A test prototype of a new SUV caught the lens of photo spies. The car hid dense camouflage from prying eyes.

Land Rover is testing its next car novelty at the Nurburgring – a new generation Range Rover luxury SUV. Disguise makes it difficult to see the changes that the SUV will receive with the generation change. However, the overall shape and proportions are likely to remain intact.

So, the next Range Rover will not become more “round”, retaining its signature square body. The door handles are regular, not the electronic slide-out ones like the Velar and Evoque. Another interesting detail is the four tailpipes. A hint of a powerful engine under the hood of the novelty. Photo spies failed to look into the interior of the test Range Rover.

Fifth-generation SUV prototype being tested at the Nurburgring
Recall that the current Range Rover is considered one of the oldest models in its segment. The fourth generation of the SUV was presented back in September 2012 at the Paris Motor Show. So an upgrade for this model is objectively long overdue. At the same time, the brand should accelerate its work on the new product in order to keep up with its main rivals – Mercedes and BMW.

The market debut of the “fifth” Range Rover is scheduled for late 2021. The novelty is expected to have an MLA platform, a powerful V8 engine from BMW engineers, and a hybrid version in the future.
