So, there's this thing called the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover. But really, that's just what it's called in the realm of automotive websites that need a proper Year, Make and Model to make the 1's and 0's make sense of it. If you know someone who refers to it as a "Land Rover Range Rover," let us know, we'll send them a scone. Really, what we're talking about is the 2018 Range Rover, the literal range-topping model and an ancestor to the SUV that started the whole luxury off-roader craze in the f
Range Rover Evoque
Land Rover is continuing testing of its updated Range Rover Evoque compact luxury crossover, and each time we see it, it has a bit less camouflage. The example shown above has the least yet, amounting mostly just to vinyl wrappings. This allows us to see most of the body without hindrance.
It's set to compete against the upcoming Jaguar E-Pace and BMW X2.
The more powerful engine is the most powerful unit ever offered on either model.
Cars will only debut in production form.

It will sit between the Range Rover Sport and Evoque.
Land Rover reveals the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, designed to look just like the hardtop version but with an insulated fabric roof that folds away in 18 seconds.
Longer is the next Chinese automaker to crank out a terrible knockoff, this one being the Yueling X1 EV. Like the Landwind X7 before it, it takes liberal inspiration from the Range Rover Evoque, but adds BMW badges on the wheel caps.

Ford gives Car and Driver every indication that the new all-wheel-drive system in the Focus RS will be seen in other performance products. And upon closer inspection, C/D notes that AWD system is "almost identical" to the one in the Range Rover Evoque.
Land Rover is recalling over 40,000 of its smaller SUVs over an airbag issue. In the affected vehicles, the front passenger airbag may not deploy because of a problem with the restraint control module, which will be replaced where needed as part of the recall.
With most recalls seemingly affecting mass-market vehicles, it'd be all too easy to assume, consciously or otherwise, that higher-end automobiles never face such issues. But the main reason we don't see the NHTSA recalling more luxury automobiles isn't because of their quality, we'd postulate: it's because of their relative scarcity.
The differentiation between Jaguar and its sister company Land Rover used to be fairly clear: Jaguar makes cars, and Land Rover makes SUVs. But that line is about to get a little blurred.
Jaguar's long-rumored crossover won't be built on the same platform as the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, says the Australian site Car Advice. The future of the new CUV remains uncertain, but if Jaguar does dip its toes into the SUV/crossover pool, though, the new vehicle will likely be a car-based soft roader, lacking (or perhaps more appropriately, not needing) the off-road-engineered chops inherent in Land Rover's small CUV platform.
The Range Rover Evoque has only been on the market for a year or so now, but already Land Rover is introducing a series of enhancements – and they're not just limited to the striking Zanzibar Bronze paint pictured here.
A report in Autocar claims that Jaguar's RS badge and its herd of extra horsepower is walking across the aisle to the Land Rover stable. Autocar sources say the Range Rover Sport and Evoque will get RS designations, the supercharged V8 in the Sport RS getting cranked up to "at least" 542 horsepower, the 2.0-liter EcoBoost in the Evoque RS getting 300.
Despite a report earlier this year stating that a production version of the Range Rover Evoque Convertible was shot down, there have been signs suggesting otherwise recently. Last week, we heard that the fate of this two-door, drop-top SUV could be decided upon soon, but WhatCar? says that the decision has already been made.
From the time when all we had were rumors of a Range Rover Evoque convertible, to the grainy spy shots of said topless SUV in some English alley, to the time it rolled out on the floor of the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, nothing could keep people from asking, "Is this really happening?"
