PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Red Cross Discovery Emergency Response Vehicle

Behind the glitz and glamour of the 2018 Paris Motor Show, Land Rover presented a one-off Discovery that it created for the Red Cross. The model is called the Red Cross Discovery Emergency Response Vehicle, and it was developed as part of an 18-month collaboration between Land Rover’s Special Vehicles Operations (SVO) and the Austrian Red Cross. The Discovery is unlike standard Discovery models. Among other things, it features state-of-the-art communications technology that’s there to help save lives.

PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Discovery Sport

Land Rover is already working on a next-generation Discovery Sport, but with the model still a few years away from arriving, a facelifted version of the current Discovery Sport is making test rounds. The prototype is wrapped in heavy camouflage, but the overall shape of the SUV suggests that there could be a lot of changes made to the updated Discovery Sport ahead of the next-generation model’s arrival in a few years.

PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Discovery Sport Landmark Edition

Introduced in 2014 as a replacement for the Freelander, the Land Rover Discovery Sport needs only a few years to become the fastest-selling Land Rover of all time. The crossover’s popularity prompted Land Rover to create a range of special-edition models, the latest of which is called the Landmark Edition and it’s available for the 2018 model year.

Another reason why Land Rover chose the Discovery Sport to be the designated nameplate for special-edition model is because it was also the first model to be built on the company’s 70th birthday on 30 April. The vehicle will thus be used to support a number of projects in 2018, starting with a community resilience project in Scotland. The Landmark Edition adds unique color and trim combinations to the popular crossover, pairing them with a powerful version of the 2.0-liter Ingenium diesel engine. Let’s find out more about it below.

PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Discovery Sport

Land Rover is apparently working on the next generation of Discovery Sport. It comes a bit early since the current model has only been out since 2015 and the next generation isn’t expected until 2020 at the earliest. Then again, automakers need plenty of lead time in building a new model. Spy shots were gathered of a test mule driving along European streets and tale-tell signs of change are seen hidden within the bodywork.

Nothing official is known about the next-generation Discovery Sport at this point, though Land Rover will likely strive for better fuel economy with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, expanded diesel options, improved driving characteristics, and a more luxurious interior – all while still being the smallest and least-expensive vehicle in Land Rover’s fleet.

Continue reading for more information.

Exterior

  • Possible new platform architecture
  • Reworked front fascia
  • New exhaust system suggests powertrain changes

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport - image 747294
“Speculation is running ramped that the next Discovery Sport will have an entirely new architecture.”

These spy shots give away a few clues. First, check out that fuel door. It’s massive compared to the current design and likely indicates big changes underneath. Speculation is running ramped that the 2020 Disco Sport will have an entirely new architecture, meaning things like the fuel filler neck don’t exactly line up with the current body. If true, that means this test mule could be running the new chassis with the current body shell bolted on to fool onlookers.

The second clue is the exhaust. A look up its skirt reveals a single muffler with dual tips at the vehicle’s left-hand side. The current SUV features a single exhaust tip at each end of the bumper.

Then again, these changes could indicate updates to the powertrain. Currently, the Discovery Sport’s diesel exhaust fluid reservoir tank is located under the hood and requires a special DEF bottle to refill. Land Rover could be relocating this filler neck to under the fuel door. The new exhaust layout also suggests powertrain changes and the need to better control diesel emissions. Still, we won’t know until more information comes to light.

As for the front, this test mule has a slightly revised fascia with very minor changes. The lower chin sticks out further than before and with a sharper edge, giving the crossover a more aggressive appearance. The rest seems oddly unchanged despite the swirly camouflage.

Interior

  • Expect an updated dashboard
  • Possible influence from Range Rover Velar
  • Seven seats over three row
  • Folding second- and third-row

2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport - image 566814

Note: 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport pictured here.

“Expect an updated dashboard with hints from Land Rover’s swankier models like the Range Rover Velar.”

Our spy photographer was unable to snap shots of the interior, but we’d bet it would have been a jumbled mess of wires and testing equipment, anyway. For the 2020 production version, we’d bet on an updated dashboard layout with hints and cues from Land Rover’s swankier models, say the Range Rover Velar and new Range Rover Sport. Upper trimmed Discovery Sports might come with digital gauges, an improved head-up display, and other nifty Jaguar Land Rover technology. Expect to pay a premium for those, though.

The next-generation Discovery Sport will surely continue to seat seven people in a 2+3+2 configuration. The rear seats will still fold flat for hauling cargo. Active families should find the Disco Sport rather handy.

Drivetrain

  • Expect a plug-in hybrid option
  • Possible updates to 2.0-liter Ingenium engines
  • Full-time AWD
  • Off-road Modes

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport - image 747296
“The next Discovery Sport will indeed have a plug-in hybrid powertrain as an option.”

