The Range Rover Sport is quite... Sport, but not in the way it's name suggests. However, the car fully deserves this moniker, thanks to its response to two of our test drive's questions: the one asked by the adjacent chapter and the one that belongs to the open road's off-roading section.

Footballers noticed this from the first second a flash landed on its metal, but then again, so did everybody else. The adjustable air suspension of our test car even allows you to choose between a low rider, a normal and a rugged off-roader look, all hidden within the 10 cm (4 inches) of ride height.
The 2011 model year facelift is literally a facelift, bringing multiple changes to the front fascia. The most notable one are the LED front headlight, which have made some point fingers at the car, claiming that a true serious vehicle like a Range Rover, doesn't need contact lens. Shut up you, they're gorgeous.
The 20-inch rims of our test are another important part of the vehicle's visual speech. You could actually draw a pretty accurate, appealing sketch of the car just by penning the generous-sized wheels and the raked roof line. The short rear door also contributes to the dynamic look.
