If the regular Range Rover Sport was not powerful enough for you, then JLR has got your back. Welcome to the Range Rover Sport SVR, where the power is seemingly unlimited and it sits at the top of the hierarchy. Impressive horsepower figures aside, the Sport SVR is also very luxurious, and it can also double up as a competent off-roader. With the style and design enough to impress anybody, the only caveat is the price tag; which steps into the six-figure range.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The Sport SVR starts at a staggering $116,850 and competes against the likes of Mercedes-AMG GLS 63, BMW X7 M50i, and Audi RSQ8. Confidence over the pedal and no-bargain engineering is all set to embark on a new tradition in this segment with an all-new SVR Carbon Edition in addition to the base one. It has been a huge buzz for many reasons among many communities and it is hoped to fulfill all those expectations.

2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Features

The 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR comes in two trims – SVR and SVR Carbon Edition. The SVR is priced at a whopping $116,850; while the SVR Carbon Edition will cost you an even more ridiculous $131,550. Of course, they both feature the same powertrain and both come as 4WD only but it is that carbon fiber jam-packed delusional accents that make up for the name and variation of the elder sibling. Moreover, the views of the 21” 5 split-spoke forded Style 5091 wheels in the SVR and 22” 5 split-spoke Style 5083 forged wheels with gloss black finish in the SVR Carbon Edition are scintillatingly attractive.

When it comes to options and packages, the Drive Pro Pack for $1,970 includes adaptive cruise control with stop and go, high-speed emergency braking, and blind-spot assist. The Driver Assist pack costs more at $3,185 and it includes all of the features mentioned for the Drive Pro Pack, plus park assist, parallel/perpendicular park, and park exit. You can also take a page out of the Carbon Edition’s book and add the SVR Carbon Fiber Exterior Pack with Exposed Hood for $5,200 that entails gloss carbon fiber fender, gloss carbon fiber main grille surround, etc. On the whole, it is quite visible that the Land Rover has come up with something that has both standard and optional virtues equally desirable.

Which trim should you buy?

We would recommend going for the regular SVR unless you are an avid fan and admirer of Carbon Fiber and then further add the Drive Assist pack, as that would make driving on the highways and long trips a lot easier. It already comes packed with the most essential features and it has all the opulence that you can ask for. So, it does not make any sense to spend extra on the higher trim. 

2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Engine and Performance

The 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR has a beast sitting inside it. The 5.0L supercharged V8 is capable of producing 575 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and only comes with 4WD. It is as powerful as it sounds and can blast forward without any regard for the surroundings.

The engine has a guttural sound and the transmission is extremely smooth, making quick shifts and making fast maneuvers a breeze. The engine is capable of thrusting this heavy SUV forward within a mere 3.5 seconds from a standstill to 60 mph. Feel the jolt backward as you cross the quarter-mile in 12.7 seconds. The top speed is limited at 176 MPH; which is as fast as you might ever need to go in a luxury SUV. If you wish to tow something, you can do it as long as it is under 7,716 lbs. Overall, it is evident that the stats of the Range Rover SVR are extremely interesting.

The GLS63 comes with the most power and torque of 603hp and 627lb.-ft, out of the already powerful roster. The X7 has the least power. However, when it comes to performance, the RS Q8 is easily the fastest, and it is incredibly and insanely fast. The Mercedes-AMG comes in second, with the Sport SVR coming at a close third. The RS Q8 also offers the highest top speed of 189 MPH. The reason for such an impressive performance is the weight distribution and power-weight ratio for the same that are in sync with one another. 

How does the 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR handle?

Just slapping on a powerful engine won’t make the vehicle desirable; you have to make it feel like you are handling a beast. The Sport handles excellently. There is a ton of power right at your disposal. Just hit the throttle and be blown away. The steering has a good weight to it and it is neither too light nor too heavy. The steering is also pretty precise and sharp. The AWD keeps the SUV planted to the ground. 

The body roll is present, but it is kept to a bare minimum and there is no considerable lean into corners. There are a total of six driving modes for the Sport SVR. However, the most exciting ones are the snow, mud, sand, and rock crawling mode that allows you to drive the SUV in those certain scenarios. Yes, the British luxury SUV can also be taken to unexplored territories; and it is a very potent off-roader. So, one can drive off into the unknown while wallowing in ultimate luxury.

2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR Braking Performance

The SVR comes with disc brakes and it features 15” rotors at the front; and 14.4” rotors at the rear. Braking is pretty well done in this vehicle, as it makes the vehicle come to a halt within a pretty reasonable distance. The SVR is not light and it weighs around 5,093 lbs; but with such big brakes, it is not a problem; as the SUV is limited to 118 feet. Along with them, the Brake Assist, Hill Descent Control, ABS, and Electric Parking Brake also introduce themselves in this section.

The Sport is the lightest SUV in this list; while the BMW is the heaviest, by quite a margin. Though the data for any of them except for the Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR is not available, the analysis holds at the mercy of conjecturing only. But then one should not forget that they belong to the high-prime models of the brand, so he/she can be at peace expecting superior braking with no biting in each one of them.

2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Fuel Economy

The Sport SVR does not have the most efficient engine, but that is something obvious since it is a very power-hungry V8. The EPA estimates are about 15 MPG for the city, 20 MPG for the highway, and a mere 16 MPG for combined driving respectively. However, if someone can afford to own a Sport SVR, they won’t really have to worry about gas prices anyway.

The fuel tank capacity is around 27.6 gallons, which means that the total range you get is around 414/552/441 miles for city/highway/combined driving respectively. The large fuel tank does cover-up and offers a good overall range, despite the horrendous fuel economy.

