The much talked about all-new Land Rover Discovery Sport has been officially introduced to the Malaysian market. Imported and distributed by Jaguar Land Rover (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (JLRM), the new SUV has been hailed as the world’s most versatile premium compact SUV, and is the first member of the new Discovery family in Malaysia.

Expectedly, it also comes with unrivalled all-terrain performance courtesy of 600mm wading depth, optimised approach, departure and break-over angles and the Land Rover signature Terrain Response System that controls the throttle, gearbox, centre-coupling and braking and stability systems to match the demands of any terrain.
The Land Rover Discovery Sport comes with an armada of technologies aimed at comfort and versatility. It comes with a five-year or 300,000km warranty, five-year or 80,000km free scheduled maintenance, and 3-year roadside assistance.
