Report: Land Rover downplays Discovery Sport SVR, but performance model possible

Motoring.com in Australia reports Land Rover’s program director, Murray Dietsch, disclosed that a SVR version of the Discovery Sport is unlikely, however a performance-oriented model may still happen.

For those of you who’ve been living under a rock, Land Rover and Jaguar formed a Special Vehicle Operations department for high-performance and custom variants of cars from both portfolios, kind similarly to BMW’s M-Division or Mercedes-Benz’s AMG branch. An SVR version would be similar to the Range Rover Sport SVR.

Dietsch didn’t go into specifics obviously, but he did confirm the Discovery Sport willb e offered with Jaguar-Land Rover’s new line of Ingenium engines, with the highlight in the Discovery being a 2.0L turbocharged four-banger with more than 295hp on tap.
