"Everybody loves my Sport - and so do I"4.0 starson by denver z
Pros: Great styling inside and out; extremely comfortable seats; fantastic ride
Cons: Crummy display for stereo; can't fold down rear seats without moving front seats way forward
Summary: I've had the non-supercharged version of this vehicle for about 3 months now. Overall I'm satisfied with my purchase and I've been blown away by the attention this car gets on the road. People of all ages have told me how awesome it looks, and I must admit the looks sold me on it as much as anything. The dealer equipped it with a Strut chrome grille package which really makes it pop and is much better looking than the factory grille.
The car has a beautiful interior and the leather seats are extremely plush and comfortable. The touchscreen navigation is decent but not great - everything is disabled when you're moving so you can't even get navigation help from a front-seat passenger while you're moving. It does have a voice recognition system but I can't get it to understand anything I say. I have a friend with a British accent and it understands him perfectly - I guess that tells you something.
I got mine with Sirius satellite radio which I love, but the tuner is a major disappointment. Instead of integrating it into the navigation display, Land Rover decided to use a clunky, 1980's style head that displays very little information and is clumsy to use when you have 200 channels at your disposal.
The car includes Bluetooth and it works reasonably well with my cell phone. There have been a few glitches here and there but I don't know if they're caused by the car or my phone.
One disappointment is that I can't fold down the rear seats without moving the front seats forward about 4". And I'm not even very tall! My old Mercedes ML 430 didn't have this problem.
The ride is fantastic. A little mushy in the turns but that's hardly surprising with such a tall, heavy vehicle. Acceleration is very good, even over our high mountain passes here in Colorado.
Overall I'm very happy with my Range Rover Sport and I can't wait to see how it behaves in the snow.
