Land Rover is about freedom, whether it is everyday adventures on the school run or taking you and your family beyond the road’s end, filling your lives with new experiences and discoveries in the great outdoors.

The new Discovery Sport, the compact premium SUV, has been transformed to make it more efficient, technologically-advanced and practical, keeping its occupants safe and comfortable in any conditions.

Transformed Interior: Premium cabin delivers great levels of craftsmanship and comfort, while updated exterior enhances distinctive Discovery design

Versatile by design: Practical 5+2 seating enhanced with 40:20:40 second row seats – providing 24 possible seat configurations – offer more flexibility for family adventures

Efficient hybrid-electric power: 48-volt MHEV, four-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines or 3-cylinder PHEV deliver increased customer choice

RDE2 certified: New Discovery Sport (D150 manual Front-Wheel Drive) certified on more-stringent RDE2 emissions standards – six months ahead of January 2020 introduction- reducing harmful NOx particulates entering the environment

Refined capability: New Premium Transverse Architecture delivers greater comfort and surpasses most stringent global safety requirements

Adventures large and small: Bigger inside with more room for everyone, as well as increased small and large stowage spaces, up to 1,794-litres

Technology-enabling capability: New ClearSight Ground View allows the driver to “see through” the bonnet, while a smart high-definition rear-view mirror transforms rear visibility

“Discovery Sport has been a stunning sales success for Land Rover, leading the way for the past three years and selling almost one hundred thousand models in the UK to date. The new model combines everything the Discovery family of vehicles embodies with a greater focus on modern life – whether through the new electrified 48-volt MHEV or PHEV powertrains, the latest technologies that keep you connected at all times, or the durable materials used throughout the cabin. The result is a compact seven-seat SUV that caters for every family, in every eventuality.”

Rawdon Glover, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover UK

The new Discovery Sport is available in Discovery Sport, S, SE and HSE trim, in addition to the R-Dynamic variants that mark themselves out with unique bumpers, Shadow Atlas script on the bonnet and tailgate, and use of body colour on the side sills and wheel arches. Inside, branded treadplates further differentiate it from the core model.

Discovery Sport’s unique versatility has been further enhanced, with improved small item stowage across all rows and a 20 per cent increase in fuel tank capacity (up to 67-litres). With the option of Land Rover’s Activity Key, the compact SUV is more usable than ever and designed to take your family further.

Built on Land Rover’s latest Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA), the Discovery Sport provides greater versatility and refinement with a new body that is 13 per cent stiffer than its predecessor and, together with rigidly-mounted subframes that reduce noise and vibration intrusion into the cabin, ensures maximum safety in the event of a collision.

Designed with electrification in mind, PTA allows for the introduction of new 48-volt mild hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV) powertrains on Discovery Sport. First launched on the new Range Rover Evoque, the system uses an engine-mounted belt-integrated starter generator to harvest energy normally lost during deceleration and stores it in an under-floor battery and is fitted as standard on vehicles with automatic transmissions.

“Building on the success of the original Discovery Sport, this beautifully proportioned vehicle has been refined, enhancing its characterful exterior which compliments the engaging nature of the interior space.”

Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer

New Discovery Sport is one of the first in the Land Rover range to offer a Real Driving Emissions stage 2 (RDE2) certified engine, ahead of their mandatory introduction in 2020. By tracking emissions using a real-world on-road test in addition to traditional laboratory measurements, customers can be certain the latest Ingenium diesel engines available on the compact SUV are cleaner and more efficient than ever.

The most efficient Discovery Sport model will be the Front-Wheel Drive 150HP diesel with manual transmission, offering emissions from as low as 140g/km of CO2 and fuel economy from 47.8mpg (5.9l/100km). To maximise efficiency, All-Wheel Drive (AWD) variants benefit from Driveline Disconnect – a Power Transfer Unit at the front axle that disconnects drive to the rear wheels under steady state cruising, reducing frictional losses and re-engaging AWD in less than 500 milliseconds.

Designed to meet the digital demands of a modern family, the latest Discovery Sport is available with a ‘smart rear view mirror’ that transforms into a video screen at the flick of a switch to display what is behind the vehicle in crisp high definition. Offering a wider (50-degree) field of vision and superior visibility in low light conditions from a camera mounted above the rear window, the mirror ensures rear visibility is not compromised by second and third row passengers or bulky items in the boot.

Ground View technology has been introduced to help drivers navigate high city centre kerbs or tackle rough terrain by projecting camera imagery that offers a virtual 180-degree view beneath the vehicle onto the touchscreen. Effectively making the bonnet invisible, this is the realisation of Land Rover’s Transparent Bonnet technology, first previewed in 2014.

The digital transformation does not stop there. Wireless charging for compatible mobile devices is offered for the first time within the lower centre console, while a 4G WiFi hotspot, and available USB and 12-volt connectivity points on every row, ensure passengers remain charged and connected. Second and third row occupants can also benefit from individual ventilation controls to make the space more comfortable.

For regular drivers of the new Discovery Sport, Smart Settings uses artificial intelligence algorithms to learn driver preferences, adjusting massage and seat positions, music and climate settings and steering column positioning to suit each driver.

The latest Discovery Sport is every inch a Land Rover, combining assured all-terrain handling with all-weather capability, including a wading depth of 600mm, All-Wheel Drive and a second-generation Active Driveline system (engine output dependent). Terrain Response 2 automatically detects the surface and adjusts the torque delivery to best suit the conditions, while Advanced Tow Assist makes reversing with a trailer (up to 2,500kg) more intuitive and safer than ever.

There is a reversing camera as standard on all models, alongside a suite of available advanced driver assistance systems. This includes optional Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist, which centres the vehicle in the lane based on road markings as well as maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle in front. Standard safety features include Lane Keep Assist, Autonomous Emergency Braking and Driver Condition Monitor.
