If you crave a luxury SUV that can crawl down dirt roads by day and take you to the opera at night, it's hard to beat the Range Rover Sport. Attractive looks inside and out, brand heritage and a host
If you require an SUV that seats more than five, attains fuel economy better than 18 mpg or costs less than $60,000, you'll have to look elsewhere.
One may not believe a vehicle that's this capable in the rough could be smooth on the road, but the same suspension that soaks up ruts makes the Range Rover Sport very compliant on the highway and around town. With the naturally aspirated V8, the Range Rover Sport is quick for an SUV, clocking a trip to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds. With the supercharged variant, the Range Rover is double-quick, making the same trip in 5.9 seconds. Those times are even more impressive considering this vehicle weighs nearly three tons.

"I've had this vehicle now for 7 months. Great styling, very comfortable to drive. It has been back to the dealership 5 times with a list of defects. Replaced the water pump, check engine light comes on frequently, replaced gas cap and seal, now rear hatch has started opening intermittently, even while driving. Would not recommend this vehicle to a friend and I'll be selling well before it comes off warranty."

"I got this car when I was 16 for my birthday, and Ive had this car for 2 years. It is very reliable, and fixing it is actually not expensive at all. To be honest, though, it is kinda a gas gussler at times. If you can pay for gas and the price, its a great first car for someone that carries alot of people with them. I love the auxiliary port for my phone, too. The navigation is great, and the soundsystem is wonderful!!!"
