2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport
Streamline your life with the HomeLink® system. This universal transmitter can be programmed to operate three home or office wireless controlled systems such as garage doors, gates or lighting. Lost remotes are no longer an issue.
This system features an air sensor that monitors humidity, smog levels and extremes in weather; vents positioned throughout the vehicle enable you to adapt the interior temperature accordingly. Wherever your passengers sit, they can always feel comfortable.
FLEXIBLE SEATING, LEGROOM AND LOADSPACE
With an optional sliding second row that can offer similar legroom to Discovery, and an optional third row, you can adapt the space to meet loading or seating needs.
HEATED AND COOLED FRONT SEATS
Summer or winter, heated and cooled front seats ensure everyone enjoys their chosen temperature. Conditioned air circulates via a fan through ducts in the seat cushion, warming or cooling the surface. Each seat can be individually adjusted.
Adaptive Dynamics with advanced MagneRide™ monitors vehicle movements at least 1,000 times per second. Both on and off-road, driver and road inputs are analyzed instantly to give a feeling of greater control, minimize body roll and a balanced, controlled ride. It even senses off-road conditions and optimizes damping accordingly.
This standard feature when activated prioritizes the most efficient vehicle settings including auto transmission Active Driveline and comfort features like heating and air conditioning in order to minimize fuel consumption and emissions.
9-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
The lightweight, compact 9-speed automatic transmission provides optimum fuel economy, as well as greater control in low-grip conditions or when towing through the specially designed, ultra-low first gear.
TORQUE VECTORING BY BRAKING
The Torque Vectoring by Braking system is designed to enhance agility and stability when cornering. The system constantly balances the distribution of torque between all four wheels, whether on or off-road, to improve grip and inspire confident steering.
ALL TERRAIN PROGRESS CONTROL
With Land Rover at its heart, the Discovery Sport is more than adept in some of the most challenging conditions. Functioning at very low speeds, between 1.1 and 18.6 mph, All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) is designed to provide composed progress on low-grip surfaces at an exact speed set by the driver.
GRADIENT RELEASE CONTROL
Similar to Hill Start Assist, this system is designed to prevent the vehicle accelerating too quickly. If the vehicle stops and starts on an incline, the system is designed to hold the brake before gradually disengaging as you pull away.
Active Driveline delivers benefits in both on and off-road situations. In many on-road driving conditions, the system can disconnect drive to the rear wheels and provide maximum fuel economy. The system continuously monitors key vehicle and environmental parameters and will re-engage 4 Wheel Drive (4WD), should it be required, within 300 milliseconds. A dedicated display on the touchscreen ensures you always feel in control.
ALL-TERRAIN PROGRESS CONTROL
Functioning at very low speeds, between 1.1 and 18.6 mph, All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) is designed to provide composed progress on low-grip surfaces at an exact speed set by the driver.
HILL DESCENT CONTROL
The patented Hill Descent Control (HDC®) is a standard feature on all models. HDC assists the driver with controlled descents of difficult slopes by maintaining a constant speed and applying braking separately to each wheel. The system works automatically to slow the vehicle and maintain the speed relative to the selected gear range and accelerator pedal position.
LANE KEEP ASSIST AND DRIVER CONDITION MONITOR
Optional Lane Keep Assist (LKA) is designed to sense unintentional lane drift and to help steer the vehicle back into its lane. Driver Condition Monitor (DCM) constantly analyzes driving inputs to detect lapses in concentration due to tiredness. When the system determines that a potentially drowsy driver is at the wheel, it suggests taking a break via an audible tone and a notification in the instrument cluster.
AUTONOMOUS EMERGENCY BRAKING
The available Autonomous Emergency Braking system utilizes a forward-facing camera to watch for a potential collision. If one is detected, the vehicle gives an audible forward collision warning. Visual warnings in the instrument cluster are also displayed. If a collision is still anticipated and the driver takes no action, the system is designed to then apply the brakes to help reduce the severity of the possible impact.
BLIND SPOT MONITOR
Available Blind Spot Monitor alerts you of vehicles in your blind spot via an icon displayed in the door mirrors. Building on the benefits of blind spot monitoring, the Closing Vehicle Sensing system uses radar sensors to alert the driver to the presence of vehicles approaching fast from behind when changing lanes by displaying a flashing icon in the corner of the side mirrors.
Optional Park Assist makes parallel and perpendicular parking in tight spaces easier than ever. Simply select the appropriate gear and control your speed with the brake and accelerator pedals. This system will also guide you out of a space, making maneuvers easier. Graphics and notifications aid your progress.
SURROUND CAMERA SYSTEM
Lane Keep Assist detects when your vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of your lane and is designed to gently steer you back. Driver Condition Monitor is designed to detect if you're starting to feel drowsy and gives you an early warning when you need to take a break.
MERIDIAN™ SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM
Meridian Surround Sound System delivers all the fullness and clarity of a live performance through 16 front, side and rear speakers, 825 watts and a dual channel subwoofer - seamlessly brought together using Meridian's exclusive Trifield™ technology.
This option presents key vehicle data such as road speed, gear position and navigation instructions on the windshield, without the need for the driver to take their eyes off the road. A world first, this system features holographic techniques which result in superior color saturation, brightness and contrast. The driver can turn the feature on and off as required.
LAND ROVER INCONTROL® TOUCH™ PRO
Land Rover InControl is our suite of advanced technologies that links both you and your Discovery Sport to the wider world. InControl Touch or the optional upgrade to new InControl Touch Pro are further enhanced by the remote control features included with InControl Remote & Protect™.
LAND ROVER INCONTROL® APPS™
Available Land Rover InControl Apps enables you to use a variety of vehicle-optimized smartphone apps on your touchscreen by connecting your device to the USB port. InControl Apps features an ever-expanding range of services. These help you plan your journey, organize your day and next meeting, book a hotel and discover the world around you.
LAND ROVER INCONTROL® REMOTE & PROTECT™
Check your fuel levels remotely, start your vehicle to cool or pre-heat the interior, find your vehicle in a busy parking lot and even check that you haven't left a window open - all through a handy smartphone app. In the event of needing vehicle assistance, Optimized Land Rover Assistance transmits location and vehicle diagnostic data to the Roadside Assistance Provider. In a more serious incident, SOS Emergency Call notifies the emergency call center to notify the appropriate authorities for your situation.
With five seats configured, there's room for you and four friends to head off to the theater in comfort with an additional 34.6 Cubic Feet of space for any luggage you may have.
When you utilize only four seats and make more of the 39.7 Cubic Feet of space available, bringing home those bigger, bulkier items - like a surfboard - is easier.
What was it you wanted to carry again? With three seats deployed, the vehicle gives you a load-friendly 49.8 Cubic Feet with which to play.
With the rear five seats folded down, the vehicle enjoys a mighty 60 Cubic Feet of cargo space. So you can take your bodyboards or all your dive bags, oxygen tanks and wetsuits down to the ocean with ease.
