Land Rover is testing the Land Rover Discovery Sport facelift car. This is a mid-cycle update of the model.
The first deliveries of this small luxury crossover started in early 2015. In 2016 it became the best-selling Land Rover model.
This time changes have affected not only the exterior, but the interior and the powertrain too. It’s part of the automaker’s plan to electrify its model range by 2020.
The Land Rover’s D8 platform has been modified for more space and power. It’ll be the same as for the redesigned Range Rover Evoque. We expect the company will offer for both models the same mild plug-in hybrid powertrain based on a 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder engine.
The exterior seems to be more streamlined. The front and rear fascias along with the head optics will be new.
The interior will be also refreshed to keep up with new products from Volvo (XC60) and BMW (X3). The newest infotainment system like in the Range Rover Velar is expected.
The updated 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport should debut early next year and go on sale later on.
