It has a wading depth of 600mm, too.

So if you find yourself a bit lost, down a muddy path and faced with a shallow(ish) river you'll be able to cross it.

The Discovery Sport is for people who want something a little more rugged than, say, an Evoque.

Something more used to nasty terrain than mall car parks.

However, Land Rover knows that most of the time the Discovery Sport will spend is on the road, so it promises top-notch handling.

If you've lots of children, you can spec 5+2 seating, too. So your whole brood can travel with you.

Handily, you can spec six USB ports as well. No iPhone will go uncharged, no text unsent.

It promises to be super frugal and will apparently emit 119g/km CO2.

It'll also come with six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmissions.

And Autonomous Emergency Braking. Which sounds pretty jazzy.

So don't get one of these if your ideal weekend involves staying indoors and watching cat videos on the Internet.

There's a new 8-inch touchscreen to house all the infotainment gubbins.

The Discovery Sport's designer, Gerry McGovern said, "Our challenge has been to combine premium design with exceptional versatility; the two attributes must work in harmony.”

Not to the ISS or anything dangerous, but on a Virgin Galactic flight.
