Land Rover LRX

The LRX concept is a smaller, sportier alternative to the Range Rover Sport. It blends traditional Land Rover exterior design elements with a sports-car fast windshield, low, sloping roofline, and see-through C-pillars. The 2+2 has full-time AWD with HDC, uncovered aluminum (no wood), and an easy-to-configure cabin. The LRX is green-friendly--the leather seats are vegetable-tanned (chromium-free) and headliner and door inserts are made from recycled glass bottles. Seen as Land Rover's Mini Cooper or Audi TT, this concept could go on sale in about three years and, despite being 10 inches shorter than the LR2 it's based on, would likely start at a higher MSRP.
