What's wrong with the Range Rover Sport? I'll keep the Smart car for commuting and the 4X4 for towing and transporting wife + dog, so low mileage which means a petrol one would be a possibility if it was cheaper?
Bigmuz - Is the trim bad on RR's?
Chris - Why not the V10 - is the the fuel consumption or the reliability?
Having had the Holden V8 with 400hp I want something with some teeth!
There is no similar Jag - but for the same price who cares when you can get a n XKR which is not far off an Aston for a lot less money!!!
There is nothing at all wrong with the RR sport. It's just that the normal RR does most things better and is a better 2nd hand buy because they depreciate more.
I was looking at a 5yr old RR and it was immaculate - no sign of dodgy trim to me.
The Land Rovers don't always win the tests for nothing - they are always being voted 4x4 of the year etc these days.
My mate has a Porsche Cayenne - it is pretty good but more a jacked up estate. It's the V8 so pretty quick but the RR isn't far behind.
People keep attacking the RR for reliability - my mate's Cayenne is always in and out of the dealers - the last time for about 4 weeks. They gave him a 911 while he was waiting. They have now given his wife a brand new Boxster FREE because of a major cockup - it was that or go to court.........
There is NO SUV that can be a sports car - the physics are all wrong. Some are closer than others but then they suffer when it comes to any sort of off road use. LR have stayed closer to the theme than anyone else.
