NEW ADDITION TO THE DISCO FAMILY: The new Land Rover Discovery Sport will be launched in 2015. Image: Automedia


Land Rover launched its revised Discovery and Evoque during an epic journey that celebrates its “go anywhere” ethos – a true African safari from Botswana to Zambia.

Land Rover’s new Discovery Sport, formerly known as the next Freelander, has been spotted undergoing testing at the Nurburgring.

The redesigned crossover is significantly larger than its predecessor and will reportedly be based on the same platform that underpins the Range Rover Evoque.

The styling is hard to make out but you can clearly see design cues derived from the Evoque and Range Rover Sport. As a result, the model has a prominent grille, flanked by sweptback headlights.

Spy images show a sloping roofline, a spoiler and dual exhaust system.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but could carryover from the Evoque. This means choices could include a 2.2-litre diesel and 2.0-litre petrol.


The replacement for the Land Rover Freelander will become a member of an extended Discovery family, according to the automaker. The new model, based on the Evoque, is expected to be launched in 2015.

The Freelander badge will be dropped as it becomes an extension of the Discovery.

Due to government and safety regulations, the venerable Defender  will also be chopped. Land Rover announced it will cease production of its iconic 4x4 in 2015.
