Ahead of its official reveal, Land Rover uncovers innovative camouflaged Discovery Sport New compact SUV remains true to Discovery family with a third row of rear seats as standard in the UK Latest camouflage wrap gives clearest view yet of vehicle’s design Prototype vehicles leave Jaguar Land Rover’s Halewood plant to embark on final testing stages

WHITLEY, UK -- July 29, 2014: Land Rover has dropped the biggest hint yet towards the design of Discovery Sport, with the debut of a new camouflage wrap confirming that the new compact SUV arrives as standard with 5+2 seating in the UK.

As if ‘peeling back’ the outer layer of the vehicle, the camouflage reveals that the Discovery Sport will in fact have 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 5+2 seating in the UK, 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.

The New Discovery Sport compact SUV will go on sale complementing the existing Discovery in 2015.
