Land Rover's next-generation Range Rover has been spied testing in Europe this week, offering the most revealing look yet at the new luxury four-wheel-drive.

Expected to make its global debut later this year, the new 'Rangey' will retain much of its boxy styling, while adopting a smoothed-out look inspired by the carmaker's new Evoque small SUV.

“There are aspects of the design that will be key. Range Rovers usually have a level window line and the body’s side and glass areas are equal," Land Rover's Gerry McGovern told Britain's Autocar magazine.

"We’ve got rid of both on the Evoque, but we’ve still got the signature floating roof."

While still camouflaged, these new photos reveal that the all-new Range Rover will feature slimmer headlights, along with the appearance of a lower roof and a rising belt-line.

Reports also point to a significant drop in weight for the new Range Rover, with a new aluminium chassis expected to slash more than 400kg from the new model.

The weight saving comes courtesy a riveted aluminium chassis - similar to the platform underpinning the new Jaguar XJ. The unpainted body shell is expected to weigh about 40 percent less than the current platform.

The new Range Rover's diet should result in a significant improvement to fuel economy, the report claiming fuel consumption could be as low as 7.0 l/100km, bettering many sedans and coming close to the original Hybrid Camry's 6.0 l/100km.

Drivetrain options are expected to carry over from the current line-up, along with the 3.0 litre V6 turbodiesel currently offered with the Jaguar XF and XJ.

Land Rover and Jaguar are also working on a diesel-electric hybrid powertrain, set to debut in the coming year.
