New Discovery Sport: Intelligent design with the family in mind
Jaguar Land Rover
The new Land Rover Discovery Sport has been designed to keep you safe and comfortable no matter where you are – whether you are taking on the school run or on holiday in the Alps.
Given a new striking exterior, which combines its unique character and purposeful stance, it receives new front and rear bumpers, front grille design and LED lights.
Customers now have the choice of 12 exterior paint colours and the option of choosing a contrast black roof. They can also spec their Discovery Sport with Land Rover’s Black Pack, which includes Narvik black detailing on the grille, fender vents and, bonnet and tailgate lettering.
It is also the first time Land Rover has introduced a 21-inch wheel to the Discovery Sport, with customers now able to choose 12 alloy designs ranging from 17 to 21-inches.
There are three trim levels available, which feature Silver Atlas detailing on the grille, tailgate and badging script, while R-Dynamic models get Shadow Atlas exterior accents, contrast stitching on the steering wheel and branded treadplates.
Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer, said: “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.”
It is inside the new Discovery Sport where its versatility comes to the fore, with every seat being given an equal focus for improved comfort. Customers can also choose to upholster their car in a sustainable, non-leather Luxtex material – a recycled polyester microfibre, which is soft, lightweight and tear-resistant.
Inside also features two digital screens, including the standard fit 10.25-inch Touch Pro infotainment system and a new centre console punctuated with soft rotary controls and buttons that are hidden until lit.
The Discovery Sport also receives a new multifunction steering wheel with capacitive switches and a 25 percent increase in storage space.
