The Sport comes with all the latest safety tech

Safety and After Sales Service – The Range Rover Sport gets up to 8 airbags and a host of other active and passive safety equipment to keep you safe. The robust build quality is an added assurance. Given the premium positioning of the car, after sales and service is likely to be very good as well.

The Sport is the most practical Range Rover

Verdict – The Range Rover Sport is an exceptionally well-rounded SUV. We were not sure if we would like the smaller petrol engine but it has truly pleased us with its adequate performance and fantastic low-end refinement. The engine really works for someone who wants a refined petrol engine that is also economical. Other qualities of the Sport like a luxurious cabin, vast equipment list, eager dynamics, and great off-road prowess make the SUV an irresistible package. At Rs. 1.12 crores (on-road, Mumbai) the Sport is significantly cheaper than the bigger Range Rover. It might not have the same classy image of the Range Rover but the Sport, with its repertoire of abilities and the cheaper price tag, makes it a more compelling choice. And that is saying something.
