More details on next-gen Range Rover, new crossover

Jaguar Land Rover doesn’t see a slinky silhouette and reduced off-road ability as being impediments for a Range Rover-branded product, while it also sees an opportunity for the eponymous Range Rover to go even further upmarket. Auto Express reports the new Range Rover crossover – referred to in the past as the Road Rover – will be the lowest and sleekest SUV ever to bear the Range Rover name, while the flagship Range Rover will be positioned to better rival the Bentley Bentayga.

Toyota Raize: Company rules out Hyundai Venue rival for Australia

The Toyota Raize is a cut-price micro SUV developed by subsidiary Daihatsu, which appears to be focused on the Japanese market - for now. Its 3995mm length makes the Raize shorter than a Mazda 2, though it has a higher riding position, and a capacious 369L boot that measures 1.0m wide and 865mm deep. It’s also a little shorter than the smallest SUVs in Australia, including the Hyundai Venue and Suzuki Vitara.
