Thoughts after 1 week of ownership:
Quiet ride
Very very smooth gearbox with imperceptible gear change.
Good suspension ride for our Censored roads
Engine pulls well but it ain’t no SDV6 Rolling with laughter
Good sat nav and DAB radio actually works -Sport was always a bit hit and miss
Good seat adjustment for my dodgy back
Nice panaromic sunroof
37mpg
Feels light on the road and agile compared to bigger RRS
Lots more room under boot floor even with full size spare
Nice LED dipped light, full beam a bit crap. Might upgrade bulbs
Blind spot detection warning is very useful
Lane deviation warning should be good if tired but switched off for commuting
Has a dip stick Bow down Thumbs Up Bow down Thumbs Up
More to follow..... Visitor from fullfatrr.com

Select Sport mode and it shifts for sure....not quite as quick as the SDV6 but not far off....
All in all, I’m very pleased with it but would not want anything lower down on the spec list than the range topping Premium SE with the 185 diesel and auto box.... Thumbs Up Visitor from fullfatrr.com

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

One of my neighbours has a 5 year old Tucson and despite quite a high mileage it still looks like new inside and out - they drive to and from their 2nd home in Portugal twice a year, however if they go in the winter they leave the car at home for 4 months and fly out. I asked if they had ever suffered a flat battery leaving the car so long without use and without using a battery conditioner - easy in their Tucson as it has a “master” fuse as well as all the others and they pull that before they go and disable everything electric so there is no battery drain! 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring
2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, the best car I have ever owned, totally reliable only a cou0le of rattles in 3 years, now no longer in my care
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW

Main beam is Censored
Upgraded bulbs to GE 130+ ones at £35 a pair. Better but might alter beam angle to lift up a bit.
Will refit originals when car gets replaced with a new one in December Thumbs Up Visitor from fullfatrr.com

More feedback.
It's 4x4 mode is pretty good in the snow and I was quietly surprised at its ability in the white stuff. The same could not be said of the Censored BMW and Audi drivers with their high revving rear wheel drive antics that brought Southampton to a stand still last night! Visitor from fullfatrr.com
