We already know the Range Rover Sport is one of the more popular luxury SUVs on the market, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that sister brand Land Rover is coming to market with a brand new Discovery Sport in early 2015.
So, what’s under the hood? Well, for starters, Land Rover announced “a range of 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel engines,” with the all-alloy Si4 2.0-liter petrol engine and the 2.2-liter turbodiesel enabled with stop-start technology and high-pressure direct injection. Then, later in 2015, the company promises a “highly efficient ED4 turbodiesel engine” with “CO2 emissions of just 119g/km.”
The Discovery Sport will be available in 9-speed automatic and 6-speed manual transmissions in two- or four-wheel-drive. The newest Discovery model will have 5+2 seating “in a footprint no larger than existing 5-seat premium SUVs,” Land Rover announced.
