In case you haven’t heard, Land Rover Austin is now serving up the all new, highly anticipated Discovery Sport, and we are here to give you a few reasons why it might just be in your best interest to purchase one of these puppies.
No more boxiness: The Freelander was a satisfactory car for 90s, but we admit its boxy design was starting to look a tad bit dated. With its round futuristic exterior, the Discovery Sport promises to deliver its fair share of head turners.
Seven seats: The Discovery Sport somehow manages to pack an impressive seven seats on the interior. The third row is sure to come in handy for those family outings and cross-country trips. Plus the second row slides and reclines, to make life a little bit more comfortable in the rear.
Technology: This sleek and compact SUV is jam packed with the latest technology, including a wifi hotspot, a package of apps called InControl that can be downloaded to your smartphone, 360-degree camera coverage around the vehicle, plus an eight-inch color touchscreen to control the stunning and user friendly infotainment system.
A blast to drive: Packing a 2.0 liter Turbocharged I-4 with 9-speed automatic transmission, this 240 horsepower chariot will get you to 60 mph in just under 8 seconds and handles/corners with ultimate ease while on the road, helping everyone remain nice and comfy inside.
Tackle any terrain. Like its fellow Land Rover brethren, the Discovery Sport can cope with any topography that most owners will face (including up to two feet of water) – and do so with complete composure, thanks to its tried-and tested four-wheel-drive system and finely-tuned suspension.
Safe and sound – The Discovery Sport has earned itself five stars in EuroNCAP crash tests, thanks to not only its superb four-wheel drive system, but also a pedestrian airbag that deploys within 60 milliseconds, Autonomous Emergency Braking and airbags galore (driver and passenger, driver knee, side curtain and thorax).
Now, if you can think of a reason not to get yourself behind the wheel of this exquisite and remarkable machine, then we are all ears!
Call or stop by Land Rover Austin today to schedule a test climb in the all new 2015 Discovery Sport. We can assure you that you will be more than happy you did.
