Advice needed / HST Firenze red / Ivory Headliner

Hello all

last week I ordered a firenze red HST with an ebony/ivory interior and an ivory headliner.
Question to those, who have an ivory headliner: would you order it again or would you go for a ebony one?

The testcar had an ivory headliner (non-suede) and it was really a pleasure inside. very friendly, not dark and with the panoramic sunroof really a pleasure.

the headliner is the online "unsure" point which I have. should I go for the ebony one or not?
I am interested in some feedbacks - perhaps also pictures from cars.

thank you
regards

I have a similar dilemma! I think I prefer the black headliner generally (my wife has it in her evoque) but am worried with ebony seats the inside will just look a bit gloomy. (last 2 cars I have had have had light headliners). On the other hand I am worried that the ivory might look at bit 'yellow' and look a bit odd with the general theme of red/black outside and black inside....

It a shame I cannot see these in real life at the dealership and my build cutoff is today - currently have the ivory headliner with ivory door tops/mid section and ebony seats. Also thinking about a last minute switch to HSE Dynamic from HSE Silver with the pimento seats/door tops/mid section and black headliner to fuel my mid life crisis!

thank you @Eagle77

in my last Autobiography I had all ebony and it was really dark inside - gloomy, as you mentioned
therefore we have chosen the ebony/ivory seats. My wife wants the ivory headliner and I like it also - but, I also don't know how it comes in the HST.
Google shows a few firenze red RRS HST with the Ivory headliner and, honestly, it looks really classy from outside. the ebony/ivory seats and the ivory headliner give the car a touch of elegance in all this sportiness

here an example (it has full ebony seats):

This is the interior I have landed on, in part thanks to your thoughts on the inside - Mrs Eagle77 vetoed the red seats ):

yep - ivory headliner, door tops, wheel centre and mid dash panel. Black everything else including the centre console trim. HST interior looks great and whichever interior colour you go for will be awesome especially the D350 engine! I also added the 360 camera and drive pro pack with adaptive cruise plus a few other bits and pieces. MY2022 HSE Silver D300 on order in Firenze Red with black contrast roof

great - congratulations for the choice Smile

I will also keep my Ivory headliner. yes, with the black/red combination outside perhaps a black headliner would be the better combination
looked from the perspective of a driver/passenger - an Ivory headliner might be more "friendlier" and opener, then a Ebony one...
The test-car, which I have driven, has given me an "open" and "wide" feeling in the cabin - also an Ivory headliner Range Rover Sport HST D350

My Evoque had an ebony roof lining with charcoal seats, it was exactly what I wanted and was what I was looking for when I swapped it for my RRS.

My RRS has Ivory headlinings, door tops, steering wheel centre and dash inserts (the dash top is ebony as are the seats), this was not my choice and at first I wanted to dye the leather to match. Now though I love the ivory headlining and the leather inserts and when I see all charcoal/ebony I think how dark it makes the cabin.

Have you gone for ivory seats, if so definitely choose the ivory head lining. Tim

@RRT
thank you very much! Looks very fine

@timhum
for the HST there is an Ivory/Ebony combination of the seats.
therefore you could go with both. but, I head in my last four cars a black headliner.
I will stay with Ivory.. it looks so classy... Range Rover Sport HST D350

I thought, that a ebony headliner COULD better harmonize with the Firenze red and black/carbon details outside

I have seen a few pictures if red RRS with an Ivory headliner - looks really classy Range Rover Sport HST D350
