Expert Quotes:

Anything that isn’t wood-trimmed or covered by leather is made of high-quality materials that we found ourselves mindlessly caressing.
Car and Driver

The Sport has much more front and rear legroom than the larger Range Rover, and no sacrifice in rear headroom.
Cars.com

Additionally, the entire infotainment system is much more intuitive and half of its buttons have been eliminated.
Automobile Magazine

For a vehicle that leads its class on several counts, the Range Rover Sport rates only average in cargo capacity with 71 cubic feet available.
Edmunds

Naturally, the Sport's cabin design is extra-special -- including a unique center console and extra helpings of wood.
Motor Trend

After a full update in 2010, the Range Rover Sport's cabin has carried forward largely unchanged--which is a very, very good thing. A reduction in button count, improved materials, and modern design themes lend a luxury sedan feel with high-riding SUV style.

Interior space is somewhat less than its exterior size would indicate, especially in the rear cargo area, but the cabin offers plenty of storage nooks for smaller items. Passenger space front and rear is very good, even for tall adults.

The entire cabin is lined in high-quality leather, wood, and wool carpeting, which fits the experience you'd expect at the Range Rover Sport's price point. Ride quality can be a bit stiff, but that's the price paid for so much handling and performance.

Wind, road, and engine noise is minimal, though they rise as the speed does, becoming truly noticeable only at extra-legal speeds. As with any vehicle, particularly those with wide tires, some road surfaces can induce tire noise as well.

Conclusion

Though it's smaller inside than you'd expect, and can be noisy at high speeds, the 2012 Range Rover Sport's cabin is comfortable, well-built, and well-finished.

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.
