Landing at the wheel of Range Rover is commander’s: you sit high, and look far. However, because of this rider taller than 180 cm complain on too low hanging ceiling.

The driver for the brand traditionally sits close to the door to when driving on the road could look out the window to observe the front wheels. And what is convenient window sill – wide and flat, and thanks to the high seating position it perfectly serves as an armrest. The chair itself is dense, well distributes the load.

After evaluation of interior decoration it can be stated that any of the competitors does not deserve criticism. With great passion we have, of course, evaluated Mercedes-Benz. The design of its interior, as well as appearance, became respectable. Inside ML (in accordance with the company’s well-known slogan “Welcome Home”), the driver and passengers feel most comfortable. Finishing materials are expensive. In particular, the plastic (of course, almost all mild) is clearly better than the previous generation. Smart devices look and please the eye at night soft lighting around the perimeter of the front panel and doors.

The interface Range Rover Sport, like kindred brands Jaguar, causes irritation of “perverts” control, “slowpoke” and mediocre graphics. But the rest of the interior of British SUV generates positive emotions. Unique English charm, expensive leather and imposing, under the mighty man’s hand controls.
