The first spy pictures have emerged of the facelifted Range Rover Sport.
The disguised mule was spotted testing at the Nurburgring with a new front bumper and a bigger grille similar to the Land Rover Discovery Vision concept, but with an additional air intake.
The Discovery Vision was unveiled at the Beijing motor show in 2014 and pointed the way forward for the expanded Discovery lineup. The facelifted Range Rover Sport will have a front-end design in keeping with the manufacturer's most recent products such as the new Discovery Sport.
The facelifted Range Rover Sport will replace the model that went on sale in 2013, and could be launched in mid-2016.
Prices for the current model start at £61,950, and a slight price increase is expected for its successor, which is likely to get a subtly improved cabin with Jaguar Land Rover’s latest infotainment system, InControl.
The current crop of diesel engines - the 3.0-litre V6 and 4.4-litre V8 - are expected to be carried over to the revamped model as well as the 5.0-litre V8 petrol, but efficiency and emissions could be improved.
Current CO2 emissions range from 164g/km to 298g/km while official fuel economy starts at 21.7mpg and goes up to 44.1mpg in the present Range Rover Sport lineup.
Range Rover declined to comment on the facelifted model.
