New Land Rover Freelander spied

The next-generation version of the Land Rover Freelander has been spotted, with the vehicle disguised as another of the British manufacturer's brands.

Popular motoring publication Auto Express spied the new vehicle, with its editors pointing out that the car appeared to be a long-wheelbase variety of the Range Rover Evoque on first glimpse.

While it was acknowledged that this car could slip in perfectly between the standard Evoque model and the new Range Rover Sport, it soon became evident that there is more than meets the eye.

According to Auto Express, a strange lump where the fuel filler cap would be on a Land Rover car suggested that the vehicle underneath did not match up to the chassis shown off during the test run.

Add to this the fact that the shape and size of the prototype's grille and two lower air intakes were unlike the Evoque's front and it soon becomes clear that there is much more to this vehicle than first assumed.

Completing the puzzle is the knowledge that Land Rover uses the same scalable steel platform for its Freelander and Evoque brands, which easily allows the company to disguise the prototype.

The new Land Rover Freelander is touted to launch in 2015, with further details of the car set to be revealed in the months to come.
