  • Land Rover Discovery Sport gets new look, tech upgrade

The setup includes a 48-volt hybrid system that operates as a belt-driven motor generation, as seen on the 2020 Range Rover Evoque. Both form part of the "Ingenium" family and are mated to an updated ZF nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive.

The highest-performing launch version will be the P250 MHEV, which features 246bhp, 269lb ft and a 0-60mph time of 7.1sec. The high power versions also come with mild hybrid tech which improves efficiency.

All versions ride on coil springs, with an Adaptive Dynamics system that uses variable suspension dampers to monitor and adjust to road conditions. The wheelbase of 2741mm remains unchanged.

The new Discovery Sport has been transformed to make it more technologically-advanced with greater practicality to keep its occupants safe and comfortable in all conditions.

The exterior styling of the Discovery Sport has been further refined and now more closely matches the handsome look of the Evoque and larger Velar. The exterior changes focus on new front and rear bumpers, a revamped grille, new lower body mouldings and LED headlights. The firm's Touch Pro infotainment system, which features a 10.25-inch touchscreen and is now compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, is standard.

A real highlight is the realization of Land Rover's Transparent Hood technology the company first previewed in 2014. A lower interface, which incorporates controls for the heating and ventilation systems and Terrain Response, is offered as an option. An optional wireless smartphone charger is offered, as are up to eight USB ports.

The Discovery Sport's driver assistance technology has been upgraded, too.

To maximise efficiency, models with All-Wheel Drive (AWD) benefit from Driveline Disconnect - a Power Transfer Unit at the front axle that disconnects drive to the rear wheels under steady state cruising, reducing frictional losses and re-engaging AWD in less than 500 milliseconds.created to meet the digital demands of a modern family, the latest Discovery Sport is available with a "smart rear view mirror" that transforms into a video screen at the flick of a switch to display what is behind the vehicle in crisp high definition.

The model can also be equipped with ClearSight Ground View. Land Rover says this will ensure better rear visibility when the vehicle is full and in low-light conditions. A number of packs offer extra options. All three rows have newly designed seats, with the second row adding a split-folding 40/20/40 bench that, Land Rover claims, can be configured in two dozen different ways. There's leg room of up to 968mm in the second row and 655mm in the third.

There are also a 180PS and 240PS diesels available, alongside petrol models offering 200PS and 250PS. All S, SE and HSE models feature Silver Atlas detailing on the grille, tailgate finisher and badging scripts, while purposeful R-Dynamic vehicles feature Shadow Atlas exterior accents, contrast stitching on the steering wheel and branded treadplates inside.

Discovery Sport's unique versatility has been further enhanced, with improved small item stowage across all rows and an increase in fuel tank capacity (up to 65-litres).

According to Land Rover: "For regular drivers of the new Discovery Sport, Smart Settings uses artificial intelligence algorithms to learn driver preferences, adjusting massage and seat positions, music and climate settings and steering column positioning to suit each driver".

There is no word on when this heavily update model will be brought to India, where the previous, locally assembled Discovery Sport retails at Rs 44.68-61.95 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
