With year’s near total of Land Rover’s Range sales for the ruggedly premium brand are up double digits. November was one of their best sales months ever. now they hope to spread a of that success to their model, the Range Rover

So, let’s find out if they can the momentum going.

A big part of the Range Rover Sport’s is, without a doubt, that anywhere in luxury” tradition of the Rover brand. But just many other builders of SUVs, if they want to sales numbers, as Land surely does, their will have to become more refined.

And, that’s clearly was intended with the new Sport. alongside the also-new Range that launched just year, the Sport shares the all-aluminum architecture and 800-pound loss despite growing and more functional.

For differentiation, the front-end styling is more than Range Rover, but the slant-back image of previous still intact. It looks and rugged; though more a few of our staffers also pointed out a to the Ford Explorer. The blacked out and rear glass give it a visor treatment, with a spoiler topping the hatch.

V6 ride on 19-inch wheels, V8s on Both V6 and V8 come supercharged, an incredibly smooth 8-speed transmission and permanent 4-wheel-drive.

The brute of the two V’s is our tester’s eight. It cranks out 510-horsepower and 461 of torque, and sounds nastier any SUV we can remember.

But it’s the interior perhaps the biggest visual where things are simpler, more logical, all while roomier. Space was sorely in the back seat where the leg room is appreciated. Still more is needed for normal so those in the front don’t to move their seats

New this year is an optional third row. There are of interior choices for color and tones, and just about all the comforts you could ask for including a big and power rear hatch. works well, and the IP layout is a beautiful mix of needles and dials the digital age meeting Land tradition.

Despite the increasingly refined on the road it still feels a truck, which is just by us. It soaks up road imperfections better than before, a commanding view from the seat, and no matter the road it feels incredibly composed, and never harsh. It’s the best riding SUV out there, to still feel like a Rover with that go sensation, just a super one.

Even at higher the Sport feels flat and making you want to go faster you should through corners, but worry, electronic nannies your back. For a vehicle weighs over 47hundred it responds very light. The Electronic Air suspension’s Auto reacts promptly, and Dynamic firms things up to sport territory.

Land Rover claims their most agile UTE and we can’t help but agree.

An winter storm prevented us really pushing the Sport to its at our test track, but did provide us a to fully experience Terrain 2’s snow setting. the standard V6 is probably more up to the task of carpooling and mall it’s big V8 power that we and the Sport has a huge amount of it, it in a very luxury car-like

Acceleration is brisk, hitting 60 in as as 5.0-seconds. Of course you have to pay on the end with Government Fuel Ratings of 14-City, 19-Highway, and We managed 16.6 miles-per-gallon of in mixed driving.

That for a poor Energy Impact with 20.6-barrels of oil being per year and 9.4-tons of CO2 emitted.

If got a nit to pick, it’s the very stop/start system, though harshness might be expected you’re instantly igniting much engine. But, you don’t expect any roughness a vehicle with a base of $63,495. V8’s begin at

So you’ll need to bring the but you will be very satisfied; as no denying that the 2014 Rover Range Rover is vastly better than It’s a lot more refined losing any of its Land Rover-ness. A that many other have been unable to and a recipe that will the momentum going for Land
