The new model comes in as the small luxury offering from Land Rover, offering a 5+2 seating layout, plenty of in-car technology and luxury we’ve come to expect from Land Rover, and a striking exterior design.

Kicking off the range will be the TD4, consisting of a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder producing 110kW of power. Stepping up to the SD4 gets you a 140kW version of the same 420Nm engine. Both are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual.

For the petrol enthusiasts, the Si4 comes with a 2.0-litre turbo producing 177kW. It’s only available with the nine-speed auto and all-wheel drive. The Si4 is only available in SE A trim level. Others come in SE and HSE trim.

Highlight technologies include Land Rover’s Terrain Response system with gravel, grass and snow driving modes. There’s also Roll Stability Control, headrest-mounted iPad holders, a power tailgate, and a full panoramic glass roof. In typical Land Rover fashion, there are loads of options to choose from.

Michael Winkler Jaguar Land Rover Australia managing director, spoke about the new model in a statement, saying,

“The Discovery Sport is the perfect vehicle for the Australian terrain and climate. Not only is it capable and luxurious, its price point makes it available to even more Australians who want to enter the compact premium SUV market.”
