GRAPHITE DESIGN PACK
The stylish Graphite Design Pack comes with a Grey contrast roof and Narvik Black mirror caps and a choice of Gloss Dark Grey 18", 19" or 20" alloy wheels. Individual elements are finished in Dark Atlas, with matching Discovery script on the bonnet and tailgate.
DYNAMIC DESIGN PACK
Discovery Sport's bold and arresting exterior design is further enhanced by such additional features as 20" Gloss Black wheels and distinctive Chrome exhaust finishers. Inside the cabin, contrast micropiping, a perforated leather steering wheel and aluminium sport pedals bear testimony to the vehicle's undoubted sporty credentials.*
*The high powered Si4 290PS engine features a unique bumper as standard. Fog lights not available.
BLACK DESIGN PACK
The Black Design Pack is available in all exterior colour options. Features include Narvik black grille, fender vents and black mirror caps, while black Discovery bonnet script and tailgate badging add the finishing touches.
The desirability of the exterior design continues into the cabin with bold horizontal and vertical lines complemented by clean surfaces, superb finishes and optional premium leathers. These, together with the vehicle's inherent DNA, give a luxury feel to the highly versatile interior.
As you would expect from a Discovery, the versatile Discovery Sport offers optional 5 + 2 seating (where available) while still retaining a more compact footprint than traditional 5 seat SUVs.
Land Rover has partnered with Meridian, a world leader in high-performance audio technologies and digital sound processing, to develop advanced sound systems for Discovery Sport. The optional 825W Meridian Surround Sound System includes 16 speakers and a dual channel subwoofer, delivering crystal clear highs and rich, deep bass notes throughout the cabin. You hear your music just how you want to.
Your smartphone and vehicle can provide a wealth of information and keep you entertained. With the 10” Touchscreen's Navigation Pro system and optional Dual View, the way ahead can be displayed as your front seat passenger watches a DVD. InControl Apps helps link your smartphone seamlessly to the system, allowing you to control compatible apps via the Touchscreen, whilst the Meridian™ Sound System plays your music.
Delivering a sportier, more economical performance, the new 4-cylinder 2.0 litre Si4 Petrol engine has either a 240PS or 290PS output to provide maximum efficiency, performance and fuel economy through a Continuously Variable Valve Lift system in combination with variable cam timing. Diesel options are also available including the 150PS, 180PS and the new 240PS.
On the road, Land Rover technology such as Adaptive Cruise Control, for relaxed long-distance drives, Adaptive Dynamics, providing an optimum balance of ride and control, and Active Driveline with Torque Vectoring, for smooth, controlled cornering, contribute to a refined and composed drive.
Your vehicle delivers industry-leading capability through technology such as All Terrain Progress Control that enables you to set and maintain a steady speed in challenging conditions; Terrain Response that adapts drive to surface; and Hill Descent Control, to see you safely down steep inclines.
With Blind Spot Monitoring to warn you of approaching vehicles from either side, a range of Park Assist technologies that make parking simple, and speed limit alerts to help you respond faster to restrictions, driver aids liberate you to concentrate on the driving.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
With state-of-the-art heating and cooling systems to keep everyone comfortable whatever the weather, and a variety of gesture and keyless technologies to choose from, Land Rover vehicles cocoon you in comfort.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
POWERED GESTURE TAILGATE
Our powered gesture tailgate feature allows you to both open and close the tailgate with a simple kicking action of your foot underneath the rear of the vehicle (providing the smart key is detected), so loading is that much easier. Sensors are mounted on either side of the vehicle to allow convenient kerbside operation.
HEATED FRONT AND REAR SEATS
All Discovery Sport models come with the option of Touchscreen configurable heated front seats. Heated seats are also available for your second row passengers.
Ensure your Discovery Sport is as ready as you are with the addition of the Timed Climate feature. It can be activated remotely or pre-programmed through the Touchscreen to preheat the engine and cabin so the vehicle is either warm and cosy or cool and comfortable for your departure.
