Autocar reports that Land Rover may be working to flesh out its lineup with a new, larger version of the Range Rover Evoque. The publication claims executives are interested in building a model to split the difference between the current Evoque and Range Rover Sport models as the latter vehicle moves farther up market in the coming years.

The report explains that the new middle child will wear styling borrowed from its smaller sibling, though the chassis will likely be stretched by just under a full foot, with half of the extra span landing in the wheelbase. The rest of the length is said to go to the rear overhang so that the vehicle can accommodate both a third row and more cargo area.

If realized, the vehicle will be powered by a range of four-cylinder options, though a hybrid variant is also expected to rear its head at some point in the future as well. So, when will we see this grandaddy Evoque? Autocar says the vehicle won't land until 2015 at the earliest.

      I'm sorry but this is ruining the Range Rover brand at all levels. It shouldn't exist. It looks like a more expensive Kia without the hampsters.

        Land Rover needs to sell vehicles. And if making them gorgeous AND capable. Who cares? I'd be more worried about the gaudy Autobiography they launched than the Evoque and larger sibling. It screams I've got more money than taste. If it was not capable off road, I would agree, but until they cross that bridge, I'd take an Evoque any day of the week. http://www.netcarshow.com/land_rover/2012-range_rover_autobiography_ultimate_edition/1600x1200/wallpaper_01.htm

          The autobiography is an over priced trim level on a range rover which has set records for off road many many times.. sooo.. this really doesnt make any sense above...

      I love Land Rovers (Except for the RR Sport). I know some will disagree strongly with me here, but the Sport model RR dilutes the Range Rover nameplate. It barely offloads, and even the supercharged version is barely even fast, even with a full 400HP. Land Rovers were always her Majesty's (And no, I'm not located in Europe anywhere either, so don't accuse me of being biased) preferred off roader of choice. The thing I do like about the Evoque however, is that, for it's size, it's fairly capable off road, and it brings the Land Rover design firmly into the 21st Century. IMO, the Freelander should be replaced by the Evoque, and the Range Rover Sport replaced by an Evoque on RR architecture, with a 500HP V8, and aluminum skin. That way, its not only capable off road, but fast as well, and good looking to boot. Preferably it wouldn't also leech off the Marques iconic RR nameplate. The Range Rover HSE in a nice brown is still my dream winter car though - so I clearly think a lot about them. I hope no one is offended by my thoughts or opinions.

        You should watch this if you don't think the Range Rover Sport can go off road well. It will change your mind about them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWYH1Qs3JAc&feature=channel_video_title

        You must have missed the 2011 RR Supercharged, what with its 510 HP 5.0 V8...

      This thing is TINY in person. Saw it at a press party in NYC and the rep was defending it saying "this is an "urban" vehicle, we built it for people like you"....at which point I had to remind here NO ONE in NY would hop in their tiny suv to travel around the city - that's what Cabs are for. And those who do have $ and live in NYC and travel outside aren't going to buy this tiny thing - they want the RANGE ROVER. This is a prime example of a gimmick that has no real market that wants it - some hacks probably pulled some consumer research insights the wrong way and ended up making this car

      I actually like the Evoque. My only issue with it is the ultra pill-box effect applied to the greenhouse. It sort of reminds me of the last generation Chrysler 300 on steroids, or maybe that old man I saw at the train station with his pants pulled up way too high. Hopefully those small rear windows don't become a safety issue, trapping back seat passengers in an emergency.

      I still think this is the best looking LR/RR out there even if the production model has been diluted a bit from the concept. Hope the reliability holds up.
