With a focus on strength, power, and agility, this second generation Sport reflects Land Rover's proud history, while also providing an outlook for the brand's future. A midsize SUV, the 2022 Range Rover Sport is smaller, cheaper, and as the name implies, sportier than its flagship sibling. With the exception of the Range Rover SVR, the 2022 Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic is the most luxurious Range Rover Sport. It competes with the finest executive SUVs such as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, Maserati Levante GTS, and BMW X7 M50i.

Featuring a plethora of safety and convenience stuff, it is the second most comprehensive trim in the 2022 Range Rover Sport lineup. Features that come standard with the vehicle include heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel and rear seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof, and many more. As such, the Autobiography Dynamic trim comes loaded with plenty of features, so there's not much need for customization. However, we recommend you add the available safety and driver-assist features as well as the Terrain Response System to improve its off-road performance.

We recommend 

A V8 engine and cutting-edge technology are what make the Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic an ideal vehicle for those seeking performance, luxury, and affordability. Those who feel that the Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic isn't plush and powerful enough, you can opt for the Range Rover Sport SVR.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic SUV Engine and Performance

9.0/10

The 2022 Range Rover Sport will no longer feature the diesel engine or PHEV powertrain. Despite this, there are still four highly capable engines available in the Range Rover Sport lineup: two turbocharged Inline-6s and two supercharged V8s. Consequently, the Range Rover Sport Autobiography only comes with a supercharged V8 engine that ensures 518 horsepower and 416 pounds of torque. The massive power is routed to all four wheels by an 8-speed automatic transmission. Also included are a two-speed transfer case, limited-slip differential, and additional off-road driving modes.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic SUV Hits 0-60 in 5.1s

When it comes to off-roading, the Range Rover Sport is an exceptionally capable vehicle. In its highest setting, the SUV's 10.9-inch ground clearance helps it protect its underside from larger obstacles due to its height-adjustable air suspension. The 2022 Range Rover Sport Autobiography with trailer sway control and trailer backup assist can tow up to 7,716 pounds. The SUV costs $98,500, making it the cheapest option in the competition.

Comparatively, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo is both the most powerful and the most expensive offering within this comparison. Having said that, it's not surprising that the fastest car in the group is the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. It is followed by the BMW X7 M50i. The Autobiography offers the lowest power output and the slowest acceleration of all SUVs aforementioned.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic SUV Fuel Economy

The 2022 Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic with a 5.0L Supercharged V8 engine under the hood isn't a gas guzzler in the traditional sense. The vehicle achieves better fuel economy than its competitors. Depending on the driving conditions, it returns 17 mpg in cities, 22 mpg on highways, and 19 mpg in combined conditions. The SUV comes with a fuel tank capacity of 27.5 gallons, resulting in a range of 538 miles combined.

The Autobiography trim, by contrast, is the most fuel-efficient vehicle, although it carries a beefy engine. Although both the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and BMW X7 deliver similar fuel economy figures, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo comes with a larger fuel tank which provides a greater range. However, the Range Rover Sport Autobiography has the largest fuel tank of 27.5 gallons. The Maserati Levante GTS stands at the very back with a fuel economy of 15 mpg combined.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Autobiography Dynamic SUV Interior

8.5/10

One of the defining features of the Range Rover Sport is its interior. A high level of craftsmanship and quality materials make it sound luxurious like the Range Rover. In addition to luxurious comfort and supreme driving sensations, the car's interior is designed for on-the-go driving ergonomics. With an elevated vantage point, occupants have an unprecedented view of the busy street. Thanks to its acoustic laminated windshield, the Sport is very quiet inside, where the engine, tires, and wind are rarely heard.

The front seats offer ample space with a 22-way power adjustment that can accommodate all your body's tantrums. It's the same in the rear seats, and space is more than adequate if three people have to sit there. Whether you choose to go for the third row is entirely up to you, but we recommend not doing it as it is cramped up. Moreover, the Range Rover Sport offers many options in addition to its standard equipment. You can add heated rear seats, massaging rear seats, four-zone climate control, soft-closing doors, remote unlocking, as well as heated and cooled front and rear seats.

The BMW X7 M50i has its advantages in the seating department, although the Range Rover Sport Autobiography is larger. Because of its long body, the X7 offers the most legroom and headroom.
