Range Rover Sport 2021
Range Rover Sport 2021
Slightly smaller and slender than the regular Range Rover, the Range Rover Sport offers the same luxury and style at a less painful price. Mechanically, Range Rovers aren’t much different, and if we’re being honest, going with the least expensive Sport doesn’t require giving up much in the luxury department. All Sport models come standard with all-wheel drive , and Land Rover offers a range of engines to choose from including a petrol-fueled engine,
A four-cylinder hybrid engine, and a turbocharged diesel. The handling here is more edgy than it is in the larger Range Rover, but the Sport wouldn’t fool anyone into thinking it was a sports sedan; Choose one from the expensive and brutal Supercharged or SVR Sports (reviewed separately) for a more performance-oriented experience. In keeping with Land Rover’s heritage, great off-road capability is also standard, but we can’t imagine most owners would explore the limits of an SUV on the road. Instead, most Range Rover Sportscars will faithfully serve as elegant, luxurious family cruisers.
A Land Rover has made some changes to the mid-size Range Rover Sport for 2021. Along with a revised interior ionizer, the HSE Silver Edition joins the lineup, and the Premium Black Pack appearance package is now available on HSE Dynamic. The HSE Silver Edition comes standard with a silver livery and unique 21-inch black wheels with a diamond finish. The Premium Black Pack adds black exterior finishes and 21- or 22-inch wheels painted gloss black.
Land Rover Ranger offers the Range Rover Sport in a variety of trim levels for 2021. All offer an impressive blend of luxury and performance. There is nothing wrong with the set. Our favorite group, however, is the HST, which is powered by the brand’s 3.0-liter mild-hybrid 6-liter turbo tuned to produce 395 horsepower. We also appreciate the HST’s sporty visual touches, such as its black roof and interior upgrades,
That includes a suede-wrapped steering wheel and seats. However, the HSE Silver Edition is the best value. It’s much better equipped than the SE and costs about $10,000 less than the HST. Its six-cylinder version with 355 horsepower is very powerful.
Every 2021 Range Rover Sport comes equipped with the premium Land Rover all-wheel drive system and an exceptional eight-speed automatic transmission. However, Land Rover offers SUVs with four different engines, including a diesel, plug-in hybrid, and mild hybrid. They all offer great performance; However ,
Our favorite is the more powerful 395-horsepower version of the mild-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine on the HST. It is exceptionally soft and contains a lot of muscle. The SE and HSE models get a 355 hp version of this engine, which is also excellent. Diesel-powered variants of the SE and HSE get better fuel mileage, but they aren’t as fast as mild hybrid models or plug-in hybrid models. Those looking for more performance should check out the Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged/SVR alternatives. We review them separately.
A mild-hybrid-powered Range Rover Sports or charging doesn’t need to be connected, but the P400e models, which feature a hybrid powertrain, must be connected frequently to take advantage of the gas savings. Technique. The P400e is powered by a 13.1 kWh battery pack located under the rear charging floor. It can be fully charged from a 120V outlet, but takes up to 14 hours. A 240-volt outlet or trips to a public charging station can charge your SUV more quickly. Land Rover says it offers up to 31 miles of electric driving range per charge.
With so many different engines available, the Range Rover Sport’s EPA’s estimated fuel economy is a bit choppy, as the numbers are still being updated. Diesel models are rated at 22 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. Fuel economy estimates for the Range Rover Sport PHEV aren’t particularly fuel efficient, but it’s the only model that can run on electricity only for short periods.
Inside, the 2021 Range Rover Sport has the same dimensions as the full-size Range Rover. Both SUVs share the same 115-inch wheelbase, giving the Range Rover Sport more rear seat space than you’ll find in many of its competitors. Unlike the Range Rover, the Range Rover Sport is also available with a small child-friendly third-row seat, which takes seating capacity from five to seven. However, the third row is not available on plug-in hybrid models. Front seats are firm and supportive, especially on long trips, and air conditioning vents and rear seat controls are standard. Heated rear seats are available. superior build quality,
With smooth surfaces and controls that look and feel expensive. Behind the second row of the Range Rover Sport is a generous 28 cubic feet of storage space. PHEV models offer 3.0 cubic feet less because their battery pack is stowed below the charging area, raising the SUV’s cargo floor by two inches. The Rover’s second-row reclining folds easily, expanding the space to 59.0 cubic feet of space, roughly average for a mid-size luxury SUV class.
The 2021 Range Rover Sport has been noticeably redesigned just two years ago, with the climate and infotainment systems being controlled by two large 10.0-inch touch screens. The design is undoubtedly modern and attractive. It’s also easy to use with intuitive menus and clean graphics, but the infotainment system is a bit slow to respond to user input. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration is standard, and another 12.3-inch screen in front of the driver shows a fully configurable digital instrument cluster.
The Range Rover Sport has not been tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, so its crash performance is not documented. Land Rover offers several coveted driver assistance technology systems, but many such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist are optional, which is disappointing given the SUV’s high price tag.
