Land Rover to launch the Discovery Sport in India tomorrow

Land Rover to launch the Discovery Sport in India tomorrow

The Land Rover Discovery Sport is going to be launched in India tomorrow. Based on a completely new platform, the Discovery Sport is the first member of the all-new Discovery hierarchy.

The new Discovery Sport ditches the Discovery's boxy design in favour of a curved and elegant shape, inspired by the Discovery Vision concept.  The sleeker and stylish design aims to give it a more modern and sportier look, rather than the absolute rugged approach that the current Discovery takes. Like the new Range Rover, the Discovery Sport gets a layered headlamp and tail lamp structure, which look like expensive ornaments. Even inside, the car gets a classy design which makes it look like a truly upmarket SUV. It gets a versatile 5+2 seating arrangement, which boosts the practicality of the Discovery Sport.

The Discovery Sport is built on a revised version of the LR2-based steel body shell, with new multi-link rear suspension. In India, it will be offered with the 2.0-litre four-cylinder TD4 diesel engine, in two states of tune. The TD4 150PS engine produces 148bhp and 380Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. The more powerful TD4 180PS on the other hand, puts out 178bhp and 430Nm of torque through a nine-speed automatic transmission, first seen in the Range Rover Evoque.

We expect the new Discovery Sport to be launched with a price tag in the range of Rs 55 lakh to Rs 75 lakh. It will compete with other SUVs like the BMW X3 and the Audi Q5.
