Wow, third row option for the Discovery Sport, can’t wait to see it without the camo. I’m most interested in seeing what the interior will look like. The spy shots have give some little glimpses but we need more.
We know now the Jaguar XE will be getting 75mpg with the new Ingenium engine. The prototype shown here is plated as a 2.2L so it appears they didn’t put an Ingenium in that one yet. And of course it’ll be a lot heavier than the XE but should still help with fuel economy when it arrives.
Ahead of its official reveal, Land Rover uncovers innovative camouflaged Discovery Sport
New compact SUV remains true to Discovery family with option of a third row of rear seats
Latest camouflage wrap gives clearest view yet of vehicle’s design
Prototype vehicles leave Jaguar Land Rover’s Halewood plant to embark on final testing stages
Land Rover has dropped the biggest hint yet towards the design of Discovery Sport, with the debut of a new camouflage wrap confirming that the new compact SUV will be available with 5+2 seating.
As if ‘peeling back’ the outer layer of the vehicle, the camouflage reveals that the Discovery Sport will in fact have the option of two seats in the third row, enhancing its versatility and appeal as a compact, family SUV.
Prototype cars sporting the new camouflage design left Halewood, UK, where the Discovery Sport will be manufactured, to embark on final testing and development activity across several continents.
"As you would expect from a Discovery, the versatile Discovery Sport will feature optional 5+2 seating, offering spacious load space and configurable seating, while still retaining a more compact footprint than traditional 5-seat SUVs," said Gerry McGovern, Design Director and Chief Creative Officer for Land Rover.
Discovery Sport will go on sale alongside the existing Discovery in 2015.
