This snatched spy shot appears to show a late prototype of the rumoured long-wheelbase Range Rover.

Taken by Autocar reader Ian Bushell on a British motorway, this prototype clearly has a longer third side window and longer rear overhang. It also appears to have a longer rear door. 

Extra rear legroom is essential for both the Chinese market and breaking into the traditional executive car market, but it remains to be seen whether the bigger boot is just for luggage or might also house a pair of third-row seats.

Judging by this test car, the stretched Range Rover should be unveiled late this year.

The fourth-generation Range Rover is here to be judged as a luxury car as much as it is a 4x4

 4-seater car can not fit the family members more than 4.And extra leg room is more comfortable for a long journey.

I agree with a few of the comments stating that extra leg room is always a plus factor whenever we shop around for a car. However, it is quite surprising though that such a stretched version is to be released in the Chinese market when we all know that Europeans are pretty much taller than Asians. Nonetheless, I am sure this version of the car is going to be a hit with the additional boot space too which is definitely useful for everyone, regardless of nationality.

RR stretch

Glad to see JLR demand to customer needs, as with this stretch RR. China is one of the most important markets for JLR, and if thats what the customer wants, why not? I suspect a stretch RR or a 7 seat RR might sell reasonably well in the ME as well.

Is a stretch version of the XF planned, to compete with the A6 L?
