Capable on road and off, Range Rover Sport SDV8 is 2015 4×4 Australia Magazine 4×4 of the Year.

The twin-turbo, diesel powered Range Rover Sport has been named 4×4 Australia Magazine 2015 4×4 of the Year.

The coveted award comes the way of the new Range Rover Sport on the back of what the magazine’s judges said was uncompromising performance and drivability in real world conditions – both on road and off.

Interestingly, another Land Rover offering – the Discovery 3.0 SCV6 finished runners-up in the award after the finalists were put through a grueling 2000km off-road test.

Dean Mellor from 4×4 Australia Magazine says the Range Rover Sport is the complete SUV/off-roader package.

“Range Rover Sport – Wow! On the road the Sport is one of the best handling and most comfortable touring wagons ever built, yet at the flick of a switch it transforms into an extremely capable off-roader. Oh, and that twin-turbo diesel V8… simply amazing.”

The Range Rover Sport SDV8 is priced from $139,000, check out our most recent Range Rover Sport review.
