KGP Photography's man in the United Kingdom caught a less-camouflaged prototype for the all-new Land Rover Discovery Sport, providing their best look yet at the model that will replace Land Rover's Freelander (in Europe) and the LR2 (in the United States). The new Discovery Sport mixes Range Rover's new design language with design cues found on the company's Land Rover Vision concept, which bowed at this past spring's New York Auto Show.
The latest prototype gives an uncovered look at the new Discovery's grille design, and a less-clad view of the C- and D-pillar interplay. The new Disco will be offered as a five-seat model, along with a newly available seven-seat configuration, which will help broaden the appeal and marketability of the LR2-replacement. The new Discovery is expected to adopt an all-aluminum construction that will help shed weight and improve performance and handling amid a crowded, hyper-competitive market segment.
