While the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport share similar names and offer drivers the same powerful engines, impressive off-road capability, and exquisite interiors, that is where the similarities end. If you’re in the market for a Land Rover, and can’t decide between the two, here’s a quick look at four aspects of each model to help you get started on deciding which is the right one for you.

Range Rover and Range Rover Sport

A Quick Look at the Land Rover Range Rover and Range Rover Sport


When buying a car, one of the first things we look at is the price. These two opulent SUVs are definitely at the higher end of the spectrum, but when it comes to an outright comparison, the Sport wins hands down. 

The 2017 Range Rover basic model starts around $97,950, while the Range Rover Sport starts at $64,950. Both offer a variety of upgrades which will increase the price tag exponentially.


While neither vehicle has been rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, both come standard with multiple safety features including seven airbags, lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors, and a rearview camera. Additional options include adaptive cruise control, a traffic sign recognition system, active parallel park assist, a 360-degree camera system, and blind spot monitoring.


Both the base 2017 Range Rover and The Sport come with a 340-horsepower supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine. Also available are two supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engines, including a 510-horsepower version, and a high-performance 550-horsepower version. However, only the Range Rover offers an upgraded supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that brings an additional 40 horses.

Both vehicles also feature a standard eight-speed automatic transmission on all models which is said to be a great transmission. 

As far as steering and braking, both vehicles are rated high, and offer a smooth comfortable ride, although the Sport has a smaller turning radius than the Land Rover Range Rover making it easier to get in and out of tight spots.


Both models feature luxurious interiors with lots of perks such as premium finishes, heated steering wheels and seats, and impressive noise reduction. They also each offer two rows of seats, although only the Sport also offers the option of a third row.

When it comes to headroom and leg room, there’s not much difference between the two, although rear seat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Range Rover than in the Range Rover Sport.
