The China-made Discovery Sport is the same inside-out as the U.K. variant, nothing is stretched or extra big in any other way. Lone engine is the Ford-sourced 2.0 turbo ‘EcoBoost’ with 240 horses. This engine is set to be replaced by a newly developed JLR engine in the near future, but when exactly is unclear. Earlier on we also saw photos of a Chery engine in a Freelander, but it seems that project hasn’t made much progress yet. The Discovery Sport is the successor of the Freelander 2.

The Range Rover brand is very strong in China and the locally made Evoque has been a great success. Expectations thus are sky high for this new Discovery Sport.

Badge simply says ‘Chery Land Rover’, without even a ‘-‘.
