SO, YOU WANT a car with a great mix of utility and luxury. A car that can go anywhere, has lots of power and yet is comfortable and practical, too.

I’d buy a Range Rover Sport.

Why a Range Rover Sport?

The Range Rover Sport is a class leading car and is one of the most successful vehicles Land Rover has ever produced. It is a seriously capable machine with buckets of brand appeal. It drives brilliantly, has a beautiful interior and the way it handles you would think it is half the size.

It is also a tech fest with features such as speed proportional Electronic Power Assisted Steering (EPAS), Hill Descent Control (HDC), Terrain Response and Low Traction Launch.

What’s special about this particular one?

This particular Range Rover Sport comes in range-topping HSE trim with the additional Dynamic Pack, which sees it get black design definition highlighted with a red sports badge. It is finished in metallic paint and has 21-inch 5 split-spoke alloys with Satin Dark Grey finish.

Who else drives one?

Who doesn’t drive one? The posh SUV’s appeal is global. The Kardashians are particularly fond of Range Rover Sports, but don’t let that put you off. Michael Phelps drives a Range Rover Sport HSE fitted with 24-inch chrome and black Asanti rims and David Beckham once owned a custom Range Rover Sport with ‘Beckham’ stitched into the carpets.

What else could you get for the money?

This car costs €79,950. For that kind of cash, you could also have this lovingly restored 1974 Volkswagen Beetle for €74,950…
