It appears as though Land Rover has dropped the Meridian audio system on the new Discovery Sport in North America. lists the 17 speaker Meridian system as an option but Land Rover USA and Canada do not have this option.
Instead we are being offered a Land Rover Audio system with 10 speakers or an 11 speaker, including subwoofer, upgrade. No information is available on this audio system that I can find.
This is very disappointing to myself as I was considering purchasing this car in the future. Might have to pick up an LR2 before they disappear since the Meridian audio system was a must have for me.
I suppose they had to cut costs somehow to keep the price about the same as the discontinued LR2 (Freelander 2).
