LONG WHEELBASE 130 RETURNS TO THE LAND ROVER DEFENDER RANGE

After a gap of nearly six years Land Rover has returned the long-wheelbase 130 version to the Defender range alongside the shorter 110 and 90 models. As has been the long- standing tradition the numbers refer to the vehicles’ approximate wheelbase lengths in inches. At just under 5.4 metres in length the 130 is an eight-seater in 2-3-3 format with the second and third rows raised slightly above each other. This together with large windows and twin sunroofs contribute to an airy interior and excellent visibility. There are a number… Read more

LAND ROVER DISCOVERY SPORT IS A MILD HYBRID

Land Rover Discovery Sport has been enhanced with efficient next-generation mild-hybrid Ingenium diesel engines as well as the latest Pivi and Pivi Pro infotainment systems.

LAND ROVER DISCOVERY SPORT 2015 – 2019

2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport

First of all, note that the Land Rover Discovery Sport isn’t a name attached to another model, rather it’s a vehicle in its own right. Discovery Sport is not a toy SUV masquerading as a 4WD, it is the real deal – an all-terrain vehicle from the old school. One that can be taken into tough off-road conditions where, believe it or not, even the rather crude Land Rover Series 1 would have struggled when it was launched 72 years ago. Yet the Discovery Sport will meet all the requirements… Read more
