Jaguar Land Rover Unveils New Discovery Sport
Sep 3 14
Jaguar Land Rover has revealed images and details of its replacement for the Freelander, the Discovery Sport, which will be shown at the Paris Motor Show (France) next month. The images show a vehicle that shares the design language of the second generation Range Rover Sport, but which has been adapted for the different nature of the Discovery brand. The vehicle features a "5+2" seating arrangement which is said to create "ultimate use of interior space with versatility. In the UK market, the vehicle will be initially equipped with the 2.2-litre SD4 diesel engine producing 190PS, available with a nine-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission with four-wheel drive. However, this will be joined by a two-wheel drive variant with eD4 diesel engine later in 2015 which will be capable of CO2 emissions of just 119 g/km. Safety features that will be made available include pedestrian airbag and autonomous emergency braking, while comfort features will include an all-new eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and standard tilt-and-slide row-two seating for maximum interior configurability.
