13 range rover sport :test drive

so a friend of mine works at a range rover dealer... I stopped there today to show him the new m3 ... next thing I know I am test driving a range rover sport HSE.

all I can say is wow.. truck is awesome, very quick for a SUV and handles very nice...

I always figured if I were to purchase one it would have to be a supercharged or else it would be slow as hell... well i was wrong..

definitely considering picking one up in the future !!

Range rovers have always been nice.
If it weren't for their reliability issues, they would dominate the luxury SUV market.

Garage List
2012 BMW  [0.00]
The non supercharged Range Rovers were complete dogs until they upgraded the motors a couple of years ago. Now the base models have about the same output as the old SC and the new SC are putting out 500 hp

I would be completely amazed if TATA Motors did not increase the reputation of Land Rover's reliability. TATA Motors is one of the leading auto manufactures in India, so they should be able to pass on something to Land Rover

The new one looks like an Explorer. My favorite modern Range Rover is still the first gen supercharged model before it was given those hideous angel eyes.
