Land Rover’s “most dynamic” model landed an update recently, though the changes have a more dramatic influence on the way the Range Rover Sport looks inside than how it drives. Remember 2003’s Range Rover Stormer concept? The sleek, fastback-style 4WD coupe show vehicle was Land Rover’s pointer to its response to the 2002 Porsche Cayenne.If the Range Rover Sport production SUV that materialised a year later didn’t have the same wow factor – looking too much like the flagship Rangie, but with a slightly sloped roof line – the second-generation version of 2013 at least looked sportier.The Range Rover Velar actually has more in common with the Stormer visually, though the good news for Rangie Sport buyers is that the stunning interior from that model one rung down on the line-up has transferred across for a model-year update. That all-new dash fascia, standard on the base S model upwards, is arguably the Sport’s most important … [Read more...] about 2018 Range Rover Sport SE SDV6 review
Land Rover has unveiled the second generation of its popular Range Rover Evoque compact SUV, replacing the current model that has been on sale since 2011. With more than 700,000 units sold worldwide, the Evoque has been a considerable success for the brand – in 2012 and 2013, it made up over a third of Land Rover sales. Perhaps that’s why the brand hasn’t deviated far from the original styling with this model. The new Evoque features the latest version of Land Rover’s corporate grille, flanked by distinctive LED daytime running lights and large side air intakes. The sides are made even sleeker by the use of pop-out door handles – a trick first seen on the Range Rover Velar – and the Evoque’s trademark ‘floating roof’ remains, thanks to blacked-out door and windscreen pillars. Round the back of the car, there’s a further nod to the Velar with a full-width styling element containing the tail lights. This slideshow requires … [Read more...] about Evolution, not revolution, for new Range Rover Evoque

So Land Rover has been in the truck-making game for 70 years now. That’s an impressive string, especially when you consider what the British automotive industry went through in the late-70s, early-80s. But here we are, and as you would expect, Land Rover decided to celebrate. And how did they celebrate this milestone? By making a giant Defender in the snow of the French Alps, of course. No, it doesn’t make much sense to me either, but it’s still kind of cool. The giant Land Rover snow art was made in anticipation of World Land Rover Day, April 30th, which will be exactly 70 years since the original Landy was first shown at the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show. Vertical Limits In La Plagne, France, which is southwest from Chamonix, snow artist Simon Beck, who somehow has a job creating geometric art on foot, confronted sub-zero temperatures to produce the outline of a Defender 820 feet across, 9,000 feet up in the French Alps. Yeah, the idea is kind of nutty, and the … [Read more...] about Land Rover “Draws” Massive Defender Outline At 9,000 Feet In The French Alps
