2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport vs. Its Competition

2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport 4WD 4-door HSE Angular Front Exterior View

Cadillac's Escalade offers more space inside the cabin than the 2011 Range Rover Sport, and though it doesn't provide the extreme power of the Supercharged model, its 6.2-liter V-8 helps it keep up with the HSE.

If real off-road performance isn't needed, the BMW X6 and Infiniti FX50 boast excellent on-road performance and luxurious trappings.

As competitors on price, the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5 come with competitive features, but aren't as sharply styled as the 2010 Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Quick Specs
The 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport offers impressive performance and features, whether on-road or off.
The 2011 BMW X5 offers impressive handling and features, but lacks the styling and interior that makes competitors pop, while the X5 M offers nearly sports car levels of performance with all the utility of a standard X5.
The novelty of the four-door coupe/SUV is wearing off, but the X6's combination of utility and composed driving style still pleases.
The 2011 Cadillac Escalade delivers solid, luxurious, and spacious accommodations with an advanced feature set. If you can live with the thirst of non-Hybrid models, it's unbeatable.
The new 2011 Porsche Cayenne is one of the few vehicles you can take off-road and out to the track on the same day; it's leaner and more athletic than before, without giving up the off-road ability.
