Watch the new Range Rover LRX launch live on Autocar.
The much-anticipated new compact Range Rover, which our spy shots have shown looks very like the LRX concept shown at the 2008 Detroit motor show, is due to be unveiled tonight at 8.30pm.
All versions of the LRX are likely to use a version of the Freelander’s drivetrain, with a revised specification of that car’s PSA-sourced 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine producing around 185bhp.
It will also be the first manual Range Rover since 2002, because a six-speed manual 'box will be standard. The front-drive model will emit less than 130g/km of CO2; four-wheel-drive LRXs will emit around 140g/km.
