Nissan may release a coupe version of Qashqai to take on the Evoque

Nissan is considering a plan to build a sportier version of its Qashqai compact crossover that will target the Range Rover Evoque. Marco Fioravanti, Nissan Europe's general manager for product planning and strategy, remarked that the coupe-styled version of the Qashqai could capture the attention of consumers in Europe where crossover coupes have become popular thanks to the Evoque.

"We are observing the moves of other automakers such as Audi, Honda and Volvo. We will not stand watching," Fioravanti remarked during a press event for the new Qashqai in Madrid, Spain. A source has confirmed to Automotive News Europe that Nissan is mulling a coupe-styled Qashqai.

Fioravanti said that the Japanese carmaker will not build a Qashqai hybrid version.  "Our traditional engines have excellent fuel consumption, “he said. “We want to keep a high 'value for money' formula on the Qashqai."

Range Rover Evoque Sport officially confirmed

In order to make the Range Rover even more popular, Land Rover will offer a Sport version of its crossover. According to AutoExpress, Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern said that the British manufacturer is looking to build cabriolet and special editions but it could “a more overtly sporty one, for example”.

Although there were many rumors regarding a more powerful Evoque, this is the first time an official said something. The new car may hit the market just in time to face a more powerful version of the Audi Q3 previewed by the RS Q3 Concept unveiled back in April at the Auto China 2012 in Beijing.

According to the same McGovern, the Range Rover Evoque managed to attract new customers to the land Rover brand (80% percent of the people who buy an Evoque are new to the brand) and due to this the manufacturer decided to broaden its appeal with models such as the Evoque Cabrio and Special Edition with Victoria Beckham.

Startech’s latest project is a program for the Range Rover Evoque that will be introduced at the 2011 Dubai International Motor Show. Startech reduced the ride height of the five-door version. It also fitted it with a set of 21-inch two-tone wheels.

The exterior has received a modified bumper and a new set of exhaust tips that came from stainless steel. But Startech did an even more incredible job inside. It has a new steering wheel, aluminum pedals, and foot rest and shifter.

Startech used black and white leather and its accents are built from real carbon fiber. The Evoque is powered by a 2.0-liter SI4 gasoline engine. Startech didn’t boost its power but then the vehicle already delivers an impressive 240hp. Startech has revealed that this engine kit is nearly ready. There’s no denying that the interiors of this package are indeed outstanding but then, there’s a very steep price to pay.

Jaguar Land Rover said it has awarded more than GBP2 billion ($3.3 billion) worth of supply contracts to 40-plus British companies for its new Range Rover Evoque model. After winning a global tendering exercise, these companies will supply components for the new Range Rover coupe and five-door vehicles.

Some companies that received the contracts include International Automotive Components, Johnson Controls and Magna International on Merseyside; McKecknie and Kostal in Yorkshire; and Sertec, Walsall Pressings and Kautex Unipart in the West Midlands.

After a tour of JLR’s Halewood plant in Merseyside, the U.K.’s business secretary Vince Cable said the U.K. automotive supply chain can score major contracts and create vital jobs in the country. Due to arrive in dealerships in 2011, the Evoque is the smallest and most fuel-efficient Range Rover, JLR’s website said. It is also the first of several new products planned during the next five years.

Hybrid technology will not be used on the new Range Rover Evoque compact SUV. Interestingly, its LRX concept car predecessor was equipped with electrically driven rear wheels as part of an environmentally-friendly four-wheel drive system.

Land Rover’s global brand director John Edwards told AutoExpress that instead, future generations of the Land Rover Discovery and the Range Rover will have hybrid powertrains.

The front-wheel-drive, 2.2 liter diesel versions of the baby SUV that will start selling in the summer of 2011 could boast an emission rating under 130g/km CO2 and fuel economy of 50 mpg – comparable to the levels that the LRX hybrid was aiming for.

However, Land Rover says the new car is 30 mm taller than the coupe and the rear passengers get over 50 mm more shoulder room. A full-sized glass panoramic roof enriches the sensation of space.

Land Rover adds that the 2012 Range Rover Evoque 5-Door will come with a starting price of GBP30,000 (EUR35,000 or $48,000). The engines are the same found on the coupe, meaning we will find a 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine with 150PS or 190PS derivatives.

