The very name Land Rover creates a world of opportunity for the driver to explore and New Discovery Sport lives up to the highest expectations. Assured, intuitive and effortlessly at home both on and off road, the vehicle has superb driving characteristics which are further enhanced by innovative technologies such as Terrain Response®.
Whatever the conditions, this system adapts the vehicle’s engine, gearbox, differentials and chassis to optimize the drive. It has been tested in some of the world’s most gruelling landscapes and on purpose-built rigs to help you go Above and Beyond.
Land Rover Discovery has earned an enviable reputation for its ability to tow up to 3500kg and New Discovery Sport is quickly becoming the next generation to become synonymous with the discipline. Handling a maximum of 2200kg, it provides the highest levels of capability and capacity, matching the very best in the compact SUV arena.
Fitted as standard to all New Discovery Sport models, Trailer Stability Assist further enhances its towing credentials. The same system as used on Discovery, detects when a dangerous trailer sway situation is developing, and helps to regain control by gradually reducing speed through cutting engine power and applying the brakes, giving you the confidence and control for every journey.
New Discovery Sport can carry most loads with ease. The vehicle enjoys a maximum loadspace of 1,698 litres or, whilst carrying five passengers, up to a healthy 981 litres. Added to which, the maximum roof load including rails, is a generous 75kg, the same as you get on Discovery. So you should always be able to take whatever you need, wherever you want to go.
The vehicle’s wading depth is a maximum 600 mm; compared to Land Rover Discovery’s 700 mm, giving you the control you need to cross a ford or stream on your families’ latest adventure. However, we would still suggest you check the depth of any water you wish to cross before attempting to do so.
New Discovery Sport thrives on all manner of tough terrains. Whether you’re crossing gravel, sand or heading down some muddy track, the vehicle’s Terrain Response® and state-of-the-art rear suspension provide the capability to keep going anywhere. This new Coil Suspension set-up has a constant ride height and maximum ramp angle of 21° compared to Discovery’s Air Suspension system that has an adaptable ride height and maximum ramp angle of 27.3° when raised.
