    Not bad, i don't like the current trend of wrapping the headlights and taillights into the quarter panels by a majority of the automakers tho

    Not a fan of SUVs, but it's not a bad modernisation.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    Land Rovers have always been good to me, although I must agree with Cobrafan427 - those curved lights are my least favourite details here. It also looks bigger, almost MB GL size from these pictures. And an all-aluminium monocoque? It must have lost its off-road capabilities, it seems.

    They claim it has retained its off-roading prowess. I guess we'll have to wait for a review to be sure.
    Life's too short to drive bad cars.

    Old Rangey was already taller and wider than the GL-Class and only marginally shorter than it. The Sport feels imposing from the inside (as a passenger) I can only imagine that the proper Range Rover is even more mindboggling...

    I hope it doesn't lose its go anywhere ability, because this would make it no better than an X5 or a Q7.

    It's off terrain capabilities will be top notch. It's there trademark. i wouldn't worry about that.
    And it even looks bigger than the previous, and is 420 kg lighter !

    Loss of weight is a good thing for every modern car. 420 Kg is exceptionally good for this type of car.

    Still the highest hopes regarding any Range Rover is that it won't break down right away

    Looks great except for those rear lights. I don't mind the front ones curved, but I do mind the rear ones.
