Seen on this page is a new image, which shows two scale model cars demonstrating how the upcoming Land Rover Discovery Sport would look like. This image was published on the internet earlier today and reveals the new model’s design ahead of its public debut on 3rd next month. The Discovery Sport will be based on the Discovery Vision Concept that was previewd at the New York Auto Show and at the Beijing Motor Show some months ago this year.
The Discover Vision Concept gives us all a hint of what the manufacturer’s upcoming Discovery models would look like and the new model showcases the latest design language from the British SUV maker. Talking about the Discovery Vision Concept at the model’s publid debut, Phil Popham, Group Marketing Director JLRs said: “We announced at the Geneva Motor Show in March that the Discovery family is set to evolve. And it is apt that in the 25th anniversary year of the original Discovery that we preview how this evolution will take us forward into a daring new era. The Discovery Vision Concept gives us the first stunning glimpse into this hugely exciting future.”
The manufacturing of the Land Rover Discovery Sport will begin early next year and the new model will be produced at the company’s Halewood plant in United Kingdom. The Land Rover Discovery Sport will be an “all-new premium compact SUV” and will become the first model in the company’s Discovery line-up, which would soon get more models. The Discovery Sport is basically a replacement for the Freelander, which has been doing fairly well in most markets. The Discovery Sport has been built on an extended LR-MS platform of the current generation Range Rover Evoque’s five door model. The Discovery Sport would be powered by a set of Ingenium petrol and diesel engines that will have a four cylinder layout. The new model is also likely to get a 3.0 liter supercharged V6 engine that will power the top end variant.
