The exterior style of the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport has a familiar attractiveness, but the SUV’s interior is a bit lacking.

Edmunds reviewers are rather enamored of the Range Rover Sport profile: "Overall, it is an enjoyable and luxurious vehicle to drive as well as look at." Cars.com provides an excellent description: It “features an upright grille that's flanked by standard high-intensity-discharge headlights. Other design features include a downward-sloping roofline, side vents in the front fenders, rocker panel moldings and standard 19-inch alloy wheels with low-profile tires." The shape of the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport recalls the classic lines of Range Rovers before the introduction of the Sport model in 2006. Kelley Blue Book goes into more detail: It “manages to combine Range Rover's familiar cubist styling with a raked windscreen and a tapered roofline that makes the vehicle appear as if it is moving quickly, even when at rest."

Cheap trim pieces can be found inside the 2009 Sport, but besides the small confines, the cabin exhibits a refined style with elements such as leather, wood, and wool sprinkled throughout the Sport’s interior. Cars.com notes that the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport interior "is trimmed with simulated metal pieces, but real wood trim is also available." Kelley Blue Book reports, "the gauge lettering is small and difficult to read, and the black-lettered LCD readouts practically disappear when viewed through polarized lenses." ConsumerGuide suggests that "a larger typeface would enhance the legibility of the gauges" of the Land Rover Range Rover Sport 2009 and contends that "climate dials are big and obvious, but effort is required to sort out the multitude of other buttons and knobs," and "setting Terrain Response, hill-descent control, and other off-road gear puzzles the uninitiated."

Conclusion

The exterior of the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is nicely proportioned, but some might want a little more out of the interior.

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.
