New Land Rover Discovery Sport on the way

The new Discovery Sport, described by Land Rover as the world's most versatile and capable premium compact SUV, is on the way in January.

With an entry level price of €37,100 for the 2.2 TD4 S model, the new Discovery Sport features 5+2 seating in a footprint no larger than existing 5-seat premium SUVs.

The Discovery Sport will be available in four trim levels – S, SE, HSE and HSE Luxury.

Eddie Kavanagh, general manager of Land Rover Ireland, told us: “The Discovery Sport is competitively priced at €37,100. As you would expect from a Land Rover, it offers supreme versatility with a very generous and adaptable loadspace in the option 5+2 seating. And with Land Rover’s terrain response technology, it has been engineered to meet any challenge.

“We’re confident the Discovery Sport will be a big hit with our customers, both old and new, and we look forward to welcoming them to dealer showrooms in the coming weeks.”

The Discovery Sport will be equipped with a range of four-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel engines. Both the all-alloy Si4 2.0-litre petrol engine and the 2.2-litre turbo-diesel feature stop-start technology, high-pressure direct injection, low-friction internal components and smart regenerative charging for outstanding performance and economy.

Later in 2015, Land Rover says a highly efficient ED4 turbo-diesel engine will join the range with claimed CO2 emissions of 119g/km. Both nine- speed automatic and six-speed manual transmissions are available.

The Land Rover Discovery Sport has also just been awarded the maximum five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP.
