The successor of the Freelander, the Land Rover Discovery Sport, is getting ready to arrive in a new market, Australia, starting from the 1st of May.

According to the local automotive media, the new Land Rover Discovery Sport will be priced from 53,300 AUD once it will become available for order and it is coming with features such as the autonomous emergency braking, the electrically adjustable front seats, the electric tailgate, navigation system and several other goodies which should make it quite an appealing ride.

The vehicle will be offered in three trim grades, the SE, where all engines will become available, the HSE, where only diesel units will be introduced and the HSE Luxury, in the SD4. The carmaker states that the third row of seats will be setting you back for 1,990 AUD and this is making it the first seven-seater in its segment. The TD4 and the SD4 are getting the standard six-speed manual transmission, while for the nine-speed automatic you will have to pay an extra 2,500 AUD.

Land Rover says that the Si4 petrol automatic costs 59,000 AUD, while for the Metallic paint you will have to pay 1,300 AUD, or even 2,600 AUD for the “premium” metallic paint. Because there are a lot of options and grades available for the model, the Land Rover Discovery Sport SD4 HSE Luxury automatic will start from 69,000 AUD and for the same variant, but with a manual transmission, you will pay 66,500 AUD. The TD4 unit is a 2.2L 4-cylinder turbo diesel with 110 kW and 420 Nm of torque, the SD4 is getting a 2.2L 4-cylinder with 130 kW and 420 Nm while the Si4 has a 2.0L 4-cylinder with 177 kW and 340 Nm.
