New Discovery Sport is the next generation of compact SUV from Land Rover, specially designed with advanced technologies to aid your driving experience, no matter what the situation. From performance and capability to infotainment and connectivity, the vehicle has a wealth of state-of-the-art innovations that have been tested in extremes of temperature, altitude and terrain. These all combine to deliver a more intuitive, confident and enjoyable drive for you and your passengers.
Fitted with an 8-inch touch screen and 10 speakers as standard, the telematics and infotainment systems are integral to the vehicle’s styling and enjoyment. An optional Meridian™ audio system with 17 speaker surround sound is available which delivers a depth and clarity of sound that would not be out of place in a concert hall. Another optional feature, Dual View Touch-Screen, allows both the driver and passenger to view separate content via the infotainment screen at the same time. These technologies ensure everyone will arrive at your chosen destination feeling relaxed and entertained.
This SD Card-based system has many optimum features that enhance the driving experience. Voice destination entry, 3D screen graphics, auto prompt for parking and coffee stops, historical traffic data and maps that you can update are all included. The SD card is housed alongside the USB ports in the cubby box for ease of access.
With the introduction of optional Configurable Mood Lighting, New Discovery Sport takes ambient refinement and personalisation to new levels. The system uses a combination of sophisticated coloured LED lights; you can alter the colour and shade of the cabin lights to create the right mood. There are five colours available ranging from white to red, for every situation and mood. This feature is fitted as standard to HSE Luxury models.
Tested to the very limits in both virtual simulation and real-world situations, New Discovery Sport offers the Pedestrian Protection System as standard, a first in the compact SUV segment. Fitted as standard to all models, an airbag is mounted at the trailing edge of the bonnet panel and housed in a cover, deploying upon impact from the base of the windscreen to help protect pedestrians. This innovative technology is one of the contributing factors to New Discovery Sport being awarded both the 5 Star Euro NCAP and WhatCar? Safety awards.
Make parking in the city easy with Park Assist; a collection of technologies to help you find, park and exit any space. New Discovery Sport offers optional Parallel Park which, having identified a suitable parking space, automatically steers you into the space as you operate the pedals. Another optional feature, Perpendicular Park, comes into its own in tight spots and car parks. It automatically assesses whether the chosen space is wide enough before steering the vehicle centrally into place as you operate the pedals. The full suite includes both the above and Parking Exit which offers the same assistance to manoeuver back out of the space. All of these are available as standard when you opt for the HSE Luxury derivatives.
IMPROVING DRIVER AWARENESS
Using an innovative stereo digital camera system, New Discovery Sport helps keep you safe on the road. The Autonomous Emergency Braking system assesses the risk of a collision and should there be an imminent one, emergency brakes are automatically applied. The system can help avoid collisions at speeds below 31mph and it may mitigate severe damage at speeds up to 50mph. And rest assured; the driver hears and sees a warning signal before the brakes are engaged.
In addition, the Lane Departure Warning system is designed to warn the driver via a vibration in the steering wheel if the digital camera detects an unintentional drift out of the lane, helping you feel in control at all times. The system is deactivated below 37 mph though so as to not interfere with city driving.
With up to six optional USB ports on board New Discovery Sport, charging tablets, games consoles or smartphones has never been easier. Wherever you are in the world, New Discovery Sport ensures you and your family can always effortlessly and conveniently stay connected and remain entertained.
You can access a 3G hotspot with Land Rover InControl™ WiFi. This feature enables up to eight devices to operate simultaneously, which means passengers can work whilst on the move or simply be entertained on their tablets or smartphones. Staying connected has never been easier.
