2010 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
2010 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
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.

When I emerged from my apartment this morning, a few neighbors could be seen grimly scraping their windows and preparing for another slushy, icy commute. Poor peasants. I simply climbed into my Range Rover Sport, flipped on the front-windscreen heater (not to be confused with a lowly defroster), provided a squirt of heated washer fluid, and turned the Terrain Response dial to snow-and-gravel mode. Within minutes, I was bombing toward downtown Ann Arbor at a 50-mph clip, my forward view obstructed only by the faint wires of that very handy heated windshield. This, my friends, is the Michigan-in-February equivalent of cruising the Pacific Coast Highway in a BMW M3 convertible.

If I were in the market for a Land Rover, I think I'd pick the Range Rover Sport. I'd be willing to bet that most people can't tell the difference between the RR Sport, which starts at $60,495, and the much more expensive Range Rover, which has a base sticker of $79,275. Of course, our heavily optioned Supercharged edition is more dear than a base Range Rover-but you'll pay $95,195 for a supercharged Range Rover.

The Range Rover Sport almost pulled one over on me. In my first 20 miles behind the wheel, I fell for the acceleration, lush interior, and Range Rover cachet. However, the more I drove the Range Rover Sport, the less I thought that I would ever want to own one. For the $82,345 asking price, the Range Rover Sport requires too many compromises. Chiefly, the navigation interface and radio controls disappoint by being too slow and finicky. Using the physical seek buttons to choose a new station is particularly painful as you must pause at each station rather than rapidly pressing to skip over channels. Rear legroom is too tight and the driver's seat won't slide back far enough for my 6-foot, 3-inch frame. Even assisted by massive struts, the rear hatch feels as if it weighs 80 pounds; when you try to close it, those struts strongly fight every inch of travel. Then there's the handling. The Range Rover Sport is rather well behaved when it comes to ride quality, but is too eager to give up traction and lean in corners.

Give me a Land Rover LR4 at the somewhat lower end or a full-boat Range Rover at the top end of this British automaker's range of off-road vehicles, please. Although I am always pleased to be behind the wheel of the Range Rover Sport, it's an extraordinarily expensive and compromised vehicle. And did you check out the three-ton curb weight?!? It's no wonder this handsome vehicle feels like a brick being pushed through the air: it's a 5891-lb brick.

The 2010 Range Rover Sport Autobiography Limited Edition was announced today at the 2009 Los Angeles auto show and upgrades the Range Rover Sport Supercharged for even more exclusivity.
I'm not ashamed to admit I thought the Range Rover Sport was, at best, pretty absurd when it showed up in 2005; at worst, it was blasphemous. It looked a lot like a real Range Rover but wasn't one; it was mechanically related to the all-conquering LR3 but sat too close to the ground and wore performance tires. It short, it was (or seemed to me at the time) a poseur — something no Land Rover should be. Then I drove it.

Judging by the new-model intros from European carmakers, you'd think the bubble economy was still going strong. At Mercedes-Benz, AMG has been developing a new supercar and a new E63; BMW's M division has laid its hands on the X5 and the X6; Porsche is rolling out the Panamera; and Alfa Romeo has priced its 8C roadster at a cool $300K. It's sort of a collective, "What, me worry?" spoken with a (mostly German) accent.
