Is this really necessary for Land Rover?
There have been rumors circulating online for some time now that the Land Rover company was planning to release its first ever sedan. Yes, this SUV, military and pickup utility manufacturer was planning to bring to their showrooms a sports sedan.
Well, it is not a far fetched idea as Land Rover is part of Jaguar and Jaguar has borrowed from Land Rover a SUV platform and released their Jaguar F-Pace and I-Pace SUV’s quite successfully (in European markets). So, here are some initial shared images of the all new Land Rover sports sedan, which looks very much like the recently updated Jaguar XE sedan.
LAND ROVER SEDAN EXTERIOR DESIGN
The design of this new Land Rover sedan is very much like the current 2020 Jaguar XE sedan which delivers bolder graphics, slimmer, all-LED lights and an even more assertive look.
The front of the car has been given a new look with a revised bumper and a wider grille, providing a more planted appearance. The enhanced grille features a new lattice mesh design with a fuller, curved profile; a visual cue shared with Jaguar XE which highlights the muscularity of the design. Wider and sharper lower apertures create a more technical and purposeful impression, with crisply defined profiles and muscular flowing forms.
The rear of the car has also been redesigned and features a new rear bumper and rear valance which enhances the car’s visual width, giving it a more planted impression while aiding aerodynamic performance.
All-LED headlights underline new Land Rover sedan’s poised, purposeful character. The slimmer lights also have the effect of visually lowering the nose of the car for a more dynamic stance. The signature ‘J’ Blade DRLs create a distinctive look. Darkened surfaces within the lights help to underline the car’s dynamic character.
Slimmer, all-LED tail-lights also contribute to the car’s improved stance. This new Land Rover sedan’s exterior design has been extensively refined to deliver beautiful detailing and a striking, assertive stance.
LAND ROVER SEDAN INTERIOR DESIGN
All current model Land Rovers come with an all-new luxurious and technology-packed interior that delivers more comfort, quality and convenience for all occupants. So, this latest Land Rover sedan cabin will come even more enhanced with greater attention to detail, improved stowage and better passenger comfort.
The beautifully appointed interior will make greater use of soft-touch materials throughout. The redesigned door trims, centre console sides, upper instrument binnacle and top section of the dashboard are all wrapped in premium finishes. Luxurious veneers also extend to the rear cabin.
The premium feel of the interior is heightened by the introduction of the 10-inch Touch Pro Duo infotainment as seen on Jaguar’s all-electric I-PACE. This responsive, intuitive system uses a combination of two HD touchscreens, capacitive sensors and tactile physical controls to operate key vehicle functions.
LAND ROVER SEDAN ENGINES
Customers of this new Land Rover sedan should be able to choose from a focused range of three advanced Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. Delivering acceleration from 0-60mph in 5.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.7 seconds), the 300PS Ingenium petrol engine, with all-wheel drive, is the performance powertrain of choice. With an uprated boosting system and 400Nm of torque, the turbocharged unit’s immediate throttle response ensures an engaging drive and impressive acceleration.
Customers would also be able to choose a 250PS Ingenium petrol engine, while diesel power comes from the efficient 180PS 2.0-litre engine, which produces 430Nm of torque and gives fuel consumption of up to 57.6mpg (from 4.9l/100km).
All engines are available with a choice of rear or all-wheel drive, subject to market availability. The rear wheel drive powertrain delivers trademark Jaguar handling, feel and balance while the advanced all-wheel drive system automatically distributes torque between the front and rear axles depending on the driving style and conditions. This intelligent set-up delivers greater driver confidence on all surfaces and in all conditions while retaining the Land Rover sedan’s exceptional handling characteristics.
More information on this Land Rover sedan will be shared in coming months as we get them.
