Land Rover Range Rover Sport

This improved version of the second generation Range Rover Sport gets the option of clever mild hybrid diesel engine technology for the first time. And, as before, it offers amazing all-terrain capability. If you can afford one, there's now very little not to like, thinks Jonathan Crouch

Ten Second Review

The Range Rover Sport came of age in second generation form, bigger, lighter and sharper in its reactions. Now, Land Rover has usefully improved it, adding in MHEV mild hybrid diesel power for the first time in the shape of the freshly added D300 and D350 variants. As you'd expect, this dynamic luxury SUV also gets up-to-the-minute safety and connectivity technology in its latest form, plus there's a 'Low Traction Launch' system for peerless all-terrain capability.

Background

So to the Range Rover Sport. A car that in its original guise was neither a Range Rover or 'sporty'. In fact, it was based almost entirely on the brand's sensible Discovery model and, thanks to that car's practical ladder frame chassis, as about as dynamic to drive. Not so this second generation model, now usefully improved to create the version we're going to look at here. Appropriately, its very existence is properly inspired - and in many ways completely made possible - by the fully-fledged Range Rover. Back in 2012, that car was completely redeveloped in fourth generation form with aluminium underpinnings, sharper handling and hybrid power, engineering eagerly seized upon by the Range Rover Sport development team in their quest to at last be able to offer a credibly sporting SUV rival to cars like the Porsche Cayenne and the BMW X5. These two competitors of course, don't have to blend in unrivalled off road excellence with their back road blasting. They don't have to be automotive swiss army knives - all things to all people - in quite the same way. So, burdened with such expectations, how can this Range Rover Sport take them on at their own game? That's what we're here to find out.

Driving Experience

Can this car really be what Designer Gerry McGovern calls the 'Porsche 911 of SUVs'. The impressive 'Sports Command Driving position' anticipates such a showing - and once on the road, this car delivers it, the impressively light aluminium body structure making it feel a lot more nimble than you expect. Key recent changes beneath the bonnet see the old V6 and V8 diesels replaced by a new in-line six cylinder MHEV mild hybrid diesel, offered in D300 (300PS) and D350 (350PS) forms. This, the brand claims, delivers the efficiency of a V6 with the performance of a V8. The other key engine alternatives are all petrol-powered. There's a base four cylinder 2.0-litre P300 variant with 300PS. And a 3.0-litre six cylinder P400 derivative with 400PS. The Plug-in hybrid petrol P400e variant continues. As does the brand's politically incorrect 5.0-litre supercharged petrol V8 at the top of the range, available in the P525 (525PS) and the top P575 (575PS) SVR high performance models. Off road, as you would expect, this car is peerless, especially if you specify it with a Terrain Response system that'll always choose the perfect off road set-up. There's the further option of Land Rover's latest and very clever All-Terrain Progress Control system and now a clever 'Low Traction Launch' set-up that assists you when pulling away on slippery surfaces. Plus you can now monitor things via what's called an 'All-Terrain Information Centre', accessible via the centre dash touchcreen. For on road use, the quicker models get Torque Vectoring and 'Dynamic Response active lean control' to sharpen things through the bends, plus a 'Dynamic programme' that quickens up throttle response, steering and gearshifts if you're feeling sporty.

Design and Build

Minor changes have been made to the exterior styling in recent years, with more piercing intelligent Matrix Pixel LED headlights sitting alongside a redesigned grille. This is complemented by a restyled bumper with a more aggressive profile. Otherwise, it's as you were, so the clamshell bonnet, the 'floating' roof, the powerful wheelarches and the side fender vents that have always defined this model are all present and correct. And inside? Well, you'd be disappointed if you didn't have to climb up into a Range Rover - that's part of its appeal - though older folk can ease the process by selecting the lower 'Access' mode on models fitted with air suspension. Once installed in the generously side bolstered seats though, there's no mistaking that you're at the wheel of this British institutional model's younger, slightly smaller and much sportier twin. For a start, you're sat a tad lower than you would be in a Range Rover, plus the more compact thicker-rimmed wheel's smaller, the upright gearstick more purposeful and the centre console higher. The key interior change with his revised model lies with the addition of the brand's latest Touch Pro Duo infotainment system which features a pair of high-definition 10-inch touchscreens that form the centrepiece of the minimalist cabin. In the back, there's plenty of room thanks to the large wheelbase and the option of a sliding seat. Which you'll need if you choose the 7-seat option and want to make the atmosphere for third row occupants a bit less cramped. Boot capacity isn't massive at 784-litres, but with the rear bench folded, the 1,784-litre total will be sufficient for most.

