Compare car insurance for your Land Rover Range Rover Sport
Land Rover launched the Range Rover Sport in 2005 as a high powered, sporty 4x4. It’s a fun to drive, powerful mid-size Land Rover, which the group dubs as its most dynamic Range Rover.
A versatile car, it can be used as a seven seater as well as just a four seater with extra rear space. The back row of seats neatly folds and unfolds as needed.
Starting at over £65,000, it’s far from cheap, though somewhat less expensive that its slightly bigger stablemate, the full-size Range Rover.
Range Rover Sport insurance groups fall in the range of 38 to 50, depending on the exact model. Range Rover Sports are therefore generally more expensive than the average car to insure.
The Association of British Insurers and Lloyd’s of London set your car’s insurance group from 1 to 50. In general, the higher the insurance group, the greater your insurance premium will be. You can use Uswitch to shop for offers on Range Rover Sport car insurance.
All Land Rover Range Rover Sport models have four-wheel drive and come with relatively high specification equipment. Additional equipment packs are also available, meaning you can tailor the Land Rover Range Rover Sport to your requirements.
There are diesel, petrol and plug-in hybrid versions of the car.
Typical of its class, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport has tended to prioritise power over fuel economy. This latter, however, has improved over recent years, especially with the launch of the hybrid model.
The current 3-litre diesel Range Rover Sport gives you up to 32 miles per gallon (mpg), while the 3-litre petrol version provides up to 27 mpg. Land Rover’s 2-litre plug-in hybrid petrol Range Rover Sport does up to 87 mpg.
The most expensive model in the Range Rover Sport category is the SVR 5.0L V8 Supercharged petrol model. Priced at over £100,000, it is a high-performance SUV 4x4 capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds.
There is not a cheap Range Rover Sport to insure, though the SVR model is the most expensive from an insurance standpoint.
petrol engines: from 2L
diesel engines: from 3L
plug-in hybrid petrol: 2L
