Land Rover Discovery Sport Diesel Variant Now Available in Malaysia
Jaguar Land Rover (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd has introduced the diesel variant of the Land Rover Discovery Sport premium compact SUV.
There is no better time than now to own one as the versatile 5+2-seater premium compact SUV now comes with a free instalment plan of up to 12 months. The plan frees you to discover more adventures with your family and friends. A cash rebate option is also available.
The new Land Rover Discovery Sport 2.2L SD4 Diesel is powered by a proven 2.2-litre, 190PS and 420Nm turbodiesel engine mated to an advanced nine-speed automatic transmission for peerless refinement, efficiency, driver engagement and off-road capability. The Discovery Sport 2.2L SD4 is priced at RM450,000. (Price is with GST but excludes road tax, registration and insurance.)
According to Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia Sdn Bhd Managing Director, Datuk Aishah Ahmad, the diesel-powered Discovery Sport offers a winning combination of power, torque and fuel efficiency for a truly impressive drive on the road and best-in-class off-road capability that is synonymous with a Land Rover.
Every Discovery Sport 2.2L SD4 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.
Discovery Sport’s bold and progressive design, which combines 5+2 seating configurability 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 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 unrivalled all-terrain performance courtesy of 600mm wading depth, optimised approach, departure and break-over angles and Terrain Response® System.
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 four settings: General; Grass/Gravel/Snow (for slippery conditions on- and off-road); Mud and Ruts; and Sand.
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).
