Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Editor's note: This review was done in March 2013 about the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport. Little of substance has changed with this year's model.

What Is the 2015 Range Rover Sport?

The 2015 Range Rover Sport is a four-wheel-drive luxury SUV from Land Rover that seats five or seven. It's available in five trim levels: SE, HSE, Supercharged, Autobiography and SVR. The Range Rover Sport competes with the BMW X5BMW X6, Porsche Cayenne and Mercedes-Benz M-Class. The regular Range Rover, without the Sport, is a more expensive model covered separately.

What's New on the 2015 Range Rover Sport?

The SVR trim level is new for 2015 in the Range Rover Sport, and it includes unique design elements, a sport-tuned chassis and a supercharged V-8 engine. In addition, an available Driver Assistance Package with lane departure warning, surround parking sensors and a self-parking system is new. Satellite and HD radio are now standard.

How Does the 2015 Range Rover Sport Compare to Other Luxury SUVs?

The Range Rover Sport's base trim has fuel economy similar to the Porsche Cayenne's and BMW X6's. In terms of maximum cargo room, it offers slightly less than the Cayenne but 2.5 cubic feet more than the X6. Compared with the regular Range Rover, it doesn't deliver as much off-road capability.

What Features in the 2015 Range Rover Sport Are Most Important?

The 2015 Range Rover Sport comes standard with a 340-horsepower, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6, an eight-speed automatic transmission and full-time four-wheel drive. The Supercharged and Autobiography trim levels come with a 510-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, and the SVR trim increases that engine's power output to 550 hp. A single-speed Torsen center differential with low range and a locking rear differential are both available. In addition, an air suspension system is standard, and an available Terrain Response 2 system can adapt to changing road surfaces.

Significant standard features include 19-inch alloy wheels, a lightweight aluminum structure and an 8-inch touchscreen. Available features include a two-tone paint scheme, a panoramic moonroof, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a cooled console box and 20-, 21- or 22-inch wheels. The Range Rover Sport also offers the choice among four aluminum trim finishes, two wood veneers, three headliner colors and three Meridian audio systems.

As required in all new cars of the 2015 model year, the Range Rover Sport includes an electronic stability system, antilock brakes and front airbags. It comes standard with front side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags, hill start assist, hill descent control and roll stability control. A blind spot warning system with reverse-traffic detection, a surround camera system and lane departure warning are available.

Should I Buy the 2015 Range Rover Sport?

The Range Rover Sport's lighter frame results in better gas mileage and performance than in earlier generations, and its interior is comfortable and well-appointed. However, you'll have to deal with excessive body roll in corners, and its price may turn away some buyers. Inside the car, child seats prove difficult to install, and the third row is cramped, making the Sport difficult to recommend for families.

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.
