Discovery Sport to make waves
There’s a new arrival in the Discovery family. This month, Land Rover will bring the Discovery nameplate to a wider audience, with the introduction of the new Discovery Sport − a vehicle which has all the qualities of the tried-and-tested original, but in a more compact package, and at a more affordable price. Land Rover’s plan is to have a Discovery family, just as there is a Range Rover family, of capable all-terrain vehicles.
Its premium interior is generous in terms of load space and seating flexibility. In a first for the brand, the Discovery Sport features a sliding second row of seats, allowing the balance of luggage-to-passenger space to be tailored for the occasion. It’s also available with 5+2 seating.
Both on- and off-road, its advanced drivetrain endows it with breadth of capability, thanks to Terrain Response. This system enables a driver to customise the vehicle’s engine- and gearbox behaviour to suit driving conditions. As with the current-generation Discovery, Terrain Response will be a standard feature on the Discovery Sport; and, combined with the advanced new rear-suspension system, the result is genuine all-terrain talent.
