Learn more about the popular Volkswagen T-Roc and Land Rover Discovery and why they’re your next dream cars.


Volkswagen T-Roc


This is a car that can match your confidence and make you stand out from the crowd. You’re sure to have people’s heads turning as you drive the sporty yet sophisticated VW T-Roc, a SUV that has advanced technology while still being comfortable and elegant.


There are two models of the T-Roc, both representing the future of car design while having Volkswagen’s signature build quality.


The T-Roc has a modern, bold design from exterior to interior, with a beautiful silhouette enhanced by a chrome strip that runs the length of the side roofline, but many parts of the car can also be customised to suit your personality. VW has created a large variety of paint options with a two-tone or monochromatic option. Roof colours come in Pure White, Black and Flash Red, so you can make a statement by just driving down the road! The 1.4 and 2.0 Design models also have the option of three different wheel styles.


It doesn’t stop there! The contemporary interior of the T-Roc is sure to wow any driver with its plush seats that slide back generously and ample space in the centre cubby, door pockets, glovebox, under the front armrest and boot, ensuring a pleasant ride for both driver and passenger. You have a choice of Ravenna Blue or Curcuma Yellow for the interior inserts and upholstery, and the option to customise your cloth seat trims.


The T-Roc SUV is also functional, sporting a list of superior technology, including Composition Media Radio, Discover Media Navigation, Active Info Display and a beats® sound system. You can also use We Connect Go, which will conveniently connect your phone to your car via Bluetooth, and App-Connect, which allows you to put smartphone apps onto your infotainment touch screen.


Now for all those true car fans out there: the Engine. The T-Roc’s TSI petrol engine options pack a punch with next-level power and efficiency.  You can choose from the Design 1.4 TSI 110kW 8 Speed Tiptronic®, Design 2.0 TSI 140kW 4MOTION®, or the R-Line 2.0 TSI 140kW 4MOTION® DSG®. The car also has an excellent dual-clutch DSG® gearbox. The 4MOTION® technology allocates the engine’s power across all four wheels so that the T-Roc is sure-footed on any road, and, in conjunction with operational safety systems, you’re ensured an amazing and safe driving experience

Land Rover Discovery

This is the new car on the block that everyone is talking about! The Land Rover Discovery is the most versatile seven-seat SUV, with new designs that stay true to Land Rover’s aim to build cars that challenge what is possible and encourage their owners to explore new territories and terrain.


The design of the new Discovery is seamless yet functional. It has a low, wide stance, ready for action, with a new front grille and bumper, and the newly sculpted headlights allow for more visibility. You can also personalise your Discovery with 12 paint options to choose from, roof options including the sliding panoramic roof and the Narvik Black contrast roof, and a selection of wheels in various finishes. When taking a look inside, you’ll find a contemporary interior housing three rows of seats with deep seat cushions, made of premium materials (with non-leather alternatives), and other features to enhance your driving experience, such as the intuitively designed toggle shift.


The interior features of the Land Rover Discovery are truly the star of the show and what makes this SUV so versatile. The boot is large (with powered gesture tailgate to open the boot when your hands are full) and there are clever storage compartments throughout the vehicle to store anything and everything you need.


The Discovery achieved a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP and features driver assistance technology including a 3D Surround Camera, Emergency Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist. The car also sports a list of other in-car technology that is simple and functional to improve your lifestyle.


The impressiveness of the Discovery continues through to the engine, which comes in a range of options. For clean power, they suggest their Mild Hybrid P360 engine, while their P360 petrol engine is perfect for shorter drives. However, if you’re looking for fuel economy over long distances, the D300 diesel engine is perfect for longer drives, motorway cruising, towing and off-roading. All Wheel Drive, Terrain Response, Hill Descent Control, All Terrain Control and many other features allow for a confident and smooth journey on any surface.


With all this and more, the Land Rover Discovery can be the perfect car for anyone!
