Following its local debut in August last year, Jaguar Land Rover (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd has just announced the market availability of the diesel variant in the Land Rover Discovery Sport premium compact SUV range.
Priced at RM450,000 (price is with GST but excludes road tax, registration and insurance), the Discovery Sport 2.2L SD4 Diesel is RM51,000 pricier compared to the 2.2L Si4 Petrol variant that retails for RM399,000 (price is with GST but excludes road tax, registration and insurance).
However, now is the best time to own this versatile 5+2-seater premium compact SUV as it comes with a free instalment plan of up to 12 months. There’s also a cash rebate available as an option.
Every Discovery Sport 2.2L SD4 also comes with a 5-year or 150,000km warranty, 5-year or 80,000km free scheduled maintenance and 3-year roadside assistance, whichever comes first.
The Land Rover Discovery Sport 2.2L SD4 Diesel is powered by a 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine that produces a total output of 190 PS and 420 Nm of torque. Fitted with 9-speed automatic gearbox, the SD4 can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 8.9 seconds and reach up to 188 km/h where conditions allow.
Discovery Sport’s bold design, which combines 5+2 seating configurability in a compact footprint that is smaller than many traditional 5-seater SUVs, is unique in its segment. This smart design is complemented by class-leading usability: all-round visibility is excellent, while the interior and load space (up to 1,698-litres) are easily accessible and fully optimised.
It 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 all-terrain performance courtesy of 600mm wading depth, optimised approach, departure and break-over angles and Terrain Response System.
The Terrain Response allows Discovery Sport’s steering, throttle response, gearbox, centre-coupling and braking/stability systems to be precisely tailored to the demands of the terrain. The system features 4 settings: General; Grass/Gravel/Snow (for slippery conditions on- and off-road); Mud and Ruts; and Sand. Although the Discovery Sport is proven to be a capable SUV, owners will very likely not want to take this luxury ride off-road!
In terms of safety, there’s a comprehensive occupant safety package including 7 airbags, 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).
