Range Rover is planning to add another model into its family of beauties. This new model will be slotted in between the new Evoque and the Range Rover Sport. This model which will share components with forthcoming Land Rover models, will cost more than the £35k Evoque, but less than the £46k Sport. Encouraged by the reception to the Evoque, the bosses in the company believe that a new model is sure to be a success.

There have been rumors that the new Rover is going to be a seven-seat ‘lifestyle’ vehicle, although other features are not available. But the new vehicle is going to help the firm’s push towards lower average CO2 emissions. However, the new car will have to provide definite variations from the other three Rovers. Even if the rumors are true, do not expect the car to be available any time soon.
