Default First shots of the 2011 Land Rover LRX

It began as a concept that was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in January 2008. And it was a show stopper! The LRX is the most compact Land Rover to date.

In March 2009, the UK Government announced a 27 million grant to be made available to Land Rover for the production of an all-new model. It was confirmed by Land Rover that the new vehicle will be an addition to the Range Rover line-up.

Unlike the rest of the marque's range, the LRX isn't likely to boast unbeatable off-road prowess with fuel-sucking power – quite the contrary, in fact. Whatever Land Rover decides to call it, the baby-ute should be available in both front and all-wheel drive flavors. That's right, 2011 will bring a FWD Land Rover to the scene. If that's not enough to put a twist in the knickers of brand purists everywhere, reports have also suggested that buyers will also be able to opt for a hybrid version.

I've been in love with this car since the day the LRX concept was unveiled. And as expected,the production version will stay very close to the concept.Just love those timeless lines and the compact stance! IMO,the shorter wheelbase should lend it the off-road prowess epitomized by Land Rovers,contrary to what this report says!

Some more pics. courtesy : Auto Express - New & Used Car Reviews and News
and news courtesy : WheelsUnplugged - India's Leading Automobile News Website |

Land Rover, one of the marquee British brands owned by Tata Motors, has confirmed that the production version of its LRX concept car- compact Range Rover - will be available in both 2WD and 4WD versions. To be built at the company's multi award-winning plant in Halewood, on Merseyside, the small-sized SUVs will be sold in over 100 countries around the world. It has been learnt that the new car will join the Range Rover line-up in 2011 and will also be sold in India later. The 2012 Land Rover LRX is slated to debut at the 2010 Paris Auto Show in the fall.
Autocar UK has suggested that the four-wheel-drive LRX will be launched initially and a 185-horsepower 2.2-liter diesel engine sourced from PSA Peugeot Citroen. Gasoline and hybrid versions are in the works, reports say. A leading UK-based publication claimed that by the end of 2010, Land Rover will be testing the first diesel hybrid prototype, named the 'Range-e', being developed using a Range Rover Sport platform. Tests of this vehicle will use the existing 3.0 litre TDV6 diesel engine, featuring a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.

'The two-wheel-drive option will give customers the chance to benefit from lower entry-level pricing, plus CO2 and fuel economy efficiencies,' said Phil Popham, managing director of Land Rover. He added, 'The total SUV sector dropped slightly in 2009, from 1.26 million to 1.22 million, but two-wheel-drive sales went up by 100,000 to 274,000.” However, Popham promised that Land Rover 'remains committed to four-wheel-drive leadership' and said it would 'continue to make the best all-terrain vehicles for customers who require the ultimate in off-road driving'. Even though Popham refused to reveal the prices of the baby Range Rover, it is speculated in the British media circles that the price could start from £30,000.

Designed and engineered at Land Rover's state of the art Gaydon facility, the new Range Rover will be the smallest, lightest and most efficient vehicle the company has ever produced.

Phil Popham had earlier said, “The production of a small Range Rover model is excellent news for our employees, dealers and customers. It is a demonstration of our commitment to investing for the future, to continue to deliver relevant vehicles for our customers, with the outstanding breadth of capability for which we are world-renowned."

"Feedback from our customer research also fully supports our belief that a production version of the LRX Concept would further raise the desirability of our brand and absolutely meet their expectations." Phil added. The new model, referred to as ‘Range Rover Compact’ by Popham, will be Land Rover’s most efficient car with emissions that will get into the 120s for CO2 g/km. He added: “120g/km equates to about 50mpg, which is what we talked about when we launched the] concept. It will be better than the current Freelander with stop-start.”

I feel the face looks more like an Outlander! The bonnet, headlights and bumpers. All look similar.

I think this is more based on the concept of the landrover built by west coast customs for the prince of the middle east.
Here are the pictures.

@quattro:

hehehe, they now changed the delivery timeline to 4 months, and it seems a facelift is on its way though they are not able to confirm it.

BTW everytime I see your garage, I feel like making a trip to Aurangabad just to see them altogether!

The under-test LRX has stayed true to the concept. The rear would be a touch claustrophobic to sit in though. Is a 5-door version expected?

First pics. of the Range Rover Evoque !

The wait is finally over! This is the first official picture of the Range Rover Evoque, the production version of the LRX concept which debuted at the Detroit Motor Show in 2008.

Bearing a striking resemblance to the original LRX concept, the newcomer is the smallest and lightest Range Rover ever made. Design boss Gerry McGovern describes the car as “a modern and relevant execution of the familiar Range Rover design language.”

Land Rover has also confirmed that the new car will be named Evoque – a name that, according to Land Rover, “implies exclusivity and arouses emotions.”

The Evoque will also become the cleanest Land Rover when it goes on sale in the UK next summer. Available in both two and four-wheel-drive, the greenest version will emit less than 130g/km of CO2.

The car will be sold in over 160 countries worldwide. So getting the styling right is key to the car’s appeal, and crucial for Land Rover’s plans to make the Range Rover brand appeal to more people.

The firm also confirmed that the Evoque will make its public debut at the Paris Motor Show and will be built at the Halewood plant in Liverpool, where the Freelander is currently assembled. This will create 1,000 jobs in the Merseyside area.

It's really good to see that Land Rover has not played much with the looks of the concept LRX! Very few production cars are a true image of the concept. But this is one helluva looker!! Although I'm not sure if this is for the off-roaders.

But will it have just 2 doors? An SUV coupe?!? Or will the final production version get 4 doors?
