TEST DRIVE OF THE 2014 RANGE ROVER SPORT

It has slimmed down 800 lbs it is built on an all new aluminum platform and it has a new V6 engine that is supercharged.  [su_pullquote align=”right”]Range rover has always said their cars are no compromise.

The question is does this lighter, smaller engine, luxury vehicle meet the standards of being perfectly English?

For those that love power, don’t worry Range Rover did not get rid of their giant V8 motor, they still have 510 horsepower if you want the V8. Now even luxury buyers are looking to get the best fuel economy out of their SUV and the V6 is quite enough power, thank you very much.

the V6 gets 17 miles a gallon in the city and 23 miles a gallon on the highway. while the V8 does get slightly less at 14 miles a gallon in the city and 19 miles a gallon on the highway.

Some very clever design strategies have made the new Sport look much bigger. The windows and glass area of the car brings daylight flooding into the cabin. Ready to personalize your interior? How about 11 interior color themes and additional seat colors, but wait i am not done yet. Four different aluminum trim finishes, three different wood grains to choose from and an astonishing three headliner color, nineteen exterior colors, three roof colors and nine wheel choices in four different sizes.

The interior design has been thoroughly modernized with a new layout and lots of very cool tech stuff that we would need a inter show just to tell you about. its no doubt Range Rover will have a home run with the new Sport. After all Prince Williams and Kate Middletons, Baby George, the future king of England, came home from the hospital in a Range Rover.
