Anjan Ravi,

I’m a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

First video of the SUV shows its many characters. 

Land Rover have released the promotional film of the Discovery Sport, which was announced this week. The Freelander 2’s successor goes on sale in the U.K. early next year.

The highlight of the Discovery Sport is its new three-row 7-seat configuration. Land Rover say that they have given the Discovery Sport the additional two seats without increasing the overall length by much compared to a 5-seat SUV.

Power for the Discovery Sport comes from four-cylinder engines only. The petrol is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder producing 240 bhp and 338 Nm of torque, while the diesel uses a 2.2-liter engine to make 187 bhp. Both engines can be had with 6-speed manual or 9-speed automatic transmissions, and with 2WD or 4WD.
