Pros

Great for long trips, comfortable seats, has all the bells and whistles and in my opinion is the most luxurious and best looking SUV on the road besides the full size Rover

Cons

Gas mileage

35

Aweswome! — The gas mileage is rediculous It is a bigger car than I am used to leg room is less than desirable The breaks are too sensitive and in turn make's breaking kind of jerky But the car is high performance for an SUV And the handling is very responsive for it's size

Lovely looking car, solid build quality

Cons

Options cost too much but you will want at least some of them....funny gas smell when suspension is raised or lowered..

Range Rover Sport — i may be biased over here, i probably am, but everything about this car is perfect.... the problem i have with it is that options cost too much! i left out the GPS cos they were asking for 5 grand extra...im thinking "this is nuts" just cos im getting such a nice car does not mean i should splurge on costly accessories if there are cheaper, more reasonable alternatives, a good Top of the line GPS device will be about 400-500 dollars. So forget the extra 5 grand....buy a portable GPS device and spend the rest on a worthier cause.... in terms of performance, its pretty good, its not the sort of car you want to go on drag races with, but it has a kick to it, floor the accelerator and the car will prepare itself for a second, then lurch forwards as if it was kicked by some sort of giant footballer.... it has a very good sound...after a good drive, the car usually has a series of cracking noises for a few minutes, i guess its cooling itself down or something, the security is tops aswell, 2 days ago i left the car unlocked in the driveway and a few minutes later it Blared the horn loudly so as to notify me that i has not locked it, alarm is perfect and parking sensors do the job very well, you can generally get within 30 cm of obstacles safely a good suggestion, however, is to read the handbook....there are alot of things that you may need to know in order to drive safely...like how to use HDC(hill descent control) and Terrain Response....Also washing the car, it is imperative that you read that cos you could end up ruining the paint job of the car... I'm sure i've not covered everything about this car so feel free to add some input and any views you have on the car.. thanks

Pros

Love it

Cons

The 5 month wait for delivery!!

45

Range Rover Sport — Took delivery of a Tonga Green RRS on 23 May '08. Waited 5 months for the car, I ordered it on 28th Dec '07. It's amazing and well worth the wait, love the car, the colour, the performance, in fact everything, it's great. It is a company car however if I was ever looking to buy my own car I'd have no doubt in buying a RRS. My wife likes it so much she wants to purchase it when I replace it in 2011, changing her beloved Alfa 147GTA.

Solid Luxury Suv — This range rover sport drives like new. I love the handeling and the position behind the wheel. The beige interior looks great and the mini cooler in the center console is a welcome amenity in southern California since it hold about 3 cans and some energy bars. I love the handsfree bluetooth calling and the voice command function. The premium sound system is so great it sometimes makes you turn it down because you think you hear something, but it's an instrument in the song that you will never hear in any other car, even with the same sound system, Range rover designers placed the speakers in a way that it really sounds fantastic. The air ride system ads to the already very solid drive of the RR-S. There is no squeaking when driving over a speed bump.

Pros

A great off and on road vehicle.  

Cons

Land Rover charges for parts and service at a high rate.  But being a little handy saves you money

A Sophisticated Vehicle With The Ability To Drive You On An African Safari — I love the sophistication and class that it portrays. It rides above the rest with a firm control of the road, even in the outback of Australia if you please. The interior ride is smooth and has a nice amount of room. The kids can even watch some DVD's if they like with the entertainment system. A great family vehicle as well as a weekend warrior ride.

2008 Range Rover Sport Supercharged — I love the way this truck looks, feels and drives. Everything about it is top notch. I loved it so much, that I bought the 2009 HST pkg version of the same exact truck. Love Range Rover Sports Supercharged and am looking for a 2010-11 right now.

Poser's Dream.... — comfort,...and looks....they stand out above build quality and performance,the performance is only achievable when travelling in a straight line,attempt it on a corner or even a bend?...and the thing rolls like a tree in a gail....mpg is quite poor to the say the least...

Rr Sport — The car looks great, and gives a great feel good factor. I wish I had gone for the supercharged version as the V8 std is not electric. It handles brilliantly and the sound system is fantastic, also as it is Middle East Spec it is fully loaded. Sarah loves it!

It's My Beeest Caaaar — Range Rover Sport is a totally new breed of Land Rover. Every inch of its athletic, muscular body has been designed with aerodynamics and exhilarating performance in mind. With a raked windscreen and roofline and a smooth rounded body, Range Rover Sport looks like it´s moving even when it´s standing still. A rear spoiler, all-terrain sport tyres and optional 20 inch alloys further enhance its sports tourer credentials.
