If Jeep's Wrangler is the raw and unadulterated off-roading maniac, then the Range Rover SVR is its cousin with a white-collar job. There is not even a single arena where this SUV does not excel. With opulent cabin and over the top performance this Range Rover is next to the legendary Supermarine Spitfire in terms of engineering.

The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover SVR is equipped with a 5.0L supercharged engine which is priced at $113,900. This drive-train is brutally quick and comfortable at the same time.

Expert Review


Bringing along the same luxury as the standard Range Rover Sport, the SVR badge also integrates hardcore performance into the same as well. With over 575 horses stuffed between the front fenders, it is one of a kind SUV in its class.

The Range Rover SVR has occupied a prominent position amongst the class of midsize luxury SUVs. In this position, it gives a tough competition to other contenders of the class such as the Maserati Levante, Audi Q8, Porsche Cayenne, Jaguar F-Pace S, BMW X5, etc.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Features

The 2019 Range Rover SVR features 4 trims namely the Velar, SVR S, SVR R-Dynamic SE and R-Dynamic HSE. They are available with two different engines i.e., the 2.0 Liter turbo charged inline 4 engine and the 3.0 Liter Supercharged V6 engine. But this year the R-Dynamic does not offer the inline 4 engine.

The base trim i.e., the SVR comes equipped with synthetic leather and suede upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a panoramic sunroof, and proximity key entry. On the other hand the SVR S gets upgrades such as Perforated grained leather seats, an 11-speaker Meridian sound system, a navigation system, etc. In addition to these the R-Dynamic SE and HSE trims gets rear cross traffic alert, a 360-degree camera system, and perforated grained leather and suede seats.

We Recommand

SVR is available in only one trim and does not leave an option for buyers. This trim is loaded with each and every feature needed in this variant and is as luxurious as the top trim available.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Engine and Performance

Low-end thrust from the diesel engine is strong and makes the SVR feel quicker than its 9.6-second trot to 60 mph suggests.-Edmunds

The base trim of the 2019 Range Rover SVR comes a 5.0 Liter supercharged V6 engine. This engine is capable of providing a horsepower of 575 hp and a torque of 516 lb.ft. Only the SVR is equipped with this unique engine which provides it with a stand-alone identity.

Porsche Cayenne offers a much smaller yet capable engine which will keep you at the edge of your seat. The fun to drive BMW X5 is another competitor but will not be able to satisfy you with its performance.

The base inline 4 engine of the SVR is quite powerful as it generates power on par with the other luxury SUVs of the class such as the Maserati Levante, Jaguar F-pace S, Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q8, and BMW X5.

Acceleration

The supercharged V6 engine of the 2019 Range Rover SVR is produces enough power to make this SUV to speed up with ease. It is capable of accelerating to a speed of 60MPH in about 4.6 seconds.

The 2019 SVR is quick enough to pace up with the Levante and the Cayenne and is quicker than the Jaguar F-Pace. However it still feels a bit sluggish when compared to the Maserati Levante and BMW X5.

Ride and Handling

The 2019 Range Rover SVR might feel very aggressive at times but is capable of handling steep curves with finesse and confidence. Due to its standard adjustable suspension system, it is always quite composed and maintains it's on road behavior.

Moreover in addition to four-wheel drive, the SVR comes has been installed with low traction launch, hill launch assist, and hill descent control to keep the SUV fixed to the track on steep roads. In addition to that the Terrain response system is capable of adjusting performance for grippy ride due to the availability of various drive modes such as Eco, Comfort, Grass-Gravel-Snow, Mud-Ruts, Sand, and Dynamic.

Braking

One aspect of performance the previous SVR lacked was braking. Looks like the 2019 Range Rover SVR has also inherited this drawback. It comes equipped with the same brakes i.e., 12.8 inch disc brakes on the front and back as its predecessor and weights almost same.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Competition

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SE vs Jaguar F-Pace

It is the third year for the F-Pace in the market and it has already gained a dominant place when compared to the Range Rover Sport. Moreover it is quite a power packed performer while consuming fuel on par with the Range Rover Sport. Also its lower price makes it a feasible option. Still in terms of Spacious and luxurious interiors and off roading spirits, the Range Rover has an upper hand

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SE vs Audi Q8

The Audi Q8 debuts this year into the market of midsized SUV crossovers. Paying up a $1,000 more for its power packed performance might seem a feasible option. Although it has taken a fair position in the line, it still cannot match with the luxury and off-roading spirits of this heavy Range Rover.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SE vs BMW X5

The BMW X5 has been on this Market for quite some time. Surely the BMW knows how to maintain their stand. Although the Range Rover came late into the Market, it stands quite a competition for the X5. Although its powerful than the all new X5, it is quite poor in performance. Moreover, it also consumes less fuel than the Range Rover Sport and also has a spacious and luxurious. Also its low price is one of the major factor that can make it a preference over the Range Rover Sport along with all the other factors

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Final Verdict

Mercedes, Porsche and now Maserati has tried every nook and recipes to beat the SVR in its own game but it seems like they have been dive-bombed by the Brits. John Wayne while off-roading and Sean Connery on roads.

There is nothing else you can buy if you have $113,900 in your pocket. Ignoring the price tag, SVR might be the sportiest and sweetest SUV in the market right now.
