Land Rover first introduced the Discovery Vision Concept at the New York Auto Expo earlier this year and then later showcased it at the Beijing Auto Expo in April. Now, the British luxury SUV maker has released a new teaser video of the 2015 Discovery Sport.
Speaking about the launch of the Discovery Sport next year, Dr. Ralph Speth, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover said, “The Land Rover Discovery Sport is the next in a line of exciting new products to come from Jaguar Land Rover. I am delighted that Halewood – and Liverpool – has been selected for this new investment. It is totally deserved, and strengthens the ‘special relationship’ that bonds Jaguar Land Rover to this great day.”
Previewed by the Discovery Vision Concept, the production model wears a familiar design and will be available with seating for up to seven passenegers.
According to Land Rover Design Director Gerry McGovern, “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.”
Land Rover hasn’t released the specifications but reports suggest that the model is expected to be offered with a variety of petrol and diesel Ingenium four-cylinder engines. Jaguar Land Rover has previously said the first mass production engine will be a turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel that will be “one of the most efficient and responsive” in its segment.
The new Land Rover Discovery Sport is expected to debut in Paris Motor Show this year.
