Land Rover celebrates best-selling model with special edition Discovery Sport

SUVs may be the trendiest and in-demand vehicle type in the UK right now but Land Rover has been there all along, going right back to 1948 – well before the original Range Rover from 1970. Over the decades, Land Rover has sold a fair few SUVs but few have been as popular as the Discovery Sport.
