Land Rover Program Director Murray Dietsch has revealed the company doesn't have any plans for a high-performance Discovery Sport SVR.

While the executive downplayed the possibility of an SVR variant, he hinted the company could still offer a performance-oriented model.

He declined to go into specifics but Motoring is reporting the company could offer the model with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder Ingenium engine that develops more than 295 bhp (220 kW). There are also rumors of a high-performance 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine that could produce "significantly" more than 188 bhp (140 kW) and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque.
