    Default Car Buying

    So. I'm looking to buy a new car, was initially going to go for a Tesla but the Model S price is just too much with the extras.

    My two choices are Range Rover Sport or Porsche Cayenne, probably going to go for a 2017 model, keep the price down a little.

    Right now the Porsche is edging it because of its reliability, I think RR consistently come bottom or near bottom of user rankings.

    What do you reckon, thoughts, alternatives, suggestions?

    RR Sport will likely go wrong.
    Porsche Cayenne is for people with more money than taste. The Toureg is the same car but without a petrol option. Ditto for the Q7. Go VW IMO unlss you really want a petrol.

    Or go a full RR Vogue. If cost is an issue go for a little older. If you do like Petrol the 5L supercharged V8 is a monster.

    Do not buy anything from LandRover - their reliability is tulipe and they're massively overpriced.

    Go for the Urus, FFS, are you a contractor or not!

    This really does sound like me.

    I've had a toureg in the past and I know they have improved. But it's also about a statement and in the end if Im honest there is an element of it being a vanity buy.

    from the days when Nuvolari was racing, Maserati has been a very evocative name for me, even more so than Ferrari.

    The Levante is a vehicle with serious presence.
