"What a lovely looking Range Rover Sport HSE we have here. In the white with the 18" 5 spoke alloy wheels and privacy glass it is a real head turner. Inside you have the very comfortable full black leather interior with heated front and rear seats and electrically adjustable front seats with drivers memory as well. One of the best things on this car is the TV, this never gets old in a car as you can watch TV while parked up anywhere. The Harman Kardon sound system sound so crisp you will almost definitely impress your friends with what you have to drive."

Ten Second Review
The Range Rover Sport brings a dynamic, road-orientated sporting edge to Land Rover's product range, slotting neatly between the family-orientated Discovery and the super-luxury Range Rover. It all but matches the best of its sporting SUV rivals on the highway while decimating them when tarmac turns to turf. The latest revisions aim to keep it that way.
Forty years ago, the iconic Range Rover was seen as a sporty, lifestyle-orientated product. But somewhere, at some time since, something changed. The Rangey became a plutocratic luxury saloon that also happened to have the SUV wherewithal to get you home if your country estate turned out to be halfway up a mountain. A car that raised a bemused eyebrow if you tried to hustle it down a twisting B-road. And a car that opened up a big gap on the more family-orientated Discovery that was Land Rover ownership's next rung down. It was to fill this space that the Solihull brand introduced this Range Rover Sport back in 2005. Despite the name, it was Discovery, rather than Range Rover-based, but none the worse for that, with a more tarmac-orientated remit that, astonishingly, still managed to incorporate all of the Disco's legendary ability. The green lobby howled in protest, but customers who Land Rover would otherwise have lost to sporty SUVs like BMW's X5 or Porsche's Cayenne flocked into ownership. Four years on, initially minor issues like the slightly utilitarian cabin and the lethargic entry-level 2.7-litre diesel engine were becoming more significant and both were duly solved and, for 2011, Land Rover has moved the goal posts yet again with with more power, reduced emissions, an 8-speed autobox and improved interior features.
Is it sporty? Well if it isn't now, it's never going to be. This car's combination of air springs, active anti-roll bars and electronically-controlled damping have always produced a firm-on-the road experience justified by its extraordinary composure on the kind of back routes that would once have required sickbags if you were pressing on in a large SUV. Now it's even better, thanks to fine-tuning of the chassis and an active damping system that, in conjunction with the air suspension, can make calculations about road and driving conditions over 300 times a second. There are also massive Brembo brakes that manage to bring this 2.5-tonne monster from rest to 100mph and back to rest again in just 15 seconds. That's if you're at the wheel of the amazing 503bhp 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged Sport model with its awesome 461lb ft of torque, the only petrol option on offer to Range Rover Sport buyers and good for 62mph from rest in just five seconds if you're quick with the steering wheel paddles that many will want to control the slicker-shifting 6-speed automatic gearbox. That kind of performance is nice to have but in the real world, most buyers will end up behind the wheel of the diesel model. The original entry-level 188bhp 2.7-litre V6 diesel option was rightly ignored by many buyers who concluded that it was anything but 'sporty' and went for the 272bhp TDV8. The V8 has been dropped now, but the good news is that diesel duties are now provided by an altogether transformed 256bhp 3.0-litre V6 unit with 443lb ft of torque that's teamed with a new 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. Like the Discovery, the Range Rover Sport features Land Rover's unique 'Integrated Body Frame' twin chassis technology, giving ladder chassis-strength for off roading and a unitary body for luxury saloon-style cruising. That being the case, we probably shouldn't be surprised that this car is as good as it is off road but it's still a shock to be able to be able to keep up with a GTi on a twisting country road, then veer off to conquer the kind of off road terrain you couldn't even walk through. It all comes courtesy of air springs capable of raising or lowering the car by over 10cm, a low ratio transfer case, hill descent control and, best of all, the brilliant Terrain Response System. You simply switch the rotary knob to whichever of the settings best describes the land you're on - and leave the car to do the rest. There's a general driving programme plus one for slippery conditions (dubbed 'Grass/Gravel/Snow') and three specialist off road modes ('Mud and Ruts', 'Sand', 'Rock Crawl'). The improved system also includes a 'Dynamic' mode, designed to optimise performance on the road with sharper steering and firmer suspension with enhanced body control
Design and Build
Whether you like the look of a Range Rover Sport will have a big impact on whether you'll want to buy one. Like the Range Rover Stormer concept car on which it was originally based, it's dramatic, purposeful and very in-your-face, especially now. This improved version features these piercing LED front lights and a restyled aluminium mesh front grille above a larger air intake that helps the powerful engines breathe. More important however, are the changes to the cabin, lately improved with over 1,500 fresh parts. Once very Discovery-like, it's now more closely aligned with plusher Range Rover motoring, though the sloping centre console creates a more cocooned, cockpit-orientated feel. This and the plentiful use of soft plastics and lovely stitched leather should certainly make owners feel better about the fat cheque they'll be expected to sign, especially when the cabin is bathed in lovely mood lighting at night. It's certainly a much more luxurious, higher-end place to spend your time. The smart touchscreen display you'll find on the centre console helps here, removing some of the buttons previously dotted around the dash. A neat display screen is also included on the instrument cluster, giving an at-a-glance rundown of key information for the driver. The great high-set seating that offers such a commanding view and keeps kids quiet on longer journeys is designed for four in comfort and five if you must, though getting in and out of the back is somewhat impeded by the huge bite the rear wheelarches take out of the back door openings. There's a decently-sized 958-litre boot though, but the separately-opening rear screen that enabled you to drop in smaller items without having the open the whole tailgate has been dropped. For this latest revised model, you simply thumb boot release button on the key fob and the tailgate (now fashioned from aluminium) powers up all by itself. Fold the rear seats and there's 2013 litres.
Market and Model
Combining arguably the world's most prolific off road ability with cutting edge SUV on road handling isn't a cheap proposition, so you won't be surprised to find list prices likely to put you Range Rover Sport purchase somewhere in the £45,000-£65,000 bracket. It's some comfort that comparable versions of obvious sporting SUV rivals like BMW's X5 and Porsche's Cayenne are priced at about the same level. Whether you go for the six cylinder diesel or the supercharged V8 petrol model, design and equipment levels have moved up a level with colour changes to exterior detailing and new interior colour schemes for the Autobiography Sport. For the first time on the Range Rover Sport, a 7-inch, wide aspect ratio touch-screen is available with optional Dual View technology, allowing the driver to view the navigation display while the passenger watches TV or a DVD while listening on WhiteFireTM headphones. The rear seat entertainment package has also been enhanced with the availability of WhiteFireTM wireless technology. Improvements have been made to the Hi-ICE and Premium audio systems, too, the Premium Harman Kardon LOGIC 7 installation now offering 825W of power through no fewer than 17 speakers. The new 'Say What You See' voice command helps the driver learn commands with useful step-by-step screen prompts and allows the use of spoken short codes too.
Cost of Ownership
There's only so much you can do to reduce the running costs of a vehicle that tips the scales at over two and a half tonnes - more even than the Range Rover and almost twice the weight of a family hatch. Still, Land Rover has had its attention focused on environmental issues in recent times and the Range Rover Sport is reaping the benefits in its own relative way. The engines are undeniably efficient for their size and power outputs, considering they're fitted to a vehicle of the Sport's size and capability. The combined fuel economy for the 3.0-litre diesel engine is over 32.1mpg and that equates to CO2 emissions of 230g/km. The 5.0-litre engine is predictable less thrifty, managing only 19mpg, with 348g/km emissions. Residuals aren't bad, suggesting that a three year old model with 30,000 miles would fetch 60% of its original value.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
