The auto maker went for the name specifically because the new model is going to be a major overhaul of the previous model and will incorporate luxury, performance and general appeal. The new crossover is going to borrow much from the Evoque rather than the Discovery but that isn’t a bad thing.

The new 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport is going to get a similar engine as Jaguar uses, therefore buyers will not have a reason to complain about the performance let alone the fuel economy specs.

Additionally, the new vehicle is most likely going to replace the Freelander in almost all aspects especially in the small SUV segment, hence it should be able to deliver on any terrain. The following review will keep you updated on everything related to the 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport.

The overall size of the SUV feels taut and compact if compared to the unwieldy and large Discovery and resembles as a larger sibling to the Evoque. At the front fascia, one will notice that it is now more curved and a little softer than any of its previous versions.

The new trellis grille is skirted by HID headlights that also have LED technology that have been set in a circular design and have distinctive points inside. The auto maker has said this design is meant to create a sense of a compass with the breakings within the LED’s signifying the 4 cardinal directions of a compass.

At the back of the machine are slimmer taillights with wraparound design which aid in the overall look. The auto maker has also claimed that the new machine is aerodynamic which has been attributed to the alterations in the wheel design and dimensions.

Could you imagine the possibilities of the Defender going through the same SVO process? I definitely have had a hard time believing it would, after some while, be decked out as the Range Rover Sport SVR, however I am open to new insights on the SVO coming forth with a suitable plan that is well-suited for the Defender’s utilitarian character.
