The Range Rover SUV is not only one of the most important models for rappers all over the world, but it’s also crucial for Land Rover as most of its other vehicles are based on the same basic design of the boxy off-roader.
Models like the Range Rover sports, LR4 (Discovery) and LR2 (Freelander) all share their basic design and technology with the Range Rover, so as you can expect engineers have a lot of pressure resting on their shoulders when it comes to designing the next-gen model.
These latest spy shots show a prototype for the regular Range Rover testing in Northern Europe, revealing several telling details about its new styling as well as the interior. Code-named L405, the new off-roader is almost ready for its debut. The vehicle looks to be slightly longer than today’s model, with its roofline considerably lower as well. This should result in lower drag and a smaller overall look.
Look out for the debut of the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show next month or possibly at the New York Auto Show in April.
