2010 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE SUV

2010 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Review

(4 Stars)  Not as sporty as rivals -- but more able

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
A Land Rover with 510 HP riding on 20" wheels. You bet. The Range Rover Sport, Land Rover's entry into the already busy Superformance SUV arena, is one tough customer. While many marquees like BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, and others offer bullet fast SUV's, the British builder's entry still retains a very strong sense of its origins. It remains a very competent off road vehicle, something many of its competitors forfeit for the sake of top asphalt performance. The well rounded performance of the Range Rover Sport cannot be matched by the models available from its competition.

On road performance isn't left out of Land Rovers equation, however. The 5.0 Liter Supercharged V-8 still propels this 5500lb machine to 60 miles per hour in just over 7 seconds. No mean feat to be certain. Especially for a vehicle than can wade through a 27" deep stream without a hiccup. The power is routed through a 6 speed transmission. The Range Rover sport rides on a sophisticated air suspension system to keep the ride comfortable and the body roll negligible even at high speeds.
