2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

Odd I thought that the last all new Range Rover model was in 2011 - the Evoque.................. 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW.... my fun car to enjoy bashing and denting 20 years old and still giving loads of fun

From those pics I now know why the D pillar looks odd - the black of the pillar needs to be raised a bit at the front end to get rid of the unsightly little curve right at the top of the rear quarter window, if the designers had taken the line from the top of the window line aft to where it ends at the moment I think removing that little step would improve the appearance of the D pillar. Maybe somebody good with Photoshop might like to prove me wrong Smile 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.

From the rear it reminds me of the F-Pace - it is built on the F-pace platform Confused

I'm with you Tim. The rear corner of the roof and glasshouse just jars. A black roof would solve it but a Range Rover should have the "floating roof" look. 2012 SDV6

You're exactly right. However, a raised line wouldn't then meet the bottom of the aerofoil. The only answer to me would be to specify a black roof. Even then, I still don't like the curved rear quarter window.
