Range Rover Sport Coupe to take on medium SUV segment

Speculation over a Range Rover Sport Coupe SUV to reach market in 2017.

Rumour has it next year we’ll see Range Rover’s response to the BMW X6 – the Range Rover Sport Coupe.

Based on the Jaguar F-Type’s aluminium chassis, which was also used in the Jaguar F-Pace SUV, and using lightweight aluminium body panels, the Range Rover Sport Coupe is expected to be the lightest and fastest Land Rover badged vehicle, reaching 100km/h in four seconds.

According to Autocar, the SUV coupe will measure in at around 4.7 metres long, putting it between the Range Rover Evoque (4.4 metres) and the Range Rover Sport (4.85 metres).

Given its size, it won’t have a third row, and sources say that it’ll only feature four seats with an optional fifth in the second row.

There’s also talk it may include a pure electric powertrain or a four-cylinder petrol and six-cylinder diesel engine as seen in the F-Pace.

We have an inkling the Range Rover is going to be styled to the nines, but we’ll just have to wait until 2017 to find out.
