Land Rover Discovery Sport snags top safety score
The Land Rover Discovery Sport will replace the Freelander as the brands small SUV offering.

It will be here in May next year and when the Land Rover Discovery Sport lands in Australian dealerships it will come with a top safety score.

The new seven-seat Discovery Sport has just come through its Euro NCAP crash tests with flying colours, the independent safety agency awarding the new model a maximum five star safety rating.

Murray Dietsch, Director of Land Rover Programmes, welcomed the result.

“The vehicle safety team worked tirelessly to ensure that the Discovery Sport delivered levels of safety never before seen in the small SUV segment.”

“We have introduced some cutting edge safety technologies such as the all-new pedestrian airbag and an innovative Autonomous Emergency Braking system, in addition to our tried-and-tested Land Rover safety systems.

“As a family vehicle, safety was really a key motivator when designing this car. We are proud to have made no compromises on this.”

We will keep you updated on more news on the Land Rover Discovery Sport in coming months.
