First-Generation Range Rover Sport Production Ends
text size: A- A+
The Range Rover Sport started out in life more as an experiment, being launched in 2005, when the British automaker was under Ford ownership. Unlike the new model, which shares its chassis with the Range Rover, the first one was built on the Discovery's Integrated Body Frame architecture.
As we found out during our Range Rover Sport test drive, this brought excellent offroading abilities, but it did affect the on-road driving.
Land Rover tells us that the last eight years have seen the Range Rover Sport convincing over 400,000 customers.
The Range Rover Sport's eye-catching looks made many ignore its on-road daults, but now the new one has a more difficult mission. Times have changed and the 2014 Range Rover Sport must prove that it is a capable all-rounder.
