It's A Range Rover Jim, But Not As We Know It... —

It may look like a Range Rover, it may even say Range Rover on the front and back but actually it's not. With the original model being too luxurious, large and expensive to be a threat to the hugely successful BMW X5 and too slow to compete against the Porsche Cayenne the boys in Solihull have gone back to the drawing board and come up with possibly the most appealing car of a generation. With fashionistas and footballers all craving the 4x4 experience Land Rover have taken a Discovery 3 chassis and paired it with a Jaguar 4.2 V8, thrown in body styling that echos the behemoth that is their flagship model and created the Sport. 385bhp, 0-60 in 7 seconds and a top speed of 140mph, the only way to feel this much power at this kind of ride height, is to experience take off in a jumbo. It is however, not a Range Rover. The cabin is not nearly as spacious and much less luxurious. Plastic is everywhere and the feeling of traveling "first class" is somewhat lost. It is however a fantastic driving experience, the road is gripped tighter than a thong on a fat lass and the cabin does fell sporty with it. If you're after a Porsche Cayenne beater then this is a great choice. Residuals are much better and it's arguably much better looking. I would however recommend the original. For only £7000 more the Range Rover Vogue Supercharged has the same engine as the Sport but tuned to an even more mental 400bhp for an even sweeter V8 rumble. It's quicker to 60 although being bigger, heavier and more luxurious will only manage 130mph. Oh well, I'm sure you'll live.

Pros: Handling, Performance, Badge, Good Residuals

Cons: Fuel Economy, Price, Eats Tyres

It wasnt as good a ride as the Land Cruiser, and the room provided the driver, I thought, was extremely small, especially for a big dollar vehicle.

Power Ranked 2005 Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD better.
"It had PLENTY of power, but I couldnt say for certain that it had more power than the Range Rover. But hey, Im extremely happy and dont care which might have the MOST power."
Front Seats Ranked 2005 Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD better.
"A lot roomier and very comfortable, vs. cramped."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2005 Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD better.
"The Land Cruiser is longer AND wider, and definitely has the larger capacity."
Value Ranked 2005 Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD better.
"A Cadillac like ride with a really nice interior. Very soft and durable leather throughout. Everything is as smooth as silk, even the engine, which has 128,000+ miles on it. I couldnt believe that it had a nice-sized screen with backup camera. Ive owned it less than a month, and Ive already had 3 different people ask what Id take for it. And the mileage numbers listed are not what I got. Ive checked my road mileage for 160 miles total, two separate trips; and I got EXACTLY 20 mpg. And thats no exaggeration at all! "
