2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

Sharing a platform with the LR3 rather than the Range Rover, the 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport offers a blend of high-end comfort with sporty handling and off-road capability. The smallest SUV in Land Rover's arsenal, the Sport features two different engine choices, full-time 4WD with high and low range gearing, a Dynamic Response Suspension System (for rollover protection), and a Terrain Response System, which adapts gearing, throttle response and ride height for five different road conditions.

Changes for the 2008 Range Rover Sport focus mainly on power assets. An 8-way power passenger seat joins the driver's, and power tilt and telescopic steering and power folding mirrors are also now standard. The SUV fits five in two rows. The rear row split-folds 65/35 and folds flat, offering up to 71 cubic feet of storage space in addition to the standard roof rack. Each trim comes with its own engine. The HSE features a 300-hp, 4.4-liter V8, while the Supercharged gets a 4.2-liter V8 that hits 390-hp. Both are paired with a 6-speed automatic with three modes -- automatic, sport, and manual. The HSE starts out with power features, 19-inch wheels, a navigation system, and sunroof, while the Supercharged adds 20-inch wheels, heated seats, satellite radio and DVD player, and the Dynamic Response System. ABS brakes, traction and stability control, parking sensors, and six airbags (including side curtain for both rows) augment the solid and safe reputation of the Land Rover.

Customers and critics appreciate the easy handling and steering of the 2008 Range Rover Sport, admitting that it is fun to drive, while also retaining practicality for family use. Its offroad capability ranks high as does the DRS system. Low fuel economy (12/17 mpg) and somewhat limp acceleration are blamed on the heavy weight of the SUV. Other complaints focus on a somewhat harsh ride, difficult in operating the power rear hatch, and the need for premium fuel in both engines.
