Land Rover is plotting two bold changes to its line-up, due to kick off in the next five years. Following long bouts of discussion in the JLR management rooms, Autocar can reveal the British firm is bringing back an entry-level Land Rover, set to be the cheapest model ever and expected to be revealed in 2021.
Also on the cards is a sportier, more premium upgrade to their recently unveiled Defender. This new model certainly won’t be the cheapest ever Land Rover made; instead, it will be highly luxurious, electric, and probably cost well into six figures. We’ve got all the insights on both new cars.

Readers with a penchant for McLarens and a spare £1,425,000 will be thrilled by the Elva, an 804bhp speedster which tops out Woking’s Ultimate Series range. Autocar scooped the windscreen-less roadster earlier this year, and now it’s official.
This issue also sees Seat quashing hopes of a bespoke Cupra sports car, Fiat dropping hints that it may be axing its long-standing Panda city car, and Skoda finally unwrapping the hotly-anticipated new Octavia. We also got an early glimpse of Kia’s Futuron concept. Fun fact: it’s said to have been inspired by “UFO and flying saucer design”.
