This popular Land Rover was always designed to replace the Freelander and was based on the Range Rover Evoque. With the boxier lines of a traditional SUV, rather than the Evoque’s coupé-esque silhouette, the Discovery Sport is a proper family-friendly car.
The 178bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine is the mainstay of the range. There are two other diesel options and, from 2017, a couple of 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol joined the line-up. You get the choice of five or seven seats, but being a Land Rover, four-wheel drive is available as standard on all but the entry-level diesel.
I can understand why the Discovery Sport is so loved as it demonstrates Land Rovers amazing ability to offer unrivalled all-terrain capabilities with the versatility for up to seven people with a premium interior.
Land Rover has sold more than 350,000 Discovery Sports globally since its introduction in 2014, with 126,078 models sold in 2017 – Wow that’s pretty impressive! That is the best single model annual sales in Land Rovers 70 year history!
Things are going well for Land Rover
To celebrate Land Rover are producing a Discovery Sport Landmark edition available in three colours: Narvik Black, Corris Grey and Yulong White, all crowned with a Carpathian Grey contrast roof. It features a sporty and dynamic front bumper, with Graphite Atlas exterior accents and 19in Style 521 ‘Mantis’ wheels in Gloss Dark Grey. The interior features Ebony grained leather seats and an Ebony headliner, complemented by dark grey aluminium finishers around the centre stack.
The Discovery Sport landmark boasts clean and efficient 2.0-litre EU6 Ingenium engines in two variants: Td4 180PS diesel or Si4 240PS petrol. As part of the continual enhancement of Land Rover vehicle lines, all Discovery Sport powertrains are now equipped with particulate filters to make them even cleaner.
Do you fancy one?
If you do fancy ordering one I suggest you act quickly, with sales as they are I do not anticipate them being around for long!
