Range Rover Sport (2013-2022): dimensions and boot space

Key dimensions figures including width, length, height and boot size for the Range Rover Sport, including the plug-in hybrid model

The Range Rover Sport is a large SUV that’s available as a seven-seater. You can also get a plug-in hybrid model, although this version has five seats, though the range is mostly made up of large, 3.0-litre petrol and diesel engines (plus a large-engined V8 version for extra performance).

There’s only one body style, which is an SUV with a hatchback boot opening, no matter which engine you go for. It’s a rival for models such as the BMW X5, Volvo XC90 and Audi Q7 - all large, luxurious SUVs known for their comfort, high-end interiors and perhaps most of all, big price tags.

If you’re considering one of these cars you ought to be aware of their dimensions, as our small streets and parking spaces in the UK can make driving one of these a bit of a pain for those who often drive on narrow streets or busy urban environments. You’ll find all the information you need to see if the Range Rover Sport will fit into your garage or into a certain parking space below.

We’ve also included crucial information on boot space, weights and towing capacities below to help you decide if the Range Rover Sport is the right car for you. There’s plenty more information about the model in our full buying guide linked to below, and we’ve also covered the plug-in hybrid P400e model as well.

Read on to find out more about the Range Rover Sport’s dimensions including boot space, weight and towing capacity. The plug-in hybrid is a little different to the other models in a few areas, so we’ve separated its figures out in our tables below.

Range Rover Sport dimensions

The Range Rover Sport is the same size no matter whether you choose a normal engine or the plug-in hybrid. At 4,879mm long, 2,073mm wide and 1,803mm tall, it’s a very large vehicle. Luckily, parking sensors and a reversing camera are fitted on every version.

It’s about the same size as the BMW X5, which is around 5m long, 2m wide and 1.7m tall. It’s worth noting that if you are looking for a width figure for putting the car into a garage, it’s actually 2,220mm when the door mirrors are folded out, which is very wide indeed.

There’s loads of space inside the Range Rover Sport, and even tall adults will be comfortable sitting in the back seats. Most versions are available with seven seats, and the rearmost chairs are great for kids, although the plug-in hybrid model is a five-seater only.

Range Rover Sport boot space

The Range Rover Sport’s boot space figures are provided by the manufacturer in two forms: 'wet' and 'dry'. The wet figure is equivalent to if you filled the space up with water, while the dry weight is measured using blocks of a litre capacity.

We’ve used the latter here because it’s an industry standard and comparable to other models such as the BMW X5 (which has a 650-litre boot), but also because it’s a better figure for the way you will actually use the boot - for solid items.

Land Rover also notes that the Range Rover Sport P400e has a reduced capacity by about 80 litres because the plug-in hybrid battery pack takes up extra space.

Range Rover Sport towing capacity

The Range Rover Sport is an excellent tow car. Not only is it four-wheel-drive in all guises, it’s fitted with a variety of powerful engines that are able to tow the maximum allowed weight of 3,500kg behind them.

The only non-hybrid model not rated to tow the full 3,500kg is the V8 model. This version can tow 3,000kg, though, which is still a very useful figure and will be plenty for most people. The V8 petrol engine will be rather thirsty for fuel even when not towing, though, so it’s not an ideal choice anyway.

The Range Rover Sport P400e is able to tow up to 2,500kg, which is still good, but it’s the worst choice in the range for those planning to tow a trailer or caravan - we’d stick to the excellent diesels for that. Towing is likely to decimate the P400e's electric range, too, meaning that most of your driving would be relying on the small petrol engine, putting lots of strain on it and resulting in poor fuel economy.

Range Rover Sport3,000kg - 3,500kg

Range Rover Sport weight

Range Rover Sport rear view

The Range Rover Sport is, as you would expect, a very heavy car. Most large SUVs are extremely heavy, and that’s the case here, thanks to the weighty four-wheel-drive system, large engines and all that high-tech equipment on board. The kerbweights listed below include a 75kg driver, all the fluids and a tank of fuel.

The lightest Range Rover Sport is the diesel version - it doesn’t matter whether you choose the D250, D300 or D350 version, as they all weigh the same. The heaviest is the V8 petrol model, which has a large 5.0-litre engine.

The P400e plug-in hybrid weighs the most of any Range Rover Sport, at more than 2,500kg. That puts it among the heaviest passenger cars on the road.

WeightKerbweight
Range Rover Sport2,278kg - 2,377kg
Range Rover Sport P400e2,539kg
