British car magazine AutoExpress already had the chance of driving the all-new Land Rover Discovery Sport, the car that will replace the ageing Freelander. The car is already in production at Land Rover`s Halewood factory and it looks like is ready to impress its clients, as the review is a positive one.
 
Interior
 
The compact SUV was designed and engineered at the Land Rover Development Center in the UK and can offer up to seven seats inside the cabin, thanks to a 2741 mm (107 inch) wheelbase.
 
Land Rover will offer seven passenger seating with a 5+2 third row for occasional usage. When the third-row seat is folded, luggage volume equals that of the two-row model. Both the second and third rows can be folded down using one hand to create a spacious load area. Second-row passengers sit two-inches (50mm) higher than front-seat occupants. Five interior color options include Ebony, Cirrus, Ivory, Almond and Tan.
 
Drivetrain
 
In Europe, the Discovery Sport will be offered also with a 2.2 liter diesel, delivering 190 hp. It can be assisted by the same nine-speed automatic, or by a standard six-speed manual.
