Land Rover says an all-new premium compact SUV called the Discovery Sport will be the first production model to take cues and features from the Discovery Vision concept. It will arrive at dealerships in 2015. The Discovery Sport is the first member of an all-new Discovery family of vehicles.

“This will be the most versatile and capable SUV in its segment and is the first expression of the Discovery Vision concept unveiled here in New York,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover design director and chief creative officer, at the auto show.

Land Rover’s current entry in the premium compact SUV space is the LR2, an SUV in need of a redesign/replacement compared to the similarly sized and more modern Land Rover Evoque as well as other compact luxury SUVs.
