New and Used Land Rover Discovery for Sale Philippines
The Land Rover Discovery 2016, as well as the Discovery Sport 2016, is a terrific choice for the driver that often engages in rough driving conditions but wants to have a stylish, comfortable, everyday vehicle. Offering first-class interior space and amenities, comfortable driving, comprehensive security features, a powerful, multi-purpose powertrain, and muscular styling that’s easy on the eyes, the overall package promises a top driving experience for those who like to push their cars to the limit.
And if you think that the Discovery is not built for speed, then think again. This car won the 2010 Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc, a 2 day, off-road marathon for women held in Southern Morocco. This yearly event is composed of 119 teams of women competing in three categories: Quad/Motorbike, 4WD/Truck and Crossover. The Discovery line has built a strong reputation from the moment it was first introduced in 1989. The vehicle was first sold in the United Kingdom, and was based on the chassis and engine of the more upmarket Range Rover.
The Land Rover Discovery was not presented to the Philippines until 2004. Yet despite this, some had already discovered the capabilities of the car and had earlier models imported into the country. Today, the Land Rover Discovery Philippines has established itself as the car of choice for many high-income families who want one of the best hardcore SUVs around.
The Land Rover Discovery Sport 2016 is the sportier sibling of the Land Rover Discovery, and is considered by motoring journalists to be Land Rover’s first foray into mainstream SUV building. This less-rugged compact crossover is more family-friendly, with impeccable off-road capability housed in a luxurious body that’s quite affordable—at least for Land Rover’s price standard. The new Land Rover Discovery 2016 pits itself against American and other European SUVs the Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Volvo XC90, and Hummer H2, while the new Land Rover Discovery Sport is paired with the BMW X3 and Audi Q5

Land Rover Discovery reviews from different motoring pundits state that the Discovery was born and meant to be on rugged terrain, as the car handled excellently off-road.
