Nine new Jaguars to expect in the coming years

  Nine new Jaguars to expect in the coming years With electrification on the horizon for Jaguar's model range, we run down what the future holds for the brandWe've revealed details of the J-Pace, which will go head-to-head with the Porsche Cayenne, but there are eight other new cars set to land in the coming years.

Here ' s what the new Range Rover Evoque could look like . The smallest Range Rover of the bunch certainly won't skimp on style.

As expected, the new Evoque looks like a baby Velar – and we're not complaining. We still have six months to wait until the Land Rover lifts the wraps off the new Range Rover Evoque , but thanks to new spy photos we’ve been given an updated preview of the new compact SUV before its debut.

The smallest Range Rover of the bunch certainly won't skimp on style.

Launched way back in 2011, the Range Rover Evoque is one of the oldest small premium SUVs on sale today and needs to be refreshed to fight off fresher segment rivals.

Aside from having to compete with the likes of the BMW X1, Audi Q3 and the Mercedes GLA, the Evoque now has to go up against a model from within the Jaguar Land Rover family, the E-Pace.

We test a Range Rover Evoque and respond to a reader's questions about reliability and practicality. Find out what our verdict is on the baby of the Land Rover line-up. The five most common faults in new cars that appear within the first three years are revealed by Which? - here ' s what to look out for.

While the current Evoque looks like a smaller Range Rover Sport, the new model looks like a small-scale Velar. We don't consider that a bad thing at all. Though it' s covered in camouflage, we can see the slim headlights, taillights and grille.

Numerous spy shots have shown prototypes undergoing testing on the Nürburgring while carrying full production bodies – that’s usually a sign an official reveal is slated to take place relatively soon.

It should be out later this year, and to ease the wait, we’ve used our crystal ball to imagine how the second generation of the posh soft-roader will look like based on those test vehicles we’ve spotted so far. 

Despite the heavy camouflage those prototypes were wearing, it's easy to notice the strong Velar vibes, which is why Range Rover’s baby has been rendered with lots of cues taken from its bigger brother. Don’t expect to see those nifty pop-out door handles on the new Evoque as the vehicles tackling the Nordschleife had conventional handles.

Just here : I want you to understand that I have genuine affection for, and not inconsiderable experience with, proper Land Rovers and Range Rovers . So when I tell you that the Range Rover Evoque is an exercise in sloppily-executed cynicism that makes the Cadillac Cimarron look like the 1995 Lexus

The front end of the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque rides on MacPherson struts, much like its less-stylish sibling, the Land Rover LR2. From here we can see what looks like a mass damper on the end.

While it won’t be an all-new model, since it stick's with the same D8 platform, the new Range Rover Evoque will benefit from upgraded underpinnings bringing a longer wheelbase and wider tracks.

That’s certainly good news since the modifications will have a positive impact on the cramped cabin of the outgoing model. The coupe-like roofline stays and it will once again eat into the rear-passenger headroom, but that’s the price to pay for having a stylish SUV.

Beyond its appearance, design boss Gerry McGovern has promised recently that the new Evoque will be 'more modern, more precise, more comfortable, more luxurious'. Power is expected to come from JLR’s latest Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, while a mild-hybrid system is also on the agenda. Plug-in hybrids are also believed to be in the works.

It's likely that we'll get our first look at the 2019 Evoque in early October at the Paris motor show.

Mars 2020 lander's heat shield cracks in testing .
One of Mars 2020's heat shields cracked after a week-long series of tests, and NASA has no choice but to ask Lockheed Martin to build a replacement. The heat shield's purpose is to envelope and protect the Mars 2020 rover and landing system so they don't burn up when they enter the Martian atmosphere. Since the system will have to endure temperatures up to 3,800 degrees Fahrenheit, NASA and Lockheed Martin (its contractor for the mission) subjected the shield to forces up to 20 percent greater than what it'll encounter during entry.
