Latest spy shots glimpse at the upcoming new model's modern styling.
Dubbed the “baby Discovery,” this is the car that will soon replace the Freelander/LR2. Spied testing its all-new bodywork, the next-gen Freelander is based on the same LR-MS platform as the Evoque and will come with greater wading depth, more boot space and improved interior packaging. Power will come from JLR’s ‘Hotfire” four-cylinder engines, while styling cues from the Evoque will lend it a more modern, sporty look.
As for the new platform and body, these will be forged from a mix of materials, including high-strength steel, aluminum and composites. The new generation of Land Rover’s best-selling model will go on sale in early 2015, initially as a five-seater and later as a seven-seat model.
