Land Rover Introduces New Discovery Line with a Powerful New Compact SUV

Land Rover brings a new line of premium power, agility, and efficiency vehicles to drivers with the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport. 

Land Rover Cars LogoLand Rover is bringing a bold new definition to the concept of compact SUVs and has finally released all the juicy details.  As the first member of the new Discovery family of vehicles, the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport features an array of safety, performance, and technology components in a progressively compact design.

Strategic Power and Efficiency

It’s no secret, Land Rover drivers will appreciate the power and strength of the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport.  The premium luxury vehicle features a 240hp turbocharged 2-liter engine as well as a nine-speed automatic transmission.  The lightweight body shell is made from high-strength steel and strategically placed aluminum including the hood, front fenders, roof, and tailgate to provide optimal stability, safety, and efficiency.

The 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport pulls its power from a 2.0-liter gasoline engine featuring a low-inertia turbocharger and direct fuel injection.  It pours out 240hp at 5,500rpm and produces an incredible 250lb-ft of torque.  The vehicle provides drivers with enough power to make any drive exciting, getting you where you need to go with speed and agility.  Better yet, it doesn’t sacrifice efficiency.  The battery is recharged during periods of deceleration and a sheet metal exhaust manifold helps the engine warm up faster, reducing emissions during short distances.

The nine-speed automatic transmission is the same one featured in the current Range Rover Evoque.  It allows for a smooth response and powerful mid-range acceleration.  Best of all, drivers have the option of using steering wheel paddle shifters for more control and precision while driving.  Another innovative feature includes the adaptive shifting system which matches the transmission’s behavior to the driver’s inputs to optimize efficiency and control no matter the speed or style of driving.

Control for Any Terrain

In addition to power, the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport also features agility and control thanks to the standard all-wheel drive and available Terrain Response® technology.  Engineered for precision, the rear suspension is mounted on a very lightweight yet stiff sub-frame for high quality steering response.  It also features optional Autonomous Emergency Braking to help drivers avoid collisions in the event of an emergency.

Compact Design

Perhaps the most enticing feature is that all of this incredible power, precision, and refinement is fit into one remarkably compact SUV.  Capable of seating seven, the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport interior is luxurious and amazingly roomy.  Yet, the vehicle is only 180.7 inches in length allowing you to fit into those tight spaces.  The design places the wheels at the outer corners for improved stability yielding an assertive stance that is hard not to love.

Look for the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport to appear in showrooms early in 2015 starting a base price of just $37,995.
