We go off-roading in the new Land Rover Discovery Sport in a wintry Iceland.

Wow!, that was a REAL test....2 inches of snow with winter tyres, and all of 6 inches of water. I reckon a 2CV could have managed all of that without breaking sweat.
And what's all this about this new 'Freelander' chassis being based on the Evoque platform.....wasn't the Evoque based on the last Freelander chassis - "The Evoque platform, named LR-MS, is loosely based on the Ford EUCD platform (which was used on the company's Freelander 2) "
So the new is based on the nearly new based on the old platform....marvellous bit of marketing that! Oh and it is launching with the old engine too.
On the positive side, it looks a lot better than the old model....and for that reason alone, the sheep and the gullible will queue up to buy it. Well done Land Rover, that's a great trick.

Driven this week

  • Volvo V90
    First Drive
    19 October 2017
    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided
  • Kia Stonic
    First Drive
    18 October 2017
    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
  • Hyundai Kona
    First Drive
    18 October 2017
    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment
  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
