My dealer has a demo in, the motoring press are giving the most powerful petrol the thumps up but they still say that cheap finishes are still highly visible despite a general increase in quality of the interior. They all seem to be of the same opinion about the prices though..........

Has anybody had a test drive or ordered one yet? I’m really disappointed that there isn’t even the light hybrid available at launch let alone the PHEV or BEV versions which “might” arrive late 2020..... come on JLR you need to wake up to the fact that there is a market for these versions, - people want them but are buying elsewhere because you don’t offer a small PHEV and the RRS version is just massively toomexpendive at £81000 for an HSE dynamic version......

Now driving a 2018MY Mini Countryman Cooper S E All4 PHEV, alongside my 1996 Defender
TDi300. I hope to be back in a new Land Rover in late 2019 or early 2020 but am having a short break
To try something different

Thats interesting about the press finding some cheap finishes still (i wonder if its still below waist level where people don't generally touch), when initial general interior quality reports were higher overall.
I've ordered the latest "Autocar" and "Autoexpress" to read up on their tests...(This is probably where you read it).
I guess i'll have to wait till the cars actually land in Australia, to really test it myself and see. Will be interesting for sure, as i put a lot of attention and emphasis on interior quality, fit & finish.
