TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Reliability And Durability: Cons
YearComment
2014 The second thing that has kept a lid on Land Rover sales has been a reputation for poor reliability. Unfortunately, TrueDelta has no data on the Range Rover Sport. What we do have on the LR3 and LR4 is mixed. With the LR4, owners haven't reported many problems during the first few years of ownership, but as I write this the picture for the 2011 and older isn't pretty. Maybe the latest ones will do better? Maybe, but it's a bet many potential buyers aren't willing to make given Land Rover's near-bottom rankings in reliability stats elsewhere. I have a smidge more faith in the X5's reliability. While the X5 has traditionally been among BMW's least reliable models, no owners have reported repairs for the 2013 in our survey. And recently redesigned BMWs have been more reliable than those they replaced. full 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport review
 

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Gas Mileage: Neutral
YearComment
2014 I'll end with a final surprise: fuel economy no longer ranks among the reasons not to buy a Range Rover Sport. Thanks to a lower curb weight, a more efficient engine, and two more gears in the transmission (for a total of eight), the Range Rover Sport's EPA ratings jump from last year's 13 mpg city and 18 mpg highway to 17 and 23, respectively. This jump looks less impressive when compared to the 2014 BMW X5 xDrive35i's 18/27. But still impressive. Perhaps more of an issue: BMW offers the X5 with a diesel engine in North America, and its good for 23/31. Land Rover doesn't offer its diesels over here. In my suburban driving, the Range Rover Sport's trip computer reported averages as high as 25. Even when I was making healthy use of the supercharger the average remained about 18. But the speed with which the gas gauge's needle traveled made me wonder whether the trip computer was accurate. My guess: it was about ten percent high. full 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport review
