All-new 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport is here, priced from under £30,000

Land Rover has unveiled the all-new Discovery Sport, which will complement the existing Discovery.

The new Discovery Sport basically replaces the aging Freelander LR2 and is the new entry-level offering in the Land Rover range. The production model was previewed earlier this year with the Discovery Vision Concept with the styling heavily influenced by the design that Range Rover Evoque introduced few years ago.

The Discovery Sport offers standard 5+2 seating in the UK, while roughly the same size as existing 5-seat premium SUVs like Mercedes GLK or Audi Q5.

Even though it is safe to assume most people will only drive it in the city, the Discovery Sport has all it takes to go off-road, offering departure and breakover angles of 25, 31 and 21 degrees respectively, alongside with Terrain Response technology, and the ability to wade to 600mm. Not bad!

The interior is clearly not as interesting as was shown on the Vision Concept, but it comes nicely equipped with an all-new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and standard tilt-and-slide row-two seating.

From launch only a 188bhp 2.2-litre SD4 turbodiesel linked to either 9-speed automatic or 6-speed manual is offered.

later next year a more fuel efficient two wheel drive eD4 turbodiesel engine will join the range with CO2 emissions from just 119g/km.

The SD4 is priced from £32,395 and available from January 2015 and the eD4 will be priced from under £30,000.
