Spied: 2013 Range Rover

Spies have caught the next Range Rover testing in the UK with minimal disguise.

The newcomer seems to hit the perfect balance between the original Range Rover and the sporty, contemporary styling of the smaller Evoque.

Per se, a sloping roofline, clamshell bonnet, and LED headlights will feature. Like the current line-up, two models will be offered; the Sport and Vogue.

Although larger than the outgoing model, the new luxury SUV will weigh around 400kg (881lbs) less than today's model, thanks to an aluminium chassis that allows for improved handling, car-like handling, and lower running costs.

The number plate is registered to a Range Rover Vogue with a 5.0 litre V8 petrol engine. Previous prototypes were sporting a 3.0 litre SDV6 with 255bhp under the hood. In addition to the SDV6, the current engine line-up will be carried over, which consists of a 4.4 litre TDV8 and a 5.0 litre Supercharged V8.

Expect a healthy price increase over the current £48,000 for the Sport and £69,500 for the Vogue. The pipeline will include a hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants.

Expect the Range Rover to bow in September at the Paris Motor Show, before going on sale early next year.
