2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged

Land Rover did a great job styling the RR Sport: its beefy, sporty appearance goes perfectly with its clearly Land Rover look. I also agree with Amy about the expansive glass; couple the big windows with the fact that this vehicle sits up so high and you can look straight across the cabin at truckers while you're cruising down the highway. Evan may not dig the cozy cabin, but I actually love the intimate, sporty driving position, particularly compared with the commodious full-flavor Range Rover.

The air suspension rides nicely over the parking-garage speed bumps, but the handling is what's most impressive about the Range Rover Sport. Despite its school-bus steering wheel, the Sport handles much better than any 5700-pound brick has any right to. In early 2007, I bombed around in a similar vehicle on the excellent roads of Texas Hill Country for a feature story, and this Landie was quite impressive.
