L322 vs L405 (again no doubt)

This has probably been discussed many times before but want to see other peoples views.
I own a 2011 TDV8 L322. Good spec. RSE, Surround Cameras, 4 zone climate, heated cooled seats etc etc. The equivalent spec L405 would easily be triple the cost.
That aside I have spent quite a lot of time driving an L405 recently, albeit the SDV6 variant.
Is it just me that feels the later generation of Land Rovers feel cheaper inside?
The 405 certainly feels more modern inside, the L322 still has many components from 2002.
The suspension on the 405 feels a more refined. Takes bumps better. On smooth roads the difference is negligible.
But overall it doesn't feel as premium as a late L322. Even something as simple as the Start Stop button.
I prefer the look of the 405 but the feel of the 322.

Completely disagree lol..

The interior on my L405 is far superior to my L322, the plastic centre console on the L322 is dreadful IMO not to say I don’t love them though.. Land Rover Range Rover: 2014 SDV8 Vogue SE

Got to say my 2016MY 405 is much better inside than my 2010MY 322 was. Both VSE spec, but the 405 has nicer finishes to the ‘hard’ surfaces. Semi aniline leather on seats is pretty much identical but everything else is better.

I usually say the L405 is a better car than the L322 - the L322 is a better 'Range Rover' than the 405.

I have owned both generations (2012 L322 VSE and 405 V to compare apples with apples) plus various Vogue/VSE since 2006 and still prefer my 322s. l=Oo\________/oO=l l:OolΞΞΞΞΞΞΞloO:l

I’m sure if I was to try a late 405 I would change my mind. But considering the price difference between a late 322 and early 405 I’m still in the 322 camp.

I would quite like a late 405 interior in an L322 body, to me the best looking. Range Rover 4.2 Supercharged 2006

Like the chunky and solid feel of the 322...and the technology of the 405

If i had a choice of being given one, I’d go for the 405... but because I have to pay for one, I think the 322 better value

I was always wary of older JLR vehicles, but after joining this forum and seeing the constant stream of issues, an L322 terrifies me! Laughing MY19 SDV8 Autobiography

I'm not saying anything, don't want to tempt fate! At least it's in warranty, although I appreciate that dealers aren't always great at fixing issues when they arise.... MY19 SDV8 Autobiography

Why would you consider changing from a TDV8 to a SDV6? Or would you get an SDV8 if you could get on with the interior? Undercover motorcycling hoodlum!
