Range Rover Sport SVR Wins Acclaim - FOUR WHEELER judges were impressed by the Range Rover Sport SVR’s on and off road manners.

Land Rover has reason to celebrate with the 2016 Range Rover Sport SVR named Four Wheeler of the Year by the editors of FOUR WHEELER magazine.

The U.S. publication, which is now in its 43rd year, is open to all new or significantly updated SUVs and judged over a week of testing featuring more than 1,000 miles of real-world driving.

FOUR WHEELER judges said the Range Rover Sport SVR performed best on and off road.

The first model to wear the high-performance SVR badge from Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), FOUR WHEELER Editor, Christian Hazel, says the V8 Range Rover model was a stand out.

“The Range Rover Sport SVR could have easily eschewed off-road capability in the interest of impressive track numbers, yet it remains pure to the off-road heritage the Land Rover brand was founded on,”

“Despite its impressive technological abilities, when you slide behind the wheel, drop the transfer case into low range, and point the front bumper at the top of the mountain, you feel you’re piloting a wonderfully analogue off-road animal.

“The driver-to-vehicle connection is uncomplicated. And at the end of the day, that’s what the true enthusiast-whether at the race track, dirt wash, or rocky trail-is after: the ability to become one with your machine.

“The Range Rover SVR delivers this connection, and that’s a huge reason why it was a favorite with our judges.”
