    L405 or L494

    I am considering to get a full fat RR, next time, instead of a Sport.

    Why did you guys opt for Sports and not the full fat model? When I look at the trim levels people are getting on the forum I don't really think price is the major decision point.

    Folks, how about using proper model terms instead of that "full fat" rubbish.

    I too would go full size but I like to have my vehicles in the garage and the the larger model won't fit the office parking garage and would be tight at home.

    Although they don’t look it, the Full size and sport are the exact same width.

    It's actually 4.8". It's 196.8" for the regular wheelbase full-size RR vs. 192" for the RRS.

    re: L405 or L494

    I got the number from the Italian brochure (2015), RR 499.87cm VS 485.50cm= 14.37cm=5.65" and I round them to 6".
    Maybe the USA brochure have a diff size...

    I looked on the JRL TMQ (Transport Quality Manual)for USA market and for the L405 SWB 4999mm and for the L494 4850mm. For the wheelbase the L494 in 1mm longer.
    You are free to translate that in inches...

    US brochures for both vehicles for 2019 shows 196.8" for L405 and 192" for L494. Feel free to translate back to metric.

    re: L405 or L494

    Maybe the 2018 model get 1" increase.

    All technical data sheets for L494 (2014-2017) show 4850mm=190.94", these are much reliable than a brochure in my point of view.

    re: L405 or L494

    For the price I paid ($90k) in 2015, I could have gotten the L494 SCV8 with a few options or a very basic L405, not even HSE. I decided to go for the more fun route as it was my first LR product.

    For the next go-round, I will likely go full size and either stretch to a nice HSE or get the faster engine with a few options.

    Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar, Range Rover Evoque. It's easy. So the thread title, correctly: Range Rover or Range Rover Sport?

    Got it, thank you! I'm still learning all of this myself, as this is my first. And I think, from a layman's observation, it makes it even tougher to understand because they all say Range Rover across the hood and tailgate. I have never really known what to call the big one's either, so for sake of argument, when my wife and I talk about it, I keep telling her I want a "big dog." Because if I were to tell her I want a Range Rover, she'd tell me I already have one. And for what I just paid for my RRS, I could've made a "big dog" happen!
