Land Rover Range Rover Sport Interior

Test drivers agree that the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport’s stylish interior layout and first-rate materials make its cabin one of the most luxurious in the class. According to some automotive writers, the 2015 Range Rover Sport’s infotainment system is easy to use. However, others think it lacks the ease of use that you get with some competitors’ infotainment systems. The Range Rover Sport’s cargo space is limited for the class.

  • "… the rakish dashboard, top-notch materials and attractive wood and metal inlays add up to one of the nicest cabins in the segment." -- Edmunds
  • "Premium materials meet tasteful design inside the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport luxury SUV, creating a passenger cabin that offers the modern feel of an Audi interior, but is perhaps a little more elegant in its simplicity." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The Range Rover Sport offers a luxurious interior that features soft-touch materials, leather upholstery, a sport-inspired steering wheel with a small diameter and aluminum trim on the dashboard as well as on the door panels." -- Left Lane News
  • "The interior is awash in leather and piano-black accents-the Sport looks as ritzy inside as the Range Rover." -- Car and Driver (2014)

Seating

The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport comes with seats for five, and an optional third row boosts seating capacity to seven. Leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seats are standard. Heated and cooled front seats, a heated steering wheel and heated second-row seats are available. Reviewers agree that the first- and second-row seats are comfortable, and that there’s a lofty view of the road from the driver’s seat. Critics say that the third row has just enough space for children.

  • "In the cabin, the new sport seats look splendid, and should serve as adequate companions both on and off-road." -- Autoblog
  • "Seat comfort is excellent in front, and the SVR's sport seats take lateral support to a new level. The rear outboard seats are fully adult-friendly, though the middle position, as usual, is only suitable for smaller occupants. As for the third row, Land Rover says it's specifically designed for children, and they're not kidding -- it's pretty tight back there." -- Edmunds
  • "The cabin (now with 4.7 inches more rear seat room) was whisper quiet. The big buckets felt comfortable on and off road and the view out commanding." -- AutoWeek (2014)
  • "The 14-way-adjustable front seats are heated and cooled and just one massage session away from perfect. The riding position is very upright, making it extremely comfortable for long hauls. The second row can serve as two lounge chairs if you fold down the center portion, which becomes an armrest and cupholder." -- Motor Trend (2014)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2015 Range Rover Sport include dual-zone automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, satellite radio, HD Radio, smartphone app integration, an eight-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, an 8-inch touch screen, navigation and a USB port. Options include tri- or quad-zone automatic climate control, a surround camera system that provides a 360-degree view around the vehicle to ease parking maneuvers, a 19-speaker Meridian surround-sound audio system, a rear-seat entertainment system, blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control.

While some reviewers think the Range Rover Sport’s infotainment system is user-friendly, others report that it’s more confusing to use than some rivals’ systems.

  • "The Range Rover Sport's infotainment offering isn't as robust as what you'll find in the Mercedes Benz GL or Audi Q7, for instance, but it has all the phone and audio connectivity we needed in our two days with the car." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The center stack features an eight-inch high-resolution color touch screen that groups the 'ute's entertainment, connectivity and navigation functions into a single easy-to-use bundle that includes Bluetooth connectivity and a voice command function." -- Left Lane News
  • "Controls have been complex in past generations of the Range Rover, but in the 2014 Range Rover Sport they were quite intuitive and easy to operate." -- MSN (2014)
  • "The Sport's shifter, like some other luxury automakers-cough, BMW, cough, cough-is deliberately cumbersome, requiring multiple moves to change gears. Want ‘Neutral’? Slide the lever down to ‘N.’ But ‘Drive’ and ‘Reverse’ require pushing a button on the backside of the lever. And ‘Park’ is another separate button on the top of the shifter. It's all a little frustrating." -- Road and Track (2014)

Cargo

The 2015 Range Rover Sport offers 27.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row of seats and 62.2 cubic feet with the second row folded. That’s less cargo space than what many luxury midsize SUVs offer. Still, a few reviewers say that the Range Rover Sport has useful storage areas throughout the cabin.

  • “Designed for children and teenagers, the optional third row of seats eats up most of the SUV's cargo capacity when in use but conveniently folds flat into the trunk floor when not needed." -- Left Lane News
  • "If we calculated cargo capacity per pound, the massive Range Rover Sport would certainly be one of the lowest-ranked SUVs." -- Edmunds
  • "… the Range Rover provides loads of useful storage, including an optional cool box in the center console." -- Popular Mechanics (2014)
