Yes the earlier designs were more broad faced and butch looking. But McGovern had to make his newer LR designs with lower and more rakish profiles in order to reduce drag and also taking into account increasing pedestrian safety regulations.

Itís priced on the same level as that of the X3 and the Q5 in the UK.
I had spoken to a sales guy at the JLR dealership a while back, he told me that the question with JLR is how theyíll manage to accommodate the assembly of the Discovery Sport in India with the launch of the XE.
If they manage to launch this as a CKD, this looks like a very attractive option

This one looks good. Outgoing Freelander is not bad either but I feel it has evolved rather nicely. Less boxier than the current model but still manages to look as solid.

The uniqueness to the RR was the evergreen sturdy boxy design. That evergreen design concept is lost from RR, now it looks like an ordinary SUV, from the pictures posted in the 1st post, the side profile reminds me the Toyota fortuner and the front 3/4th angle reminds me a storme (only God knows whether RR used the Storme or Storme used the leaked RR design).

Guys i spotted a camouflaged Discovery Sport in ring road Bangalore.Sorry could not capture the picture as it passed in opposite direction.
With camouflage it looked like a larger Evoque.

I guess the India launch is somewhere nearby.

That is a bit of a downer actually. If i remember, the outgoing Freelander was just in between a Q3 and a Q5 in terms of pricing (around the 38-45 lakh range). If this new model is going to go upwards towards the 50 lakh range its going to be quite disappointing. Really had my eye on the new Freelander as my next purchase.

Love the looks of it. Yes its disappointing that all Range Rovers and Land Rovers are moving towards the evoque look. Cant complain though.

IMHO the Discovery Sport is looking much better than the Freelander 2. The Freelander 2 does not have the road presence of a Land Rover.

Land Rover has confirmed that they will launch the Discovery Sport SUV in India this year. The launch is set to take place in August 2015. Internationally, the Discovery Sport is offered with both petrol and diesel engines. However, the Indian model is expected to only feature the 2.2-litre diesel and not the Si4 2.0-litre petrol.

Great news. Hopefully the pricing is around 45L (showroom), which would put it just a bit below the Evoque. Would be surprised to see it similarly priced or even higher priced than the Range Rover.

LR has just announced that the new Ingenium diesel engines will be offered in the Discovery Sport – in some markets . The seven-seat off-roader will be offered with the 2.0-liter diesel four, mated to either a manual or automatic transmission, and in two states of tune: one with 148 horsepower and the other with 177. With the more powerful of the two, the Discovery Sport will be able to reach 62 miles per hour in 8.9 seconds and top out at 117 mph, while the most economical version is claimed to return 57.7 miles per gallon (on the European cycle, at any rate).

Guys trust //M on this one!

And its really interesting to see a product which to me looks like a more approachable RR Sport, is loaded with features and seats 7.
What's not making me happy is the engine that will be put on offer in India, its the same unit that was found on the Freelander 2, IMHO it is anything but refined, and sounds really gruff! Definitely doesn't suit a vehicle that will cost upwards of 60 lakh OTR, which, going by the Freelander 2's pricing and that of all newer LRs, I think it definitely will!

Also what about the reliability of the engine and the gearbox? I hear a lot about Land Rovers being unreliable, never heard anything about the cheaper ones though!
