The styling is awful. The rear lights resemble the new Ford's , everything is rounded off, and for $ 120,000 , it doesn't appeal.I much prefer the classic body style they've had for years. And forget about the Evoque. Why do companies take a tried & true brand , and ruin it ?
Evoque is lovely. New RR is a bit awkward looking, and I do see some Ford in it. Ford used to own RR and Jaguar so perhaps the new RR was in development when Ford sold them to Tata.
I think the Evoque is quite nice looking.
The Evogue is amazing. I want one.
Rich people problems.
I read somewhere the same development team that created the new/current Ford Explorer also designed the new RR and it definitely shows in those tail lights.
If you want the best the industry has to offer, buy a pigged out Grand Cherokee at half the price.
[R5] - Thank you. I'm not the only one who noticed. None of my friends see it.
Sorry, nothing coming out of RR now is Ford developed or related. Tata is probably just playing copycat. Their own design teams are pretty bad.
Even old man Toyoda admitted his first car design was stolen from Chevrolet.
I thought the same thing, when Prince William was putting his new baby into the car. The Royal family uses Fords now ?
Not if you want a good car that will hold its value R6. The Grand Cherokee was previously named the worst car of its kind, and while they have improved it since 2006, not enough to make it comparable to a Range Rover.
I'd rather have a VW or Toyota if looking for something comparable at half the price.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around on http://legacy.datalounge.com while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
