The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Coupe has been caught during testing on European roads and at Nürburgring. Photographers managed to capture several photos of the upcoming SUV at different locations. We also have two rendering photos that show how the vehicle could look like when it comes out.
As you can see in the photos, the test mule, code-named L560, is more rakish and more stylish than its counterpart, it has a sloped roof, redesigned rear end, steeply raked rear window, thinner taillights, wider rear bumper, and it sits on the all-aluminum platform. As for the inside, given that the vehicle has a sloped and lower roof, most likely there won’t be the third-row seats. Storage area will also be smaller. The InControl touchscreen should receive an update.
The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Coupe will be equipped with either an inline-4 or inline-6 powertrains. A supercharged 3.0L V6 is also said to come as standard engine, while a turbodiesel V6 and 5.0L V8 petrol unit will also be offered as optional engines. There’s also a high chance that the automaker will offer an electric variant that will share the same electric motor with the upcoming Jaguar electric SUV, currently in development. An eight-speed automatic gearbox is going to be offered as standard option.
