can carry up to 165 pounds. Adaptive headlights that swivel to better illuminate turns are optional.

Vehicle Overview
Land Rover’s venerable Range Rover can tackle tough offroad terrain that would foil less-capable SUVs, yet still has the cachet to warrant a front-and-center parking space at upscale hotels. Fortunately, much of the Range Rover’s style has carried over to the automaker’s less expensive Range Rover Sport, as well as some of its offroad-ready hardware. To be clear, the Range Rover is unrelated to the Range Rover Sport, which shares its platform with the LR3.

For 2007, the Range Rover Sport’s standard features include Bluetooth, one-touch operation for the front passenger’s power window and a new clock in the instrument panel. Sirius Satellite Radio is standard on the Supercharged V-8. The Supercharged model comes with a choice of light cherry or dark oak wood accents and optional Stormer 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

Exterior
The Range Rover Sport features an upright mesh grille that’s flanked by standard high-intensity-discharge headlights. Other design features include a downward-sloping roofline, side vents in the front fenders, rocker panel moldings and standard 19-inch alloy wheels with low-profile tires. Twenty-inch wheels are optional on the base HSE trim and standard on Supercharged models. The liftgate features an independently opening rear window that provides access to the cargo area, and the roof rack can carry up to 165 pounds. Adaptive headlights that swivel to better illuminate turns are optional.

Interior
The Range Rover Sport’s five-person interior is trimmed with simulated metal pieces, but real cherry wood trim is also available. Heated leather seats are optional, and there are adjustable inboard armrests. Interior cargo room measures 33.8 cubic feet but grows to 71 cubic feet when the 65/35-split rear bench seat is folded.

Entertainment options include Sirius Satellite Radio and a rear-seat six-DVD changer system.

Under the Hood
Two engines are offered. HSE models use a 300-horsepower, 4.4-liter V-8 that makes 315 pounds-feet of torque, and Supercharged versions have a 390-hp, supercharged 4.2-liter V-8 that develops 410 pounds-feet of torque. Both engines drive a six-speed automatic transmission with a clutchless-manual mode that sends power to each wheel through a permanent four-wheel-drive system. Both the HSE and the Supercharged version can tow up to 7,716 pounds when properly equipped.

Safety
Standard features include antilock brakes, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags, an electronic stability system with rollover mitigation technology, and front and rear parking sensors. The rear seats have child-safety seat anchors, and Supercharged models can be equipped with adaptive cruise control that maintains a preset distance between the Range Rover Sport and a vehicle in front of it.

Driving Impressions
This SUV has a stable, confident highway ride, and its large windows and high seating position give the driver a commanding view of the road. The large C-pillars, however, limit visibility. There’s minimal wind noise at highway speeds.

The four-wheel independent air suspension delivers ride quality that’s on the firm side; bumps and holes are felt and heard. Land Rover says the optional Dynamic Response antiroll system works to control body roll, and it did so handily when driving the Range Rover Sport on twisty roads — especially when you consider its near 6-foot height and 5,500-pound curb weight. The rack-and-pinion steering system manages to cancel out pavement imperfections before they reach the driver’s hands, but it doesn’t provide much feedback.

The HSE’s acceleration can only be described as adequate, and the engine works hard to propel this portly SUV. Opting for the more powerful Supercharged model drops the zero-to-60-mph run by one full second to a claimed 7.2 seconds. There’s relatively little gas mileage penalty with the Supercharged version, as both models require premium unleaded gas, and their city and highway fuel economy estimates are only 1 mpg apart — EPA estimates are 14/19 mpg (city/highway) for the HSE and 13/18 for the Supercharged.

The six-speed automatic shifts smoothly, but when accelerating from a standstill the transmission had an annoying tendency to upshift quickly to keep engine rpm low, a measure meant to save fuel. The transmission’s Sport mode allows the engine to spin faster before shifting. Transmission kickdowns were prefaced by a slight delay.

2007 only driven 46,000 miles but very reliable.

by D. Finch from Statesboro, Georgia on November 11, 2019

Only complaint is mine is Supercharged and it eats up the tires even though I don't drive fast. I will definitely buy this vehicle again but plan to keep for a few more years since mine is paid off ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
