Expert Quotes:

The Sport is a curious crossbreed, blending the looks of its larger Range Rover sibling with the suspension and underpinnings of the Land Rover LR4.
Motor Trend

Although the Range Rover Sport doesn't radiate the same Old World luxury charm as the more traveled top-line Range Rover, it still feels rich and contemporary.
Edmunds

the Sport's roofline tapers down, and the rear window has a shallower angle, giving it a sportier look.
Cars.com

The exterior styling is quite similar to that of the previous Sport, which is a good thing because it closely mimics the handsomely traditional Range Rover.
Car and Driver

The LED headlights are sure to impress valets and two-bar grille looks a bit tidier than the outgoing design.
Automobile Magazine

Sleek and stylish with a chassis built more for on-road performance than off-road capability, the 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport delivers the goods in the world of those that like to see and be seen.

With its bold, upright styling in the front sped up with a more angular, sloping rear, the Range Rover Sport takes the best of its brand heritage, and adds an element of, well, sport. The exterior look is one part classic Range Rover, one part modern SUV, with a dash of angular velocity, even when at rest.

Inside, it's more of the same, with classic cues and rectilinear surfaces paired with recently improved materials, high-tech displays, and more surface-tuning control gadgetry than any previous Sport. Criticism of previous models for cheap trim pieces is gone with last year's interior revisions improving the look and feel throughout the cabin.

Among the changes is a simpler, cleaner dash. Complaints about previous models' hard-to-read gauges are likewise gone, thanks to the 5-inch TFT display that replaces previous analog gauges.

Two trim levels, HSE and Supercharged, vary primarily on performance, but include a few unique styling differences for the keen observer to spot.

Conclusion

Well styled outside and much improved inside, the 2011 Range Rover Sport is the best yet.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
