My 2011 Range Rover Sport HSE Luxury is fantastic. It is literally loaded with every feature offered by Range Rover and worth every dollar it cost. Performance is the most outstanding point I want to make. It goes from 0 to 60 mph faster than Range Rover advertises. The torque is engineered to assist the engine for maximum performance. The reliability has been outstanding. By the way, most people who complain about the battery going dead simply forgot to turn off the switch in the refrigerator when they turned the car off. The paint (Santori Black) has remained in mint condition over the years - no fading at all and has retained the sparkling new car luster. Having heated seats and a heated steering wheel has been great when driving in the mountains. All the terrain features are seldom used but when you need or want them they absolutely perform. I was once caught in a terrible storm and found myself on a flooded highway. The water was 24 to 26 inches deep and I was able to drive through it. I've also taken it off road in Northern New Mexico and West Texas with no problems at all. The way the back seats fold down for extra cargo space is brilliant: if I am just in need of extra long space on one side of the cargo area, I have a choice of lowering either side of the back seat so I will still have room for a back seat passenger. All the controls are intuitive. There's no learning curve on how to use them. The sound system is also great. My only "negatives" are that (1) it drives so well that on long trips you can easily forget how fast you are going and (2) it was made before the blind spot detection was available. I consider myself a good driver and have not been in any accidents so it would have been helpful but not necessary. Some people complain about the gas mileage. It's not an issue for me. I've owned numerous high performance sports cars (Porsche, Mercedes, Jaguar) and several Range Rover Sport's and also one of the Range Rover HSE's. Of all these cars I prefer the Range Rover Sport because it has the torque and "feel for the road" that I enjoy.

Brakes tires or service of some sort is pretty often. expect tires every 15 to 20 thousand miles or less. Average 13 mpg. The non-supercharged is a rocket so think about the supercharged... Lost a lot of money on it and I got it pre-owned.

I wanted a Range Rover Sport for years but could not afford the leases. When they changed the body style in 2014, I no longer liked the look. At that time, I found a certified pre-owned 2011 available many miles away. I searched everyday for weeks on cars.com until I found the perfect vehicle with all of the options I was looking for. It is everything I wanted and more!! I love the contrast stitching on the leather, the arm rest for driver & front seat passenger and the heated front as well as rear seats. Most of all I love driving this truck the visibility is incredible.

Love this SUV

by from South Jersey on May 12, 2015

Loved this vehicle from the jump. Lots of power, handles great in turns and has plenty of luxury features. Heated steering, seats will be appreciated next winter. Navigation system is easy to operate. I've wanted a Sport LUX for years and really do love it. Cons: The Usual gripes.. Fuel economy and Bluetooth music connection to phone. The music upgrade happens in the 2012 version. Pros: It is very much a head-turner, cargo space is adequate. Remarkable tight turning circle for an SUV as well. Makes parking in tight spaces easier than I expected.

The RR Sport Supercharged is an unbelievable piece of machinery. 510 hp driven in the dynamic mode is quite an experience. It handles turns better than the Lexus LS460 it replaced...no big nosedive and unpredictability. To hear that supercharger kik in @ any speed is exhilirating...but to floor the pedal @ highway speed and still get pushed back in your seat is astounding. The seating is exceptionally comfortable, and the cabin is pretty quiet for the power and footprint of this vehicle. The only detractor is the electronics...there is no hands free dialing on the 2011...and trying to do anything which takes your eyes off the road at high speed could prove didastrous. I think they originally had the voice command driven hands free listed as a standard option, but removed it with anooyance and incompatibility complaints. THis is an amazing truck...just don't count on it for any amenities one might find in a Lexus...or even the Grand Cherokee or Ford Explorer for that matter. JD

Excellent ride, power and handling for an SUV. In a class of its own and I can see why. Been wanting one for a long time and finally bit the bullet. No regrets. With the interior update, upgraded engine and much improved reliability from the past it sits in a class of its own. Only downside: the rear seats sit high and are not as comfortable as they look so not ideal for long distance travel. Wish it had bluetooth for audio connectivity instead of wired connection to my iPhone. However this is now standard for 2012. Tailgate has the split version but lacking a power lift gate. Again this is now standard for 2012 although it does not have the split.