Market and Model

Range Rover Sport pricing is pitched into the £68,000 to £115,000 bracket. But there's quite a price gap between this model and the full-fat Range Rover. Essentially, there are two kinds of Range Rover Sport you buy into: lets loosely call these levels 'volume' and 'nice to have'. Most buyers will choose the six cylinder diesel models, the D300 and the D350. As an alternative to these, you might like to look at the P300 four cylinder petrol unit or the 400hp P400 six cylinder petrol powerplant. Maybe even the P400e plug-in petrol derivative. At the other extreme in the line-up, there's the 'extreme' 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol variants, offered either in 525hp P525 'Autobiography Dynamic' form or in P575 575bhp 'SVR' guises. Your minimum trim level is plush 'HSE' and with the volume D300 and P400e variants, there are 'Silver', 'Dynamic' and 'Dynamic Black' variants of it on the way to top 'Autobiohgraphy Dynamic' trim.

Cost of Ownership

When the very first Range Rover Sport was launched, buyers were faced with a choice; reasonable performance or reasonable economy. You couldn't have both. How times have changed. Did you ever imagine that you could own a version of this car able to achieve 88.3mpg on the WLTP combined cycle and capable of putting out no more than 75g/km of CO2? Well, in the form of the P400e four cylinder Plug-in petrol/electric hybrid model, you can now. This PHEV variant offers a 25-mile WLTP-rated all-electric driving range, enough for most owners' daily commute. This derivative's 13.1kWh high-voltage lithium-ion battery can be charged from empty in as little as 2 hours 45 minutes at home using a dedicated or 32amp wall box. If you're limited to using an ordinary plug socket and the 10 amp home charging cable supplied as standard, the battery can be fully charged in 7 hours 30 minutes. As for the more conventional variants, well even the six cylinder D300 and D350 mild hybrid MHEV diesels shouldn't be too expensive to run, being RDE2-certified for lower BiK taxation. The D350 manages 237g/km of WLTP CO2 - far better than the old V8 diesel it replaces. All these figures are helped by Land Rover's decision in developing this MK2 model 'Sport' to create an all-aluminium body structure, thanks to which a huge 39% weight reduction has been possible. The first generation Range Rover Sport weighed 2,583kgs. This one weighs 2115kgs. Enough said. The top 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged petrol model has a big fuel tank - and it'll need it because even though combined cycle fuel economy is rated well below 20mpg, a figure we think you'd only achieve with a very frugal driving style indeed.

Summary

With the fully fledged Range Rover now a plutocratic purchase, it's this Sport model that for us, now most faithfully continues a model line stretching all the way back to the 1970 original. That very first Range Rover was a car you didn't have to be afraid to use as intended, on or off road. And nor is this one. Get the fundamental thing right with any great design - in this case the weight - and everything else then tends to fall into place. The aluminium platform that here makes this car so relatively light solves at a stroke the two issues that blighted the original first generation Range Rover Sport: stodgy handling and high running costs. And yes, it does leave room for proper 4WD hardware to be fitted without compromising paved road prowess. Which is something that German rivals could learn from. True, it's a pity that pricing can't be more affordable. Still, the right version of this car offers exactly the right kind of luxury SUV experience for those fortunate enough to be able to enjoy it. A Range Rover Sport that is in every way a proper Range Rover. Enough said.
