Jaguar Land Rover Company unveiled a brand new Land Rover Discovery SUV. Although it was introduced in 2016, in September, it was only recently that its sales began. In addition to this model, all are eagerly awaiting the new 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport model. Although many, these two models are viewed as one, they are completely independent. While Discovery comes in a brand new, fifth generation, Discovery Sport comes with smaller refreshments and new powertrain drives.
But let’s draw a line between these two models. Apart from being different in price, these two models also vary in size and configuration. Namely, Discovery Sport is not just one of the versions of the Discovery SUV. Discovery Sport offers a place for five passengers, while Discovery offers additional two passenger seats. In addition, the new Land Rover Discovery has an initial price of £ 43,495, while the starting price for the Land Rover Discovery Sport 2018 is £ 28,355.
Land Rover has introduced a new range of engines for its models. Primarily, new engines are designed for the 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport and 2018 Range Rover Evoque SUV models. These are the four-cylinder Ingenium engines, the new generation.
Apart from getting a new range of engines, these two models also get aesthetic improvements. Namely, 2018 Evoque gets a new palette of exterior colors. Also, there are leather sports seats, which are offered as an option. Finally, for the Evoque Convertible, SE Dynamic treatment is also available.
