New Discovery Sport: Enhanced For Every Family Adventure

From overland expeditions to family adventures, Land Rover has been designing vehicles with composure and capability at their heart for more than 71 years. For the last three decades, the Discovery family has combined contemporary SUV design, unrivalled versatility and advanced technology for families with a spirit of adventure.

The new Discovery Sport is the latest addition to the bloodline and pushes the boundaries of the premium compact SUV sector with an enhanced exterior design and transformed interior. New vehicle architecture ensures the fastest-selling Land Rover ever produced is now more efficient, technologically-advanced and versatile than ever, keeping its occupants safe and comfortable in all conditions.

What new with the Discovery Sport?

With new features and the very latest technology, the new Discovery Sport delivers superior interior space and refinement, while its 5+2 interior features a new infotainment interface with the latest connectivity, plus a more flexible seating arrangement with up to 24 combinations for enhanced versatility.

Under the skin, Land Rover’s new Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA) accommodates efficient new electrified engines, including a 48-volt mild hybrid from launch, to help reduce emissions and fuel consumption. The new body is 13 per cent stiffer 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.

Trademark Discovery design cues, including the clamshell bonnet, rising beltline and tapered roof remain, but the new model is a bold exterior evolution. The proportions have been optimised to project a more striking visual with new signature LED headlamps at the front and rear, alongside a new front grille and bumpers.

Inside, the arrival of the digital Touch Pro infotainment system and the introduction of more premium materials throughout transforms the cabin to create a high quality yet practical space. New seats across each of the three rows provide improved comfort and versatility, thanks to the second row 40:20:40 split fold and slide functionality, boosting the possible number of seat combinations to 24 and covering every eventuality – be it the school run or a family holiday.

New Range Rover Evoque Awarded Maximum European Safety Rating

We're so proud of to share this news with our Land Rover Merritt Island family!

The new Range Rover Evoque has been awarded a maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, confirming its status as one of the most refined, capable and safe luxury compact SUVs on the market.

Not only did the luxury compact SUV score 94% for adult occupant safety – the highest score of any Jaguar or Land Rover product to date – but for those with younger passengers in the back, it also received 87% for child occupant safety. It means the Evoque is the latest Land Rover to be awarded a five-star safety rating by Euro NCAP, following the most recent Range Rover Velar and Land Rover Discovery SUV.

Built on Land Rover’s new Premium Transverse Architecture to ensure maximum occupant safety, the new Range Rover Evoque comes with the latest advanced driver assistance features, including Emergency Braking; Lane Keep Assist; Front and Rear Parking Aids; and a Rear Camera as standard, to help avoid road traffic accidents.

This combination of features ensured the new Evoque received the full five-star rating in the toughest Euro NCAP testing programme to date.

Owners can add to this with the addition of two optional packs. The Park Pack adds Park Assist, 360-degree Parking Aid, Rear Traffic Monitor and Clear Exit Monitor, while the Drive Pack offers
Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Assist and High Speed Emergency Braking, for convenience and safety wherever the road takes you.

In addition, a comprehensive system of airbags and restraints throughout the cabin – including a pedestrian airbag – mean owners can rest assured the luxury compact SUV will protect those inside and outside the vehicle.


The suite of advanced technologies on the new Range Rover Evoque includes Land Rover’s ClearSight Rear View Mirror. Transforming into an HD video screen at the flick of a switch, it offers a wider 50-degree field of vision and superior low light visibility by displaying a rear-facing camera feed from the top of the car. It is ideal when carrying passengers in the second row or bulky items in the rear loadspace obscure the view behind.

ClearSight Ground View technology is also available, effectively making the bonnet invisible by projecting camera imagery onto the upper touchscreen to show the driver a 180-degree view under the front of the vehicle. This is useful when negotiating difficult parking spaces, navigating high city centre kerbs or tackling rough terrain.

Straight-six Performance And Efficient Mild Hybrid Refinement For Range Rover

  • Our flagship Range Rover SUV gets Ingenium straight-six balance, refinement and efficiency to enhance its peerless luxury and enduring appeal 
  • Range Rover is cleaner and more responsive thanks to improved efficiency and more immediate power delivery of Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain Apple CarPlay and Android 
  • Latest personalisation options, smarter tech and comfort features reinforce Range Rover’s position at the pinnacle of the luxury SUV segment


Range Rover is renowned for combining peerless luxury and refinement with traditional all-terrain capability. Now, with the latest 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine, enhanced performance and quicker responses go hand-in-hand with improved fuel economy at the pinnacle of the luxury SUV segment.

The latest 400PS* Ingenium engine delivers 550Nm of torque that powers the new Range Rover from 0-100km/h in 6.3 seconds (0-60mph in 5.9 seconds) and to a top speed of 140mph (225km/h).

