2015 Land Rover Freelander successor 'baby Discovery' starts winter testing

Last month the successor to the Land Rover Freelander 2 was caught testing on its home ground on public roads in England.

Testing now continues in the snowy and icy Sweden, where the next Freelander reveals more of its rear and especially the new taillights. The round elements look from the side similar to the new Range Rover Sport taillights.

Based on the stretched version of the same platform that underpins the Evoque, it follows a similar styling but looks slightly rounder and also bigger.

While nothing is official, Land Rover reportedly plans to make some changes with its product portfolio and the model could drop the Freelander nameplate and be launched as a Range Rover or as a new model part of the Discovery range.

Public debut is most likely in September at the Paris Motor Show where we’ll have full details about the production model’s name and specs.