The current Land Rover Discovery Sport is offered with both gasoline and diesel engines in a range of power levels. Outside the U.S., the Disco Sport is available with the 2.0-liter TD4 with 150 horsepower or 180 horsepower. Those who like shifting their own gears will appreciate the manual transmission available with those engines. A nine-speed automatic is optional. There is also the 2.0-liter SD4 turbodiesel with 240 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. The gasoline option also displaces 2.0 liters but makes 240 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. Both the upper turbodiesel option and the gas engine come standard with the nine-speed gearbox. Here in the U.S., we’re confined to the 2.0-liter gasoline engine with 237 horsepower as standard or the 286-horsepower version optional in the HSE and HSE Luxury trims.

As for the future, we know Jaguar Land Rover has committed to electrifying every model it makes, so the next Discovery Sport will indeed have a plug-in hybrid powertrain as an option. The specifics of the driving range and battery size aren’t yet known, obliviously.

The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport can actually be had without 4WD, believe it or not. Outside the U.S., the Pure E-Capability trim level with its efficiency-tuned, 150-horsepower turbodiesel is front-wheel drive. Land Rover could expand the FWD’s reach to more markets in hopes of selling to the eco-conscious crowd. Perhaps FWD will be paired with the hybrid powertrain, leaving 4WD to be an optional extra.

As for the turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline and diesel engines, expect only minor updates since they fairly new. They belong to the JLR’s Ingenium engine family and are as cutting-edge as current production engines go.

Nevertheless, expect better efficacy throughout the engine lineup and the mileage star to be that plug-in hybrid. Hopefully, the U.S. will finally get the turbodiesel option, too.

Pricing

The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport starts at $37,795 here in the U.S. Opt for the range-topping HSE Luxury trim and order the 286-horsepower 2.0-liter, and the price jumps to $52,895 before other options. That’s a pretty good swath for an entry-level crossover from a premium brand. Expect Land Rover to continue offering this pricing strategy, though adjusted for inflation and the perpetual increases in new-vehicle prices. We’d guess the 2020 or 2021 Discovery Sport will start around $40,000 and venture into the low $60,000 range.

Competition

Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class


2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class - image 634318

The proliferation of compact crossovers prompted Mercedes to develop the GLC-Class for the 2016 model year. Think of it as a lifted C-Class sedan with more rugged styling. It offers good ground clearance for all-weather driving yet all the niceties of a luxury sedan.

Under the hood of America’s GLC 300 is a 2.0-liter turbo-four making 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque.
A nine-speed automatic transmission is the only choice, but a good one. Customers can choose between RWD and AWD. The sprint to 60 mph only takes 6.3 seconds in the RWD model. Off-roading is possible, though the Land Rover is better adept at the rougher stuff.

Prices for the 2017 model start at $40,050 for the RWD and $42,050 for the 4Matic AWD version. Options are plentiful and expensive, so the bottom line can grow by $20,000 in some cases.

Acura MDX


2017 - 2018 Acura MDX - image 732413

For those needing three rows like the Land Rover Discovery Sport, but without the off-road chop and minus the poshness of a Mercedes, the Acura MDX is a great option. The MDX has room for seven people and their stuff thanks to its relation to the Honda Pilot. The MDX builds off the Pilot by adding a swankier dash with dual center screens, a push-button gearshift, and more features.

Power comes from the familiar 3.5-liter V-6, which makes 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. A nine-speed automatic does the shifting. Putting power to the ground is Acura’s optional (and fancy) SH-AWD system. It features a torque-vectoring rear differential that also helps in dry weather handling. A hybrid powertrain is also available, too, with a 3.0-liter V-6, 321 horsepower, FWD, and an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 26 mpg city, 27 mpg highway, and 27 mpg combined.

Pricing for the 2018 MDX starts at $44,200 and crests into the upper $50,000 range.

Conclusion


2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport - image 747291

It’s hard to tell what Land Rover has up its sleeve at this point, but the Discovery Sport is clearly about to change. Whether it’s a refresh or a complete generational update, that’ has yet to be seen, but we’re betting on the latter. Adding a plug-in hybrid powertrain to an existing platform isn’t an easy proposition, after all.

The new Discovery Sport will undoubtedly be more advanced, more efficient, and more techie while still appealing to active families who might occasionally venture off the beaten path.

  • Leave it
    • Still several years off
    • Kid-only third row
    • Price likely to rise

PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Discovery Turbodiesel Pulls 121-Ton, Seven-Trailer Semi Truck

Land Rover wants you to know its fifth-generation Discovery SUV is capable – so capable, in fact, that it can flat-tow a semi truck with seven trailers weighing a total of 121 tons a distance of 10 miles. Is this a publicity stunt that’s well beyond what anybody would attempt in their luxury SUV? Of course. But, Land Rover’s point is that the Discovery and its 3.0-liter V-6 turbodiesel Td6 are built to do the extremes. Even with the marketing hype, I can say I’m honestly impressed.

