Reports earlier this year suggested Tata is planning to take advantage of its Jaguar Land Rover ownership, by making a Land Rover Discovery Sport of its own.

The Discovery Sport was unveiled midway through last year as a replacement for the Land Rover Freelander, and the new model is due to arrive in Australia from next month.

Tata appears pleased with the Disco Sport’s design, as a report from Autocar India suggests a budget-priced version is on the cards; wearing Tata badges.

While we’re no closer to knowing if such a model will come to be, independent artist Theo Chin has given us a possible preview of how that model may look.

The Tata Hexa concept from the Geneva Motor Show has been morphed onto the base of the Discovery Sport, giving the combined models the same stance as the Land Rover.

The report predicted such an outcome from the model-sharing project, but styling for the Tata version when and if it hits the road is believed to be vastly different from the Land Rover.

Tata is understood to be looking for ways to expand its SUV range, and the well-received Discovery Sport - although in its early days - could be a logical place to start.

Land Rover’s engine range would reportedly be ditched for cheaper alternatives aimed at keeping prices down, with one option rumoured to be a 2.0 litre diesel engine from Fiat.

A 2017 release date has been suggested, but whether the new Tata model - codenamed Q501 - would be offered outside the Indian market is unclear at this stage.
