2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport spy shots

Land Rover is working on an update for its Range Rover Sport, as evidenced by camouflaged prototypes spotted testing in Europe.

As this is an update we’re talking about, likely the second-generation model’s mid-cycle update, the changes should be minimal.

The prototype shown here has a new bumper design, with a new shape for the air intakes and license plate support. There is also a revised grille surround as well as what appears to be a new hood, one likely designed to fit the revised grille.

The second-gen Range Rover Sport was all-new for the 2014 model year. The original model had a lifespan of about eight years, and assuming the same for the second-gen model it means we should see this updated version introduced for the 2018 model year.  A 2016 Range Rover Sport has just been announced. It’s received a new diesel-powered HSE Td6 variant as well as some new technologies for the cabin.

Similar updates to those you see here look to be set for the flagship Range Rover SUV, whose current generation was launched a year prior to the second-gen Range Rover Sport. The high-performance Range Rover Sport SVR has also been spotted in prototype form.

Stay tuned for further information as development continues.