When it comes to fuel economy, all of these SUVs are fitted with power-oriented engines; and hence, they don’t offer the best fuel economy. While the economy is comparable, the actual difference lies in the sizes of the gas tanks. The Sport comes with the largest gas tank and hence, offers the best range, leaving the others in the dust by quite a margin. It is then followed by the BMW X7 M50i while the Audi RS Q8 hits the rock bottom averaging 15 MPG and manages to record 337 miles of combined range only.

2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Interior

Of course, the interior of a Range Rover is a nice place to be in. Just like any other Range Rover, the Sport SVR is filled to the brim with luxurious materials, interior trimmings, and opulent design. The seats have the most gorgeous Windsor leather upholstery and offer beautiful stitching. Along with the full Morzine cloth headliner, you also get a leather gear shifter, leather door trim insert, and carbon-fiber interior accents. There is also tri-zone climate control and a panoramic sunroof to illuminate the cabin. The SUV comes with SVR performance seats. They are 16-way power-adjustable and heated. There’s 4-way electric lumbar support and seat memory functionality available as well. In the end, the heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel comes mechanically joined with a power tilt/telescoping steering column.

The 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR offers 27.5 cubic feet of storage. While that is a decent figure, it is not something too special. If you want more space, you can always fold the rear seats and that exposes a total cargo space of 62.2 cubic feet. The in-cabin storage solutions are plenty as well. Mostly, the front and rear rows of all the SUVs are also pretty decently spaced and offer lots of room for adults. However, when it comes to the third row, things start to get messier. The GLS and X7’s third row are way too cramped whereas the Land Rover and Audi go on to utilize that sort of volume for increasing the capacity. The 2021 RSQ8 leads in terms of trunk volume granting a total cargo capacity of 30.5 cubic feet.

Some interior features include:

  • 16-way power-adjustable SVR Performance seats
  • Windsor leather upholstery
  • Heated leather-wrapped carbon fiber steering wheel
  • Tri-zone climate control
  • Full Morzine cloth headliner
  • Leather gear shifter material
  • Carbon Fiber interior accents

Standard features include integrated turn-by-turn navigation, real-time traffic display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, HD radio, Bluetooth, InControl Remote and Protect, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Exterior

The Sport SVR has a classic Range Rover approach that should be able to strum the heartstrings of anybody. The SVR Carbon Edition takes things even further with a bunch of carbon fiber to the exterior. The front fascia features the classic Range Rover LED headlights which curl into the sides, and the DRLs also look pretty cool. The grille is sandwiched between the two headlights and it has been blacked out but is not too wide and long. The bumper features mesh to let the air in. The side sills are stylish and there are muscular lines flowing from the front to the back. The rear features the “Range Rover” lettering in bold and the LED taillights finish the muscular appeal; along with the dual exhausts at the bottom.

The regular SVR rides on 21” wheels, while the Carbon Edition rides on 22” gloss black finish wheels. The Carbon Edition also features carbon fiber power heated side mirrors, a wing spoiler, carbon fiber grille, front bumper, etc. Overall, the 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR has a very imposing appearance. As far as dimensions are concerned, the Merc and the M50i are longer than the other two since they offer three rows as standard. Apart from the dimensions, all of these luxury SUVs have their distinct style with their beauty being a matter of subjectivity.

Some key exterior features include:

  • 21”/22” gloss black finish wheels
  • Wing spoiler
  • Power heated side mirrors
  • LED brake lights
  • LED DRLs
  • Dual stainless-steel exhaust w/ chrome tailpipe finisher

2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Safety

Of course, the Sport SVR has not been tested by NHTSA or IIHS. It is far too expensive and too exclusive of a vehicle to be readily made available for crash testing. However, it is still a pretty safe vehicle as it comes with a long list of standard modern driver assistance features along with high-profile optional packages such as High-speed emergency braking, Blind-spot monitoring, Terrain response electronic stability control, and roll stability control. The premium status is in itself an expository of its impact resilient chassis along with 360 parking aid front and rear parking sensors all around it.

 Some of the standout optional and standard features include:

  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Lane departure warning
  • Front collision mitigation 
  • An aerial view camera system
  • Emergency braking and rear traffic monitor
  • Parallel/perpendicular park and park exit (optional)

2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Competition

2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR vs 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLS63

The GLS63 sits at the top of the Merc SUV hierarchy. Sporty, athletic, and laden with a lot of tech and luxury, it is nearly a perfect German automobile. If you desire an SUV for both on the road and off the road excellence, then the Sport is the one to get. If you are more concerned about practicality and modern tech features, then you can go with the Mercedes-AMG GLS63.

2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR vs 2021 BMW X7 M50i

The X7 is another piece of great German engineering. The X7 M50i is a powerful machine that is also quite luxurious and practical. BMW also offers a ton of modern features and driver assistance features, but the Sport is still a notch above. However, the Bimmer is cheaper, but if you can afford the overhead, go with the Sport.

2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR vs 2021 Audi RSQ8

If you want a luxurious SUV and are hungry for performance, go with the Audi RSQ8. It has incredible power and acceleration, and it also handles like a charm. Perhaps it is not as suited as the Range Rover when it comes to off-roading, but it is laden with luxury while being fast. It offers tough competition to the SVR while being priced in the same bracket.

2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR SUV Final Verdict

Considering the fact that you have the cash to spend, a Sport SVR would indeed be a very wise way to bid farewell to all that money. An off-roader that is also a menace in on-road driving, the SVR is fast, powerful, and laden with opulence and luxury. The abundance of safety and tech features make it an incredible option.
