The Range Rover Sport is the sportiest and most dynamic Land Rover ever made. The key difference between the Range Rover Sport and the bigger Range Rover comes in the form of extra seats. While the Range Rover can seat up to 5 adults, the Sport has an additional third row of seats that can seat two people.

Land Rover say that the Range Rover Sport will be as good off-road as it is on it. It comes courtesy of the Land Rover’s Terrain Response System with an ‘Auto’ function.

The new Range Rover Sport is built on the Land Rover Premium Lightweight Architecture (PLA) and boasts of a drag co-efficient of 0.34 which is really good for an SUV.
