The 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a midsize luxury SUV offered in six trim levels: SE, HSE, Supercharged, Supercharged Dynamic, Autobiography and SVR. Two-row seating is standard, with a two-passenger, power-folding third row optional on all trims except the SVR.
Standard features on the SE trim include 19-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights, LED running lights and taillights, power-folding heated mirrors, a self-leveling air suspension with auto access height, front and rear parking sensors, a hands-free power liftgate, rear privacy glass and keyless ignition and entry. Inside you’ll find ambient interior lighting, leather upholstery, 14-way power front seats, driver memory settings, a power-adjustable steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, dual-zone climate control, 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks and a cargo cover. Also standard are an 8-inch touchscreen, a navigation system, voice controls, a rearview camera, Bluetooth (phone and streaming audio), the InControl Apps suite and an eight-speaker sound system with satellite and HD radio and a USB port.
The HSE adds 20-inch wheels, foglights, a panoramic sunroof, perforated leather upholstery, heated front seats and upgraded interior trim.
The Supercharged trim level adds a V8 engine, a more sophisticated four-wheel-drive system (with low-range gearing and handling-enhancing torque vectoring), adaptive terrain-sensing drive settings (“Terrain Response 2 Auto”), adaptive suspension dampers, roll stabilization and steering-wheel paddle shifters.
The Supercharged Dynamic model goes further with 21-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, red-painted brake calipers, a flat-screen virtual instrument cluster, increased top speed (155 mph) and unique interior trim.

The high-performance SVR provides most of the Autobiography’s features, adding or substituting SVR-specific 21-inch wheels and bumpers, sport-tuned suspension and steering, sportier transmission programming, special interior and exterior styling and trim details, front sport seats and rear sport seats.
Many of the higher trims’ standard features are available on lower trims. Other options include 22-inch wheels, cooled front and rear seats, a 23-speaker Meridian audio system, quad-zone climate control, adaptive cruise control with automatic emergency braking, a towing package (with a full-size spare tire in two-row models) and a rear-seat entertainment system. A Driver Assistance package adds a head-up display, a lane-departure warning system, a self-parking system (with both parallel and perpendicular capability, plus automatic space exit) and 360-degree parking sensors.
