Autoboland New Discovery Sport

The all new Land Rover Discovery Sport has officially arrived in Auto Boland Land Rover Waterford and is now available for test drives. The latest addition to the Discovery family, this premium compact SUV is more efficient, technologically advanced and versatile than ever.

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 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.

Discovery Sport Features


The new Discovery Sport is available in S, SE and HSE trim, in addition to the R-Dynamic variant, which features Satin Dark Grey alloy wheels, unique front and rear bumpers and Shadow Atlas script on the bonnet and tailgate. Inside, Ebony seats with contrast stitching, black gearshift paddles and unique treadplates provide a sportier character.


The New Land Rover Discovery Sport Features Land Rover's always-on 48V mild hybrid system - an efficient, electrified powertrain, which does not require charging yet minimises fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in a variety of driving situations.

Designed with electrification in mind, the new Premium Transverse Architecture allows for the introduction of a new 48- volt mild hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV) powertrain on Discovery Sport. First launched on the new Range Rover Evoque, the system uses an engine-mounted belt-integrated starter generator to harvest energy normally lost during deceleration and stores it in an under-floor battery.


The latest Discovery Sport is every inch a Land Rover, combining assured all-terrain handling with all-weather capability, including a wading depth of 600mm, All-Wheel Drive and a second-generation Active Driveline system (engine output dependent). Terrain Response 2 automatically detects the surface and adjusts the torque delivery to best suit the conditions, while Advanced Tow Assist makes reversing with a trailer (up to 2,500kg) more intuitive and safer than ever.


New Discovery Sport is built on Land Rover's Premium Transverse Architecture that, alongside the latest all terrain technology, ensures this is an SUV designed to get you and your family anywhere and everywhere safely.

The latest addition to the Discovery vehicle family comes with several new innovative features that reinforce Discovery Sport as a comfortable and composed, go anywhere compact SUV.
