The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.8
8.6

TCC’s Bottom Line

The most broadly talented luxury SUV of its kind, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport is plush, quick, rugged, and authentic--as well as pricey, thirsty, and not especially spacious. For families who want off-road or towing ability, but not a third row of seats, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz M Class is one of the most enjoyable, secure utility-vehicle picks.
