Land Rover is teasing its upcoming compact SUV the Discovery Sport in a new set of photos, which confirm that the small crossover will have a third row of seating.
The camouflage on this prototype has been printed to look like it is being peeled back, showing off the two small seats that will be fit in the back of the new Discovery Sport. In the UK, the seven seat configuration will come standard, while U.S. configurations haven’t been announced.
Launching in 2015, the Discovery Sport will be sold alongside the existing Discovery in the UK, and it is still unclear whether or not it will replace the LR2 in the North American market.
Styling will be influenced by the Discovery Vision Concept which was unveiled at the 2014 New York Auto Show. That car packed some innovative features like the ability to be piloted remotely via a smart-phone app and a heads-up display that projected the terrain below the vehicle on the hood of the car.
