A photo showing scale models of the upcoming Land Rover Discovery Sport has surfaced on the web.
After several spy photo sessions and teasers, this is the first time we can look at the model with no camouflage. Already confirmed for production in 2015 in Halewood, UK, it can be seen in two different color schemes, both with glass roof.
The Discovery Sport, described as an "all-new premium compact SUV", will become the first member of the new Discovery family. Set to be revealed in its full glory on September 3rd, it will act as a replacement for the aging Freelander.
It is believed to be based on an extended LR-MS platform of the five-door Range Rover Evoque and to be available with a wide variety of four-cylinder Ingenium gasoline and diesel engines. A range-topping SVR variant could be also in the works and it will likely use an uprated V6 3.0-liter supercharged engine.
