The body will go sleek with a high waistline, decreasing window space and increasing the size of it’s wheels thus improving traction, clearance and off road capabilities. JLR is expected to enhance the off road ability of this vehicle in a big way with a sturdier aluminum alloy body which would withstand much more torture than the current one.
