Lower running costs thanks to its oil sipping nature make the Range Rover Sport Diesel a tempting proposition in the luxury SUV segment.

The Range Rover Sport (Rangie Sport) sits in between the smaller Evoque and the flagship Range Rover, allowing the Rangie Sport to open up the English marque to a new breed of luxury SUV buyers while giving the Range Rover its unique space at the top of the tree.

A new Rangie Sport was introduced last year, boasting the loss of 420kg, thanks to extensive use of aluminium in its construction.

If a computer was tasked to come out with an average design of the Rangie and Evoque, the result would probably look like the Rangie Sport as shown here

And if humans could go on a weight loss program as successfully as this car, fitness and slimming centres would be out of business.

Up close and Personal

Unless the Rangie Sport was parked next to a Range Rover, you could easily mistake it for the latter. But look a little closer and you will realise that the Rangie Sport is much sleeker than its bigger sibling, thanks to its Evoque-like styling inspiration.

Hop inside and you'll find that the Evoque and Range Rover theme has been carried over into the Sport's cabin.

Everything is given an air of class, thanks to the abundance of leather trimming. Fit and finish of everything on board is first-class standard.

Being larger than its predecessor, there's now even more room inside and more seats too (diesel models only). Seven seats come as standard, though the last row is probably meant for children.

Which is why it'll make more sense to just keep the third row folded (by a touch of a button) - giving you 784 litres of cargo capacity which is expandable to 1,761 litres with both second and third rows flat.

Seats six and seven will deploy or stow in approximately 10 seconds
