The other end of the spectrum

The Suzuki Jimny 2019 - a little smaller and cheaper than the Sport but Top Gear seem to like it and it beats the FFRR off road too

I'm not sure the chap in the RR is the best driver. There will be places where the tables would be turned..

At least the RR didn't have to suffer the ignominy of being towed out by the Jimny. "I am never content until I have constructed a model of the subject I am studying. If I succeed in making one, I understand; otherwise I do not" - Lord Kelvin

England 2012 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Autobiography Fuji White

I used to have a SJ413 Samurai and it was awesome. It would pull most things out of the mud including Land Rovers. In my cars case, it was the Tyres that made light work of it not the car. It was good for what it was but with Road Tyres it was just another car stuck in the mud. Big paddles made the difference but then it was crap on the road. In my limited experience, the Defender and disco make the best of both worlds. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

Daihatsu Fourtrac is also much under rated and equally sniggered at by those who don’t see them doing what they were designed to do - bit like RRS’s really, way more capable than 95% of owners will ever find out. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring
2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, the best car I have ever owned, totally reliable only a cou0le of rattles in 3 years, now no longer in my care
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW
