Fuelling the spirit of adventure, the vehicle consists of improved features that not only enhance the capability of the vehicle but also elevate the complete driving experience. It further strengthens the distinctive design and versatility that has made the Discovery Sport one of the leading models in the Land Rover portfolio.”
Talking of the new 2020 Land Rover SUV’s characteristic design, the neatly proportioned body and practical stance of the new Discovery Sport SUV is enhanced with new premium LED headlights with Daytime Running Lights and rear LED lights. The desirability of the exterior design continues into the cabin. The refined interiors lend a sense of calm, as one enters the vehicle. The interior delivers elevated levels of comfort, enhanced stowage space and a new SportShift gear selector crafted from premium materials which have been responsibly sourced. The bold horizontal and vertical lines coupled with the fixed panoramic roof, further enhance the engaging interiors.
With regard to infotainment and technology, the new screen and centre console converts the Discovery Sport’s interior into high quality and sophisticated space. The cabin gets air ionization technology to enhance the well-being of the occupants.
Advanced and responsive Land Rover InControl Touch Pro infotainment comes as standard and is available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Moreover, Smart Settings use AI algorithms to understand driver preferences, to adjust massage and seat postures, climate and music settings and steering wheel positions to suit any driver.
Wireless charging for compatible mobile devices is also introduced for the first time within the lower center console, along with 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. Infotainment is taken a notch higher with Meridian Audio providing state-of-the-art entertainment. InControl Remote & Protect App allows you to interact with your Discovery Sport from anywhere. You can see your vehicle’s data remotely – from fuel level to door and window status, emergency call (eCall) and breakdown call (bCall) facility and more.
The ClearSight Rear View Mirror is now available on the Discovery Sport, transforming the rearview mirror into an HD video screen at the touch of a button. It displays a rear-facing camera feed onto the mirror, ensuring the driver’s view remains unrestricted by passengers or any large items at the rear.
Built on the new Land Rover Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA), the Discovery Sport allows great capability. The Discovery Sport has all-wheel drive and hill descent control to make the hardest of drives seem effortless and with All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC), you can maintain a steady speed in the most challenging conditions. The ATPC works seamlessly alongside the standard Terrain Response 2, All Wheel Drive (AWD) traction and braking systems. Every all-wheel-drive Discovery Sport uses Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVBB) system which maximizes control and handling even through the tightest of corners. And all this is made possible while retaining a class-leading wading depth of 600 mm.
