Congratulations! Please share some photos, and as a former Saab owner myself (owned 3), I'd love to read more about your impressions of the car.We bought one last weekend. I think it looks better than the photos. The dealer had only two to sell, identical HSEs, white with a black tops and wheels so we have now seen two.
First Land Rover vehicle for us, last two cars were Saabs, the latest a 94X SUV. The Discovery Sport is smaller but has more features packed into it. Handles well, very firm suspension, at least compared to the Saab (which was really a Cadillac SRX with a different skin).
Highway 1 is always a great drive. Haven't done it in many years though.Drove Hwy 1 North of San Francisco and then over the mountains to Healdsburg. For those who are not familiar with this area, these are narrow, crooked and in some places very steep roads. Also one of the most beautiful areas you will ever see.
The Discovery Sport HSE handled it perfectly. Not hint of hesitation or the transmission feeling like it was searching for the right gear. Did have a chance to use the paddles on some of the more challenging stretches and they worked great. Suspension was firm, kept the car flat, but was not harsh, I think they got just the right level of firmness. Still pleasantly surprised at the power, no sign of turbo lag.
Apart from handling wonderfully it is a darn good looking SUV. I think Land Rover is going to sell a boatload of these cars.
