I have been running my 2012 RRS SDV6 HSE for 18 months now and am very happy with all aspects of the car. It does everything I ask of it. It drives like a sports car, but is unstoppable cross country, even on standard road tyres.
Before buying the Sport I test drove the Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne. They are all very nice cars, but there was just something about the Range Rover Sport that set it apart. I can?t really put my finger on it, but the RRS is really in a league of its own.
The dealership I purchased through provided me with a half day off road training session, which my wife and I attended. On the road the RRS handles most situations with ease. Off road it is unstoppable. The car we drove was a standard car with standard road tyres. The only extra was underbody protection which have no bearing on a vehicles cross country ability. At one point we negotiated a rock climb that had just defeated the Land Rover Defender, the car was literally like a mountain goat.
It handles well for a 2.5 ton, is safe and has tremendous road presence. When you drive a long distance in it you always have a sense of 'well being'. It is extremely comfortable and you can make a long trip and still feel fresh at the end.
Downside is the running cost with mpg in the late 20' early 30's. Best mileage I have achieved is 32mpg on a 250 mile drive at night on the motorway with the cruise control set at 70MPH. Tax, insurance and servicing costs are also high.
Don't believe all the horror stories about reliability and build quality. My car has never missed a beat and would happily recommend the Range Rover Sport to anyone.
I will be replacing my current RRS in the next month or so with................the 'new' RRS, which is even better than my current one!
A real jeckyl and hyde car.
Drives like a performance supercar coupled with the height of luxury. I don't know how many cows are used for all the leather but it is just so comfortable inside it is untrue.
Miles of room inside, the most comfortable seats ever and they pull off that farm practicality look whilst keeping every button, every dial looking like it's out of Harrods!
Really quick too and doesn't roll like most big cars.
Range Rover always look cool with black badges and outside it keeps the luxury up while looking a bit mean. Long journeys were always a pleasure.
Downside is running costs - ouch !! At 20.3 MPG (think other versions are much more economical) the petrol tank was simply too small and required a fill up every 5 days which was annoying.
Residual costs in this economy are also too heavy for new cars but I bet there are some real bargains out there.
Got stuck in a field parking at a country park once and the low profile tyres couldn't get it out!
Overall I would say that if you are looking for a car that looks and runs great on road and buying petrol isn't such a worry then this is the car for you.
Very comfortable, go anywhere vehicle with surprisingly good performance. Slightly disappointing fuel economy compared to the competition from BMW and Mercedes but has a better quality feel than those. Surprisingly small inside for the size of the car outside. A very heavy car compared to the competition which blunts performance, handling and fuel economy. Overall though, an excellent car which I would be very pleased to replace with a newer one in due course.
This is my second RRS the car is one of the best in its class, many people looking for there first RRS go for the Tdv6 which is a nice car but the Tdv8 is better in many ways, the Mpg is only 1 less than its smaller brother and they are both the same band for insurance and tax ( depending on the year). This one is about 31 mpg the ride is very comfy and you feel like you are in control of the road ahead,
Superb drive on long journeys: to Spain with dogs on board. Great cabin comfort, superb handling, relaxing cruising at high speed, excellent visibility, large boot capacity. I have had personal experience of the car's ability to maintain reasonable control and protect me from serious injury in a high-speed crash.
I brought this car two years ago as I was givien one as complamentery car when my car at the time an Audi A4 was having some repair work done I had the range rover sport for two weeks on insurance hire cover and decided to change from my Audi to the range rover love this car it's the best car I ever owned
Probably the best motor car I have owned, or am likely to own. Fast, reliable, comfortable and safe the only downside in today's climate is the cost of keeping it on the road. A small price to pay for all the plus elements of such a beautiful automobile.
the sport is lovely cruising on motorways, but doesn't like corners on ordinary roads. The back end tends to skitter.
with careful driving the diesel engine gets just over 27 mpg, but put your foot down and this plummets!
best car ive ever ownd lots of difrent selectable road settings and off road settings . very comphy car to drive and allways been reliable to, not had any problems with it.
I have not had this vehicle long but I am very happy with it so far, it is very comfortable and sitting higher is a good plus for driving.
A quick, comfortable and reliable vehicle with superb off road capabilities. Lugs our dog and all of our stuff about with consummate ease.
all parts are very expensive it is also very thirsty when it comes to fuel
Just drove from UK to Turkey and back. Enjoyed every moment behind wheel.
Just what I wanted and expected and a lovely car to drive
What a car but expensive motoring
