Almost two months ago we brought you some of the first spy photos of the next Land Rover LR2, or Freelander as it's known in other markets. Today, grainy images of the vehicle have leaked onto the web, revealing the few bits that were covered by camouflage.

The end result is unsurprising: the updates aren't incredibly dramatic or sweeping. This update is, after all, a facelift to help push the long-in-the-tooth model through until the next-gen vehicle can come along in a few years' time.

The photos--as grainy as they are--reveal subtle tweaks to the foglights and air dam intake inlets, as well as an additional underbody protection plate to help guard against offroad obstacles should it ever be reduced to actual off-road service. A few other cosmetic changes at the rear wrap up the facelift.

Inside, we expect the "new" LR2 to get a slight redesign and some new entertainment options and features, but with a substantially identical look and feel. Hit the link below to see more leaked images.
