New Land Rover Discovery Review

The New Land Rover Discovery Review by Car Magazine is out. You can read the full review here. In summary it gets the thumbs up from the car journalists who feel that it is filling the hole left by the departing Defender until its replacement arrives in 2016. Practicality is offered with 7 (yes 7) seats, but with the additional sparkle you get from the modern Land Rover design team. This extra bling is offered by our very own illuminated tread plates that give a crisp white illumination. When you look at the vehicle you can’t help but see a genetic link with the hugely popular Range Rover Evoque. This link continues inside with running gear, engine etc.

The size meets Car Magazine’s approval as well, given the fact that a full size Range Rover on British roads can at times be challenging for a daily commute. “A Chelsea Tractor it is not. As you would expect from JLR the quality is exceptional. It is very well built and a beautifully finished cabin. Car Magazines verdict:

“It’s hard to envisage any reasons why the Land Rover Discovery Sport won’t sell well. Yes, styling may be slightly generic for some and some users may still balk at the launch engine’s mid-ranking CO2 (166g/km) and economy (44.8mpg) claims beaten by the Germans. But on first impressions the Disco Sport is an incredibly well rounded package.”

Rolls Royce embrace the SUV market

Now that Rolls Royce embrace the SUV market, does it mean that we will see the THE most luxurious SUV on t he market? You better believe it. The new project (announced last month here) has the code name Cullinan which is the diamond that was discovered in South Africa in 1905 and is now mounted on the Queen’s sceptre as part of the Crown Jewels. When you give you project a working title like that you can be sure the end result will be nothing short of stunning.

Rolls Royce have made it quite clear early on that the decision to venture into this area is  “because many of our discerning customers have urged us to develop this car”. And lets be honest, when you are paying at least £250,000GBP for a car, there is every chance that just about anything you say to your supplier of said vehicle will be listened to. However this is a very refreshing approach from Rolls Royce.

In terms of what to expect is anyone’s guess and there is sure be a constant trickle of teasers. But with a potential price tag of up to half a million pounds it will likely to be a THE most luxurious SUV as you would expect from RR.The interior styling will be exquisite, as will the on board experience.
