This version of the Range Rover Sport is actually based on the Land Rover LR4 rather than the high-end Range Rover.
A luxurious midsized SUV, the five-passenger interior is festooned with leather, wood trim, and luxury amenities, including active cruise control and rear-seat DVD entertainment screens.
A 4.4-liter V8 is standard, while a supercharged 4.2-liter V8 is optional.
While competent enough, the heavy Range Rover Sport lacks the sporty handling of some of its key competitors.
Off-road capability is acceptable, although the 19-inch tires don't lend themselves to that task.
The 2010 update brought new 5.0-liter V8 engines.
