This car so it’s got a new bumper new headlights new rear bumper new spoiler there’s some changes inside, which I’ll explain in a bit and it starts from 64,000 pounds but if you’ve got a car where you can save an average of three thousand pounds on a Range Rover Sport SUV 2019.
To go to car Wow the big news here on the inside of the updated Range Rover Sport is the fact that you get the invitation system from the valar. so it consists of three screens so there’s this top screen here, which is very wide and it controls all your main infotainment functions so your satellite navigation your phone your media your Bluetooth and all that sort of stuff and you can swipe between different menus and things like that below it is a screen which controls your climate control your seats and various vehicle functions and you actually operate the climate by turning this dial and you can switch between the fan the heating and the heating for the seats as well then over here you have a widescreen digital display for the driver which you operate using these buttons here so what I think of the system well it’s alright you know I don’t think it’s quite as responsive as the screens that you get with BMWs and Audi’s and Mercedes and some of the menus can be a little bit confusing the screen down here is alright as well but the icons coming a little bit small which means having to take your eyes off.
The road for too long when you’re driving which isn’t great what’s also not great is the fact that this system doesn’t come with Android auto nor apple carplay now for my fault detailed review of the infotainment system and have another look round the cabin click on the pop-up banner in the top right hand corner of the screen for my detailed infotainment video review now in terms of standard equipment the HSE car gets stuff like a 20 inch alloy wheels you get leather seeds yeah it’s a Meridian sound system now if you upgrade to the dynamic you think it even larger alloy wheels and various shiny bits of satiny trim around the cabin which make it feel even Pacha if you move up then to the top of the range autobiography that adds stuff like heating and cooling for the seats.
You also get a panoramic sunroof and adaptive cruise control but that does add to the price so this is the Autobiography model and it’s got the v8 diesel engine and some of the bits and pieces and the list price of this car is actually 98 thousand pounds but I put the details into car way and I got an offer back for 94 thousand pounds ever little bit helps I think but does this car feel like a ninety thousand pound vehicle here on the inside in terms of quality well do you know what I think it does so the design is nice and chunky it looks pretty cool I like the way that you’ve got leather on the dash on the door tops and I can’t really find a cheap feeling bitter plastic anywhere in this car there is one place actually it’s just down here on the side of the seats but that’s it however you do occasionally touch that when you’re adjusting the seat rather than that yeah the quality is really good and there’s some touches I really really like about this car as well and they all for some reason have something to do with mirrors that could just because I’m a bit vain for instance I like the control panel for the side mirrors it’s just one unit nice and simple very clean design I like the fact you’ve got a frameless rear view mirror but my favorite bit is this look the vanity mirror you slide it open it’s got these little lights and it kind of reminds me of the mirror that you get in a theater changing room I’m ready for my close-up now darling for that now in terms of the seating position yeah Range Rover has always have great seating positions so you do sit nice and high but in the sport you feel a bit more cocooned in it than a normal range rover because of the wraparound – design and here you sit more in it but you still feel like you’re sitting on top of it if that gonna make sense.
I think I particularly love the captains chairs where you have these armrests so yes you can drive along feeling very very important and there’s plenty of adjustment in the seats as well yes I could do this for ages but you’ll get bored and you have electric operation of this during column also the steering world in the sport is slightly smaller than that in the normal range rover to make it feel more sporty terms of the seats themselves. do you know what I find them a little bit on the firm side so they can give a bit of an achy bump, after a while but I do like this look you can alter the headrest get yourself nice and comfy.
Finally we come to storage and it’s pretty good so you’ve got this little extra glove box up here though there isn’t really that much room to store stuff but just think of it as a bonus because under here you’ve got a normal beloved box now under here, you have a fridge look at that Plus this a USB, input there and there and a 12 volt socket as well I like the way they’ve cut away this area, cuz it means when you put it down you don’t snag your cable for your mobile phone, under here you have your cupholders and they’re big enough to hold it your coffee cup speaking of which underneath, here is a little storage area where you can actually store your favorite brand of coffee how cool it is, that what I’m not so keen on though are the door bins they’re a big enough size and you can fit a big bottle in and the problem is that the way the door handle sticks out it means there’s not enough room between the handle and the seat.
To get your bottle of water so you have to actually open the door to get it out which obviously you can’t do when you draw anything now I’m going to use this to illustrate the practicality in the back but first I want to show you this so this is quite a high carb but to get in you do have to kind of like jump up a little bit which isn’t gonna be great for kids or elderly people now the card is actually lower automatically when you open the door on it’s air suspension to make it as low as possible but this still is like I say a bit of a leap to get in terms of the cubby space is there well the door bins are quite big here as well but once again you have the same issue with the seat and the big door handles that you have to just yes that did fit Oh terms of space for adults well look knee rooms good Headroom is good it’s not all great for instance these rear seats seem quite low so your knees are a little bit high.
Which isn’t that comfortable another ratio I have is the fact that you can’t really fit your feet under the chairs in front unless they jack them all the way up so you can’t stretch out as much as you can in the back of an Audi eight you can though recline the rear seats if you want which is good and if you need to carry three people at once in the back this is better than the Audi part the reason is because you’ve got a completely flat floor so you don’t have to worry about where everyone puts their feet as loads of room also the square body means that those on the outside seat don’t have the head rubbing on the corners they’re liar which is handy terms of other bits of practicality well you got some airplane style folders there as well which feel high-quality and they’re sturdy enough to hold a heavy iPad securely there’s a little storage area here which I’m not entirely sure what it’s there for maybe it’s perfect for your chocolate bar lap your climate controls here as well digitally operated there’s a USB import so that even controls are mobile devices and there’s even and this particular car look I’ve got a normal
