While still on the fence – it’s this picture that’s pushing me towards a Range Rover vs. a new Range Rover Sport

Decisions, decisions – It’s like 2004 all over again! 

Extremely impressed with the new Range Rover Sport, so much so that I’m actually considering one.  It does look even better in person, the overly Evoque cues seems to diminish in real life.

But after seeing this image from the 65th Anniversary celebration:

All I see is an Evoque on the left and a Range Rover on the right.  To the point where I have to actually study the vehicle on the left because a somewhat quick glance just looks like an Evoque to me.

Is it just a bad color choice for this image?  Is it the visual proximity to the Range Rover? 

Or is it just a big Evoque?

  • Think of the all-new Sport as the offspring of an all-new Range Rover and an Evoque. That picture doesn’t look like an Evoque to me. The roof doesn’t slope back as sharply and that is more apparent with the proximity of the Range Rover. Plus, the proportions are different (and finally correct for the Sport as Gerry McGovern would reiterate).
    Some of the front and front-quarter views of the Sport make me do a double take of Sport vs. Evoque — but not a profile.
