    Range Rovers have questionable reliablity

    yes are right range rover reliability isnt to secure but we have a certain bond with the dealership already so if anything happens they fix it no charge ..


    + the cayenne is everywhere ...

    To me, the Cayenne is a sell out of the Porsche brand. Then again, I think the Range Rover Sport is a sell out of the Land Rover brand. Guess I dislike them equally on that basis :dunno:

    However the Sport looks less like it was beaten with the ugly stick, so I'd be tempted to take it over the Porsche.

    While the RR Sport is cool, I'd pick the Cayenne...

    i worked with all 3 brands at dealerships. the cayenne is more reliable than the range rover or the bmtroubleyoo.

    Range Rover Sport. Drive both, and you'll agree.

    The Range Rover can offroad better, handle as well, accelerate as well, is rarer, and does not make you look like a 'wannabe'. Oh, and its damn sexier.

    Probably just the standard Range Rover.

    SUVs are not supposed to be sporty.

    Well done. You win the prize for most inspired contribution to decision making, with a crass generalisation I've seen today.

    I would definitely take the RR Sport. I wish you could get the orange color in the HSE version. As soon as I saw the RR Sport, I fell in love with it.

    The BMW X5 4.8is is beautiful as well. I like it more than the RR Sport (of course I'm a little bias). Also, the design will soon be changing.

    In terms of ride quality, acceleration, and all that, I have no idea. I have yet to drive either one of them
