If you want something like an R-squared, try the Nagelkerke R-bar-squared, based on the likelihood. You should then compare this with a Nagelkerke value for your OLS model".

Please do not post HTML, only plain text.

Please do read the documentation - ?summary.sarlm contains this reference:

Nagelkerke NJD (1991) A note on a general definition of the
      coefficient of determination. Biometrika 78: 691-692

Read that, and you'll see that it is simple to calculate, but it is not 
easy to see how to draw inferences from the comparison. The LR test on the 
spatial coefficient is much better studied and should be preferred.
