The Range Rover Evoque hasn’t even hit the market yet, according to a report from UK’s Autocar, Land Rover’s people are debating whether or not to add a bigger version to its line-up, which at the time being, consists of a "coupe-ish" 3-door model and a more practical 5-door variant.
If the British company goes ahead with this plan, it would allow them to bridge the gap that exists in the marque’s (Range Rover, not Land Rover) range between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport.
This “Grand” Evoque would bebased on the LR-MS platform that underpins the other two versions, stretched by around 300 mm to provide more ample space for passengers as well as a larger boot and may also spawn a (long-rumored) Jaguar SUV.
The design is expected to retain most of the Evoque’s rather striking characteristics, since Land Rover’s designers believe that there is a market for sporty and distinctive, yet not overtly aggressive (such as BMW’s X6) large SUVs.
As for the drivetrains, the logical choice would be to keep the Evoque’s 2.0-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engines, in front and four-wheel drive configurations.
