2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

Quite a few down in the sub-tropical central belt Lindab, must be those harsh cold east coast winds putting off buyers up there - I even saw the rare sight of one with the roof down in Stirling this afternoon! In this part of the country Evoque Convertablrs are much more common than Velars.
I wonder what made JLR think that their “ Road Rover” exercise would ever sell - that sort of vehicle is best left to Jaguar although Jaguar do seem to be out Land Rovering Land Rover with the F-Pace and E Pace 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

Correct Tim

If JLR have the E-Pace, built on the Evoque/DS platform, why can’t LR sell their equivalent... Confused

A luglio mi son invaghito della VELAR; ho trovato una First Edition a poco meno di 90k€ con 10k km circa;
Al momento di concretizzare qualcosa non mi ha convinto e a settembre ho preso una RRS.
Sono sempre più convinto che ho fatto la scelta giusta. Audi Q5 3.0 TDI AllRoad

United Kingdom 2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Buckingham Blue

Thanks, Avon. I put your comment through an Italian to English translator and got:

“In July, I fell in love with the VELAR; I found a First Edition for less than €90k with around 10k km;
but during finalisation of the deal, they did not convince me and in September I have taken a RRS instead.
I am more and more convinced that I made the correct choice.”

At least the next Jimny will still look like like a tough 4x4 -to me it looks like a scaled down Jeep Renegade......

I think I would have the Jag version over the LR version of this car - the Jag looks better as the Velar just looks a bit weird. The F Pace looks more proportioned and I think is a bit cheaper.


True on both accounts. When I swapped from RRS to F-Pace I priced up the difference on the same spec. The F-Pace was £11,000 cheaper, plus Jaguar gave me £1,000 more on the trade in on my RRS over Land Rover (same dealership)! I too prefer the style of the F-Pace to the Velar which looks like a mutant version of the RRS to me!

I agree with Jock.. I looked at a Velar, a lot more money for not much more car. Have to admit, air suspension was nice, however soon got use to not having it.
My F Pace is only a 4 pot Diesel, but it is just as quick as my Sport, (does not have the torque though) however, it burns a lot less fuel, plus it handles really well.
Thumbs Up In Spain - 2018 F Pace - Frightened away from the Sports due to crank failures
Gone - A couple of RRS, A couple of Disco's. Plus loads of cars, some I'm too ashamed to mention.
