I really like what they have done with this! I know a lot of people aren't crazy about the look of the car but give it time it will grow on you and you will love it. I actually may pick one of these up for my second car.

The more I look at this car, the more I like it. It's been quite some time since last time I was 100% completely convinced about the design of a new car...this is the first time in quite some time...

when i saw the first leaked pictures, i thought this thing was going to look better.It does not. I am not sure what to make of it. Interior is nice. the direct front view is nice but thats about it for me.

So the lower tailgate doesn't open by itself like in the Range Rover? If you are going to copy Range Rover's idea, do it properly at least.

+1. I think the pictures out there so far don't do it justice. These videos, I suspect, show a more realistic view of what it looks like in person and they look way better than pictures with bad angles making things (like the rear windshield deflector) look worse than they are.

Maybe the RR has a power lower tailgate?

I wonder how many people realize that BMW used to own Land Rover, and that the 2002 Range Rover shared quite a bit with the e53 and e39. I imagine that BMW felt no qualms about appropriating desirable features to use on the e53, and were certainly within their rights to do so!

I obviously liked the 50 M-Sport because its the nicest model they have. But seeing the 30 stock (luxury or sport line, whatever) I'm still not liking the back. The front is a huge improvement but the butt looks like a over inflated 5 series GT. From a purely styling point of view, I can't imagine why ANYONE would buy this over a 2014 Range Rover Sport.

Is it just me or is the exhaust louder than one would have expected? I mean I am not complaining at all. Just a surprise.

I feel like this car is total disaster. Horrible looking exterior and nice interior. Even LED front lights looks worse than regular Xenos. The worse is side view. Looks sorta like minivan. What happen to innovative designs. Bangle come back!

Boring, very boring looking truck. Merc ML and new x5 are the worse looking lux suvs on the road.

I guess I have to see one in person to be sure. So far I am disappointing. I need a truck bad, so its back to e70 sport 3.5D at discount price.

Lol no. Where in the video is the lower part of the tailgate opening by itself? The upper part is powered, not the lower part. So this whole thing about swinging your foot/leg below the rear bumper to open the trunk automatically so you don't have to lay your precious groceries on the ground to open the trunk yourself, which a lot of people went gaga about...isn't executed properly here.

Not to worry, the foot thing doesn't work very well anyway
