Range Rover are expected to add a new model to the Range Rover family next year. Currently referred to as the L560 it’s expected that it will emerge as the Range Rover Sport Coupé.
The Coupé looks set to rival the Audi Q8 SUV, BMW X6 and Mercedes GLE Coupé and it’s reported that it will use the same suspension and chassis as the Jaguar F-Pace and will come with a lightweight aluminum body.
At 4.7 meters long, it will be slightly shorter than BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé (4.9m), slotting between the Evoque, which is 4.4 meters long, and the 4.85 meter Range Rover Sport.
It’s not known at the time whether the four-pot mills available on the Jaguar F-Pace will make it to the new Range Rover. However, British magazine Autocar believes that an all-electric powertrain might eventually be added, made out of six and 8-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. A hybrid powertrain is also likely, possibly based on the SDV6 HEV in the Range Rover Sport, while the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 is available for a range-topping SVR.
