Land Rover has dropped the biggest hint yet towards the design of the successor to the Freelander, the 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.
