Land Rover has also updated its sporty line-up. We picked the vehicle worked upon by the Special Vehicle Operations division, to sample the new Range Rover Sport.

The Range Rover Sport is the sportier, cheaper than its 7-seater sibling of the flagship and has been a crucial cog in the Range Rover line-up. Although the company has refurbished the whole variant range and like in the Range Rover also added a PHEV variant, for the Sport we chose to drive the souped up SVR version.

Unlike the Range Rover, the mid-life facelift of the Sport and specially the SVR variant sees far greater changes on the outside. Striking new slimline pixel-laser LED lights sit on either side of a new grille but the Sport, like its much more expensive sibling, is also available with a range of lighting options. Add to this a new bumper and you have a totally fresh looking Range Rover Sport. For the SVR version, there is the carbonfibre bonnet with larger air-scoops and a liberal use of carbon-fibre. As a result, you get a mean looking machine, that may not look harmonious but does stand out as something special, or crazy, as the perception may be. In addition, at the rear there is an aggressive new spoiler, for aerodynamic, aesthetic and cleanliness purposes and three new alloy wheels complete the changed look.
