RR Sport: It arrived in 2007 and was soon hit by an economic downturn. It also fell away in 2012, but the series two RRS reinvigorated sales.
Discovery: Always a strong model in Brazil, its ruggedness no doubt its appeal.
Discovery Sport: Just arrived but immediately hit a sweet spot with locals. The plan is to make them at a plant in Itatiaia, circa Rio De Janeiro for 2017.