The front-wheel drive version is driven by the 2.2 liter engine and delivers 150 PS that achieves sub 135g/km CO2. The most powerful version will be outfitted the 2.0-liter Si4 petrol engine, delivering 240 PS and this model can go from 0 to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds.

To maintain its sales, Land Rover would have to design greener versions of all its models, according to Carl-Peter Forster, the CEO of company owner Tata Motor Ltd.

In an interview, Forster said that the lightweight two-door SUV, the Range Rover Evoque that was unveiled last Thursday, would have to be followed by upgrades of its bigger all-terrain autos that have less carbon emissions.

Forster also said that he doesn't support the idea that if the company makes a small car, then it can afford to make a large car. He explained the value of more fuel-efficient engines being used to power the bigger Range Rover, describing it as a way to still be socially acceptable.

Volkswagen is introducing its smallest sports utility vehicle so far, this further expanding its SUV lineup. With the new and tiny Volkswagen T-Cross, the German carmaker is taking advantage of the continued growing demand for SUVs, whether large or small.

With a styling that makes it appear like a smaller brother of the Volkswagen T-Roc, the new VW T-Cross is underpinned by the A0 version of the VW Group’s MQB platform. This is the same platform that underpins other models in the VW Group such as the VW Polo and Audi A1 as well as the SEAT Ibiza and SEAT Arona crossover.

The compact nature of the new VW T-Cross is wrapped in its small dimensions. It boasts of a length of just 161.8 inches (4.11 meters), making nearly as long as the Nissan Juke small crossover. Inside, the new VW T-Cross can accommodate between 13.6 cubic feet (385 liters) to 16.07 cubic feet (455 liters) of cargo, depending on the position of the rear seats. These rear seats can slide 5.5 inches (14 cm), thereby increasing or reducing the available cargo space. When the rear seats are folded down, the cargo space offered by the VW T-Cross increases to 45.24 cubic feet (1,281 liters). An optional folding front passenger seat can be availed by customers who need more cargo room.

BMW M GmbH is getting things all hyped up leading to the impending launch of its BMW X3 M sports activity vehicle and the BMW X4 M sports activity coupe. In an effort to make things more excited and make prospective customers think more about the new X3 M and X4 M, BMW has decided to let the public view their respective prototypes as they tackled the Nurburgring.

BMW’s high performance unit calls the event as the first official presentation of the new BMW X3 M and the BMW X4 M. However, the event can’t be called an official unveiling, the as both M versions of the X3 and X4 were both heavily camouflaged, and BMW M didn’t really provide more details – especially their actual specs – about these new high performance models. Indeed, a presentation is really the most appropriate word to describe the event.

The official presentation of the new BMW X3 M and BMW X4 M, which series development has already been kicked off, took place during the DTM racing weekend at the Nrburgring (September 7 to 9, 2018). During the official presentation, BMW M had prototypes of the BMW X3 M and the BMW X4 M test driven on the circuit. The prototypes have been camouflaged to indicate their nature as pre-series vehicles, which means that nothing is final yet with regards to the development of the X3 M and the X4 M. Their performances are still being tuned, and their first public appearance is just a showcase of what to expect from these two new M vehicles.

For the longest time, the Skoda Yeti was the only crossover model that the automaker offered to the market. However, that particular model did not really live up to its body style because it became known as an eccentric but adorable tall and rugged hatchback. After the Yeti, Skoda decided to offer a much larger seven-passenger Kodiaq that came in the second half of 2016.

This was then followed by the smaller five seat only Karoq in 2017, which was meant to replace the Yeti. In 2018, Skoda finally decided to add the Kamiq into their portfolio. However, the said model will only be exclusively sold in China, unlike its older siblings that were made available all over the world.

Without having to mention this, the city oriented crossover will be positioned just below the Karoq that we mentioned earlier. This also rounds off Skoda’s three model crossover lineup that is being offered in China. When it comes to the design elements, there isn’t much for us to say because it looks pretty similar to the other two “K” models. However, one thing that you would notice is that the headlights have a different layout, and the main ones are significantly larger too.
