Same goes for Audi’s TT V8s too

My wife wants one but she’s not getting one without a six cylinder

New infotainment system is called Pivi Pro, designed by Blackberry, works decent but still not as smooth as other brands yet. I work at a Land Rover dealer and I still have several complaints from customers about it being slow and clunky.

Give me a used SVR sport and $80-100k in the bank over this thing any day...
Ugly?

Interesting comments here… I think the rear end styling is this vehicle's best feature. 🤷🏻*♂️

Same here, looks very sleek and cool, I easily see these black out taillights becoming a new trend in the auto industry.

The interior is stunning. BUT the rear? Not a fan. Ugh I like the old rear better.

Alongside the Porsche exhibit, this was really the only car worth seeing at the LA Auto Show this year.

I got to sit in a couple of these and was very impressed. Beautiful styling with an equally beautiful interior to match. Nice design details, very modern and European aesthetic. Interior quality is top notch.

I haven't seen it in person but there's a lot of neat little details that just add to its elegance and "less is more" design. The way the glass meets the body without any trim especially is very impressive. Very excited to get to sit in and experience one when they arrive at dealers.

I'm going to love seeing people getting locked out of their cars from the door handles malfunctioning. Bold move, Land Rover.

They're hardly the first. The Velar has had them for years. F Types, and of course Teslae.

Good to know. I guess I never noticed. I thought the Teslas were a push handle lever that hinges from one side like the Nissan GT-R, not a powered retractable handle.

Only on the Model 3 and Y, Model S still uses electric retractable door handles.

Not only that, they're powered by a 12v battery that likes to die. My neighbor has been locked out of his 3 a few times when that battery dies, even with all of the propulsion batteries fully charged.

I had a 2016 sport dynamic and I absolutely loved that thing. I want to get another one, but I'm not feeling this "soft" styling.

I'd rock a 2019 SVR over this without question.

Checking online prices, RR are holding their value better than BMW. The Range Rover Sport holds its value much better than an X5 for instance from what I can tell looking at online sources…
