The stylish Range Rover Evoque SUV will soon be available as a larger, more practical seven-seater to form a premium alternative to the Nissan X-Trail and Kia Sorento. A prototype has been spotted testing but our exclusive render shows what the finished car could look like when it goes on sale in 2018.
2018 Range Rover Evoque 7-seater styling
We expect the new seven-seat Evoque to be noticeably longer than the current model in order to accommodate an extra row of seats. The current car’s sloping roofline will probably be replaced by a flatter, squarer design to ensure the rear door openings are tall enough to offer easy access to the third row of seats.
Many signature Evoque details, such as the wraparound headlights, chunky front end and black-painted pillars, should be carried over to the new car mostly unchanged, however.
2018 Range Rover Evoque 7-seater interior
The new car’s interior should look almost identical to the current Evoque’s. The broad metal trim piece running the full width of the cabin should feature on the new model, as should the tall centre console and wide infotainment screen. Thanks to its raised roof, there should be more headroom on offer compared to the standard five-seat model, however. Boot space – with the second and third seat rows folded – should be impressive, too.
2018 Range Rover Evoque 7-seater engines and driving
Entry-level models will reportedly come with the same selection of turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines as the current five-seat model. Front-wheel drive is expected to be offered on cheaper models while rumours suggest higher-spec versions will come with V6 engines for the first time in the Evoque lineup.
2018 Range Rover Evoque 7-seater price and release date
We’re not expecting the seven-seat Evoque to emerge until early 2018. Entry-level models could cost approximately £40,000 while top-of-the-range versions could set you back as much as £65,000.
