Known as the luxury SUV brand around the world, Land Rover has continually shaped the market with multiple models to accommodate for size, price, performance and terrain. The 2015 Land Rover Discovery comes at a time when the market is being dominated again by sportier and more efficient SUVs. The Discovery may be the perfect option.
The 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter, Turbocharged I-4 engine is a master of design and efficiency. It outputs an impressive 240 horse power and 250 pound-feet of torque. With a max speed of 125 mph and a 0-60 clocked time of 7.8 seconds, this midsized SUV can perform and please drivers who are used to more power under the hood. The eco efficiency of this vehicle is getting great acclaim in that its technologies are leveraged to ensure smooth transmission, fuel efficiencies and terrain alternatives to improve carbon dioxide emissions output.
The sleek and simple design is a new trademark look that Land Rover has accomplished across all of its models. This midsized option is well-proportioned, resulting in a modern and compact vehicle. The sleek exterior comes inside to evoke a cockpit that is comfortable and adorned with only the best to enhance the overall experience and comfort. The three rows of seating accommodate five adults and two children comfortably while allowing for added room and an open cabin. The premium leather and convenient instrument panel design that Land Rover is known for make driving this vehicle a pleasure. Land Rover’s premium audio system boasts 10 speakers and engulfs the cabin with noise-cancelling sound. The eight-inch color touchscreen is a virtual infotainment center, with audio, navigation, eco data, Bluetooth® and multimedia connectivity and more.
