    Low profile tyres on a 4WD completely defeats the purpose of owning it.
    Not my cup of tea I'm afraid.

    7 seater

    So, it is a 7 seater - in the LWB version - and the leaked photos were of the RR and not the Sport.

    Edit: this is going to be a big hit on the Eastern Suburbs school run.

    I don't like how the centre console screen just looks stuck on, not properly built in, not bespoke.

    It’s a Range Rover, and like all new Land Rovers it’s very ‘capable’, but it’s only meant to go off road once a year - within warranty in case you need to call Land Rover assist. The low profile tyres are for 99.9% on road performance.

    I wonder how many people that buy this type of 4WD gut stuck on the beach or in the bush because of the low profile tyres fitted as stock.
    This RR should be an amazing 4WD and the buyer should have the option of having decent 4WD tyres/wheels fitted when they buy it instead of having to go down the expensive/tedious path of getting aftermarket boots fitted.

    Land Rovers are no longer designed as bush ready vehicles. If they were they’d have the fundamentals right - high clearance on tall tyres. Todays Land Rovers are designed primarily as urban cruisers with some off road ability for weekend hipsters who want the ‘look’ of adventure.

    It’s bizarre when you stop to think about how the Land Rover brand is actually destroying itself through embracing a weird elitist style over substance design philosophy and when it comes to adventure capability it’s all about electric gizmo wizardry that less than 10% of their buyers will ever use! (not to mention Land Rovers self immolation in terms of ditching its status as the originary icon of the pragmatic classless working 4x4).

    So many design awards for vehicles no longer fit for purpose! It says a lot about the capitulation into hipster urbanity by both the designers and the judges!

    Why is it no longer fit for purpose? A new range rover is just as fit as and old range rover.

    You can take an Old range rover pretty much anywhere, This new one wouldn't survive half an hour on the gib River road.
    As a suburban run around it it just fine But ANY track that requires some clearance and traction is out of the question.

    "Hipsters" don't buy these. Hipsters are 20-somethings with ironic beards and convoluted coffee orders. New Range Rovers are bought by people with successful private or family businesses, property developers, people in the racehorse industry, surgeons or other medical specialists, or partners in law or accounting firms who are a bit showier than their colleagues. Maybe some old money will buy them, but definitely the less flash looking versions.

    Edit: and unless something's changed, it will still have almost 30cm of ground clearance which is way more than any other 4WD has as standard.
