2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque spy shots – Click above for high-res image gallery

Land Rover may be sending specially wrapped versions of its early LRX Range Rover Evoque prototypes to different cities around the world, but when it comes to the serious development testing, the standard swirly yellow camouflage will do. Here, our spies have caught the five-door version of the Evoque making its first foray onto the Nürburgring, giving us hope that there might be a sporting bone or two in the Evoque's skeleton.

Details on the new Evoque are still pretty slim as of this writing, but we fully expect the usual raft of details to be released closer to the crossover's public debut at the Paris Motor Show. As of right this writing, we know that both front- and all-wheel drive versions will be available and that a hybrid powertrain is planned. For now, scroll through our high-res gallery of spy shots below.

      Loses some of the appeal with 4 doors.

        It really does. The 2 door body style what what set this apart, made it special and cool. With 4 doors it's just another me-too crossover to get lost in the crowds. Exactly what we don't need.

      Hmmm i'm still undecided over wether I like this or not. On one hand I love the Land Rover brand on the other I hate this cheap garishness they seem to be diving in to with the Sport and the new look Vogue.

      This is getting ridiculous. The 'Ring is not a showroom. This thing has no business being on it for 'testing'

      I'm still waiting to hear what it will use as a powertrain. Since it shares it's platform with the LR2, which in reality is mostly a Volvo, and the LR2 uses Volvo's 3.2L V6, it was assumed that would be the initial engine. I would hope that Tata/LRJ would opt for something from their own parts bin or at least use the 300HP Volvo 3.0T that's going into the S60.

      Thank you.

      I just saw two of these in this camo here in Vegas last weekend and was bummed I didn't have my camera. They are much smaller in person than they seem in pics. Maybe the size of that little Ford almost SUV thing. Cool looking.
