What’s Land Rover Got Cookin’ With This Discovery Sport Mule? 27

Land Rover kicked off a slew of new models with the introduction of the Discovery Sport – but that was just a couple of years ago. So what’s going on with this test mule?

Spotted by the intrepid paparazzi at CarPix undergoing testing, this partially camouflaged Disco Sport sports a few telltale signs that JLR has some revisions in the works.

For one, the fuel cap has moved. For another, the single exhausts on each side of the current model have been replaced by twin tips on the left side. And the very fact that it’s out testing tells us there has to be something going on.

Just what that is, we don’t know. It could be a new version of the existing model. (That new cap could well be a charging port.) It could be an early prototype for its replacement. It could be preparing for a new Evoque, the current model (sized similar to the Discovery Sport) having been on the market for over six and a half years already. Or it could be something else entirely that’s simply wearing the current model’s bodywork.

Whatever it is, Land Rover is clearly not asleep at the wheel – especially as the market for SUVs continues to grow at a faster pace than just about any other segment in the industry.

Why Is Land Rover Testing This Pair Of Camouflaged SUVs At The ‘Ring? 19

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Land Rover, Land Rover Discovery, Land Rover Scoops, Range Rover, Scoops, U Spy on 11 19th, 2017


These two Land Rover SUVs were spotted recently by one of our readers in a parking garage at the Nurburgring, both cars heavily camouflaged, which is always intriguing to see.

While it may seem like there isn’t much to go on, we can tell you that the Range Rover in these images is probably the new facelifted model, based on its leather upholstery and steering wheel.

We saw both those leather seat options on the 2018 Range Rover last month when the official press release came out. Why the automaker is still testing it and why it’s so well hidden, is hard to say.

Also, if you look closely at the wheels, you’ll see those are the large 22″ 5 split-spoke wheels, available only on the range-topping SVAutobiography Dynamic, which this could definitely be, although it still doesn’t explain the camouflage.

As for the other SUV, which is a Land Rover Discovery, it actually doesn’t look out of the ordinary at all. Its only discernible feature is the fact that it’s got roof rails, which doesn’t mean anything really. Nevertheless, going to all the trouble to put on the camo, and at the Nurburgring at that, does raises questions, but your guess is as good as ours, so feel free to chip in.
