Such has been the demand for our Discovery Sport’s services in recent weeks that I’ve hardly seen it — a situation I’m far from happy about.
Picture editor Ben Summerell-Youde took it to North Somerset for a weekend that involved lots of mud and slippery fields, then Steve Cropley borrowed it for a week-long holiday in Cornwall with his other half, and editorial chief Jim Holder nabbed it for a hectic weekend of family activities in and around London.
And right this minute, it’s back in Cornwall with editorial assistant Doug Revolta, who wanted something to transport a double bass and other musical instruments on a week-long trip.
Each time the car returns to my hands, I feel a real sense of relief — stronger than I ever expected. Not only am I a confirmed fan of the way the Discovery Sport drives and its comfort levels, but it’s also becoming clear just how versatile and downright useful it is.
