Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia Previews the Discovery Sport at Sepang, Possible August DebutBuying Guide
Jaguar Land Rover (Malaysia) gave owners, prospective customers, and members of the media a quick preview of Land Rover’s new seven-seat SUV, the Discovery Sport, at the Land Rover Experience Drive Days, which was held at Sepang.
Measuring in at 4599mm long and 2173mm wide, the Discovery Sport occupies a smaller footprint than the likes of the Audi Q5 and BMW X3, and promises to pack the all-terrain functionality that has become hallmark of the Land Rover name. The Discovery Sport previewed at the event is the 2.2D 190PS SD4 variant, which features a 2.2-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that produces 190PS and 420Nm of torque. The engine is hooked up to a 9-speed automatic, just as you would get on the Range Rover Evoque.
Inside the Discovery Sport comes with Land Rover’s Terrain Response system that automatically adjusts several parameters on the car to suit certain terrain conditions, powered tailgate, reverse camera, panoramic roof, and a Meridian Surround Sound audio system. For now Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia have yet to confirm the pricing of the Discovery Sport, and expects the model to be making its debut in Malaysia by August, if all goes as planned.
