Land Rover Discovery Sport spied image

The upcoming Land Rover Discovery Sport has been recently spied while it was being tested out on the Nurburgring.

Previously known as the Freelander, the future Land Rover Discovery Sport is making a step forward in its development as the British based automaker has recently tested it on the “Green Hell”. The model in question has grown in size compared to its predecessor and it should be way better than the current version considering the fact that it will be based on the same platform which is underpinning the five-door variant of the Range Rover Evoque.

The styling of the Land Rover Discovery Sport will be heavily influenced by the Evoque and also by its larger brother, the Range Rover Sport. This basically means that it will be getting a prominent front grille, flanked by the sweptback headlights. The model in question will also be getting a sloping roofline, a dual exhaust system and a tailgate mounted spoiler. As far as the engine lineup goes, the vehicle is believed to carry over the units from the Evoque, including the 150 HP 2.2L diesel, the 190 HP 2.2 liter diesel or the 240 HP 2.0 liter petrol. More details on the Discovery Sport remain unknown for the moment.
