Land Rover Discovery Sport was has been on the markets since 2015 as an entry-level model, replacing the LR2. As a decent volume seller and it has been upgraded periodically with new features. Smaller than the Discovery, it’s a highly capable unit-body SUV competing against premium crossovers like the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC.
For 2018, the biggest news is that the Discovery Sport gets a new engine with more power. The high output 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder making offers 286hp while the base engine doles out 237hp. Both engines are mated to a paddle-shifting 9-speed automatic.
An available third row option expands seating capacity to seven passengers. Land Rover calls it a 5+2.
In its construction, it uses aluminium and hence lighter than the LR2.
All-wheel drive is standard and the Haldex system provided shifts power between the front and rear wheels, up to 100 percent at each end, and then between the left and right wheels, depending on where the traction is needed. Dial-a-terrain response offers pre selected normal, grass/gravel/snow, mud/ruts and sand modes, along with a new dynamic mode.
The Discovery Sport can tow up to 5500 pounds with standard Tow Hitch Assist, Tow Assist, and Trailer Stability Assist functions.
