Penned under the gaze of Land Rover's long-time design boss, Gerry McGovern, this is an all-new Range Rover, taking cues from the Evoque inside and out, but still definitely a 'Rangey'
Amazingly, the new car is up to 420kg lighter, a figure attributable to the new aluminium monocoque replacing the steel of the old car.
A new air-suspension design will retain the traditional plush ride but also keep the big SUV flat through the corners.
There's a range of three engines available, two diesels in V6 (190kW) and V8 (250kW) versions and a supercharged V8 petrol good for 375kW and a 0-100km/h time of 5.4 seconds.
The diesels have come in for some eco-engineering - including stop-start and regenerative braking - with fuel consumption cut by up to 22 percent, the TDV6 delivering a claimed 7.5l/100km.
All three engines are offered with the ZF eight-speed automatic found in the Jaguars XF and XJ.
A hybrid is expected later in 2013, packing a 3.0 litre turbodiesel, lithium battery pack and the eight-speed transmission. The CO2 target output is 169g/km.
