Jaguar Land Rover will launch the new Discovery Sport in India on September 2 this year. Bookings for this premium SUV have already begun.
The Discovery Sport is underpinned by a lighter platform and sports the company's latest design philosophy. The new SUV comes equipped with many segment leading features like the optional 5+2 versatile seating configuration, terrain response, park assist, and the nine-speed automatic transmission among other functions.
Its TD4 150PS engine produces 148bhp of power and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. The more powerful TD4 180PS diesel mill churns out 178bhp of power and comes paired to the nine-speed automatic transmission.
Rohit Suri, President, Jaguar Land Rover India (JLRIL), said, "The new Discovery sport is a premium SUV especially designed to invoke the adventure gene in our customers and help them enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle with family and friends, reassured by Land Rover's unparalleled four-wheel-drive technology. The launch of the new Discovery Sport in September will mark another significant milestone in the expansion of Land Rover's product offering in India."
Jaguar Land Rover began local production of the new Discovery Sport in India this year. Since the manufacturer will sell this SUV as a CKD product, we can expect a very competitive pricing for the same.
