The Discovery Sport is a contemporary, attractive vehicle with a toned body and powerful attitude. Its distinctive outline and beautifully shaped surface all combine to create a sporty car that truly connects with its driver. I took a test drive in the SE 2.0 litre TD4 Automatic Diesel model, accompanied by Brandon Whitaker, Sales Executive at Land Rover East Rand.

Exterior

The Discovery Sport seems to be ready for anything, with its characteristic design elements that complement perfectly balanced sizes and robust, dynamic lines with strong detailing that signal its incredible ability.

Trademark features include the clamshell shaped bonnet and distinctive two-bar grille with hexagonal mesh. The characteristic line of the Discovery Sport’s bonnet with a distinct step into the rising beltline shows a bold stance while the roof slants slightly downward to add extra life.

Interior & features

The appeal of the exterior design moves into the vehicle’s interior with bold horizontal and vertical lines, matched with clean surfaces and outstanding finishes. The inside and outside blend seamlessly to create a vehicle that clearly reflects its spirit of adventure.

The Discovery Sport boasts luxurious materials and a strong centre console design that mirrors the vehicle’s quality exterior. The cabin is high-tech and equipped with 12V power points and USB charging sockets, which allow multiple electronic devices to be charged at the same time.

While I was driving Brandon mentioned some very important features including front and rear parking aid, automatic headlights with rain sensing wipers, cruise control and speed limiter, two-zone climate control, ambient interior lighting, InControl Touch Navigation, front fog lights and rearview camera.

Power & performance

This Discovery Sport is fully equipped with 132kW of power and 430Nm of torque. And, the vehicle delivers remarkable fuel consumption thanks to advanced technology and an all-aluminium construction. The latest generation variable geometry turbocharger maximises peak power for low-speed torque and responsiveness that are uniform, advanced and avoid lag.
