2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

The 2016 Land Rover Range Rover and the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport are both premium luxury SUVs that stand apart from the pack thanks to their unique styling, outstanding off-road performance, and immaculately equipped cabins. While they both deliver in the areas that count, there are some important differences to consider before making your choice. Find out what they are before driving from Naples or Marco Island to check them out at Land Rover Fort Myers.

Features

These vehicles are among the most elite luxury SUVs on the market today, so it should come as no surprise that they are offered with quite similar high-end equipment in the cabin. You can look forward to premium leather upholstery, an 8-inch touchscreen interface, a navigation system, and the InControl Apps suite. As the higher end model, though, the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover comes with a few noticeable benefits, including standard ambient lighting and tri-zone climate control. These can be purchased on the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport but only as part of an upgrade.

Also, the Land Rover Range Rover has a 13-speaker, 19-speaker, or 29-speaker Meridian stereo system. The Land Rover Range Rover Sport, on the other hand, gets an eight-speaker factory sound system standard or the option to upgrade to a 23-speaker Meridian stereo system.

Passenger and Cargo Space

The 2016 Land Rover Range Rover comes with standard seating for five passengers in two rows, while you also have the option of Executive Class Seating with second-row captain’s chairs to reduce total seating to four. Passengers have room to stretch out in this model, and plenty of room for storage, as well, thanks to 32.1 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space and a maximum cargo volume of 71.7 cubic feet.

On the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, two-row seating for five passengers is standard, but you can also get three-row seating for up to seven people. Cargo dimensions are slightly smaller, though, measuring 27.7 cubic feet behind the rear seat and 62.2 cubic feet in total.

Performance Specs

The 2016 Land Rover Range Rover and the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport both come with the same powertrain options, including a 3.0L V6, a turbo-diesel 3.0L V6, and a range-topping supercharged 5.0L V8 that makes up to a robust 500 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. These models are also offered with outstanding off-road performance capabilities thanks to a standard full-time four-wheel drive system and features like Terrain Response, Terrain Response 2, All-Terrain Progress Control, hill descent control, and a two-speed transfer case.

The primary difference between these models is size. The full-size SUV status of the Land Rover Range Rover allows it to absorb big ruts and handle the roughest of terrains with a bit more ease than its incredibly capable counterpart.
