2011 Range Rover Sport HSE or X6?

Looking to purchase an additional vehicle. Any thoughts on a Range Rover Sport HSE (LUX) or X6?

If you plan on ever taking it offroad...anywhere...then the RR.

If not, or if you care one iota about reliablity and maintenance expenses, X6.

Nice. Yeah I think the RR is pretty good based off the research I have done.

the refresh to the RR sport (2011 +, IIRC) was a HUGE upgrade (to the interior, the powertrain and the suspension). it drives like a totally different car than the 2010 and previous models. we've had three in our family, and the new one is considerably nicer. I haven't driven an X6 though, so I can't comment there, but the RR is unbeatable for style, and the new model rides and drives like a dream.

My research says quite the opposite.... previous iterations of the RR had some really stupid issues (leaky windows) But the new one is supposed to be VERY reliable.

How can you know it's reliable when it's brand new?

I just had this conversation with my business partner a couple weeks ago. He got rid of his RR and RR Sport last year because they spent more time in the shop than was worth.

Edit: After doing some quick research it doesn't appear any better?

If you enjoy cars that will get you from A-B 12% of the time. Go for the RR.

Please for the love of Mike consider the real Range Rover, not the sport.

We had many current Range Rovers in my family. We currently have the RR HSE. My Father has the RR Sport. Believe me, while there is a new update on the RR Sport, its still a serious rip-off. Let me count the ways:

- Reliability. BMW isn't the best, but believe me RR makes BMW seem like a Toyota in comparison. Take it from someone who been at the RR dealership too many times.
- Resale value. RR don't hold up their resale that well. Check autotrader on what a 08 RR Sport will cost now compared to what you pay for new. Heck I see RR Supercharged (a 100k + brand new) selling for 35k-40k.
- This is the big one: the RR Sport is basically the LR3/LR4 but with a better looking shell. The car is the same underneath mechanically. And while I can't judge the new year model, I can tell you from past experience that the past LR3/LR4 and RR Sport all drove like ass. My Father can't even drive our RR cause he can't believe how crappy his RR Sport drives in comparison. And the RR isn't no BMW in steering/driving dynamics either.

Seriously. Unless you really value the luxury factor and the prestige factor, get the X6. Its faster, handles better, I think is a tie in looks, and will be more rare on the streets then the RR Sport. Please, seriously, don't get a RR Sport.
