If you want to climb a mountain you get a Land Rover. There is no question or shadow of doubt that these machines are the ultimate go anywhere 4X4’s. However if you want the rough and tumble capabilities but also more in the way of refinement, a Range Rover is just what the doctor ordered. The 2012 Discovery and Sport are a continued evolution of an already winning formula.
The biggest change comes in the form of a new 8 speed automatic gearbox for both the Disco and the Sport. Yet the new box is only available with the 3.0 litre V6 and not the V8 engines. Inside an all-new entertainment system is housed within a 7 inch touch screen monitor as well as small refinements in the upholstery department. The Discovery also receives a more pronounced front bumper and LED lights. The Range Rover Sport sees the addition of a more square face and grill that will be described by some as “bling”.
