If Land Rover had their way, we’d only have seen the upcoming second-generation Range Rover Sport’s blurry silhouette and front headlight by now ahead of the car’s glamorous New York debut later this month. Looks like they should have guarded the car more closely, as these revealing pictures have made their way on the Internet.

As expected, the Sport takes heavy cues from both the smaller, more fashionable Evoque and the flagship, statesmen-like Range Rover. The front lights are narrower than those on the Range Rover and swept back further like the Evoque’s. Following the outgoing model, the front grille has two horizontal bars to the Range Rover’s three.

The front fascia follows the Evoque in Dynamic trim closely, with a satin-finish faux-sump guard and fog lamps at each corner. There are vents on the bonnet too, just like the Evoque Coupe, and as we’ve seen in the video teaser, the fender vents are now sleeker. The wheels use the same design on both the existing Range Rover models.

Round the back, there’re more Evoque-inspired details such as the slim lights and twin downturned round exhausts. The ‘Sport’ badge is now on the left, with the Range Rover roundel taking over the other side. From the badging, this looks like the top of the range 5.0 litre V8 Supercharged model.
