Interiors – Range Rover cars have mastered the art of making you feel extremely special every time you enter their cabins. The interior of this SUV is quite premium with plush leather everywhere. The layout does not look dated as Land Rover have now incorporated two-touch screens on the dashboard. The one above comes out ever so slightly when you start the car to match your viewing angle. It is a neat touch and the infotainment system is an impressive effort. The graphics are crisp and the touch interface is quite responsive. It is the bottom screen that tells you the info of the climate settings and the off-road configuration. We particularly like the attention to detail and clever animations on this screen.
The dual touch-screen infotainment and climate control system gives the Range Rover Sport a polished and upmarket feel
The driving position is spot on and it is unlikely you’ll find yourself wanting for better adjustment. You sit high up and the front seats are supremely comfortable. The instrument cluster is all-digital and the steering controls, which are essentially small displays, change to the setting that you are in. The quality of materials is superb with soft-touch materials adorning most visual areas. Quality of some controls and buttons could’ve been better, however, as a whole, the interior feels fitting to a car of this price.
There is nothing to complain about when it comes to equipment. The Sport is available in three trim levels – S, SE, and HSE. Standard equipment includes 8-way powered front seats, ambient lighting, park assist, two-zone climate control amongst others. The top-spec HSE trim gives you a premium Meridian sound system, 16-way seat adjust, three-zone climate control and plusher Windsor leather seats.
The cabin is extremely spacious and luxurious with incredible attention to detail and rich leather all around
The rear seats are as good as those in the front with thick cushioning and lots of space. Details like the touch-sensitive reading light add to the character of the back seat. That said, we found the centre seat to be a little uncomfortable and the child seat locks were difficult to access. Those aren’t major shortcomings and we think you’ll be happy being chauffeured in the Range Rover Sport.
