Plus the RR range drives nowhere near as well as any of the BMW SUVs. I really, really wanted to like the RRS sport when I had one for 10 days but I hated it and it convinced me to go for the X5.

He has no idea what he's talking about. He lost me when he said he thinks eco pro feels faster than sport+

Thumbs up Here's a great review of G05 from a different perspective



Great practical review from Andie. She does a great job of going more indepth on features not explored in other videos such as:
* How hot do those cup holders get? How cold is cold for those same cup holders?
* How comfortable is the ride for pets (e.g. a big dog)
* Rear interior vents allocation
* Split tailgate open/closing

Thumbs up

One of the best "real world" videos on G05's actual fuel economy. My favourite part of this video is that the results is provided in both Litres and MPG.

Amazing!

This guy is a joke; lost all credibility when he started ragging on the "small seats". My only regret is I gave him a view for his channel.

Yeah...so much is just wrong with his review. Altho...its personal opinion.

All my family is in Dallas - I know EXACTLY the roads he's on. Dallas has some of the shittiest roads in the nation. Dallas North Tollway is an exception. Cement with lines that always create tramlining. When I was there with my 600hp S6 and GT-R - such a waste of automotive engineering. The only measure of a car there is str8 line performance. Who needs adaptive suspension in a flat state where the only direction is straight ahead? LOL

I regret the view, as well.

Steering feel 6 vs 8 on Q7? Really?
And with 5 points on Q7 in acceleration how does it get lower score on performance? I am going back to X5 from Q7 because it feels big and doesn't take corners well at all. I used to be able to take curves much better and planted on my F15 compared to 2018 Q7.

One huge benefit on Q7 is 2nd row, it's huge, it's like limo big, with sliding and reclining 2nd row, soft comfortable seats, if you want comfort for your passengers, I don't think anything can beat Q7. BMW always had less padding than others on 2nd row.

I'm sure I'll get flamed for this, and I can't speak for the RRS, but my wife's car is a 2018 Velar P380 First Edition, and I just bought a 2020 M50i. The Velar is the superior handling vehicle. No doubt being smaller, lighter, and lower has a lot to do with this. The M50i has it beat on power, but I prefer the driving experience of the Range Rover. The body roll on the M50i is too great, and the steering is too numb.

Yeah but thats an apples and oranges comparison as like you say the Velar is lower and smaller. Compare the top end non-SVR V8 RRS to the M50i (fair comparison) and you've got a wobbling water bed of a car vs the M50i.

F15 to G05

Iíve been lucky enough to get into the G05 and Iím really impressed by the improvements - I have a question about the sports exhaust of the M50d though - can the active sound be enabled all the time or can this be coded?

Agree. I saw that review a couple of days ago. Not sure how many vehicles he's actually driven...comes across as being extremely uninformed.

Go for the 45e if you want to be more environmental and get tax credit. It is also a more comfortable ride with the air suspension and overall interior space.
I tested the X3 and it was really not as nice a ride as the X5 - In my opinion, I don't like the Coupť SUV, kinda defeat the purpose of an SUV (talking about the X4/6).
