One of Range Rover’s upcoming vehicles will break fresh ground by moving the brand into even sportier dimension. The vehicle in question, codenamed L560, could be named Range Rover Sport Coupe and will take on the likes of the BMW X6.
The Sport Coupe, in all probability, would set new standards for Range Rover’s design, interior and on-road dynamics. A lot of the extra agility and sportier handling will be down to the F-Pace’s suspension bits and lightweight aluminium body. At around 4.7m long, this new model will be a little shorter than the X6 and the Mercedes GLE Coupe and in fact, will fit between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport.
Under the hood, the Range Rover Sport Coupe will feature a range of six and eight-cylinder diesel and petrol engines, however, it’s not yet clear if it will get the four-cylinder engines from the Jaguar F-Pace. It could also feature the all-electric powertrain that Jaguar Land-Rover is developing for its I-Pace electric vehicle. Expect this new offering to go official sometime next year and take on the BMW X6 and the Mercedes GLE Coupe.
