2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Walk Around


The Range Rover Sport is smaller than the full-size Range Rover. At first glance, they look similar. Tall, clean body lines and a wide stance convey a purposeful aura. Design details include a sloped roof, stubby front end with nicely integrated headlights, smooth surfaces, and blacked-out roof pillars.

Hood and fender vents suggest the Sport’s capabilities. Roof pillars are blacked-out, wheel areas are prominent, and the rear end is short.

The SVR flaunts a more aggressive stance with its bigger wheels and tires.

Weighing about 100 pounds less than the full-size Range Rover, the Sport is 2.2 inches lower. Some design details were influenced by the curvaceous Evoque.

Interior

Kinship to the larger Range Rover is most evident inside. Most control functions are the province of the Sport’s touchscreen infotainment system, now in 10.2-inch size. Though it works well, the screen displays what might be considered an overabundance of information.

Visible surfaces are covered in wood or leather. All materials, especially in upper trim levels, look classy. Even the base SE model delivers plenty of luxury and comfort.

Each version contains four bucket-type seats, plus a center position in the second row. Outboard occupants get ample room, though less support than the big Range Rover provides.

The optional, stowable third-row seats create a tight space, suitable only for children. The Discovery is a better choice for seven.

Even the cargo area is attractively finished.
