Range Rover Sport: the ideal car for all occasions?
It’s rare that you come across a car that can cater to your every need, as well as future-proofing for changing circumstances, but the Range Rover Sport seems to pass this test with flying colours. There are plenty of reasons why this car is ideal for everyone from young professionals through to families, but in today’s article, we’re highlighting just a few of the main ones…
- A nippier Range Rover
Most people know the Sport model of the Range Rover family as being a smaller version of the classic Rover car, but it’s far more than that. The Sport was created with the every-day individual in mind, who wants all the style and luxury of a top-of-the-line SUV, but in a slightly more compact vehicle that can be used for a variety of purposes.
- Easily affordable
A classic Range Rover with all the bells, whistles and highest specification from the factory, could set you back a six-figure sum, but the Range Rover Sport pairs this back to give the driver that same high-end feel, but without the hefty price tag. In fact, if you were to investigate a Range Rover Sport lease, you’d find that a brand new model could be yours for hundreds rather than thousands. So, if you’re on a tighter budget, this could be the option for you.
- Plenty of space
One of the main reasons people opt for a Range Rover is because of the spacious quarters it offers, but that boot capacity often comes at a large price. If you go down the Sport route though, you’ll still get 784 litres in a standard five-seat car. So, whether you need it for sporting equipment, baby supplies or enough room for your regular, off-road family camping holidays, the Sport should suit every need.
- Projecting the right image
Being seen in a Range Rover instantly projects an image of success and a taste for the finer things in life, but a Sport also shows that you’re practical and reliable. This makes it the ideal car for professional use, sending the right kind of messages about your personality to potential and current clients, should you need to chauffeur them anywhere.
- Safety first
Looking at the Sport with your family’s safety in mind, you’ll be pleased to know that the Sport is incredibly similar to its big sister in terms of the safety features on offer. Standard fittings include front-side, curtain-side and rear-side airbags, park assist, a back-up camera, anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control. However, you’ll also find some models on the market with add-ons such as a surround-view camera for tricky parking spots, a forward-collision warning system and even automated parallel parking systems.
