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.
