New striking design and efficiency boost for Land Rover Discovery Sport

Land Rover has unveiled a luxurious new version of the Discovery Sport at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt.

Striking Design

Most evidently the new Discovery Sport features a number of exterior enhancements to emphasise its on-road, sporty presence. Outside modifications include: Narvik Black exterior details, body-coloured mouldings and door claddings as well as the choice of a unique new 19-inch wheel design in Satin Dark Grey, or a 20-inch Gloss Black wheel. Inside, the cabin features new colours and trim details for an overall powerful impression that sets it apart from its predecessor.

New Technologies

All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) is featured for the very first time on the HSE Dynamic Lux. This advanced system is similar to cruise control and enables drivers to set and maintain a steady speed, specifically for off-road use. Once in motion, it allows the vehicle to maintain a speed between 1.2mph and 18.6mph. In addition to this the new Discovery Sport also comes with a “Launch” feature which enables the SUV to pull away effortlessly on problematic surfaces such as ice, snow or wet grass.

Engine

Land Rover has announced that its innovative Ingenium diesel engine will be introduced to the Discovery Sport. The new Discovery Sport engine will be available with two power outputs, 150HP and 180HP. The Ingenium-powered 150HP engine will be designated as an ‘E-Capability’ vehicle; with a blue ‘sport’ badge at the rear of the vehicle highlighting it is the most efficient variant. The Discovery Sport E-Capability produces 123g/km CO2 and the two-wheel drive option which features the 150HP Ingenium Diesel engine, offers improvements in both fuel consumption and efficiency in comparison to the four-wheel drive model.

The Discovery Sport has enjoyed a highly successful launch, with sales reaching nearly 30,000 in the first half of 2015.
