Land Rover Discovery Sport Unveiled

This is the new Land Rover Discovery Sport, the first model in the second phase of Land Rover’s three-pillared regeneration plan. It is the first of several vehicles under the family-oriented Discovery sub-brand. The baby Discovery will replace the Freelander. The model features a 5+2 seating configuration just like the existing 5-seat premium SUVs.

The tidy SUV will be available in three engine types – a 2.0-litre petrol and a 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine with different capacity. The petrol engine will make 240 bhp, while the diesel models will generate 150 and 190 bhp. The engine is mated to a slick nine-speed auto or six-speed manual, four or two-wheel drive transmission. New Land Rover innovations debut in the Discovery Sport, including available Autonomous Emergency Braking and a new touchscreen infotainment system.

As part of its commercial launch, the British automaker is holding a world-wide “Land Rover Galactic Discovery” competition, in which four winners will be offered a space trip on Virgin Galactic. The new model will be produced at Land Rover’s award-winning manufacturing facility at Halewood, Liverpool. It goes on sale in January 2015 in the UK alongside the existing seven-seat Land Rover Discovery.
