2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport vs. Land Rover LR2
Land Rover introduced its smallest SUV that will replace the LR2, aka Freelander 2, in some countries. The 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport takes its design cues from the Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept, which will replace the Land Rover LR4. The new Discovery family appears more streamlined than its predecessors, breaking away from the boxy look that has become synonymous with Land Rover.
The all-new Discovery Sport sits lower to the ground, and is narrower, yet longer than the outgoing LR2. The two share nothing in common as the Discovery Sport is based on the Range Rover Evoque platform, and is now comparable in appearance and size to its twin. While the Evoque is geared toward urban drivers, the two Discovery models are built for the off-road enthusiast.
