What a fantastic car! Picked it up in April brand new after trading in my fourth Freelander 2 HSE - the Freelander has now become exceptionally dated and far too normal, even cheap. The MY12 RRS Supercharged however is a completely different matter. Whilst fuel costs are relatively high with the 5.0litre V8 engine, the performance is fantastic and really does the car's superbly sporty looks justice. With this Jag unit, the Rangey finally competes with offers from Porsche, BMW and Mercedes. However, it leads the way in 4x4 technology, as well as design, and most of all, interior quality and comfort. The Sport feels exceptionally premium inside, and the latest models are absolutely packed with technology. Of course, this is no Vogue! However, the exterior styling of the Sport more than makes up for its lacking in fullsize-only interior comforts. I didn't get the Autobiography Sport because I prefer the styling of the S/C HSE model, however the interior of the A/B is even better and offers more colour choices. Overall the Sport in my opinion is a more stylish Rangey, aimed at slightly younger audiences than the fullsize. I'm now 23 and it fits my life perfectly - it looks just as fantastic in the country when I'm visiting my parents as when I drive it around London's more exclusive areas. Anyone still in Cayennes, X5s or MLs should seriously consider switching to the RRS - even the image of Range Rovers has now far overtaken that of Porsches, BMWs and Mercs!
