LAND ROVER REVEALS THIRD ROW SEATING FOR DISCOVERY SPORT
JULY 29, 2014
- Ahead of its official reveal, Land Rover releases images of camouflaged Discovery Sport
- New Discovery family compact SUV to feature option of three row seating
- Camouflage wrap gives view of vehicle’s interior design
- Prototype vehicles leave Jaguar Land Rover’s Halewood plant to embark on final testing stages
Land Rover has dropped the biggest hint yet towards the design of Discovery Sport, with a new camouflage wrap that gives a peek into the interior packaging, highlighted by the future compact SUV’s 5+2 available 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.
