Driven: 2016 Range Rover Sport Supercharged

If you're going to explore the riches of the Canadian Pacific Northwest for the first time ever, you have to do it in style. Vancouver, British Columbia, is already a beautiful place, but there's just something about stepping out of a fully loaded 2016 Range Rover Sport Supercharged when you arrive at your next adventure that makes you feel extra special. Get ready for heads to turn as you cruise around the city looking for an adventure at either of their many parks or just trying to find the best joint for authentic poutine (La Belle Patate on Davie Street is the best, trust us).

In case the weather decides to get a little wet, rest assured it won't rain on your parade. Forget all your worries in the Range Rover's spacious and composed interior. You'll fall in love with the premium leather seats and might be inclined to keep your pinky up as you admire the elegant details.

Oh, and gadgets galore! This is one of the smartest interiors we've been in (well maybe other than the BMW i8). From using the navigation in the tricked out center console to finding the nearest Tim Horton's to using the power-adjusted headrest, we kept discovering more knobs and buttons to play around with; we couldn't wait to see what amazing features this Range Rover was going to surprise us with next.

While you sit in the lap of luxury, the Range Rover, especially this Sport Supercharged edition, has more than enough muscle to take care of you against the harshness of Mother Nature. Flexing a 5.0-liter V8 engine, its on-road dynamics are matched by its all-terrain performance. With the rain only coming down harder we took the Range Rover up to Lynn Canyon Park to check out some of Vancouver's famous suspension bridges. Through tall trees, falling leaves and muddy terrain, the Range performed like a trooper and didn't mind getting dirty.

We even decided to test out its puddle performance, and it handled like a true Canadian. As we drove it through the rainwater, it politely endured and got ready for more, eh.

The Ranger Rover Sport Supercharged is the perfect ride for those who want to go on an adventure but still want to feel a little classy. You will have to pay a pretty penny for this model (base MSRP of $79,950), but we can tell you from experience, it's worth every cent.

Special thanks to Jaguar Land Rover Langley of OpenRoad Auto Group who made sure we were taken care of the right way, and to Josh Chow of Drive Marketing Group for being an excellent tour guide and allowing us to explore Vancouver in such an exceptional vehicle.
