2007 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Review
This review was written when the 2007 Land Rover Range Rover Sport was new.
The Range Rover Sport delivers a luxurious interior, eye-catching exterior styling and excellent overall performance, both on-road and especially off-road. Fuel economy is particularly poor, even in this class, and quality is still suspect.
The 2007 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a good-looking SUV that can handle any terrain and keep passengers comfortable both in the back country and around the city. "The Range Rover Sport offers the interior panache worthy of the Range Rover name, yet packages it in a vehicle that exudes a much more aggressive nature," writes Kelley Blue Book, adding, "In the dirt the Range Rover Sport can make the novice feel like a pro, and make living with the experienced off-roader simply unbearable."
The interior of the Range Rover Sport widely is seen as very luxurious and full of quality materials and the latest technology. While not yet tested, the SUV is equipped with most of the latest safety equipment seen in vehicles in its class. However, cargo room is not particularly competitive, and fuel economy is downright poor, even for its class.
Most reviewers find the Range Rover Sport to be a better value than the regular Range Rover. Car and Driver says, "Spending an extra $13,000 for the supercharged engine may seem steep, but it's what puts the fun in the Range Rover Sport." Edmunds concurs: "If you're going to spend this much money on an SUV, especially one with a 'Sport' moniker, go for the whole enchilada." IntelliChoice gives the Range Rover Sport a value rating of "Better than average" based on predicted cost of ownership compared to other vehicles in its class.
