Land Rover Discovery Sport
Land Rover will open order books in January for the Discovery Sport, its replacement for the Freelander and a car that will sustain the upward sales trajectory created by the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport.
It is longer than the Freelander, with new rear suspension and a ‘five-plus-two’ seating format to suit families who’ll need to occasionally transport their children’s friends. Land Rover believes it will attract both the Freelander faithful and a new generation of buyers who wouldn’t have considered a full-size Discovery before.
This SUV is packed with technology, including an advanced terrain response system and a new infotainment package that will spread through the range, and will start at £32,395 rising through four specification grades. It will launch with only a 2.2-litre SD4 diesel all-wheel drive variant, but a 119g/km front-wheel drive ED4 variant with lower running costs will be added later.
