The video starts with a close up shot of an aviation mask commonly worn by fighter pilots while audio of a shuttle launch countdown plays in the background. On the “mark” of the count down, an interior center dash shot of the new Discovery Sport is shown. The large navigation unit sits nicely between two sets of hard buttons while the Stop/Start button is extremely prominent as it moves off screen.
A few scenes later, Land Rover finally reveals the new 5+2 seating configuration. The short few seconds give insight into how the seating arrangement can easily be altered to allow maximum seating space and plenty of cargo room.
“Versatility is a fundamental element of the Discovery family and with optional 5+2 seating, generous load space and configurable seating the new Discovery Sport truly deserves to wear the Discovery badge. What this footage also showcases is the high cabin quality and craftsmanship of the highly desirable Discovery Sport,” Gerry McGovern, Design Director and Chief Creative Officer said about the interior of the upcoming Discovery Sport.
Other noticeable features shown in the video include the luxurious full panoramic glass roof and large door mid bass speakers. While the glass roof might not open, the headliner looks like it fully retracts to allow an unmatched view of the sky. Also, there is no name plate located on the speakers themselves, but due to the current relationshipLand Rover has with speaker maker Meridian, one can assume an optional Hi Fi Meridian system should be available.
After noticing all key features of the upcoming Discovery Sport, an underlining reason for this video was to pinpoint the relationship between Land Rover and Virgin Galactic. As the video comes to an end, the key fob for the Discovery Sport floats through the cabin of the Discovery Sport while a Virgin shuttle is in tow followed by the slogan “Are you ready to discovery?”
