These are my first photos. Taken on the iphone, sorry. When I have a chance to do a proper photo session with DSLR - I will post more.
I hope photos from the members will boost the attention of prospective buyers to increase the owners community.
I have not seen any other Disco Sports on the roads. I do like the feeling of being ahead of the crowd, driving unique car. But hey, I can't see the car from the outside when I drive! I need more Discos on the road to look at them! lol
You should try to enjoy having a product that is pretty exclusive right now. Its nice to turn heads and have people ask, "what is hat you're driving?" BMWs don't even turn heads any more because everyone and their mom has one (depending on the neighbourhood of course, but you get it).
Its a stock all-season tires, marked S+M. Continental CrossContact LX Sport (245/45R20). Acceleration and handling is exceptional. Braking.. Lets say, there are no miracles when it come to stop more than two tons on a packed snow surface. Keeping the distance is crucial. Proper studded tires would make big difference.
I have a 2018 with the same tires, I think.. I was driving through slushy and hard-packed snowy roads recently and for the first time in this car and it performed extremely well. The sand/snow setting noticeably changes the handling of the car and makes driving in these conditions pretty great actually. You'll be one of the most capable [stock] cars on the road for sure, especially if you adhere to basic snow/ice/slush driving practices. On my recent snowy/slushy trip (Wash DC to Richmond VA) there were all types of cars (at least 30) in the ditch of the interstate where it was mainly just packed slush between lanes, and almost no cars on the snowy side roads I used to get around a major traffic/accident area. It made for a pleasant winter wonderland drive and I had full confidence in my Disco. Feels amazing; the reason I got a Land Rover instead of other cars.
Deep snow/mud off road will surely be problematic with stock tires, so if you drive off road in these conditions I'd suggest a more aggressive tread for those conditions. Snow/ice and mud tires ARE NOT the same. Mud tires on ice are far worse than any all terrain tire. Some all terrain tires are snow rated (snowflake icon) and perform well in most mud also. I wonder if they make Duratracs to fit my Disco...? Hmmm...
Pic: The snowy side road. Not very deep, but completely covered with an inch or so. No issues at all at slightly slower than normal speeds and snow/sand mode selected.
