2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Preview

By ,

Pros: The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport handles more like a sports sedan than a luxury SUV. The supremely powerful engine provides exhilarating performance and acceleration. The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is the epitome of luxury both inside and out.

Cons: As expected, the V8 version of the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is always thirsty. Its tapered roofline limits rear visibility. Speaking of the rear, it isn’t the easiest place to enter and exit. The prohibitive price of the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport does nothing to overcome the nagging reliability issues.
