The model is still disguised but we can see it will feature a lot more leg room and space for rear passengers making it the choice for those who can afford their own driver.

Additional information is limited, but previous reports have indicated the Range Rover will use an aluminium chassis that is being developed with the assistance of Jaguar, resulting in significant weight reduction.
