Default Range Rover Sport

I couldnt see a topic for the RRS.. so here one is.

Autocar have driven the RRS and are reporting it this week in their mag. Anyone in England seen this? How do they rate it?

Had a quick breeze through it, and they drove it alongside the new supercharged facelift rangie...

They got a very nice pic of them both next to each other. Although similar, its clear to see how the sport is more lower and meaner.

I think the review was pretty positive.. especially about the handling.

I still don't get it!? Is the Range Rover Sport a replacement to the current Range rover OR simply a new model line?

New model line.. designed more for wagon-utes like X5 FX SRX Kubang etc.. RR will fight the off road section..

Basically instead of VW/Porsche/Audi's 1 car fight all sector strategy.. they split it in both.. which I think is a better idea because it can cut weight.

By how much? ...do we know the weight of the RR Sport? ... compared to the regular RR and to the LR3. Are we sure the off-roading hardware weighs less on the RRS or is it the shorter wheelbase and length that make it lighter?

Range Sport weighs about 2.4 Tonnes...

although this is veryy heavy, the car has some excellent handling dynamics meaning the weight wont show that much..
