The perpetual popularity of Sport Utility Vehicles like the 2017 Range Rover Sport has put every car company there is in the SUV business, from Kia to Bentley. But there’s only one automotive luxury brand that sells SUVs exclusively, and that’s Britain’s Land Rover. SUVs are not only all Land Rover does, it’s all it has ever done.
Like Jeep, the first Land Rovers were for military uses, but in 1948, the brand began selling its unique civilian SUVs all around the world. In the past 20 years, sales have exploded as the luxury brand expands its family friendly lineup and builds upon its revered Range Rover model line.
A large part of its the success has been the fashionable Range Rover Sport, first introduced in 2004. Now in its second generation, the 2017 Range Rover Sport continues to compete very successfully against a long list of popular, high-quality luxury SUVs including the BMW X5, Porsche Cayenne, Volvo XC90, Audi Q7, and Mercedes-Benz GLE.
