Range Rover Sport SVR versus Mercedes-AMG GLE63

Range Rover stepped into mid-size luxury SUV performance battle with the introduction of RR Sport SVR.

Power and Performance

The Range Rover is powered by a supercharged 5-liter V8 which produces 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque. That's exactly as much power as you get from standard GLE 63 AMG. But Benz's 5.5-liter V8 twin-turbo delivers 14 lb-ft more torque. Although the difference in power isn't great, and considering the fact that the RR Sport SVR has a 8-speed transmission compared to GLE 63's 7-speeds, the Range Rover is .2 seconds slower to reach 60 mph. And we didn't even mention that the Benz weights more.

Jumping to the more sporty GLE 63 S, we get an even greater power gap, especially in the torque area.

Dimensions

GLE 63 is wider than its British competitor, but has shorter wheelbase and overall length. None of the SUVs offer third row seats, leaving the option for larger siblings. It seems Mercedes offers slightly less room in both first and second rows.

Pricing

Range Rover Sport SVR is priced in the US from $111,350, which is $11,400 more than the standard GLE 63, and $4,250 more than GLE 63 S.
