    The new Range Rover Sport will undoubtedly be the best selling Range Rover in India. With prices starting at Rs 1.09 crores for the V6 diesel, it is a whole lot cheaper than the hugely expensive full-size Range Rover. The TDV6 Autobiography was what we took for a quick spin on and off road at the Amby Valley city premises above Lonavla. 
     
    This new one is based on the full-size Range Rover and that means it has an all-aluminium chassis and body that helps cut its weight by 420kg (as compared to the old Sport that was based on the Discovery).
     
    What this directly translates to is a more agile SUV, one that can, to a certain extent, be thrown around an airstrip like a much smaller car and that’s exactly what we did. The Sport was taken through a slalom track and an emergency lane change maneuver course and it’s impressive how the Sport’s complex electronics and new found agility controls all that weight (it still weighs slightly north of two tonnes).
