An image purported to be the first look at Land Rover’s new Discovery Vision has surfaced online, ahead of the concept’s New York Auto Show debut this week.
It remains unclear if this photo is authentic, although its design appears to match the teasers released in the past week.
Drawing inspiration from the Range Rover line, the Discovery Vision is expected to preview a new and more streamlined design language for the traditionally conservative Land Rover.
Details are thin on the ground, but we could potentially see this new concept appear in the coming year as a replacement for the LR4 Discovery.
Launched in 2009, the current LR4 entered as an extensive upgrade to the LR3 model that debuted in 2004.
The new styling language is also expected to flow through to a replacement for the Freelander, which could - according to reports overseas - become the ‘Discovery Sport’ in its next iteration.
Watch for the Discovery Vision concept to make its official debut this week.
