2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

Land Rover’s venerable Range Rover can tackle tough off-road terrain that would foil less-capable SUVs, yet it still has the cachet to warrant a front-and-center parking space at an upscale hotel. Much of the Range Rover’s style and off-road-ready hardware has carried over to the automaker’s less expensive Range Rover Sport. To be clear, the Range Rover is unrelated to the Range Rover Sport.

Amazing, Powerful Engine and Fun Car!

I have owned a 2011 Range Rover Sport HSE for about 6 months now, and I have to say that I am personally very happy to drive this vehicle on a daily basis! Let’s start off with the engine. Very powerful and strong V8! The car is very fast and the acceleration is off the roof! This engine is pretty reliable in my opinion, it has not given me any major problems whatsoever. The exterior is pretty stylish and classic, and the interior is super comfortable seats and very luxurious car overall. Heated seats, off road abilities when necessary. Decent space for a trunk. Also the speakers are incredible, and for a 2011 car, it has a respectable amount of great features! Trunk has decent amount of space, nothing crazy. Now, the only down sides about this car, is gas. Yes, seriously this is a powerful V8 engine, so if you do not mind paying just a little extra for gas, then this car is perfect for you! Absolutely no complaints, just amazing experience!

Issue with the engine!!!

Overall this is a beautiful vehicle BUT Range Rover new of the defective engine between 2010 to 2015 and will not do anything to help fix the issue. Now my range rover is in restricted performance mode and will not turn on! Look it up. I took it in for a tune up and they didn't notify me of a serious issue and shortly after that, it shut down.
