|Land Rover Discovery Sport|
Why is the new model called the Discovery Sport? This is because Land Rover converted the Discovery to an entire family of new vehicles. This will follow existing convention at the company, where the Range Rover Sport sits alongside the larger range-topping Range Rover model. The Discovery Sport borrows its inspiration from the Vision Concept. Being the first member of the Land Rover Discovery family, the Sport offers a dynamic designwith a compact footprint and seven-passenger seating in a ‘5+2’ configuration.

The slim, wraparound headlamps are reminiscent of designs used on Range Rover vehicles. Round daytime-running lights (DRLs) are punctuated at four equal intervals to represent the points of a compass. Halogen headlamps and DRLs are standard, and available trim upgrades include Xenon headlamps and LEDs (light emitting diodes) for the DRLs.
|Striking front design|
The tail lamp design echoes the headlamps’ slim, wraparound design. The roofline slants downward towards the rear to create a dramatic profile. The C-pillar leans forward toward the gloss-black window surrounds, allowing for an optional contrast roof design.
At the rear of the Land Rover Discovery Sport, the spoiler features inner extensions that improve aerodynamic efficiency. The spoiler features an advanced LED light-pipe technology, which creates a slender and elegant ribbon of light. Five distinctive alloy wheel designs are available with Silver or Gloss Black finishes.

A rotary gearshift controller rises silently from the centre console when the engine is started. Steering wheel paddle shifters offer complete driver control for manual gear selection. The electric power-assisted steering system (EPAS) has been tuned for excellent handling on the road.The Land Rover Discovery Sport is equipped with vented 12.8-inch front and 11.8-inch rear disc brakes, providing reassuring stopping power.

Controlled through an intuitive interface on the centre console, Terrain Response is designed to precisely tailor the crossover’s steering, throttle response, gearbox and braking and stability systems to the demands of the terrain. Terrain Response features four settings: General; Grass/Gravel/Snow (for slippery conditions on- and off-road); Mud and Ruts, and Sand.
|Two bar grille|
A prominent centre console groups all controls logically. Behind the three-spoke, multi-function steering wheel is an easy-to-read instrument cluster, with twin analogue dials set deeply into cylindrical housings to shield them from glare.
|Innovative infotainment system|
A 5-inch colour TFT display, positioned between the main dials, presents key data such as fuel levels, gear position, coolant temperature and Terrain Response modes. Upper trim levels feature twin-needle-stitched leather on the upper part of the instrument panel and door surfaces. Configurable mood lighting, controlled via the central 8-inch touch screen, enhances interior ambience.
|Seven seats layout|
The Discovery Sport will be available with two audio systems; a 10-speaker system and an 11-speaker upgrade version (including subwoofer). Land Rover has equipped the Discovery Sport with up to four 12V power points. There are also as many as six USB charging sockets, allowing multiple electronic devices to be recharged simultaneously.
