Kelley Blue Book
The 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is so well equipped with standard features that options are practically gratuitous.
Kelley Blue Book reports that the Land Rover Range Rover Sport 2009 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." Cars.com notes, "for 2009, 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."
Moving on to Land Rover Range Rover Sport options, Kelley Blue Book reports that "Land Rover 2009 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)."
MotherProof is not impressed by what the Range Rover Sport has to offer in terms of options and is 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."
Surprisingly, the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is missing a few features common to less expensive vehicles.
