Petaling Jaya, August 31, 2015 – British High Commissioner to Malaysia, Her Excellency Mrs Victoria Treadell, is the proud owner of the first Land Rover Discovery Sport in Malaysia.
She received the keys to Firenze Red Land Rover Discovery Sport 2.0L Si4 from Jaguar Land Rover (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd managing director Tuan Syed Mudzhar Syed Ali at an exclusive customer event held in conjunction with the vehicle’s Malaysian debut recently.
“I am thrilled to be amongst the first to own a Discovery Sport, part of the exciting new generation Land Rovers. It is British engineering and design at its best. Its capability and versatility makes it a vehicle for all occasions, perfect for my needs. As Britain’s senior representative, it’s important that I personally drive a great British car,” she said.
The all-new Land Rover Discovery Sport is the world’s most versatile premium compact SUV, and the first member of the new Discovery family.
Discovery Sport’s bold and progressive design, which combines 5+2 seating configurability with design and engineering integrity in a compact footprint that is smaller than many traditional 5-seater SUVs, is unique in its segment.
Discovery Sport maintains the heritage of outstanding capability, which has been at the core of every Land Rover since 1948. It has been engineered to provide best-in-class off-road capability, on-road dynamics, interior packaging, safety innovations and use of intelligent lightweight materials.
Designed and engineered at Land Rover’s development centre in the UK, the Discovery Sport is produced at the company’s award-winning manufacturing facility in Halewood, Liverpool.
