More than 200 journalists from 26 countries drove the new Discovery Sport around the roads of Catalonia and off-road at Land Rover Experiences’ Les Comes facility in Barcelona.
Journalists received an in-depth engineering and design presentation before driving more than 300km on the roads around the Montserrat region. They tackled a multitude of off-road tracks at Les Comes, which enabled drivers to experience Discovery Sport’s All Terrain Progress Control, Terrain Response 2, Drive Assist, ClearSight GroundView and ClearSight Rear View Mirror.
Find out what some of the journalists said below:
Auto Express: “It’s quieter, more efficient and comes loaded with tech. The competition is strong, but the fact it’s as spacious as ever and remains peerless off-road, keeps it very near the front of the pack.”
Top Gear: “The Discovery Sport is an SUV that rightfully ignores sportiness and focuses on comfort, flexibility and downright classiness. What appears a light evolution is actually a tech revolution, with some properly functioning media systems and more forwardthinking architecture.”
Car Magazine: “The Sport’s well-mannered when you press on, with strong grip levels and really nicely-weighted and accurate steering.”
AutoBild: “There are really few SUVs of this size that can boast their off-road capabilities. It is capable of overcoming really complicated areas and has technological aids that will make you look like an expert on off-road driving.”
Motor1: “With the stereo off, there’s virtually no noise from either wind or road. It’s clear that the noise, vibration, and harshness engineers have done some great work”
