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.”
