The lone newcomer this week, the 2014 Dodge Durango SUV, checks in at No. 5, while a returning trio of MotorWeek videos featuring the 2014 versions of the Nissan Rogue, Land Rover Range Rover Sport and Porsche 911 Turbo S round out the middle of the roster.

Most-Watched Videos of the Week

2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Real-World Cargo Space

IMG_9783

The addition of "Sport" in the redesigned 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport's name may seem like a small difference between it and the classic Range Rover. For 2014, 75 percent of the parts in the Sport model are unique, however, and the model offers a drastically different experience compared to the regular Range Rover.

2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

The Sport is smaller in almost every dimension and lighter as well. That means a smaller cargo area with a maximum 62.2 cubic feet of cargo space compared to its bigger sibling's 71.7 cubic feet. Oddly enough, the smaller Range Rover Sport is the one that offers an optional third row. We tested a Range Rover Sport sans third row and stuffed our standard collection of golf bags, luggage, stroller and shopping bags in the cargo area. Check it out below in our cargo animation.

2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Review

2014LandRoverRangeRoverSport

For their $80,000, 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport buyers will be able to check most of their "wants" boxes: great ride; lush, comfortable interior; and formidable off-road capabilities (which they're unlikely to use). And the biggest box of all — having the sweetest, most opulent ride in the soccer-practice pick-up line — gets an extra-emphatic, "CHECK!" But Cars.com reviewer Kristin Varela says the disappointments are in the details. Read her review below and note her beefs with the luxury SUV's cornering skills as well as an annoying glare from the heated windshield.

2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport: Top Tether Trouble

14RRS_tetherhooked

Given the proliferation of Land Rover Range Rover Sports that line the drop-off lane of an elite private school near my home, one might assume that it's a near-perfect family car. After recently test-driving the redesigned 2014 Range Rover Sport, however, I've decided that it's not the best choice for those of us with kids who are still in child-safety seats.

Sure, the Range Rover Sport is magnificent. A rare specimen of beauty and brawn, it drives like a regal boss around town and can off-road like a beast. The newly updated interior is quiet, comfortable and spacious. Then you try to install child-safety seats and all hell breaks loose.

January's Fastest- and Slowest-Selling Cars

RangeRoverSport

As automakers report their total January sales today, many point to the polar temperatures seen in much of the country as a reason for subpar results. While the totals may be down, there were still plenty of cars selling quickly — coincidentally enough, many with all-wheel drive.

Best-Selling Car News

Twelve of the 18 fastest-selling cars either come standard with all-wheel drive or have it widely available. Although Wall Street had a bad January, perhaps some 2013 bonus checks helped brands like Land Rover, which had the top two spots on the fastest-selling list. Mercedes-Benz's redesigned and nearly six-figure S550 also made the list.

2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Video

If you can live without the sportier handling of its predecessor, you'll find the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport worthy of the brand. Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays says the luxury SUV, sporting Evoque-evocative exterior styling, carries the weight of its name while shedding the weight of its frame — 800 pounds to be exact. This allowed the Range Rover Sport to downsize to a supercharged V-6 engine while retaining V-8 acceleration. Watch the video above for more.

2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport's Features Battle Winter

14RangeRoverS_Windshield2

Across its lineup, Land Rover offers a heated windshield that uses a series of thin filaments embedded in the glass that you have to train yourself to ignore. I've always tested Rovers in fair weather and found the filaments distracting. That is, until winter came knocking in the Denver area. I was surprised how easy the heated windshield made cold mornings, especially when the temperature was 3 below zero and I had to drive my kids to school.

In fact, I was almost excited to start the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE and watch the ice melt off the windshield without using any elbow grease. The feature is part of the Front Climate Comfort and Visibility Package that costs $1,980. Although on the pricey side, it's especially nice that the heated windshield clears the whole glass, so there are no annoying distractions while on the road. It only took a few minutes for it to melt some serious ice, and I loved driving during a nasty snowstorm just to mock it through my clear windshield.
