2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

What it is: The Range Rover Sport uses a platform derived from Land Rover’s flagship Range Rover SUV. It features a lightweight aluminum structure, standard full-time four-wheel drive and a choice of three engines: a supercharged 3.0-liter gas V-6, a turbo-diesel 3.0-liter V-6 or a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8. A third-row bench seat is optional and provides seating for seven. Competitors include the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class and Porsche Cayenne.
New for 2017
New features include Blind Spot Assist, an Intelligent Speed Limiter that uses road signs to set the SUV’s speed, and Advanced Tow Assist.

Great value and trade in

This vehicle is a great style and was a great buy for the value of the deal. A 2017 with only 5500 miles was like buying a new car

5.0

This is the best purchase I’ve ever made

This car is absolutely my dream car and the employees helped me so much and were so nice really made me feel at home. The car is luxurious and drives so smoothly and feels very safe

5.0

Stylish, Sexy, Powerful and Fun!

Our best friend passed and I'm helping to sell his car for the family. When I took it out to take some pics, I was instantly in love. For such a big car (I'm used to my hybrid Altiima), it handles so well. Sporty and fast. It feels better than my husbands X3.
