The SUV takes many cues from the Discovery Vision Concept, including the bulging wheel arches, head lamp shape, fender vents, tail lamp shape and upswept C-pillars blacked out at the top. The traditional Land Rover script across the bonnet and tailgate is replaced by Discovery badging.

The safety of the vehicle is bolstered with a Volvo V40-aping pedestrian airbag and an autonomous emergency braking. The vehicle will be offered with Jaguar Land Rover’s staple 240 PS 2.0 liter direct-injected turbo petrol and 190 PS 2.2 liter turbo diesel four cylinder engines. Both versions feature low-friction internal components, stop-start technology and regenerative charging.

The vehicle should be available for sale in 2015. Later in the same year, a highly efficient ED4 turbo diesel emitting 114 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer will be offered.
