The all-new Evoque compact SUV is barely upon us and already Land Rover is considering a fourth model for its upmarket Range Rover brand, according to reports out of Europe this week.
A report by Britain's Autocar magazine claims that 'well-placed sources' have revealed plans for a new model that will fill the tiny gap between the upcoming Evoque and the Range Rover Sport, previously the smaller offering in the two-model Range Rover line-up.
Sized and priced between the two, the new model would reportedly be built on a stretched version of the same platform used by the Sport and the Land Rover Freelander 2, possibly as a (much-needed) seven-seat model.

The Evoque, which was unveiled as a two-door model but has also been spied testing as a five-door variant, will be built thanks to a combined investment by Land Rover owner Tata, and the UK Government.
With the brand's newest model still some months away from its European market debut, the reported fourth model would likely be at least two to three years away.
