The new Land Rover Discovery Sport, a premium compact SUV, replaced the Freelander range which was discontinued in 2015.
The first member of the new Discovery family, Discovery Sport, features 5+2 seating in a footprint no larger than existing 5-seat premium SUVs.
The Discovery Sport's interior features high-quality materials and a strong vertical centre console graphic to reflect the premium design of the exterior, while the core Discovery value of versatility is evident everywhere. Storage solutions are integrated into the cabin and up to four 12V power points and six USB charging sockets can be specified for all three rows of seating, allowing multiple electronic devices to be charged simultaneously.
A host of innovations have allowed Discovery Sport to introduce the versatility of 5+2 seating into the premium compact SUV class for the first time. An all-new multi-link rear axle not only provides engaging driving dynamics but it also provides ample and flexible cabin space behind the second row.
The Discovery Sport is comfortable, refined and rewarding to drive on-road, while retaining the breadth of all-terrain capability for which Land Rover is world-renowned, with a raft of innovative technical aids.
Discovery Sport is equipped with the JLR's latest Ingenium diesel engines. Typically 20kg lighter than previous powertrains, it is available in 150hp and 180hp outputs, 4 Wheel Drive as standard and a choice of 6‑speed manual or 9‑speed automatic transmissions. Service intervals are now up to 21,000 miles/2 years. The 2 litre TD4 diesel manual (150hp) with E-Capability boasts a Combined fuel consumption of 57.7mpg (4.9 L/100km).
The Discovery Sport is available in six model levels, the entry level SE, SE Tech, HSE, HSE Black, HSE Luxury and top of the range HSE Dynamic Lux.
