Pros stylish, high-end feel, powerful & attention getter!
Cons gas mileage
Summary Purchase a vehicle for yourself! Do your research and find what SUV compliments your personality. This supercharged model is the best of both worlds, powerful and stylish and is not for the 'cheap-minded.' If your concern is gas-mileage, then this is not the vehicle for you, and for that matter, neither will that short skirt leaving the bar on Saturday night.. To each his own! 12k miles, and no problems, all options work as instructional manual stated they would. Get one...if you can afford her
Pros Great styling inside and out; extremely comfortable seats; fantastic ride
Cons Crummy display for stereo; can't fold down rear seats without moving front seats way forward
Summary I've had the non-supercharged version of this vehicle for about 3 months now. Overall I'm satisfied with my purchase and I've been blown away by the attention this car gets on the road. People of all ages have told me how awesome it looks, and I must admit the looks sold me on it as much as anything. The dealer equipped it with a Strut chrome grille package which really makes it pop and is much better looking than the factory grille.
The car has a beautiful interior and the leather seats are extremely plush and comfortable. The touchscreen navigation is decent but not great - everything is disabled when you're moving so you can't even get navigation help from a front-seat passenger while you're moving. It does have a voice recognition system but I can't get it to understand anything I say. I have a friend with a British accent and it understands him perfectly - I guess that tells you something.
I got mine with Sirius satellite radio which I love, but the tuner is a major disappointment. Instead of integrating it into the navigation display, Land Rover decided to use a clunky, 1980's style head that displays very little information and is clumsy to use when you have 200 channels at your disposal.
The car includes Bluetooth and it works reasonably well with my cell phone. There have been a few glitches here and there but I don't know if they're caused by the car or my phone.
One disappointment is that I can't fold down the rear seats without moving the front seats forward about 4". And I'm not even very tall! My old Mercedes ML 430 didn't have this problem.
The ride is fantastic. A little mushy in the turns but that's hardly surprising with such a tall, heavy vehicle. Acceleration is very good, even over our high mountain passes here in Colorado.
Overall I'm very happy with my Range Rover Sport and I can't wait to see how it behaves in the snow.
Pros Superb performance & handling. Most thoughtful interior design.
Cons Not found yet.
Summary I owned MB 500ML, BMW X5, Lexus GX over the past 4 years. The Range Rover Sport Supercharged is absolute the best in terms of performance, handling, feature and, interior design and layout.
Yes, the BMW does ride a bit smoother and the Lexus is much quiter. But, based on my own driving preference, the Supercharged Sport is a clear overall winner without a second thought.
It is fun to drive and, to my surprise, it delivers slightly better fuel economy than all my previous three SUV.
Pros Comfortable as all hell, Fun to drive, SOooOOOo SEXY,Your someone SpeCial!
Cons The cost of owning one in the Post George Bush's Presidencey ERA. YOU WILL FEEL THE ANGUISH OF THAT GAS COST KNOW MATTER WHO YOU ARE :><:
Summary This car is probabley...positivley the best all around car on the planet as of now. Functionality, comfort, horsepower (390, which do a very nice job for 5700 lbs), attention gripping stance, and sheer confidence on the road. At the same time the car is not overly large and or clumsy. The Gas is extreme, makes you feel guilty for even driving it. But, if you have the money, and are in the market for an SUV that is in the 58 to 76 range, this is it. If you study the pricing between the two models HSE/Supercharged you will find that an HSE with lots of options is almost pointless. Go for that superchasrged with only moderate options. It will be like a
3 G differnce for 90 extra horse. ITs cars like this that make me want to become rich ...

"amazing ride"on by bigrob16
Pros nice interior, great sound system, ride quality, adjustible suspension, off-road capabilities
Cons 19" wheels are bogus, rear door doesn't auto-open/close
Summary I have the 06 HSE with luxury package upgrade. This is a man's SUV. Don't be a pansy and buy a denali, X5, or Escalade. The rover get's more attention then all three of those combined. Importantly, the attention is well deserved. The ride quality is excellent and Land Rover's attention to detail can be seen all throughout the car. I took the rover up to 125 mph this weekend on I-85 and it felt like I was going 75. I had an Infiniti QX4 before this, which was a good SUV but this is on a whole 'nother level. And 1.
