2015 Land Rover Freelander 3 / Baby Discovery caught outside Gaydon

We have seen the next-generation Land Rover Freelander 3 testing at various locations, including the snowy Sweden and extreme Nürburgring.

Here we have new spy shots of the new Land Rover Freelander 3 with a production body testing on its home ground on public roads in England.

The prototype is heavily disguised, but the Evoque inspired design is clearly visibile, showing also a sloping roof line and a rear roof spoiler.

The new Freelander 3 is based on a modified Evoque 5-door platform and it will slot between the new Range Rover and 5-door Evoque.

Compared to the outgoing model it will be longer and bigger. A new optional third row seat is also rumoured.

The new Freelander 3 is expected to debut end of next year at the Paris Motor Show with a very similar engine range to the Evoque it is largely based on.

While nothing is official, different sources claim the Freelander nameplate will be dropped for the next generation as the new model will become part of the extended Discovery family.
