Photo 2/4 | 2016 Range Rover Sport SVR Long Term Report 2 002 | The large intercooler inlets and radiator grille tip off the SVR’s on-track breeding, but even so, with the suspension fully extended in “Off-Road Height,” there’s a surprising amount of available approach angle.

The off-road system is so capable and so seamless that these vehicles beg to be used hard off road. Stress from potential tire damage is the biggest factor when ’wheeling our Range Rover SVR test unit.
Photo 4/4 | 2016 Range Rover Sport SVR Long Term Report 2 001 | We guesstimated the loaded weight of our Jeep and trailer combo at 6,400 pounds, which is just a tick under the SVR’s max towing limit of 6,614 pounds. We got a best tank of 11.43 mpg with a tail wind and a worst of 9.21 running into a headwind. Not too shabby for a supercharged V-8 under load.
