Because it's brand-new, the 2014 Range Rover Sport hasn't been crash-tested yet by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Its score here is based on the usual attributes of SUVs, on its aero-style construction, and its safety technology.

All versions come with airbags and stability control, and the Sport's stability system is programmed with lots of subroutines to be run as accident avoidance. There's roll-stability control, trailer-sway control, as well as corner-brake control--all of which apply brakes selectively to neutralize the threat of diminished vehicle control. Hill-start assist and hill-descent control are also standard, as is a rearview camera.

The Sport also will be getting its own dose of the latest technology, including lane departure warnings; blind-spot monitors; proximity sensors; a surround-camera system; parking assist with help for parking in both parallel and perpendicular spots; and automatic high-beam actuation. Some of these features won't be available until later in the 2014 model year.

Land Rover's adaptive cruise control system adds more features this year in the Sport, too. At stop-and-go speeds, the system will bring the Sport to a complete halt, and a tap on the gas will resume cruising speed.

 

Conclusion

Safety gear from blind-spot monitors to surround-view cameras are now available, but crash-test scores still aren't.

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.
