Default Re: Land Rover Discovery Sport CKD assembly commences in Pune

I am surprised that a car worth 46 lakhs won't have leather seats !.
That is very poor on LR's part. It also misses out on parking sensors, panoromic sunroof and cruise control. Mind you the next trim at 51 lakh also misses out on full leather seats. None of the bottom two variants have a dual climate control.

To have fabric seats in a car which will be 53-55 Lakhs on road is appalling.

i was also informed that the OTR pricing will be 57 odd - 75 lakh. That too with the old engines. Ridiculous pricing IMO.

Yep I've heard the exact same for the HSE Lux 60.7 Ex showroom. Now I have a question is that price inclusive of octroi for Mumbai?

I quite agree that the launch with the old engines is a bad deal but, then they did that globally as well. Not sure why we don't get a little preferential treatment since we are the Home market now !

Thank you very much for the detailed post. Much appreciated. I Would just like to point out that the Meridian 17 speaker system with rear entertainment in only on the HSE Luxury model. The Nav comes even on the HSE.

Also, the car does have a Park Assist feature for parallel and regular parking.

I have the spec sheet and some photos that I have already shared - let me know if you'd like to have them on this thread.

Here are the price lists for the 5 and 7 seater all for All Variants of the LR Discovery Sport. I just received this in an email from the dealer.

Cheers

Default Land Rover Discovery Sport launched in India at Rs. 46.10 lakh

Just finished up an hour ago at the JLR launch party for the Discovery Sport in Bombay. They had a lovely setup at the Grand Hyatt (better than the CLA launch ).

Had two HSE Luxuries and a HSE.

Good conversation and great information the the products.

LRs definitely doing a better job at PR

Per Consumer reports LR discovery does not get good marks.

Looks you are sold out on this one .. all the best !

Reviewers at customer reports have some interesting observations
Quote

Despite the upper-class pose, though, driving this car is like opening a jar of Macadamia nuts and finding Cheetos inside. Nothing wrong with Cheetos, but it's not what we thought we were buying.

So what's not to like? Let's start with power delivery. The nine-speed transmission is neither smooth nor responsive. It tries to calculate which gear it's supposed to be in, but too often guesses wrong. Combined with the engine's turbo lag, thrust is unpredictable

The steering wheel is nice to grasp, but the steering itself feels disconnected, as if the column were linked to the drive wheels with ropes.

Neither are you apt to forget the stiff ride. On any but the freshest-laid blacktop, the chassis introduces every bump and pebble by its first name. One of our drivers commented that it felt as if the tires were filled with concrete

Overall, we were expecting a lunch-sized portion of Beef Wellington, but the Discovery Sport experience is more like an undercooked serving of bangers and mash.

Considering the Santa Fe 4x4 AT has an ex-showroom of 31 lakhs (outside octroi), I was pleasantly surprised to see the Discovery's pricing. However, the base variant is too basic and the loaded variants are priced much higher.

This is such a sham. I don't know how anyone can make claims of 'ex-showroom Mumbai' pricing without including octroi. If it's Mumbai, it better be calculated with octroi. Manipulative method of showing a lower price.

P.S. In that image, do Yuvraj & Karthikeyan look photo-shopped to anyone else?

Yes sir . They, rather their pictures, looks to have been photo-shopped. And I agree. Ex-showroom without Octroi is a very much incorrect example of advertising.

Didn't look at the image closely, but after you mentioned this I did and they definitely look to be photoshopped into the image. Hilarious

Yes the images looks to be pasted , but why will or should LR do such things ? They must have taken approval from both of these so why not pay them little extra & get them on launch event .

There are several such negative reviews/posts dedicated to German cars as well. I lost count how many posts I read about troubles and breakdowns of premium German cars
consumerreport.org is very widely respected and you need to subscribe to get detailed report, of course nothing can be trouble-free but here we are talking of averages which in case of LR are pretty bad .
