Hello all. I've been looking at full size Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, and Cayenne for a couple of weeks. It'll be replacing Audi Q7. Before that I've owned BMW X5. I'm leaning towards full size RR because it's just much roomier and comfortable than the others. I test drove 07 RR HSE the other day. There is some body roll and wind noise, but otherwise the cabin is very comfortable and it was a pleasure to drive it.
I noticed the interior of 07 was significantly changed from 06. To me the interior of 06 looks just fine to me, as long as I'm not missing out on any of the new features that I want. I've identified several differences and I'd like to get some opinions on them.
- Terrain Response. This is probably the largest difference between 06 and 07. It looks pretty cool and sophisticated, but I'm wondering if it's really useful? I understand there are settings for sand / mud / snow, etc, but what exactly does each setting do? Is it just a preset of ride height and high / lo range setting, or is it more substantial?
- Luxury package. I understand 07 Luxury package includes heated / cooled seats and leather dash. From my limited experience with 06 I don't think I've seen any with leather dash. Does 06 Luxury package also include leather dash or no?
- Luxury seats. The luxury seats that come with Luxury package look different for 06 and 07. Luxury seats for 06 look very similar to old luxury seats from BMW 7. While I found the luxury seats on 07 very comfortable, I'm not a big fan of BMW seats. How do the seats compare between 06 and 07?
Also what do you think about SC vs HSE? Is the difference between SC and HSE the same on 06 and 07? I don't know if I need extra power but I understand SC has firmer suspension that I might like. Also I like the fact that Luxury package is standard in SC.
