Bernstein Research report mentions Land Rover plans on introducing a larger version of the Evoque sometime in 2016.

Previous rumors regarding the Range Rover Evoque XL / Grand Evoque hinted at a 2015 launch but now it seems the market release will occur a year later. Internally codenamed L560, the bigger Evoque will ride on Jaguar's iq[Al] platform which means it will be lighter than the standard Evoque despite the increased size.

The new model will be manufactured in the same location where the compact Jaguar models will be produced, a brand new facility which is currently being built at Solihull. Bernstein Research predicts Land Rover will be able to sell as much as 80,000 units per year and that it will be the most popular model built on the new aluminum platform. The Evoque XL will be positioned between the current Evoque and the Range Rover Sport and will be powered by an array of four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines offered with various outputs.
