Top 5 Reasons to Love the Land Rover Discovery Sport

Land Rover Discovery Sport

The latest from the rugged Land Rover badge has emerged and is being described as an industry leader in its class. The Land Rover Discovery Sport is equipped with a 2.2-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel and appears to have bid adieu to the standard boxiness.

The Land Rover Discovery Sport

5 fantastic things about the new Land Rover Discovery Sport:

  1. This version has been completely revised with the future in mind. It manages to maintain the expected luxury sports SUV, but with improved technology and a sleeker countenance. That means it is no longer a large and imposing box on wheels, but rather, a more well-rounded creature in tune with her times.
  2. It is a bit like the sexier and wildly popular Range Rover Evoque sibling in larger format—which is an incredible treat.
  3. Like all larger Land Rovers, the new Discovery Sport offers ample space. That means 7 seats and plenty of wiggle room, with the 2nd row seating capable of reclining. The 3rd row seating is somewhat smaller and more ideal for storage and childrens, but could work for shorter trips with a group of friends. Just ask the couple you are not crazy about to park it in the back—problem solved.
  4. It is basically an amphibian. The Discovery Sport can take on up to two feet of water. So long as the driver is knowledgeable on how to properly operate the vehicle, most terrains are not an issue for the monster.
  5. Safety. This model earned 5 stars in EuroNCAP crash tests and offers not only driver and passenger airbags, but also a special pedestrian airbag that deploys within 60 milliseconds. It is brimming with safety features and current technology creature comforts.

Overall, it is a challenge to discover something to dislike about the Land Rover Discovery Sport–Well-done once again, chaps!

Last Bugatti Veyron to Bid Adieu in Geneva

Last Bugatti Veyron

Most automotive brands utilize the annual Geneva Motor Show to introduce new models. Bugatti will be staging the farewell of the long-running Veyron at the illustrious gathering this year. The end of the Bugatti Veyron marks a bittersweet point for the brand, leaving fans saddened at the departure and in suspense for a successor.

When the Bugatti Veyron first emerged, it was with the plan to produce 450 units. Because the beast is so grand and powerful, it is one expensive piece of machinery. Million-dollar-plus supercars do not sell as quickly as their underlings for obvious reasons, and there is but a select and exclusive market for them as such. It took a decade for the company to unload all 450 units of the Bugatti Veyron, and the final car will wave goodbye in Geneva, fittingly. read more

Jeremy Clarkson’s Car of the Year: Corvette Stingray 

“They’ve skimped on the trim to keep the costs down – Amstrad would have rejected the head-up display graphics for being too old-fashioned. In 1985. But they’ve gone the extra mile with the bits that matter. So we get a properly fast car that’s lovely to drive, for about half what we were expecting to pay.” –Clarkson read more

Which Brand Won the Most International Engine of the Year Awards?

The devilish roar that emerges from a Ferrari is something truly special–and they are not the only ones to feel that way. The brand has won two International Engine of the Year awards again this year, thanks to the all-new 6.3-liter V12 created for the F12 Berlinetta. The engine unleashes 740 Prancing Horses and the results must sting for Lamborghini, who no-doubt felt deserving with their splintering 700-horsepower Aventador. LaFerrari kicks out 950 happy horses, though it is a hybrid and was not part of the competition it appears. read more
