Our friends at Jaguar Land Rover are keeping busy these days.
With multiple vehicles under development for Land Rover, it's gotta be a bit hectic over there. That's because we've seen at least three different versions of what is rumored to be the Freelander's replacement.
Of course one of them could be the all-new Jaguar CX17 under wraps but we cannot be sure.
This time though, it seems more information has been leaked out — or speculated — by the U.K's Auto Express. According to the auto pub, it has shots of the upcoming Discovery Sport set to appear at the 2014 Paris Motor Show come October. First time I am hearing about the Discovery Sport.
Word on the street suggests that this vehicle will replace the Freelander and over seven-passenger seating. IF that's true, I have an idea of what JLR considers seven passengers and it's really a five plus none.
That's besides the point though, and that's because it has obtained the very FIRST images of the Discovery Sport's interior. Featuring a manual gearbox and a largely disguised space, from what we can see it doesn't look too far off the current path.
Considering the Discovery Vision Concept was seen sporting that large, vertical center stack screen for infotainment, we were expecting to see this become reality sooner. Perhaps we shouldn't hold our breath OR this is a mule's interior.
Stay tuned, we'll keep an eye out for this.
This picture reveals the interior of the new Land Rover Discovery Sport for the first time. The Discovery Sport is Land Rover’s new compact seven-seater model, which will replace the current Freelander in 2015, slotting beneath the new full-size Land Rover Discovery 5 in the British 4x4 maker’s family.
The image reveals that the Discovery Sport will tone down much of the futuristic, minimalist design that featured on the Land Rover Discovery Vision concept car revealed at the 2014 New York Motor Show. However, familiar Land Rover cabin cues remain, like the large central touchscreen display, the tall, upright dashboard, and the hooded instrument dials fitted into deep Evoque-style lenses...
