Driving is a simpler, more enjoyable experience than ever before, with new features including Dynamic Stability Control, Roll Stability Control and Corner Brake Control. These help monitor how your car is behaving and work with you to deliver the best performance possible, whether on grass, mud, snow or sand, with Terrain Response allowing you to change driver settings to suit your needs.
No matter the conditions, the selection of four-cylinder turbocharged petrol and turbodiesel engines will help you get there. All feature stop-start technology, high-pressure direct injection, low-friction internal components and smart regenerative charging for outstanding performance and economy.
The Si4 2.0-litre petrol engine offers 240PS and 340Nm of torque, together with fuel economy of 35.2mpg and 191g/km CO2 emissions. The all-alloy engine is light and compact, and typically 20% more fuel efficient than larger engines that produce equivalent power. Petrol models are fitted with the state-of-the-art ZF 9HP48 nine-speed automatic transmission.
If you'd prefer a diesel, there is a choice of 2.2-litre turbodiesel engines available. The TD4 offers 150PS and as little as 149g/km CO2 emissions, while the SD4 has a performance-focused engine offering 190PS and 159g/km. The SD4 can accelerate to 60mph in just 8.4 seconds and has a top speed of 117mph. These are offered with either a six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmission. The range is set to be added to in 2015, with the debut of the more efficient ED4 turbodiesel engine, which offers CO2 emissions of just 119g/km and enhanced fuel economy.
The new Discovery Sport is available with a range of advanced safety features, such as Blind Spot Monitor, Park Assist, and Reverse Traffic Detection to inform the driver of vehicles approaching during reverse manoeuvres. Other features include Wade Sensing, when crossing fords or flooded roads, and Autonomous Emergency Braking, which uses cameras to detect potential collisions and can break automatically if warnings aren't acted upon.
The cabin is beautifully furnished in double-stitched leather and available in a range of colour schemes, including Ebony, Cirrus, Glacier, Ivory, Almond and Tan. Other design features include a choice of seven alloy wheel designs, front and rear undershields, full panoramic roof, and the option of stainless-steel sports pedals. There's also the option of 'The Black Pack', which includes gloss-black grille, bonnet and tailgate lettering and a choice of 19" or 20" alloy wheels.The interior is deceptively spacious too, despite its compact size. The flexible 5+2 style seating is fully adjustable and can fit between four and seven passengers, offering up to 1011mm of legroom and a 1698-litre load space that rivals that of a Range Rover when the seats are flattened.
The Discovery Sport features an all-new premium infotainment system, with an 8-inch touchscreen display and 800x480 pixel resolution for simple use. It allows drivers to monitor and control a wide range of functions by dragging, scrolling or swiping content, just as they might on a smartphone.The home screen provides easy access to the Meridian audio system, climate, telephone and navigation functions, while users can swipe to an additional two screens to access a range of other functions, including WiFi hotspots, 360° Surround Camera System, 4x4i and Wade Sensing™ off-road displays, Eco Data and ambient lighting.
