2016 Range Rover Sport SVR first drive
But remember: there’s room for five (despite the bolstered outboard seats on the rear bench), there’s more luxury than you’ll find in an equivalently priced Porsche, and this thing can climb trails like a billy goat.
And you can drive it home. In utter comfort.
Even with the track-tuned suspension, large wheels, relatively low-profile tires, and all of the goodies that add $30,000 worth of SVR to the standard Range Rover Sport’s sticker, this is one plush place to be on the highway. It’s comfy, roomy, and quiet. There’s even a giant panoramic sunroof. There’s really nothing at all to complain about—and 2.5 tons of stuff to enjoy.
Having driven it back-to-back with the new 2016 Jaguar F-Type R AWD (more to come on that front soon), we are left wondering why anyone would give up all of the Range Rover Sport SVR’s utility for not really much more real-world performance, at around the same price. It’s just brilliant.
