Land Rover Discovery Sport

The Land Rover Discovery Sport is a high end subcompact luxury crossover SUV produced by British automotive company Jaguar Land Rover under their Land Rover marque. The Discovery Sport went on sale during September 2014, and is based on the Land Rover LR-MS platform, customised for off-road applications, and is powered by a range of four cylinder petrol and diesel engines.

The Discovery Sport represents the third generation of compact SUV produced by Land Rover, and replaced the Freelander. Although the Freelander model range had been a successful way to enable Land Rover to move into the medium SUV market, the company felt that the Freelander brand was tainted with memories of unreliability, and that the Discovery brand was more prestigious.
