For the past two decades and counting, a majority of automakers have spent a great deal of time trying to migrate from the truck-based SUVs to car-based crossovers. This was occasioned by the latter’s mechanical underpinnings that result in superior fuel economy ratings and interior room at the expense of off-road capability.

It is hard for a brand like Land Rover that has built its SUVs entirely on the truck-based platform to alter its mechanical tidbits to cater for the more modern car-based one. They just aren’t ready for such a revolution yet, but there are indications to suggest the thorough overhaul is forthcoming sooner or later.

Therefore it shouldn’t be a surprise when the Sport model was introduced by Land Rover. It still retains the jungle-bashing ability the automaker is well known for.  The new 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport offers a smooth and simple yet elegant exterior and interior. It’s bigger and better than most of its rivals but smaller than a true midsize SUV. Interior space is also copious even for the backseat.

The only disappointment that seems to haunt the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is the four-cylinder turbocharged engine. As such, as a buyer you might want to check what its competition offers before making an ultimate decision. Rivals include the 2017 Acura RDX, the 2017 BMW X3, the 2017 Audi Q5, and the 2017 Volvo XC60. Despite the upscale interior furnishings and top performance specs these rivals claim to offer, when it comes to go-anywhere zest, rest assured the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is the vehicle to beat.

2017 Land Rover LR4 Release Date, News & Specs

With excellent off-road capability, a spacious interior, spacious seating for seven passengers, and high-tech features and a beautiful cabin, the 2017 Land Rover LR4 is certainly poised to be a solid choice for people looking for a luxury SUV. Although you may find its technology interface wanting, and its handling somehow mediocre. Its date of release should be expected in January 2017.

Very few luxury SUVs can match the superiority of the LR4. Reputed for its serious off-roading capability and general reliability, Land Rover has been making SUVs for slightly more than 11 decades now.

Back to the LR4. The vehicle comes chock full of upscale furnishings and amenities, and is primarily intended to be a replacement for the Discovery SUV. And while its price may be a major deterrent for many, its cabin swathed in rich materials, supercharged V6 engine, and a seating capacity for up to seven people indeed offers value for money.

Things even get better in terms of its prowess, and it would be imperative for buyers to ask themselves whether they really need a back-country SUV capability. Its mechanical tidbits are made up of hard-core hardware that makes it rather hefty with its weight approximated at 3 tones. With such a weight, users will find its maneuverability mediocre, and its engines thirsty.

Hopefully, if you find the LR4 ponderous, you might want to sample other SUVs in the market that offer the same level of posh and space. The first thing that comes to mind is the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. Although costly, this vehicle offers serious comfort and high-tech features.

Both the 2017 Infiniti QX60 and 2017 Acura MDX boasts of a significantly lower sticker price, but fall short in terms of interior space.
