2012 Range Rover Will Have Evoque Styling
The Evoque has a chance of becoming Land Rover’s best seller, and it’s only natural that the rest of the range should follow on its design path. According to Autocar, there’s a new 2012 Range Rover will arrive arrive on the scene with a design that’s heavily influenced by the Evoque, according to the company’s head of design Gerry McGovern.
We’re not complaining, as this recent trend of putting LEDs on everything will only cater to rappers and sports celebrities.
“There are aspects of the design that will be key. Range Rovers usually have a level window line and the body’s side and glass areas are equal. We’ve got rid of both on the Evoque, but we’ve still got the signature floating roof,” said McGovern in an interview.
In addition to a the changes made to the fascia, both the windscreen and the rear window will have a steeper angle, contributing to the sportier feel of the new Range Rover.
The interior will also move away from the usual rugged mix to the Evoque’s luxury trim. Land Rover has also pledged to create more room insider, especially for rear passengers.
The engine range has just been revised for a number of the British company’s models, but further fuel-saving measures will arrive, primarily in the form a major weight reduction. The 2012 Range Rover will have a number of panels constructed from lightweight alloys, leading to a total reduction of about 450 kg (992 pounds) reducing. Yes folks, the off-roader will come close to the 2,200 kg (4,850 pounds) mark.
