Land Rover Discovery Sport Prototypes Put to the Test
Next year, Land Rover will re-release the Discovery namesake to replace the aging LR2. The brand new Land Rover Discovery Sport was put through its paces harder than ever before. With 181 prototypes covering 750,000 miles, the 2015 Discovery Sport is ready for anything and everything.
According to Truck Yeah, the 181 Discovery Sport prototypes covered about 750,000 miles by completing 11,720 tests that included driving in diverse places such as the Arctic and Dubai with temperatures ranging from -34.6 degrees to 124 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Discovery Sport was also tested at a wide range of altitudes including a maximum height of 13,123 feet, which is about the same height as seven and a half Willis Towers from bottom to the top of the tip.
The 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport is expected to be able to forge through water as deep as 23.6 inches, conquer inclines of 40 degrees, and declines of 45 degrees. Remember, these are numbers found with the prototype, and therefore the actual manufactured vehicle might have slightly different figures.
Land Rover does not have a specific date for when the Discovery Sport will be released, but it will feature optional Transparent Bonnet and Remote Control Drive; two incredible options one needs to see to believe.
