Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 17 - 32 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

An entry level Range Rover Sport (the TDV6 S) is priced to undercut the equivalent X5, but if you add the Dynamic Response pack it bumps up the price by more than £4000. The pack is less expensive on SE and HSE models. Range Rover Sport running costs will be, well, extortionate. Expect high fuel bills from V8 petrol models but all models will hold their value very well and should be in great demand as a used car.

With its large engines, brute force and average fuel consumption figure of just 24mpg, it's no surprise that Range Rover Sport emissions make it score badly on the eco front. The introduction of a 3.0-litre diesel and 5.0-litre V8 supercharged model in 2009, brought down emissions and lowered the overall average CO2. Newer cars are now much more in line with the lowest emitting large 4x4s, though still high when compared to smaller cars.

Aside from couple of recalls, issues with Range Rover Sport reliability have been few and far between since it went on sale in 2005. It shares many components with the other Land Rovers and some Jaguars, which have also fared well. Land Rover is committed to improving reliability, so this car should continue to be better than previous Land Rovers.
