Eleven Paris Motor Show models to watch in 2015

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.
