Expert Quotes:

The touch screen is small and awkwardly angled, making operation and navigation programming more difficult than it should be.
Consumer Guide

The Supercharged model also features a Dynamic Mode, tailoring the chassis and powertrain for more sporty and responsive on-road driving.
Edmunds

In one important way we like this navigation system's interface better than that in the Jaguar XFR; there are buttons below the LCD that give quick access to the map, along with the phone and the stereo systems.
CNet

The surround-view camera system is very helpful during off-road excursions, though Range Rover Sport owners would be wise to use it during parking maneuvers to keep those big wheels free of scuffs.
Automobile Magazine

Another change I could live without is the keyless entry transmitter, which is remarkably large.

As high-tech as it is fast and luxurious, the 2012 Range Rover Sport relies on a pair of screens--one 5-inch TFT mounted in the instrument panel, and a larger touchscreen in the center of the dash--for driver-vehicle communication. These interfaces provide a wealth of information, access to settings, and control over the vehicle's function and features.

For off-roading or performance driving, the Adaptive Dynamic System and Terrain Response System readouts are particularly useful, displaying real-time workings of the differentials and wheels.

The instrument panel shows even more information, and can be driver configured to display trip, speed, and other information. The Dynamic program is controlled by a center-console knob, allowing the driver to choose the drivetrain setting to suit the surface.

Aside from the difference in engines, the primary differences between the Range Rover Sport HSE and Supercharged are the options. Most of the Supercharged's standard gear is optional on the HSE. Upgrades for either model include a rear-seat entertainment system, a beverage cooler, and a wide array of interior individualization.

Adaptable air suspension, surround-view cameras, and a choice of alloy wheels are also available.

Conclusion

The 2012 Range Rover Sport's high sticker price includes a wide range of high-tech standard equipment, and there are many options to add to the package.

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.
