Less than 24 hours after Land Rover released its first video teaser of the upcoming 2014 Range Rover Sport ahead of its New York Auto Show debut, it appears someone has already spilled the beans. The image you see here comes from the VMax 200 Facebook page, and it clearly shows what looks to be the new Sport hanging out in a garage.

2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport spy shotDesign-wise, the new Sport appears to borrow heavily from the smaller Evoque crossover while still having plenty of cues that tie it to the all-new Big Daddy Range Rover. The two-tier grille mimics the three-tier one of the larger Range Rover, and the headlamp and taillamp clusters follow similar design cues (though the rear lights are more squared off than vertical), but parts of the front fascia are clearly reminiscent of the pretty little Evoque, as are the rocker panel flares that remind of the three-door model. Unlike its costlier Range Rover sibling, there are no vertical faux side vents embossed in the door skins – instead, there's a small fender vent above the front wheels with a pair of matte silver strakes to give directional thrust.

Land Rover has not yet released any details about the 2014 Range Rover Sport, only saying that it will be the company's "fastest, most responsive and most agile vehicle to date." Stay tuned for the official unveiling on March 26.

      I hope so. That's a clean looking vehicle. The new Range Rover looks odd at the front in my opinion.
      • 2 Years Ago
      The front looks like the Range Rover but the rear looks like the Evoque. I kind of like it but I'm having mixed feelings about it. I need to see it in person maybe my opinion will change.

      Would it be impolite to suggest that is in for a mechanical issue,.. already? i was hoping for a more distintive model from it's big brother. This just looks like a short wheelbase RR.

        No. Its a British vehicle, the stereotype of them having some kind of issue is generally correct.
      Here's a lovely shot of a Land Rover in its native habitat: The repair shop.

      Great… it in the shop for repairs already.

      I'm surprised at all the negative comments here. I think this looks really good, much better than the full-sized RR.

      Look, it's already leaking fluids.

      Very nice, like that Ford Explorer front end.
