TECHNOLOGY

INNOVATION

INGENIUM ENGINE

Our new engine has been designed and engineered to deliver effortless performance, greater efficiencies and unparalleled refinement. Typically 20kg lighter than previous powertrains, it is available in 150hp and 180hp, 4 Wheel Drive and a choice of 6‑speed Manual or 9‑speed Automatic Transmissions. Service intervals are up to 21,000 miles/2 years.

LIGHTWEIGHT SUSPENSION

Constructed from aluminium and lightweight steel, the suspension struts advanced hydraulic rebound technology reduces noise entering the cabin after impact. The system also ensures undulating surfaces are almost smoothed out and there’s no kickback on your arms or the vehicle’s chassis.

PERFORMANCE

ADAPTIVE DYNAMICS

Adaptive Dynamics provides the optimum balance of ride and control. It does so by monitoring the vehicle’s movements at least 1000 times a second and adjusting the damper settings between soft and firm as your inputs or the road dictate. This happens virtually instantaneously to minimise body roll, deliver greater control and ensure a composed, flat ride. It even senses off-road conditions and optimises damping accordingly.

9-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

The lightweight, compact 9‑speed Automatic Transmission provides optimum fuel economy and CO2 emissions, as well as greater control in low‑grip conditions. Or, when towing, through the specially designed ultra‑low first gear. The transmission is extremely robust and perfectly complements the vehicle’s all‑terrain capabilities while delivering exemplary levels of refinement and efficiency.

CAPABILITY

TERRAIN RESPONSE

Terrain Response takes capability to new heights. It optimises the vehicle’s engine, transmission, differentials and chassis systems to maximise driveability, comfort and traction no matter what the terrain. Just select the mode that suits the conditions: General Driving, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts and Sand. The vehicle always delivers a confident, assured drive.

GRADIENT RELEASE CONTROL

Similar to Hill Start Assist, this system prevents the vehicle accelerating too quickly. If the vehicle stops and starts on an incline, the system holds the brake before gradually disengaging as you pull away.

ALL TERRAIN PROGRESS CONTROL

Functioning at very low speeds, between 1.8kph and 30kph, All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) helps the driver maintain a steady speed in challenging conditions so you can concentrate on steering and finding your way through obstacles. It also allows you to pull away smoothly and evenly, even on low‑friction surfaces such as ice, snow or wet grass.

ELECTRICALLY DEPLOYABLE TOW BAR

The optional electrically deployable tow bar is stowed discreetly behind the bumper, providing a clean and attractive finish.

HILL DESCENT CONTROL

Land Rover’s patented Hill Descent Control (HDC) is a standard feature on all 4WD vehicles. It assists the driver with controlled descents of difficult slopes by maintaining a constant speed and applying braking separately to each wheel. The system works automatically to slow the vehicle and maintain the speed relative to the selected gear range and accelerator pedal position.

WADE SENSING

Feel safer crossing a stream, a ford or negotiating floodwater. Wade Sensing measures the water depth using sensors on the underside of the door mirrors and provides real‑time information in relation to the vehicle. This data and the maximum wading capability are relayed via the Touchscreen, providing you with the correct knowledge to behave appropriately.

DRIVER AIDS

LANE KEEP ASSIST AND DRIVER CONDITION MONITOR

This technology senses when your vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of your lane and gently steers you back. Driver Condition Monitor detects if you’re starting to feel drowsy and gives you ample warning to take a break.

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL AND QUEUE ASSIST

When you’re cruising on the motorway or travelling in slow-moving traffic, this system will help keep your vehicle a safe distance from the one in front should it slow or stop. When the vehicle speeds up again, so does your Discovery Sport.

AUTONOMOUS EMERGENCY BRAKING

If a potential collision is detected, this system displays a forward collision warning, giving you time to take action. If you don’t respond, the system will apply the brakes to help reduce the severity of any possible impact.

BLIND SPOT MONITOR WITH REVERSE TRAFFIC DETECTION

This technology alerts you to vehicles in, or quickly approaching, your blind spot. It does so through a small warning light in the corresponding door mirror. Reverse Traffic Detection warns of hazards approaching on either side of your vehicle via both audible and visual warnings. So you know what’s behind you even when the view is obstructed.

INTELLIGENT PARK ASSIST

Our Park Assist system makes parallel and perpendicular parking straightforward by steering your vehicle into a suitable space. Simply select the appropriate gear and control your speed with the brake and accelerator pedals. This system will also guide you out of a space, making manoeuvres easier. Graphics and notifications aid your progress.

SURROUND CAMERA SYSTEM

Providing a 360° view around the vehicle, this system’s cameras help with various manoeuvres; from parking by a kerb and getting in and out of a space, to towing. You can also zoom and pan to see objects that may be below your line of sight so you can drive accordingly; the relevant information appears on the Touchscreen.

COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE

HEATED AND COOLED FRONT SEATS

Summer or winter, heated and cooled front seats ensure everyone enjoys their chosen temperature. Conditioned air circulates via a fan through ducts in the seat cushion, warming or cooling the surface. Each seat can be individually adjusted.

HEAD-UP DISPLAY

This option presents key vehicle data such as road speed, gear position and navigation instructions on the windscreen, without the need for the driver to take their eyes off the road. A world first, this system features holographic techniques which result in superior colour saturation, brightness and contrast. The driver can turn the feature on and off as required.

CLIMATE CONTROL

This system features an air sensor that monitors humidity, smog levels and extremes in weather; vents positioned throughout the vehicle enable you to adapt the interior temperature accordingly. Wherever your passengers sit, they can always feel comfortable.

HOMELINK®

Streamline your life with the HomeLink® system. This universal transmitter can be programmed to operate three home or office wireless controlled systems such as garage doors, gates or lighting. Lost remotes are no longer an issue.

INFOTAINMENT

MERIDIANTM DIGITAL SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM

Land Rover has partnered with Meridian, a world leader in high-performance audio technologies and digital sound processing, to develop advanced sound systems for Discovery Sport. The optional 825W Meridian Digital Surround Sound System includes 16 speakers and a dual channel subwoofer, delivering crystal clear highs and rich, deep bass notes throughout the cabin. You hear your music just how you want to.

INCONTROL PROTECT

Your smartphone acts as a portal to connect with your Land Rover using InControl Protect. You can check your fuel levels remotely, find your vehicle in a busy car park, record your journeys or even check you haven’t left a window open. Optimised Land Rover Assistance is also included which, in the unlikely event of a breakdown, can transmit diagnostic and location information to your recovery company. In serious incidents, SOS Emergency Call notifies the emergency services of your location.

INCONTROL SECURE

If someone breaks into your vehicle or tries to move it illegally, InControl Secure activates when InControl Protect is triggered. You are alerted and the vehicle is tracked until its location is pinpointed for recovery by the relevant authorities. Even if it is stolen with your keys, you can notify the tracking call centre using the InControl Remote App.

REAR SEAT ENTERTAINMENT

Passengers in the rear of the vehicle can enjoy individual entertainment with two 8” screens built into the front headrests. With a pair of WhiteFire® digital headphones each, one USB port in the second row and a dedicated remote control, they can choose film, music, games or even television.
