2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport vs. Its Competition

2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE

The Cadillac Escalade is a larger alternative to the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

The Escalade offers more interior room than the Sport, and the 6.2-liter V-8 in the Cadillac helps the Escalade keep up with the Land Rover, even when equipped with the supercharged engine.

But not many buyers need that ability to traverse mud bogs on the way to the country club, and the 2009 Infiniti FX50 and BMW's X6 pose a dilemma for the Range Rover Sport because these all-wheel-drive competitors focus entirely on road performance, which is what so many buyers are seeking.

The choice of SUVs in this price range also includes the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5.

Both are athletic and aggressive but suffer from thick styling.
