The 2013 Range Rover Sport can be dubbed the most unique vehicle in the entire Land Rover catalog simply because its capabilities and its price have created a combination of values that is simply unmatched by any other vehicle in its segment. The Sport is sandwiched between the larger Range Rover and the Evoque in terms of size. Yet, the vehicle manages to stand out in Range Rover’s current lineup as its most attractive vehicle.
The base model in the Range Rover Sport range is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 which displaces 375 lb-ft of torque and outputs 375 horsepower. The engine propels the Range Rover Sport from 0-60 in just 7.2 seconds which is quite decent for a vehicle of this size. The highest-spec engine in the range displaces 461 pound feet of torque and outputs 510 horsepower. This variant accelerates from from 0-60 in just 5.9 seconds. a six-speed automatic transmission and intelligent AWD system is standard on both models. The company has not yet provided the exact fuel economy numbers for the model though it is safe to say that this vehicle is not meant for people looking for a frugal commuter.
The cabin of the Range Rover Sport is designed to give off an intimate feel to the occupants. The high-quality interior landscape of the model comes laced with modern switchgear, a swanky LCD infotainment touchscreen, club-chair leathers and wood veneers which provide the driver and passenger with a distinctly British feel. With the rear seat in place, the high floor doesn’t leave room for much cargo to be loaded into the vehicle which means that the SUV, even with its awesome all-terrain capabilities, won’t be the kind of model that would be preferred by avid campers and off-road vacationers (unless each brings his own Range Rover Sport!)
