Shorter, lower, sportier, and more affordable than its Range Rover sister, the Range Rover Sport trades some of the ride comfort of its sister ship for outstanding performance on pavement. Remarkably, it does so while holding on to the offroad capability expected of a Range Rover. An aluminum unibody makes this version lighter than its predecessor, which improves performance and fuel economy. Supercharging was introduced for the V8 engine and a supercharged V6 engine option was added. Though well equipped in its base configuration, blind spot monitoring and a surround-view camera system are highly recommended options. The 2016 update brought a diesel powerplant and handsfree operation for the tailgate.
