The Land Rover Discovery Sport has been under development for quite some time now. The British carmaker has even released a teaser video and fresh details about the comprehensive testing programme for this new car model which is a direct successor to the Freelander.
According to official reports, 181 prototypes were built and almost 750,000 miles were covered during the testing phase over all sorts of terrain and in challenging situations. More than 11,000 tests were completed, including subjecting the Discovery Sport to very low and high temperatures as well as to water depths, in order to ensure astonishing off-road capabilities.
The new Discovery Sport was built by Land Rover in collaboration with Virgin Galactic and the aim was to provide refinement and precision.
Land Rover Discovery Sport is set to be revealed on September 3rd before being showcased at the 2014 Paris Auto Show in October. The new compact SUV will reportedly hit the dealerships in the early 2015.
