I have to admit, it looks nice though I wish the styling was a bit more radical still. Like the Evoque.

The front looks to small to the rest of the glass house, looks like 2 cars welded together

UPDATED - 14th August

It gets a new aluminum body as well as aluminum front and rear chassis structures. The Range Rover also gains is 4.7 inches of rear legroom, new off-roading software, and an updated air suspension system. In the weight department it loses around 300 - 400kg depending on spec (my guesstimate based on reports of circa 400kg and 700lbs from various sources).

Oh yes. Very much want one, even though the interior electronics look exactly the same as the (much cheaper) Evoque.

Might just be the best car in the world.

Hmmmm the current one was groundbreaking when released, with the designer quoting 30's speedboat inspirations. This one leaves me feeling a little flat. I think it looks bland at the front and generally all over.
The Evoque is radical so was hoping that creativity would flow on...

Opportunity missed I think.

I prefer the looks of the current one. (Interior and exterior.)

It looks good, and I expect when we see it on the road it will look even better. These images make it look small. It won't be.

I know it won't but it would be great if it did have that big red emergency stop button on the centre console.

It will no doubt sell well in the Far East and the Gulf.
So I'll not be buying one.
I used to work for L/R and I wish Tata well. But they are fast becoming bling.

They've always been ostentatious. A Rangey with big chrome wheels, custom leather and tints will always look bling. Pick one in a subtle colour with sensible wheels and they look rather stately. This is a debate we've settled before here on PH though.

The Toyota Landcruiser sells well in the far east and the gulf, I guess for that reason you won't be buying one of those either. rolleyes

Fairly nice and understated IMO. Not as brash as the Evoque.

To me it looks not much different to a 1971 Range Rover.

Have JLR gone backwards?
