JLR India today launched the new and enhanced Discovery Sport in India. The Discovery Sport is versatile by design offering up to seven seats and a dramatically refined new interior that exudes modern luxury.

The Discovery Sport is available in Dynamic SE with two powertrain options – the 2.0 l petrol engine delivering a power of 183 kW and 365 Nm torque and a 2.0 l Ingenium diesel engine delivering a power of 150 kW and 430 Nm torque.

Rajan Amba, Managing Director, JLR India, said: “The new Discovery Sport is versatile by design and perfect for active families that like to hit the road cocooned in luxury. It is a characterful, modern, compact SUV with a versatile interior, breadth of capability as well as intuitive technology, that makes every journey for the family one of utmost comfort and safety.”

Ready for Family Adventure

Available with up to seven seats, Discovery Sport’s versatile and spacious interior ensures generous room and comfort for all, with up to 24 possible seat configurations. The second row of seats slides and reclines with a 40:20:40 split, while a load area of up to 1 794 l with the rear seats folded down accommodates spontaneous adventures. A powered tailgate makes loading and unloading hassle free.

Every Discovery Sport now features a digital instrument cluster and steering wheel-mounted gearshift paddles as standard, while the redesigned and simplified centre console boasts an elegant new floating 28.95 cm (11.4) curved glass touchscreen. The latest Pivi Pro infotainment set-up features permanently accessible sidebars, which provide shortcuts to key vehicle controls and functions, such as media, volume, climate and navigation. This allows users to access 90 per cent tasks within two taps from the home screen.

Luxurious Interior

Luxurious cabin quality comes from finely crafted, tactile materials. The interior feels bright, spacious and airy with stadium-style seating for optimum visibility in all three rows. The panoramic glass roof further adds to the sense of space.

Discovery Sport’s refined interior features a new gear shifter surrounded by a natural shadow oak trim finisher and an elegant three-spoke multi-function steering wheel.  Discovery Sport Dynamic SE features DuoLeather interiors with up to two colour options.

Wireless Connectivity and Convenience

Convenience comes as standard with Wireless Apple CarPlayTM making it easy to control major functions. Android Auto® also features as standard for the ultimate connectivity. The redesigned centre console liberates stowage space and accommodates Wireless Device Charging offered as standard, giving Discovery Sport one of the most spacious open front console stowage areas in its class for superior everyday family practicality. In addition, two USB-C chargers are available in each row to keep everyone fully connected and charged, with 12 V power in the second row and loadspace. Clients also benefit from third row climate control and USB-C charging.

Occupant Wellbeing

Discovery Sport features one of the most sophisticated interior air quality technologies available thanks to Cabin Air Purification Plus. With PM2.5 Filtration and CO2 Management, the system helps to promote wellbeing for the whole family, as well as heighten alertness for the driver by monitoring and controlling CO2 levels inside. The advanced system combines nanoe™ X technology to combat pathogens and help significantly reduce odours, bacteria and allergens.

All Round Vision

Discovery Sport also offers one of the most comprehensive suites of camera technologies in its class. Greater driver reassurance comes courtesy of 3D surround cameras and ClearSight Ground ViewTM which offer feeds viewed on the 28.95 cm (11.4) touchscreen, and ClearSight Rear View MirrorTM which provides an unobstructed view behind the vehicle, regardless of what is in the back.

The Discovery Sport also features subtle exterior updates highlighting its distinctive Discovery DNA.

Dynamic models are more assertive and purposeful, with a contrast roof and exterior accents – including Discovery script, grille, lower body sills and lower bumpers – all featuring a distinctive Gloss Black finish. Gloss Black front claw detailing on the bumpers and wheel arches amplifies the purposeful stance, with the three-line signature of the front air intakes a clear Discovery design trademark.

Alloy wheel design comes in the bold 48.26 cm (19) Diamond Turned finish. Varesine Blue is added to the curated exterior paint palette.
