For 2008, the Range Rover Sport gets more power equipment
Cars.com

Here again, TheCarConnection.com notes a plethora of standard features that almost make 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport options superfluous.

Cars.com notes "for 2008, the Range Rover Sport gets more power equipment. It now has power-folding side mirrors, an eight-way power passenger seat and a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel." Kelley Blue Book reports that the Land Rover Range Rover Sport 2008 HSE trim is "equipped with a naturally-aspirated 4.4-liter V8, six-speed ZF automatic transmission with CommandShift manual-shift mode, electronic air suspension, 19-inch alloy wheels, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Hill Descent Control (HDC), Terrain Response four-wheel-drive system, traction control, front side-impact airbags, side-curtain airbags, bi-xenon headlamps, fog lamps, eight-way power driver's seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, park distance control, Bluetooth phone integration, harman/kardon LOGIC 7 stereo with six-disc MP3/CD audio and 14 speakers and DVD GPS navigation with voice recognition and seven-inch LCD view screen."

Moving on to Land Rover Range Rover Sport options, Kelley Blue Book reports that "Land Rover 2008 options include a Cold Climate Package (HSE), rear-seat entertainment package with two headrest-mounted LCD monitors, adaptive headlamps, adaptive cruise control (on the Supercharged trim level), SIRIUS Satellite Radio, locking rear differential, Dynamic Response suspension and 20-inch alloy wheels (HSE)."

Mother Proof is not so much impressed in what the Range Rover Sport has to offer in terms of options as disappointed in what is absent: "there's no backup camera, no power liftgate...and there's no auxiliary jack for an MP3 player." This source also complains that although the front console has "a nifty cooler box," it "wasn't useful on a day-to-day basis."

Conclusion

The 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport has a lengthy list of features and options, but it lacks a few items common on less expensive vehicles.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
