First launched 5 years ago, the celebrated Land Rover Discovery Sport has undergone an extensive facelift. The all new Land Rover Discovery Sport is without a doubt the world’s most versatile and capable 5 + 2 SUV. From the outside, you may think the 2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport looks unedited, with its trademark Discovery design cues, including the clamshell bonnet, rising beltline and tapered roof.
However, the dimensions have been adjusted to project a more eye-catching visual with new signature LED headlamps at the front and rear, alongside a new front grille and bumpers.
Nevertheless, it’s beneath the new Land Rover Discoveries robust, composed skin where most of the work has been executed. The 2019 Land Rover Discover introduces fresh new technology, improved aesthetics and most importantly more efficient, hybrid engines to Land Rover’s class leading family SUV.
The interior of the 2019 Land Rover Discover Sport has been completely transformed, delivering superior interior space, heightened comfort and the latest generation InControl Touch Pro infotainment. The Interior of the new Land Rover Discovery Sport is much bigger, with increased small item stowage and a flexible load space (up to 1,794-litres) implying that it is the perfect family SUV.
What’s more, the Land Rover Discovery Sport’s practical 5+2 seating layout now features second row 40:20:40 split-folding seats, along with 24 possible configurations, meaning more flexibility for family adventures. The 2019 Land Rover Discovery comes brimming with the finest specification options including Touch Pro infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless charging and 4G WiFi hotspot to keep you and your family connected, informed and entertained on every journey. In addition, the new Land Rover Discovery Sport body is 13% tauter than its predecessor, with rigidly-mounted subframes that reduce noise and vibration intrusion into the cabin, improving comfort and providing maximum safety in the event of a collision.
The new Discovery Sport pushes the boundaries of the premium compact SUV sector with the introduction of electrified powertrains. Under this new Land Rover SUV’s vigorous skin lies new Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA) which accommodates efficient new electrified engines, including a 48-volt mild hybrid from launch, to help reduce emissions and fuel consumption. First launched on the new Range Rover Evoque, the system uses an engine-mounted belt-integrated starter generator to harvest energy normally lost during deceleration and stores it in an under-floor battery.
At speeds below 17km/h (11mph), the engine will shut off when the driver applies the brakes, before redeploying the stored energy to assist the engine under acceleration to reduce fuel consumption. The new engine and transmissions are refined, quiet and efficient to drive, ensuring that whether on the school run, a drive into the country or heading to the Alps, they offer notable efficiency savings.
Available across the range of four-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, the mild hybrid delivers CO2 emissions from as low as 144g/km CO2 (NEDC equivalent) and fuel economy up to 40.9mpg (6.9l/100km). An even more efficient plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) model and three-cylinder petrol Ingenium engine will also join the range later in 2019.
