2016 Range Rover Sport Review

If it’s power you seek, power you shall have. The Range Rover Sport comes with three different engine and transmission options: 3.0-liter supercharged V-6, 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6, and 5.0-liter supercharged V-8. The 3.0-liter V-6 is under the hood of the SE and HSE trim, 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 is married to the SE Td6 and HSE Td6, and the behemoth 5.0-liter v-8 belongs to the SVR. In addition to engine power, each of the above trim options includes decent cargo space (17.3 cubic feet) and ample seating comfort for passengers.

The SE features standard goodies including 19-inch alloy wheels, HID headlights with LED accents, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, leather upholstery, a rearview camera, keyless entry, interior mood lighting, navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, 8-inch infotainment screen, and a power tailgate. If customers wish to upgrade, they can do so with the InControl App suite that features a Meridian premium audio system, 360-degree view camera, the Terrain Response 2 system for improved off-road capability, and rear-seat entertainment. The higher trim options include all of the above with the addition of a panoramic sunroof, perforated leather upholstery, sport seats, and larger alloy wheels ranging from 20 to 21 inches.
