In Edmunds brake testing, a Range Rover Sport Supercharged slowed from 60 mph to zero in 123 feet, an impressive result for an SUV that weighs nearly 6,000 pounds.

Like many luxury vehicles that sell in small volumes, the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Sport doesn't have any crash-test data to confirm the assumptions about its safety.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has put the Sport through a full series of crash tests, and we don't expect that either will, since the Sport is nearing the end of its current model cycle.

Even so, the middle Range Rover has the usual and some cutting-edge standard safety equipment. All versions get standard dual front, side, and curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control with roll control; hill descent control; and active headrests.

The Supercharged model is also available with radar adaptive cruise control that works with the emergency braking system to scan the road and detect possible collisions, aiding the driver in braking.

All Sports have the Range Rover four-wheel-drive system as well, which integrates a handful of traction modes with a locking differential to accommodate drivers putting it through its paces on a huge variety of surfaces--from bone-dry pavement to sloppy, knee-deep mud and glare ice.

Both versions of the Range Rover Sport offer excellent visibility thanks to plenty of glass, a low beltline, and a high seating position, though rearward visibility is somewhat reduced by thick pillars at the very back of the vehicle.

Conclusion

No crash-test scores are available, but the Range Rover Sport has some of the latest high-tech safety equipment.

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.
