Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia (JLRM) has introduced the diesel variant of the Land Rover Discovery Sport premium compact SUV. The new Land Rover Discovery Sport 2.2L SD4 Diesel is powered by a proven 2.2-liter, 190PS and 420Nm turbodiesel engine mated to an advanced nine-speed automatic transmission for peerless refinement, efficiency, driver engagement and off-road capability.

Land Rover Discovery Sport’s bold and progressive design, which combines 5+2 seating configuration with design and engineering integrity in a compact footprint that is smaller than many traditional 5-seater SUVs, is unique in its segment. This streamlined design is complemented by class-leading usability: all-round visibility is excellent, while the interior and load space (up to 1,698L) are easily accessible and fully optimized.

In addition, the Premium SUV features a suite of engineering innovations by Land Rover, including the next generation multi-link rear axle; and state-of-the-art bodyshell made from a mix of high-strength steel and lightweight aluminium. The all-new multi-link rear axle in particular has proved crucial, allowing Land Rover to introduce 5+2 seating to a whole new segment while also offering best-in-class off-road performance and outstanding level of agility.

Being a Land Rover, the Discovery Sport offers unrivalled all-terrain performance courtesy of 600mm wading depth, optimized approach, departure and break-over angles and Terrain Response System.

Land Rover Discovery Sport has been engineered with the latest active and passive safety advances. A comprehensive occupant safety package includes a total of seven airbags — driver and passenger, knee, and side curtain and thorax airbags. Other safety features include Hill Descent Control (HDC®), Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Traction Control (ETC), Electronic Power Assisted Steering (EPAS), Hill Start Assist, Roll Stability Control (RSC), and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC).

The Land Rover Discovery Sport 2.2L SD4 is priced at RM450,000, including a 5-year or 150,000km warranty, 5-year or 80,000km free scheduled maintenance and 3-year roadside assistance. (Price is with GST but excludes road tax, registration and insurance).
