​The Range Rover Sport is only available as a five-seater, so you’ll have to look towards the seven-seat Range Rover or Discovery models if you need your Land Rover to carry extra passengers, while the Defender 110 and 130 versions offer six and eight-seat capacity respectively.

Step inside the Sport though and you won’t be left wanting for luxury – the cabin is trimmed in suitably high-quality materials, including Windsor leather upholstery as standard, while 20-way electrically-adjustable front seats ensure the driver should easily be able to find a comfortable position.

Upgrade to either the Autobiography or First Edition trim levels and you’ll benefit from 22-way heated and ventilated front seats with memory and massage functions. Rear passengers aren’t forgotten either, with heated and ventilated power recline seats with winged headrests.

Size

Although the Range Rover Sport is positioned as the more agile, dynamic model compared to its Range Rover sibling, it’s still a giant of an SUV. The Sport measures 4,946mm long which is 106mm shy of the Range Rover, but overall width (with mirrors out) is the same at 2,209mm, with just a 50mm difference in height – 1,820mm for the Sport vs 1,870mm for the Range Rover.

Compare the Sport’s dimensions to a mid-size family SUV and you really notice the contrast in size. For example, a Hyundai Tucson is 4,500mm long and 1,865mm wide, while height is 1,651mm.

​​Leg room, head room and passenger space

Interior space in the Sport is good, although we’d expect there to be a little more room in the rear. Rivals such as the Audi Q7 provide better head and knee room for rear passengers, although the Sport should offer enough space for most.

Boot

A 657-litre boot should be able to swallow most luggage needs, while folding the rear seats opens up a van-like 1,860 litres of load space. Thanks to clever packaging the Sport also has room for a spare wheel (which comes as standard) below the boot floor

Towing

It’s good news for buyers who want to use their Range Rover Sport for towing duties – all models are capable of pulling up to 3,500kg with the exception of the P460e and p550e plug-in hybrids, which have a 3,000kg towing capacity.
