Testing something. Pretty hard to garner much info from this photo. Only thing that may give us a clue as to what it is testing is the fact that it is driving in a city center and not some test track. Anyone want to make a guess at what's being put to the test?

Some type of driver assistance tech possibly?

Could very well be testing how it is with city driving, since after all that's what it has to do or else no one will buy it.

yes but the truck has been launched, why the camo?

A drivers assitance feature does not require Camo, no matter how early in the development cycle. Thats software based and can be retrofitted at the factory to an existing model for surreptitious testing.

Disco Sport is based on the Evoque, LR did 750,000 miles in nearly 200 different prototypes do you guys seriously think LR forgot to make sure it might be ok in a city centre?

Logically I would say this is more marketing than anything, its an attention grabber...

Is it possible that there could be another variant of the Disco Sport? Something more luxurious or perhaps a performance variant?

Just like how Range Rover has an HSE Sport Autobiography model... i'd like to see them do something special along the lines of that for the Discovery.

Discovery is going to be a full brand? So does that mean there will be other models and variants? What else are they going to come out with?
