FIVE reasons why the Land Rover Discovery Sport is the ultimate road trip companion for you and your family


1. It’s a Land Rover!
The Land Rover badge is only fitted to the fittest British off-roaders in the market. And the Land Rover Discovery Sport is no exception. Thanks to a 4WD powertrain, Terrain Response System and 600mm wading depth, among many other features, the Discovery Sport is truly a vehicle that you can go anywhere with, anytime.

2. You can enjoy the outdoors in luxury
It may be a Land Rover but that doesn’t mean the Discovery Sport is all about getting mud in your boots and sand in your face. The cabin is very well-appointed with a leather upholstery, electrically-adjustable front seats and eight-inch touchscreen for infotainment purposes. A 17-speaker Meridian Auto System and panoramic roof also feature on the options list.

3. There’s space for everyone
The Land Rover Discovery Sport boasts a unique 5+2 seating configuration which can either seat seven passengers or transform into a 1,698-litre load space with all seats folded down. Whether you plan to take the entire family on an interstate journey or haul your recreational equipment – bicycles, cooler boxes, sports gear – the flexible cabin will ensure that nothing gets left behind. No additional luggage charges here.

4. Power meets fuel efficiency
You wouldn’t want to load your car with seven passengers plus luggage only to struggle to make it up a hill. The Land Rover Discovery Sport makes sure you’re never short of grunt with two powerful and efficient engines – a 240PS/340Nm 2.0-litre petrol mill and a 190PS/420Nm turbodiesel. Both engines are linked to a silky-smooth nine-speed automatic transmission.

5. Safety, safety, safety. In more ways than one. 
The only thing more important than all of the above is the safety of all lives on board. The Land Rover Discovery Sport keeps your loved ones secure with seven airbags, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Traction Control (ETC), Hill Start Assist, Roll Stability Control (RSC), Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and more. It is also a very safe buy in general as it comes with the Land Rover Care program made up of a five-year/150,000km warranty, five-year/80,000km free scheduled maintenance and three years of roadside assistance. You’ll never have to worry behind the wheel again.
