I'm thinking of buying a DS, but haven't been able to compare the exterior body look of an SE model vs an HSE one. I was curious, as I know most other car models have their lower models have a more basic look to them and the higher the model have a much better body design. I'm not talking about the extra accessories, but rather the actual body design itself. Does anyone know if there is a body difference between the two? Or is it the exact same? Thank you!

HSE has HID headlights, SE has halogen.
HSE has fog lights, SE doesn't.
HSE has panoramic moonroof SE doesn't.
Anther difference is leather seats vs partial leather.

There are some minor trim differences that you can tell which model is which - look for a PDF on line from Land Rover - they show off 4 different model trims - Pure, SE, HSE, HSE Luxury (not all 4 are available in the USA), they are available in other countries.

The trim level difference between the SE and HSE here in the US is minor but the body looks identical. The only major exterior noticeable difference between HSE Luxury and others are the rear badge.

I changed out my HSE silver SPORT rear badge to black SPORT HSE badge on the rear - see my avatar....

Bodies are identical, I have watched the DS being built at Halewood, and as a supply of coating can say we have never had to do various options for different models as far as the body goes.

Sheetmetal is the same, but as option differences are added, the bumper covers are different as in the fog lamp / non fog lamp and roof differences.
