The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a midsize luxury SUV offered in five trim levels: HSE S, HST, Dynamic, Dynamic Autobiography and SVR. Two-row seating is standard than can host 5 people.
The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is available with one of three supercharged engines. Standard on the HSE and HST is a 3.0-liter V6 rated at 340 hp and 332 pound-feet of torque. The Dynamic and Autobiography comes with a 5.0-liter V8 that pumps out 510 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque. The SVR gets a tweaked version of that V8 that's good for 550 hp and 502 lb-ft. All three engines utilize the same eight-speed automatic transmission, though the SVR is treated to sportier programming.
All Range Rover Sport models are also equipped with full-time four-wheel drive, hill descent control and hill start assist. The standard Terrain Response system features driver-selectable modes that optimize the vehicle's powertrain, suspension and electronics for increased traction on various surfaces, while the available Terrain Response 2 variant (bundled with the two-speed transfer case) includes an additional adaptive mode that automatically optimizes settings while you drive.
It's hard to believe that such a heavy, high-riding crossover can handle this well. The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport powers down twisty roads with impressive confidence and stability. Is it as sharp as the Cayenne? No, not quite, unless perhaps you're talking about the SVR. But it's certainly close enough to be a blast through the turns. The "Sport" in this Land Rover's name is not misplaced.
