No more teasers and leakage! The new 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport is finally here, showing off its cool new looks, smaller size, innovative 5+2 seating, and refined interior. The new Disco has adopted the downsizing philosophy to become more efficient, but LR promises its “spirit of adventure” is alive and kicking.

With a new design that is half Evoque, half RR Sport, Land Rover Discovery Sport is certainly a good-looking SUV. The key point in designing this car was to arrive at the best compromise between a relatively small size and ample interior space, hence the 5+2 seating configurability.

The new model also comes with totally revised suspension featuring multi-link rear axle and long-travel springs to be both comfortable and engaging to drive. After all, it is called the Discovery Sport. The traditional features of the Disco, like the high-riding driving position and the amazing off-road capabilities are still intact.

One area the new Land Rover Discovery Sport is head and shoulders above the old model is technology. The 2015 model comes with a first-in-class pedestrian airbag, autonomous emergency braking, and a state-of-the-art bodyshell featuring both ultra-high-strength steel and lightweight aluminium. What’s more, you get an all-new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and standard tilt-and-slide row-two seating for maximum interior configurability.

2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport will launch in the UK in January 2015 with a 2.2 litre SD4 turbodiesel engine with 190 PS featuring stop-start technology. Both 9-speed automatic and 6-speed manual transmissions are available. Prices start from £32,395 for this model and £30,000 for eD4 variant which will come out later on.
