Superior technology and performance enable exciting new discoveries

Land Rover successfully concluded Never Stop Discovering Season 7 themed “Land Rover Discovers Starred Routes”. Guided by the Discovery, the participants went deep into the mysterious Yunnan-Tibet route and the Pamirs Plateau in Xinjiang, searching for the Land Rover Discovers Starred Routes. In order to foster a deep understanding of Land Rover ATRS among bigger audience, 240 Land Rover ATRS Camps were organized in 234 cities across the country. The camps have provided immersive driving experience for more than 8,500 consumers with different needs and different levels of driving skills, displaying the strength of Land Rover ATRS in various terrains.
At this year’s Auto Guangzhou, the latest addition to the Land Rover Discovery family – the New Land Rover Discovery Sport – made a shining appearance. “It is a luxurious, practical, intelligent and dynamic mid-size all-terrain SUV model specially designed for middle-class families.

They are all new Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA), 48-volt MHEV system with Ingenium engine, the second generation ATRS, entirely new family-style exterior and interior design, and new practical technologies.
