Euro Cars has brought in the latest Land Rover Discovery Sport which boasts new and innovative technology and a prestigious ‘below $200,000’ price tag.

The vehicle with 9-speed transmission for fuel-saving was unveiled on Thursday night.

This is the first vehicle in the world with pedestrian protection which means there are airbags outside to protect pedestrians in case of accidents.

Niranjans/Euro Cars chief executive Bob Niranjan said the Discovery Sport has all of the inherent Land Rover capability needed to take on any challenge.

He said: “We think there is a market in Fiji that is looking for vehicles in this category. The Discovery Sport is a completely new vehicle that Land Rover has developed.

“The consumers are looking for something that is environmentally-friendly, using less fuel and of course reducing maintenance.

“This product is a very suitable for Fiji. The roads are improving, for fuel savings and we think the Land Rover Sport suits well with those new merging trends.”

He added that a number of orders have been placed and the first delivery was made yesterday.

The chief guest, the Acting British High Commissioner Dan Salter, during his speech talked about the brand Land Rover and its history.

“Formed just after the end of Second World War, Rover saw the need for a lightweight, durable and rustproof, all- terrain vehicle,” he said.

“The first Land Rover was clad in aluminum alloy, a beneficial result of the post war steel shortage, but which ticked all the boxes.

“There is no doubt that the Discovery Sport is a Land Rover. But this model introduces a progressive new design approach, tailored specifically to create clear differentiation between the other families within the Land Rover brand.”

The vehicle will be marketed in Fiji below $200,000, Mr Niranjan said.
