The 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport is coming to a Land Rover dealer near you, adding yet another model to the brand’s growing lineup. Departing from the safari-style roof design popularized by the original Discovery and the subsequent LR3 and LR4, the Discovery Sport instead features a more traditional design — though it retains several Land Rover styling cues.
The Discovery Sport will be offered with two engines: a 240-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, and a 2.2-liter turbodiesel 4-cylinder. Both manual and automatic transmissions will be offered, but we suspect U.S. shoppers will have to make do with only the automatic and the gas-powered engine.
Like all Land Rover models, the Discovery Sport will offer standard all-wheel drive. It also boasts third-row seating, though the back row might be a little tight on account of the Discovery Sport’s small size. Pricing for the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport starts at $37,995 before shipping. Sales will start early next year.
