Specification Modification Review Image 2012 Land Rover Range Rover SportThe Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a premium SUV that represents a shift in focus for this SUV-oriented luxury brand. While traditional Land Rover models have combined unbeatable off-road performance with the amenities of a luxury sedan, the Range Rover Sport represents Land Rover's first entry into the burgeoning high-performance SUV arena. It is designed to offer sporty road manners and traditional Land Rover luxury without completely sacrificing the go-anywhere abilities of other Land Rover models.
Despite its name, the Range Rover Sport is actually a modified and shortened version of the old Land Rover LR3. As such, the Sport is the smallest and most nimble SUV in the company's lineup. Overall, it is an enjoyable and luxurious vehicle to drive as well as look at. Shoppers seriously interested in getting maximum on-road performance out of an SUV would probably be better served by a few of this Land Rover's competitors, however, as they are able to deliver better acceleration and handling.
Land Rover introduced the new 2010 Range Rover Sport as it comes with three all new engines, a 3.0 liter twin turbo diesel, 5.0 liter V8 petrol and a high performance supercharged petrol. The most significant changes on the 2010 Range Rover Sport are to its powertrains. The vehicle benefits from two powerful new engines: 510bhp LR-V8 5.0-liter supercharged and a 375bhp LR-V8 5.0 liter naturally aspirated engine. The 2010 Range Rover Sport also comes with new systems such as Adaptive Dynamics and the addition of the road-focused Dynamic program to the Terrain Response system and further improvements to the Terrain Response system ensure that off-road capability is kept at the expected class-leading level.
