Will it arrive in 2021 or not? Well, it will be hard to confirm this as the COVID-19 puts the globe on lockdown. Well, these two images of a possible Land Rover compact luxury sedan have been shared on a popular German and British motoring website with very minimal information shared. Looking at the lines and the silhouette of the sedan we can safely say that it will be based on the current upgraded Jaguar XE sedan which was launched in the United Kingdom just months ago.
LAND ROVER SEDAN EXTERIOR DESIGN
The design of this new Land Rover sedan 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
Land Rovers’s all-new luxurious and technology-packed interior delivers more comfort, quality and convenience for all occupants. Every aspect of the cabin has been 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 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.