These features, underpinned by the latest Ingenium petrol engine, form part of a Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain designed to bring enhanced efficiency to the range with fuel economy of 30.4mpg (9.3l/100km) and CO2 emissions of 212g/km** (NEDC equivalent combined).

It is the latest step taken by Jaguar Land Rover to ensure it offers an electrified option on all new models from 2020.

Based around a new start-stop system, the latest 3.0-litre engine is paired with an electric motor that can harvest energy through deceleration and store it in a 48V battery. This energy can then be re-deployed through torque-assist, reducing CO2 emissions and the work load on the engine.

Land Rover Announces New Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition

Get ready to experience the new pinnacle for the Range Rover Velar line-up, the one-year only, SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition.

The new Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition extends the model’s reputation for performance and segment leading luxury with the addition of a much more powerful drivetrain and enhanced interior/exterior design detailing.

Land Rover Announces New Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition

The new Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition holds the distinction of being the fastest and quickest Velar ever; its supercharged 5.0-liter gas V8 engine generates 550hp and 502 lb.-ft. of torque, accelerating from 0-60 mph in as little as 4.3 seconds (0-100 km/h – 4.5 secs) on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 170 mph (270 km/h)1 all while cosseting customers with the same refinement and comfort Range Rover owners know and love.

Uprated brakes and suspension components, plus bespoke settings for everything from the powertrain to the driver assistance systems, ensure the SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition mixes the personality of a performance car with the go-anywhere capability of all Land Rover models2.

The powerful new range topping model is distinguished by a number of visual enhancements and bespoke trim finishes, delivering a more purposeful appearance and heightened attention to detail while maintaining the vehicle’s perfectly optimized proportions and distinctive silhouette that won it the 2018 World Car Design of the Year award.

The Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition retains the all-terrain capability and comfort customers expect from a Range Rover, with an even more rewarding and engaging driving experience. The result is a composed and luxurious SUV that looks, sounds and feels unique.

The Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition sounds like no other SUV, but the most driver-focused model in the range is also as practical as ever. The exceptionally large 15.7 cu ft luggage compartment is unaffected, while the flexible 40:20:40-split rear seats allow customers to vary the loadspace depending on their requirements. A larger 21-gallon fuel tank (up from 16.5-gallon) also promises a longer range with fewer stops to the gas station.

2019 Discovery Sport: What You Need to Know

The 2019 Discovery Sport combines design excellence, engineering integrity and exceptional versatility to create a premium compact SUV.

2019 Discovery Sport: What You Need to Know

INTERIOR

The desirability of the exterior design continues into the cabin with bold horizontal and vertical lines, complemented by clean surfaces, superb finishes and optional premium leathers that give a luxury feel to the highly versatile interior.

2019 Discovery Sport: What You Need to Know

The inside and outside seamlessly blend into a vehicle that clearly communicates its Discovery DNA, while firmly looking forward. This spirit of adventure is reflected in the vehicle's interior, which has been designed with you at its core. It features high-quality materials and a strong vertical center console design to reflect the premium exterior. The cabin is equipped with up to three 12V electrical outlets and five USB charging sockets. These can be specified for all three rows of seating*, allowing multiple electronic devices to be charged simultaneously.

EXTERIOR

This is a modern, relevant and compelling vehicle, with its well-proportioned compact body and purposeful stance. Its distinctive silhouette and beautifully sculpted surfaces all combine to create a vehicle that truly connects on an emotional level.

 

Discovery Sport is ready for anything. Characteristic design cues complement perfectly balanced proportions. Strong dynamic lines and robust detailing signal incredible breadth of capability. Signature features include a clamshell hood and distinctive two-bar grille with hexagonal mesh. The fast hood line with a pronounced step into the rising beltline conveys a dramatic stance, while the roof tapers subtly downwards, adding extra dynamism.

SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do and consequently all powertrains on Discovery Sport have been optimized to enhance sustainability by minimizing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Gas engines feature the latest high-pressure direct injection technology and state-of-the-art low-friction designs which have been carefully developed to minimize frictional losses, while the 9-speed Automatic Transmission is specified with the latest low viscosity transmission fluid to enhance performance.

An advanced intelligent Stop/Start system is standard on all automatic models, which automatically shuts down the engine in just 300 milliseconds when the vehicle comes to rest. A smart regenerative charging electrical system has also been introduced which has an intelligent power management system to prioritize charging when the vehicle is decelerating, capturing the wasted kinetic energy and reducing the fuel demand of the electrical system.

With up to 35 lbs of recycled plastic on the Discovery Sport Turbocharged i-4 engine, as well as up to 49 lbs of renewable and natural materials in each vehicle, we are taking big steps in reducing our environmental footprint.

Get behind the wheel of the 2019 Discover Sport and experience some luxurious automotive adventure.
