Land Rover is working on the facelift model of the Range Rover Sport and the test mule has been spied testing disguised at the Nurburgring race track in Germany. The upcoming SUV will come with minimal changes that will be made inside out.

According to the spy images revealed, the disguised Land Rover Range Rover Sport has been seen with a new front bumper with newly designed vertical air vents in place of horizontal air intakes, a revised larger front grille that can be seen on the Land Rover Discovery Vision concept showcased at the Beijing Motor Show in 2014, a reworked bonnet, a new license plate and new sets of alloy wheels. It will also sport new front fascia just like the upcoming Discover Sport.

Inside, the cabin will come loaded with new technologies such as Jaguar Land Rover’s latest infotainment system with InControl.

It is expected that the upcoming Range Rover Sport facelift will come with familiar and existing powertrain options. Under the hood, the SUV will get a 3.0-litre, V6 diesel engine that makes 292PS and 600 Nm of power and torque, respectively, while the other option will be a 4.4-litre V8 diesel motor that produces 338.8PS of power and 740 Nm of torque. The bigger - 5.0-litre V8 petrol motor develops 510PS and 625 Nm of power and torque, respectively.

All the engines are mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission, but it is expected that the car manufacturer might introduce a 9-speed automatic gearbox that comes fitted with the Evoque and the Discovery Sport. It is also said that the British car manufacturer might tweak the power output to make it more fuel efficient and powerful.

The facelifted Range Rover Sport is expected to go on sale in the mid of 2016 or late 2017 and is likely to have an increase in price over the current model. However, the company has not said anything about the pricing of the upcoming SUV. It will be revealed only during the time of launch.

Stay tuned for more updates.
