Introducing the Land Rover Discovery Sport

When it was originally launched, the Land Rover Discovery Sport surprised quite a large number of people. There was certainly nothing new about a sporty looking SUV that could carry the whole family in luxury and comfort; but one that could easily tackle off-road terrain without batting an eyelid? Well that was something of a revelation.

Discovery Sport continues to impress to this day, which is in part thanks to the mid-life refresh. The facelift brought a host of changes, including a revised appearance, an updated range of engines, and a number of innovative technologies.

Keep on reading to learn more about the Land Rover Discovery Sport and how its innovative technologies make it more than simply form over function.

Design and Practicality

Land Rover Discovery Sport, Exterior, Rear

Modern Land Rovers look utterly superb, and the Discovery Sport is no different. The rear end has been revised with features such as LED tail lights, while contemporary alloy wheel designs complement the other sharp details such as the scrolling indicators.

Inside is suitably spacious, with the Discovery Sport gifting comfortable seating for up to seven people, which is fairly unheard of in this class. Upfront, the driver will enjoy plenty of seat adjustment, while the steering wheel adjusts for rake and reach. Fitting a child's seat is easy because of the accessible Isofix anchor points in the rear seats.

The boot is large with the third row of seats folded down, and it is straight-forward to create a van-like cargo area because the second row of seats can be folded down at the press of a button. There is hardly a loading lip either, which really helps when loading and unloading cumbersome items.

Technology and Safety

Land Rover Discovery Sport, Interior

Among the plush materials and soft-touch plastics are a number of innovative technologies. The 10-inch infotainment system features throughout the range, and comes with satellite navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, plus a slick multimedia setup. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on models further up the range.

Equally as impressive is the digital instrument cluster (SE and HSE models), which can be navigated through the multifunction steering wheel that boasts effortless swipe functionality. Each car comes with front and rear parking sensors as standard, and transmits the image via the infotainment screen courtesy of the rear camera.

Advanced safety features include (but are not limited to):

  • Roll Stability Control
  • Emergency Brake Assist
  • Land Rover Optimised Assistance
  • Emergency Brake Assist

Economy and Performance

Land Rover Discovery Sport, Exterior, Off-road

There are three petrol and three diesel engines to choose from with Discovery Sport, with a mild-hybrid and a plug-in hybrid available on certain models. An 8-speed automatic and four-wheel drive is standard across the range, unless you opt for the entry-level diesel, which is front-wheel drive and comes with a manual gearbox.

The three diesel engines offer plenty of flexibility, as well as excellent efficiency. They are available in three outputs (150, 180, and 240 bhp) and return between 36.6 and 46.3 mpg on a combined (average) cycle (model dependent).

Meanwhile, the petrol engines offer more punch throughout the rev range and come with either 200 or 250 bhp. The plug-in hybrid combines with a 1.5-litre engine to deliver 309 bhp, yet can return up to 175.5 mpg on a combined cycle.

Land Rover's intelligent four-wheel drive system uses a number of computers to optimise grip on a variety of challenging terrains, ensuring every off-road adventure is a stress-free experience.

Test Drive the Land Rover Discovery Sport

It is easy to see why the Discovery Sport has proven so popular since its launch. A sporty SUV wearing the famous Land Rover badge was always going to be highly sought after, but adding in the efficiency of the hybrid systems alongside the innovative driver technologies simply enhance an already desirable vehicle.

The ability to tackle any terrain and seat seven are further reasons to love the Discovery Sport, not that the extra justification was required.

Please contact your nearest Stratstone Land Rover retailer to arrange a test drive.
