2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport vs. 2014 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Land Rover Range Rover Sport offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volkswagen Touareg, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Land Rover Range Rover Sport and the Volkswagen Touareg.

Convenience
The Volkswagen Touareg requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Land Rover Range Rover Sport will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Touareg, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Land Rover Range Rover Sport and the Volkswagen Touareg have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Land Rover Range Rover Sport is much wider than the Volkswagen Touareg, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Touareg.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Handling
The Land Rover Range Rover Sport has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Touareg, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport will do just as well as the Volkswagen Touareg, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Touareg.

Utility
The Land Rover Range Rover Sport offers greater seating capacity than the Volkswagen Touareg, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Land Rover Range Rover Sport as you will in the Volkswagen Touareg.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Land Rover Range Rover Sport than that of the Volkswagen Touareg.
