Expert Quotes:

The touch screen is small and awkwardly angled, making operation and navigation programming more difficult than it should be.
Consumer Guide

The Supercharged model also features a Dynamic Mode, tailoring the chassis and powertrain for more sporty and responsive on-road driving.
Edmunds

In one important way we like this navigation system's interface better than that in the Jaguar XFR; there are buttons below the LCD that give quick access to the map, along with the phone and the stereo systems.
CNet

The surround-view camera system is very helpful during off-road excursions, though Range Rover Sport owners would be wise to use it during parking maneuvers to keep those big wheels free of scuffs.
Automobile Magazine

Another change I could live without is the keyless entry transmitter, which is remarkably large.

The Range Rover Sport used to be the "base" Range Rover model, but with the Evoque now in the lineup, it's relieved of those duties. Still, it's not shy about piling on the standard equipment--everything from leather and wood trim, to a navigation system, to a standard Harmon Kardon audio system with 11 speakers and 380 watts of power.

Aside from the difference in engines, the primary differences between the Range Rover Sport HSE and Supercharged are the options. Most of the Supercharged's standard gear is optional on the HSE. However, supercharged versions get red Brembo brake calipers this year, with an option of keeping the stock black ones--for discretion, we suppose.

Upgrades for either model include a rear-seat entertainment system, a beverage cooler, and a wide array of interior individualization. Adaptable air suspension, surround-view cameras, and a choice of alloy wheels are also available, as is a premium audio system with 825 watts of power, 17 speakers, and surround sound.

Other new options introduced for this year include a towing package, now offered across the lineup. It includes a variable rear differential lock that is found on other Range Rover vehicles, and helps keep a tighter rein on axle slippage when off-road driving modes are engaged.

A GT Limited Edition of the supercharged model gets special sport badging, 20-inch wheels, shift paddles, premium audio, and HD radio.

Conclusion

The Range Rover Sport has the usual exotica and electronica; the navigation system's a bit fussy.

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.
