Coventry Motors Corporation has just unveiled the refreshed Land Rover Discovery Sport, bringing with it an updated look, more standard tech, and fewer seats due to the deletion of its third-row. As Land Rover’s best-selling model, the British premium SUV brand did not want to completely change its recipe for success, but rather, it wants to enhance what is already an off-road capable premium crossover SUV.
From the outside, the Discovery Sport gets a redesign that’s heavily inspired by the all-new Evoque. Its grille pattern has been revised while its front bumpers have been restyled to look sportier. There are two variants on offer: S and R Dynamic S. The R Dynamic is mainly an aesthetic upgrade, giving the Discovery Sport a more aggressive look. Whichever variant you choose gets you automatic LED head and taillights, sweeping LED turn signals, 20-inch alloy wheels, rain-sensing wipers, powered tailgate, as well as heated power-folding mirrors.
The interior gets quite an upgrade, too, featuring more premium materials and nicer build quality. Both variants get leather seats, 10-inch Touch Pro infotainment system, passive entry with push-button start, power-adjustable driver and front passenger seats, and dual-zone climate control. Specifying the R Dynamic variant adds a slick 12.3-inch fully-digital instrument cluster and contrast piping for the leather seats.
Under the hood of both Discovery Sports is a 2.0-liter inline-4 Ingenium turbo diesel engine, producing 150 hp and 380 Nm of torque, sending power to all four wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission.
As for driver-assist and safety features, the Discovery Sport is fitted as standard with Terrain Response 2, electronic stability control, hill start assist, hill descent control, lane-keeping assist, as well as a reverse camera.
The refreshed Land Rover Discovery Sport is now on sale in Land Rover’s dealership in EDSA Greenhills with a price of P4,490,000 for the S and P4,790,000 for the R Dynamic.
