Range Rover's new Evoque range could soon get a longer seven-seat version to bridge the gap between the five-door and the larger Range Rover Sport, according to reports out of Europe this week.

It is already known that the Evoque's sporty styling will influence the design of the company's new line-up, but a demand for smaller, less 'full-sized' family SUV options has reportedly led to plans for a 'Grand' Evoque.

Reports out of the UK point to a 300mm longer body than the regular five-door Evoque (itself only 10mm longer than the three-door), allowing for a third row and a seven-seat layout.

A regular five-seat version of the larger Grand Evoque may also be offered, differentiating itself from the current lifestyle-focused five-door by adding more rear leg- and head-room, and increased rear storage space.

It is also believed that the Grand Evoque will wear the same front-end styling as the current model, but will take on a taller and more practical shape towards the rear.

Britain's Autocar says the Grand Evoque will make its debut in 2015, with production to take place in the UK alongside the regular Evoque, the Land Rover Freelander, and a new small sedan from Jaguar.

The Evoque has proved a strong seller for the brand in Australia, with 93 sold in October - compared to 146 for the Range Rover Sport and 19 for the full-size Range Rover.
