2015 LAND ROVER DISCOVERY SPORT CONFIRMED

Another rumour gets filed in the ‘confirmed’ drawer this week, with Land Rover confirming it will replace the Freelander with a new Discovery Sport model.

Coming hot on the heels of yesterday’s Discovery Vision concept unveiling, today’s news builds design boss Gerry McGovern’s earlier comments that hinted a wider Discovery family.

Due in 2015 - and spied testing in recent weeks - the Freelander-replacing Discovery Sport will be the first model to wear Land Rover’s all-new styling language, teased with this week’s smooth Vision concept.

Land Rover describes the Discovery Sport as an “all-new premium compact SUV”, with McGovern saying at today’s New York Auto Show that it will be “the most versatile and capable” model in its class.

Technical details are still to be revealed, although we can likely expect the Sport to ride on a version of the Range Rover Evoque’s LR-MS platform - a hugely revised evolution of the Ford EUCD platform that underpins the outgoing Freelander 2.

It has also been reported that the Discovery Sport will be offered with two wheelbase lengths, with five- and seven-seat configurations - adding credence to reports that a longer ‘Grand Evoque’ is also in the works.

Watch for more details on the Discovery Sport - and the larger Discovery - to surface over the coming year.
