2014 Paris Auto Show: Discovery Sport's uniquely British Unveiling

By ,

True to its heritage, Land Rover unveiled their brand new premium compact SUV ahead of the 2014 Paris Auto Show in a way that only this particular manufacturer could: Riding a barge on the River Seine, a pair of Land Rover Discovery Sport models made their dramatic entrance along with seven pairs of oversized brightly coloured Wellington boots.

What's the connection? Well, the brand new LR Discovery Sport offers a 5+2 configuration, meaning it can seat up to seven if need be. To further exemplify its unique nature in the Land Rover lineup, the Discovery Sport was the only LR on display at the manufacturer's booth during the media preview day at the 2014 Paris Auto Show.

Produced in Land Rover's award-winning manufacturing facility in Halewood, Liverpool, the Discovery Sport will go on sale in 2015 (along with the 7-seater Land Rover Discovery) in more than 170 countries.
