5 reasons to buy the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

1. Powerful yet relatively frugal engines 

Both engine choices for the 2014 Range Rover Sport offer strong and fuel-sipping performance. Standard SE models get a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine, packing 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, while also achieving an EPA-estimated 23 mpg on the highway.

For more power, Supercharged models get a 5.0L V8 engine. Output increases to 510 horsepower and 461 lb-ft of torque, while still managing an EPA-estimated 19 mpg on the highway.

2. Roomy premium cabin 

The 2014 Range Rover Sport really does put the ‘luxury’ into ‘luxury SUV’, with a roomy cabin adorned with comfort features. There’s seating for up to five passengers inside, with 42.2 inches of front seat legroom and 37 inches of second row legroom. An optional third-row seat boosts capacity to seven passengers, with all occupants enjoying leather upholstery and dual-zone automatic climate control as standard, and self-levelling air suspension providing a comfortable ride. 

3. Rich feature list 

Speaking of features, the 2014 Range Rover Sport is stacked with luxury equipment across the range. Base SE models can be equipped with the HSE option package, which adds a panoramic sunroof, heated front seats, and enhanced perforated leather upholstery. The Supercharged trim also includes the HSE kit as standard, and can be had with the Autobiography package which adds heated rear seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a console cooler compartment. 

4. Capable off-road handling 

For when adventure is calling, the 2014 Range Rover Sport is just as capable off-road as it is on-road. All models come with all-wheel-drive, hill descent control, hill start assist, and the Land Rover Terrain Response® system, with selectable drive modes for different surfaces like gravel, mud, and sand. For maximum off-road capabilities, pick the Supercharged trim to add a two-speed transfer case, rear limited-slip differential, and upgraded suspension with adaptive damping and roll stabilization.  

5. Useful towing capacity 

To round off its versatility as the ideal adventure companion, the 2014 Range Rover Sport also provides ample pulling power for when you want to bring a trailer with you. Regardless of engine choice, all 2014 Range Rover Sport models can achieve a maximum towing capacity of 7,700 lbs when properly equipped.
