The Land Rover Discovery Sport range has received some price increases since the updated model was revealed last year.

    The base R-Dynamic P200 S now starts at $67,123 before on-road costs, an increase of $1423, while the flagship R-Dynamic P250 HSE is up $1869 to $80,301 before on-road costs.

    Jaguar Land Rover Australia attributes the price increases to “the prevailing economic conditions locally and in the UK”.

    The Discovery Sport continues with five-variant range, though in typical Jaguar Land Rover fashion there’s an options list longer than War and Peace.

    The Discovery Sport was the brand’s third best-seller last year, sitting closely behind the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport.

    Late last year, it picked up Jaguar Land Rover’s new Pivi Pro infotainment system and a pair of new diesel engines.