CONFIGURABLE AMBIENT INTERIOR LIGHTING
With the option of Configurable Ambient Interior Lighting on SE and HSE models, (stand on HSE Luxury), you can vary the colour and shade to change the ambience of the cabin to suit your mood.
The Terrain Response System comes as standard with all4 Wheel Drive (4WD) engines and adapts to the responses of the vehicle's engine, transmission, differentials and chassis systems to maximise drivability, comfort and traction. A choice of four settings; General Driving, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts and Sand, ensure the vehicle is sure-footed no matter what the terrain or weather condition.
HILL DESCENT CONTROL
Land Rover's patented Hill Descent Control (HDC) is a standard feature on all our 4 Wheel Drive (4WD) vehicles. HDC assists the driver with controlled descents of difficult slopes by maintaining a constant speed and applying braking separately to each wheel.
TESTED TO EXTREMES
In the ‘neutral sound' of our semi-anechoic chamber we precisely expose the cabin to a range of frequencies and vibrations, making certain that Discovery Sport sounds refined at every speed and across every surface.
In our climate chambers we can recreate some of the most challenging wind conditions Discovery Sport will face. Not just 240km/h blizzard winds, but high ambient temperatures and low airflow situations. Only by pushing all systems to their limits do we develop true reliability.
In real world environments and our climate chambers, we freeze vehicles to -40°C and bake them to 50°C. Key functions and systems are then scrutinised to our exacting standards. So even in the most remote locations, comfort and peace of mind are never far away.
From the icy proving grounds of Arjeplog, Sweden, to Dubai's unforgiving desert sands, we ensure our legendary all-terrain performance is innate in every vehicle. Prototypes are developed across approximately 8,500km of the most demanding off-road routes.
9-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
The lightweight, compact 9-speed Automatic Transmission provides optimum fuel economy and CO2emissions, as well as greater control in low-grip conditions or when towing through the specially designed, ultra-low first gear.
Specifically designed for transverse applications, it is one of the most efficient and technically advanced ever used in a production vehicle. The higher top gear not only reduces fuel consumption but the lower engine revs improve comfort and reduce noise when cruising at a sustained speed.
A standard feature of all of our 4 Wheel Drive (4WD) vehicles, the Torque Vectoring by Braking system enhances the Discovery Sport's agility and stability when cornering. The system constantly balances the distribution of torque between all four wheels, whether on or off-road, to improve grip and inspire confident steering.
Optional on TD4 180PS and Si4 engines (Standard SD4 240PS engine), Active Driveline delivers benefits in both on and off-road situations. In many on-road driving conditions, the system can disconnect drive to the rear wheels and provide maximum fuel economy. The system continuously monitors key vehicle and environmental parameters and will re-engage 4 Wheel Drive (4WD), should it be required, within 300 milliseconds.
Land Rover's commitment to sustainability is manifest in its current range of vehicles, utilising a wide range of innovative and efficient technologies.
ADVANCED LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS
Discovery Sport's lightweight panels and components combined with advanced construction technologies not only deliver outstanding strength and ride refinement but also contribute to heightened efficiencies across the range of engines.
This standard feature, when activated, prioritises the most efficient vehicle settings including automatic transmission, Active Driveline and comfort features like heating and Air Conditioning in order to minimise fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
With its more streamlined profile, Discovery Sport is one of the most aerodynamic Land Rover vehicles. A unique 18" alloy wheel is available for optimised aerodynamics.
Land Rover offer specific derivatives that deliver the lower possible CO2 emissions across our range - we call these our E-capability vehicles. A unique Blue SPORT badge on the rear of the vehicle denotes the lowest CO2 engines of the range which can be as low as 123g/km when you choose 2WD or 128g/km on a 4 Wheel Drive (4WD) manual TD4 150PS diesel.
LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT
Discovery Sport is designed with a life cycle approach, aiming to minimise environmental impact by considering the entire life cycle of the vehicle. From manufacturing, through customer use to end-of-life recycling, each element of the life cycle has been analysed with a view to consuming fewer natural resources, using more sustainable materials and minimising waste.
