As much as we'd like to think that Land Rover is still the same rough-and-rugged off-road brand it always was, truth is, the British automaker is becoming more of a style icon these days. Just look at the new Range Rover Evoque – a sleek little crossover that's been seen posing with Victoria Beckham on more than one occasion. (She was the 'posh' Spice Girl, you know.)

Autocar reports that the next-generation of Land Rover's flagship Range Rover could move away from its signature boxy styling and transform into something a bit more rakish. The British magazine obtained spy photos of an early Range Rover mule that clearly shows a substantially more sloped roofline, pointing towards a dramatic new styling direction.

Speaking to Autocar earlier this year, Land Rover design head, Gerry McGovern, said that "the Evoque will inform the future Range Rover attitude," adding that, "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."

The next-generation Range Rover will also have a stronger emphasis on rear legroom, ride, handling and – surprise, surprise – fuel economy. Expect the Range Rover to drop a bit of weight in its redesign, too.

      Evoque-ize the RR Sport? Yes. Evoque-ize the regular Range Rover? Hell no.

      Redesigning the Range Rover will be one of the most difficult tasks of the 21st century - especially the rear end. It's so simple and timeless that you would probably get massive negative response with most new design ideas - the current one is getting a bit old on the other hand. Can't wait to see how LR will solve this problem.

      Part of what makes the Evoque cool is that in addition to looking good, it looks completely distinct from the rest of the Land Rover lineup. Molding the original Range Rover with a similar styling direction lessens the impact of the Evoque and does a huge disservice to the legacy of a motoring and luxury icon. People but the Range Rover BECAUSE of its look, not in spite of it. This isn't like Jaguar needing a radically different XJ due to poor sales. I would hope Land Rover would know better than to mess with success.

      I thought they created the RR Sport for this sort of idiocy? The number of companies who make a car I am at all interested continue to decrease if this is true. I'm soon going to be down to about one new car I actually like, at least in the US.

      This looks like either the next RR Sport or the so-called Evoque XL that was mentioned a week or two ago. The really BIG DEAL is that the next RR will be 1000 pounds lighter.

      I'm pretty sure the head of design said they gave a survey to find out whether people wanted a revolution or evolution for the next range rover, I think like 90 percent wanted it to maintain it's current looks compared to a new styling.

      I was a bigger fan of the larger eyed RR and LR3, thought they looked more british

        I have 4 Land Rovers from 65 to 08 and I can say the new ones are loads more reliable than the last ones. Actually my DII mostly goes through Bosch sensors and has never really left me stranded...

        I've driven an '04 Freelander over 250,000 miles without any significant problems.

      Now if they could focus as much on increasing reliability as they do styling, they'd have a winner
