2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged

The Range Rover Sport can't be mistaken for anything but a Land Rover. Sure, its supercharged engine puts out 390 hp, beating both the BMW X5 4.8i and the Porsche Cayenne S, but it hasn't sacrificed its Land Rover heritage while chasing performance numbers. I like that the large side windows haven't given way to a high beltline, and I even like the quirky controls that immediately let you know you're in a Land Rover. Reportedly, like all Land Rovers, it's also quite good off-road, although there aren't any off-road courses along my 12-mile commute that would allow me to confirm that claim. Like professional golfer John Daly, the Range Rover Sport is too heavy, too expensive, and too thirsty, but it's still a lot of fun to hang out with.
