Land Rover gave its Range Rover model a serious update for the 2010 model year, and included the Sport version in the process.
The Sport version of the Range Rover is designed for better on-road performance that its stablemates. As such, it has lower ground clearance.
The Range Rover line gets new engines for the 2010 model year. The Supercharged Sport version gets a supercharged direct injection V-8, the same engine that powers the Jaguar XFR.
The Range Rover holds five comfortably, with plenty of cargo room in the back. There are no third-row seats, however.
Along with its four-wheel-drive system, the Range Rover Sport rides on an adaptive air suspension. It can be raised or lowered at the touch of a button.
The rear cargo area is ample, befitting a full-size SUV.
Land Rover updated the luxury inside the cabin, replacing ugly plastics with wood, leather, and other quality trim elements.
Four-way buttons on the spokes of the steering wheel control stereo volume and other aspects of the cabin tech.
The six-speed automatic transmission has a very aggressive sport program, yet can handle low-range off-road work when needed.
The Terrain Response system adjusts the suspension and traction control for different surfaces. A Dynamic mode is new for 2010.
The adjustments to the Terrain Response system are reflected in this instrument cluster display.
The LCD shows off-road information that can be helpful when rock crawling.
The Range Rover Sport's navigation system is very basic, lacking features such as traffic.
Off-road navigation shows a compass and GPS coordinates.
The Bluetooth phone system downloads a paired phone's contact list, letting you dial by selecting a name on screen or inputting numbers.
The radio includes HD stations and satellite.
The iPod interface offers the usual options for browsing albums and artists, but we found this interface difficult to use while driving.
A rear-seat entertainment system was included in our car, with screens set into the backs of the headrests.
