In Iceland With The Discovery Sport

Test driving a car in harsh driving conditions, beyond that which most drivers will ever experience, was an education in the supreme safety features of the Discovery Sport. Our drive imparted a great feeling of security that is equally important for Discovery Sport owners, whether they are driving on the wintery roads of Iceland or taking their pre-teens to the mall. The challenges of driving in Iceland included roads covered in visible ice, mysterious black ice, white-out snow conditions, hidden road demarcations, steep hills and curvy declines.

 

 
 

 

"5+2"

Whatever the weather.

Land Rover’s new Discovery Sport is a very versatile premium compact SUV and the first member of the new Discovery vehicle family. Designed with a compact footprint that provides seven-passenger seating in a “5+2” configuration, the 2016 Discovery Sport is a combination of  performance, safety and efficiency.  Equipped with  a body shell of high-strength steel and lightweight aluminum, a 240hp turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, nine-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive this vehicle is perfect for areas of inclement weather,  like the Northeast part of the US. In addition to that impressive list of features new Land Rover debuted innovations in the new Discovery Sport, including available Autonomous Emergency Braking and a new touchscreen infotainment system.

 

 
 

 

"The launch of Discovery Sport is a pivotal moment in the 66-year history of Land Rover," said Phil Popham, Jaguar Land Rover Group Marketing Director. "Not only does it mark the introduction of the first new member of our expanding Discovery family, it also brings the versatility of 5+2 seating to the compact premium SUV market."

 

 

The Design of the Discovery Sport sets the tone for a new generation of Land Rover Discovery premium SUVs. A dynamic, emotional design sets the Discovery Sport apart from luxury competitors, yet this new model also offers greater versatility than other premium compact SUVs. Its seven-seat capability and elegantly integrated storage areas make the Discovery Sport an ideal family vehicle. High-quality materials and finishes typical of Land Rover also distinguish the driving experience. The Discovery Sport cabin brings the driver and passengers into fabulous world of Land Rover. To create a family-friendly SUV, Land Rover invited families to the development center and watched as they climbed into a variety of current SUVs and performed tasks, such as accessing third-row seating, syncing electronic devices, installing child seats and placing drink containers in cup holders. The results of the study helped designers shape the cabin design and details.

 

 
 

 

Designed and engineered at the Land Rover Development Center in the UK, the Discovery Sport is produced at the company's award-winning manufacturing facility in Halewood, Liverpool, in the United Kingdom.

The intelligent full-time all-wheel-drive system continuously varies the torque split front-to-rear to deliver outstanding performance and traction on all surfaces. The latest electronically controlled Haldex center coupling can respond to wheel slip and driver demands faster than a purely mechanical coupling. Land Rover Terrain Response® maximizes the capability of the Discovery Sport in challenging conditions. Controlled through an intuitive interface on the center console, Terrain Response® is designed to precisely tailor the vehicle’s steering, throttle response, gearbox, center-coupling and braking and stability systems to the demands of the terrain.
The Discovery Sport check all the boxes, safety, security and style and the car is now a “must-have” for drivers around the world.
