“The Range Rover Sport’s performance, ride and handling have been transformed with the introduction of new engines, transmission and chassis systems. Combine these enhancements with the contemporary style and luxury of the revised interior, and it’s clear that the Range Rover Sport remains the only choice as the quintessential SUV sports tourer”
Phil Popham, Managing Director, Land Rover

The Range Rover Sport reaffirms its status as the most exciting and dynamic member of the Land Rover range with a comprehensive package of engineering and design changes for the 2010 model year. The vehicle’s stylish new appearance signals the transformation under the skin, which includes two powerful and efficient new engines – the LR-TDV6 diesel and LR-V8 5.0-litre supercharged – enhanced levels of interior craftsmanship and refinement, and significant improvements to both on-road and off-road driving dynamics.

The vehicle retains the acclaimed LR-TDV8 diesel engine and this model also benefits from upgrades to the design and under-the-skin enhancements.
A comprehensive programme of chassis system modifications has transformed the Range Rover Sport’s on-road dynamics, while also delivering a substantial improvement in its off-road capabilities.

The introduction of new systems such as Adaptive Dynamics, working in conjunction with the existing Dynamic Response, known as active ride control (ARC) on Supercharged models, and the addition of the road-focused Dynamic Program to the Terrain Response™ system help enhance agility and ride quality. Further improvements to the Terrain Response™ system ensure that off-road capability is kept at the expected class-leading level.
The Range Rover Sport’s stylish, muscular exterior has been updated to provide a cleaner, more sculpted feel. Striking signature LED headlamps combine with a new two-bar grille, front bumpers and wings to create a more sporting and aerodynamic stance. At the rear, new light clusters and a revised bumper design mirror the smoother front end.

The interior has been comprehensively redesigned, using higher quality materials, soft-touch finishes and superior craftsmanship to create a premium environment which is truly worthy of the Range Rover brand.
“The Range Rover Sport has generated a passionate following among customers who require the performance and refinement of a true sports tourer but who value the formidable off-road ability of a Land Rover. Now that we have widened its range of capabilities even further, the following for the Range Rover Sport looks set to grow stronger still.”
Phil Popham, Managing Director, Land Rover

The interior is considerably better with an all-new dashboard and 50% less buttons.

It really feels much better quality than the previous RR Sport. Better leathers, more padding, sportier seats.

More powerful than our W164 ML320 CDI!

Looks like I'll have to persuade them to get one as a replacement when the time comes (They're not into British Cars, after their experience with them 30+ years ago,.).

By far the least impressive of the LR facelifts. But oh, that new V8....

Im loving the new interior but i think it looks a bit (excuse the term) "chavved up".....not as keen on this as the other 2 facelifts

Not sure wether the facelift is an improvment. It sounds odd, but I'll have to see it with numberplates to make a final judgement. Still a handsome looking car though.

Err... Well, it IS nicer - perhaps the least changed... The new tail lamps are nice. Interior is good, awesome new engines. What? no TDV8?? Too expensive to get through Euro IV for the RRS I guess?

Still quite a nice looking thing - though I'm not a fan of the rims. Looks like it already went to Overfinch. I like the older, more rugged / classy / chunky ones.

Overall, LR has done well with LED's and interiors, but some exterior changes on the designs are borderline tacky. Perhaps not so much so with the RRS.
