The British-made Land Rover had its origins as a derivative of the popular WW2-era Jeep. Like Jeep, the Land Rover was originally available as a single model, but its name has grown to include a range of vehicles. Land Rovers are typically luxuriously appointed, yet competent off-road. The lineup ranges from the compact Evoque to the prestigious Range Rover. Land Rover is owned by India-based Tata Motors.
New or Significantly Altered Models
The new Discovery replaces the LR4 and returns the model to a name that it has used in the past, both here and in other markets. The new vehicle is longer and wider, but slightly shorter in height. Power is provided by either a 3.0l diesel rated at 254-bhp or a 3.0l gas engine rated at 340-bhp. All-wheel-drive and an eight-speed transmission are standard.
The compact Land Rover Evoque coupe is now offered in convertible form. This four-passenger convertible features a power-operated soft top. A 2.0l four-cylinder turbo and AWD are standard.
