Range Rover targets BMW X6 with new model
A new Range Rover, bigger than the Evoque and with coupe styling may soon be rolled out by Land Rover.
Recent spy photographs taken in Scotland show a longer version of the Range Rover Evoque code-named L560, Auto News reported on Wednesday.
The vehicle, referred to as Evoque Plus, would fall below the Range Rover Sport and could be called the Range Rover Sport Coupe.
Design cues from one of Land Rover’s corporate siblings, the Jaguar F-Pace, which is based on the aluminum-intensive architecture underlying the XF and XE sedans, can also be seen in the photos. The new Range Rover will be based on the same architecture as the F-Pace.
Land Rover is following BMW and Mercedes-Benz in marketing sporty crossovers.
Land Rover has incorporated a lower ride and wider stance like those of the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe.
Media reports say the vehicle will have a sporty, tarmac-focused configuration with little regard for off-road prowess.
The cabin is expected to be more intimate — resembling a cockpit — than current Range Rovers’ cabins.
