The New Discovery Sport can handle the most demanding expectations. With Terrain Response,® the engine adapts to the conditions and it has the off-road capability you'd expect from a Land Rover. Tested to its limits in the steep, winding roads of the Dolomites mountain range, the Discovery Sport remains the best possible choice for families wishing to combine comfort with huge carrying capacity and outstanding off-road capabilities. The New Land Rover Discovery Sport is available to test drive at our Lancaster Land Rover retailers in Birmingham, Burnham, Milton Keynes, Reading and Tonbridge. Contact our helpful staff for further information about the new model.
The rigidity of the Discovery Sport's steel frame helps both driving dynamics and safety for the occupants in the event of a collision, whilst an extra layer of protection is provided by seven airbags. Meanwhile, a variety of active safety measures – ABS, Electronic Traction Control, Hill Start Assist, Dynamic Stability Control), keep this large SUV stable even on steep gradients and hairpin bends. In more crowded, urban environments, the Blind Spot Monitor, Closing Vehicle Sensing and Autonomous Emergency Braking System make manoeuvring safer and easier.
Its progressive design signals the future direction for the Discovery family of vehicles – sleeker, more aerodynamic and lighter – but with a clearly identifiable genetic link to Discovery as we know it.
The powerful, rounded front end, clamshell bonnet, faster windscreen angle, rising belt line, sloping roofline and prominent C pillar define the distinctive and dynamic character of Discovery Sport, and makes the standard availability of 5+2 seating an unexpected surprise. With numerous storage spaces for smaller items.
Headroom and legroom is expansive, even for full-size adults – and, due to the highly flexible seating possibilities, loadspace can be extended to as much as 1698 litres.
Discovery Sport has been developed to deliver agile and refined on-road dynamics alongside the leading all-terrain capability expected of a Land Rover.With ground clearance of 212mm, a maximum wading depth of up to 600mm and a towing limit of 2,200kg, there are few off-road challenges that the Discovery Sport cannot meet. Inside the vehicle offers space for five or seven passengers.
A selection of six petrol and diesel engines, available with two- or four-wheel drive and manual or automatic transmission, are available with the Discovery Sport.
The unit generating the most vigorous performance is the 2.0 litre, 240PS petrol engine, which can thrust the car to 60mph in 8.2 seconds.
Drivers more focused on low running costs, meanwhile, would be better served by the 2.2 litre diesel engine, which offers impressive combined fuel efficiency of 46.3mpg and CO2 output of 162g/km.
A variety of advanced technology improves comfort and convenience for the occupants.
An 8" touchscreen provides easy access to the sophisticated infotainment system, and everything from navigation to the choice of music can be easily controlled with the “pinch and zoom" functionality.
A DAB digital radio with 10 speakers and Bluetooth® connectivity are also standard on all editions of the Discovery Sport.
