2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
I traded in my 1997 Range Rover 4.6 HSE for the new Range Rover Sport HSE. You get the best of both worlds with the Range Rover Sport: The classic Range Rover styling and off-road capabilities coupled with the performance of a luxury sedan. The design of this vehicle is very upmarket. It is a handsome car. The interior quality is excellent. I have the very rare upgraded "Ivory" leather and cherry wood which looks much more opulent than the darker "Alpaca" and standard black "Ebony" interior. It looks and feels like a fine British coach. (I do wish the seats had darker piping like the big Rover.) Excellent power, handling and ride. Electronics are top notch. All A+
The looks. The navigation. The voice command system. The quality of the interior. Great xenons. High quality leather (Lux pkg.) Superb wood. Great handling. Great engine note. Lots of power. Gadgets, gadgets, GADGETS! Two gloveboxes. The ice box.
Erratic transmission shifts at very low speeds. Small sunroof. Only driver's side has auto up/down windows. No split tailgate. Cheap looking radio controls (Should be integrated into nav system like the big Rover.) Better bluetooth integration. Awkward rear headrests. Better tires. Sensitive brakes.
