Introduction

The Range Rover Sport is Land Rover’s promise of an off-road SUV with dynamic underpinnings. Sound far-fetched? Well, in the case of the previous RRS it was. Land Rover ended up with egg on their face for a less than lithe SUV. But to be fair, the previous RRS couldn’t get any better due to the less sophisticated twin rail chassis it shared with the Discovery.

Conceived in tandem with its bigger brother, the Range Rover, this latest RRS is much more promising. For starters, it benefits greatly from the all-new aluminum chassis that has shed nearly half a ton (420kg to be exact) from the previous car. Combined with the addition of a new supercharged V6 under the bonnet, it makes for a very agile SUV.

These guys are fast, responding the very next day with offers and more importantly higher than what was offered by the dealer whom I am buying my car from.
