Minimally disguised, the prototype has an evolutionary design that incorporates a number of styling elements from the Range Rover Evoque. Notable highlights include a three bar grille, a clamshell hood and LED-infused headlights. The model also appears slightly larger than its predecessor, so expect additional rear legroom and added cargo capacity.

Engine options will likely carryover, so expect the usual petrol and diesel choices. There could also be a plug-in hybrid variant with some technology from the Range_e concept.

Despite the carryover drivetrain, expect a big improvement in fuel efficiency as the model is expected to ride on an aluminum-intensive platform that was co-developed with Jaguar. Nothing is official, but previous reports have indicated the platform could enable the crossover to weigh 400 kg (882 lbs) less than its predecessor.

The 2013 Range Rover could be introduced later this year, so look for a possible unveiling at the Paris Motor Show.