This sort of extreme towing test isn’t new. Land Rover had done similar feats before, as had other automakers like Volkswagen, Porsche, and Toyota – not to mention Chevrolet, Ford, and Ram. Nevertheless, these demonstrations show the importance of low-end torque and traction. Obviously, the Discovery Td6 has plenty of both. Its turbodiesel makes 443 pound-feet of torque that’s routed to all four wheels through a two-speed transfer case with low-range gears. The torque-multiplying transfer case is key to making 443 pound-feet do the work of the semi truck’s turbodiesel engine and its 2,200 pound-feet of torque. The Disco’s use of low range also explains why it topped out at 27 mph. Keep in mind, the Discovery Td6 is rated to tow 7,716 pounds.

What Land Rover didn’t attempt was slowing all that weight. Braking is a huge limiting factor when it comes to max tow ratings. After all, a vehicle and its load have to stop eventually. The Discovery’s brakes just wouldn’t be up to the challenge. That’s partly why the tractor sits between the Discovery and the trailers – to operate each trailers air brakes. That, and because the Discovery doesn’t have a fifth-wheel hitch.

Interestingly enough, a seven-trailer road train is illegal in Australia. The government down under limits road trains to “only” four trailers. Here in the U.S., the DOT caps the number at two. Land Rover says it had to get special permission to conduct the stunt and contract with local authorities to temporarily close the road.

PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Discovery SVX

Land Rover has finally debuted its concept of what the hard-core off-road Discovery SVX will be when it enters production in 2018. The long-rumored SVX version of the new Disco is the latest creation from Land Rover’s in-house skunkworks and customizer, Special Vehicle Operations, otherwise known as SVO. Designed to handle even worse terrain than a standard Discovery, the SVX boasts an upgraded suspension with more flex and ride height, restyled bumpers for improved approach and departure angles, exposed tow hooks, and even a recovery winch mounted in the rear bumper. Naturally, the interior is given a flair of outdoorsy extremism.

The Discovery SVX project takes inspiration from the classic Camel Trophy and G4 Challenge events, which used to pit man and machine against incredible odds in extended cross-country driving through remote areas with basically no roads. While both off-road events have been dead since 2000 and 2008, respectively, Land Rover has tried to infuse that adventurous spirit into the Discovery SVX. Perhaps one day we’ll see Land Rover organize another G4 Challenge, but until then, let’s check out its new Discovery SVX.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar Land Rover’s SVO Unit Comes Through On Its Word With The Discovery SVX

Back at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March, Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations boss John Edwards hinted at the possibility of the Land Rover Discovery getting its own SVO treatment. He didn’t dive into any specifics, opting only to say that if SVO did create one, it would be somewhere in the middle “between Paris Dakar and Camel Trophy,” two famed off-road races. I can’t tell if just-unveiled Discovery SXV is capable of competing in both races, but give credit where it’s due: JLR’s SVO unit came through on its word.

The Land Rover Discovery SVX is the result of what happens when a goal is set and that goal is accomplished. On paper, it’s billed as the most powerful version of the Discovery ever created, and the numbers certainly speak for themselves as the Discovery SVX is capable of producing 525 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque, thanks in large part to the SUV carrying a much bigger 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine compared to the smaller 3.0-liter V-6 mill that all other Land Rover Discovery SUVs come in. It’s not just about the engine either. SVO understood that for the Discovery SVX to reach its full off-road potential, it needed significant changes to its mechanical and handling faculties. The division did just that, and a whole lot more. Certainly, the results speak for themselves.

PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Discovery by Startech

Startech may be overshadowed by its parent company, Brabus, in the tuning world, but the tuner has proven itself to be as adept in building kits for a wide range of vehicle brands. One of those brands is Land Rover, and as fate would have it, Startech is presenting its latest program for the Discovery SUV at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The program has a more style-over-substance feel to it. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, especially for an SUV like the Discovery, which caters to more than just the off-road adventurers of the world. Those who prefer a proper dress-up for their SUVs are the targets here, hence the lack of an engine upgrade that puts more power to the SUV’s 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 engine. It is fitting, too, that with Startech’s kit for the SUV arrived just as the Discovery underwent its biggest stylistic change since 2009. Put all of these elements together and it’s easy to see why Startech wants to be one of the first in the tuning scene to have one in the market. Other tuners like Kahn Design will inevitably have theirs at some point, but for now, the spotlight is squarely on Startech to make a positive impression on owners of the new SUV. Considering its pedigree as a company owned by Brabus, it wouldn’t be hard for Startech to live up to its parent firm’s reputation.

PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Puts the Discovery Sport Against a Dog Sled in New “Horsepower vs Dog Power” Promo Ad

I’m one of those people who loves a good promotional video when I see one. I embrace them, take my time watching them, and in some cases, watch them repeatedly. It’s safe to say, though, that Land Rover’s new promotional ad for the Discovery Sport isn’t going to be one of those times. I do get the urge to create and develop one, so I’m not going to criticize Land Rover for the thought and purpose of the ad itself. The content of the video, on the other hand, leaves a lot to be desired.

First, let’s set up. The ad is basically a promotional stunt for the Discovery Sport, which took to an underground snow tunnel in Finland to compete against a Finnish mid-distance dog sled champion Laura Kääriäinen and her team of six beautiful huskies. The objective, it seems, is to have the Discovery Sport, with JLR principal engineer Karl Richards driving it, race against Kääriäinen in the snow-covered tunnel. The usual song-and-dance number of whoever crosses the finish line first wins it. Great, right? It probably would’ve been if the whole execution of the video made it feel completely fabricated from start to finish.

Sure, certain elements of it looked cool, including seeing the Discovery Sport putting in some good power slides on the snow. The huskies were cool too, as were the visuals. But, if Land Rover really wanted to make it a more compelling race, it probably shouldn’t have resorted to using a dog sled champion to do it and then hiding behind what I will admit is a catchy “horsepower vs dog power” tag line. Catchiness aside, it’s also unrealistic to think that a 286-horsepower SUV can lose to a dog sled team, “obstacles” notwithstanding. And, the Discovery Sport only won the race by “a nose?”

Really?

PostHeaderIcon 2017 Land Rover Discovery Leaked

The new Land Rover Discovery is slated to make its debut at the Paris Auto Show in less than 24 hours, but thanks to a hiccup on Land Rover’s Australian website, landrover.com.au we’ve gotten an early full look at the next-gen discovery. The website posted an image of the Discovery, as well as a short video that essentially let the cat out of the bag a little early. And despite the teaser image of the front end that we’ve already seen, there’s quite a bit more to talk about now that we can see the sides and rear without any camo.

To start off, the boxy look of the last-gen model is a thing of the past with the front hood taking on a more refined look and the A-pillars taking on a longer presence to go with a better angle. These things alone bring the Discovery into the modeler times, but there’s still more. The rear doors have been completely redesigned. The door glass is all one piece, and the doors are now boomerang shaped in the rear. The taillights wrap around the corners of the rear and have a striking resemblance to the headlights. The rear end is now rounded on all sides, giving the rear end a bubbly look while the roof almost looks like it was placed on top of the vehicle after it was built. It’s a unique design, but it somehow works.

In one of the screenshots from the short video found on the website, we get a decent glance at the rear end. The only thing really out of whack here is the off-centered license plate which actually looks really awkward. Otherwise, this next-gen model is a huge departure from any Discovery that came before it and should prove to be quite successful for Land Rover in the coming years. We’ll learn a lot more about this baby early tomorrow as the press days at the Paris Auto Show kicks off, so stay tuned for updates and official images.

Discovery Sport HSE Dynamic Lux-0

Land Rover decided not to bring a significant new model to the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show so they won’t overshadow Jaguar’s big moment with the F-Pace. But then they went ahead and introduced the new Discovery Sport Dynamic Lux at the show, which is so good it makes think twice before ordering an F-Pace.

Mind you, at £46,000 Land Rover Discovery Sport Dynamic Lux is a lot pricier than a similarly powered Jag F-Pace. The SUV comes with a  TD4 180PS powertrain an automatic gearbox. It’s a practical arrangement that makes the car more suitable for off-road use than anything else. The new Disco features All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) system which adapts the vehicle’s behaviour according to the terrain and even has a dedicated ‘Launch’ feature for pulling away smoothly on low friction surfaces.

Discovery Sport Dynamic Lux also features Adaptive Dynamics with MagneRide with a driver-selectable Dynamic mode on the Terrain Response system. That, and the Active Driveline system takes care of the ‘Sport’ part of the Disco. And of course, there is the looks with the unique exterior design accents and interior detailing, mostly in gloss black garnished with red.

Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director and Chief Creative Officer said: “The Discovery Sport Dynamic has been created to heighten the design appeal of the Discovery Sport. Gloss black is a key accent colour differentiator on the exterior, while the use of body coloured bumpers and door claddings emphasise its on-road, sporty presence. With the launch of the Discovery Sport HSE Dynamic Lux, we are offering our customers greater choice in the look and feel of their vehicle.”

Kahn Land Rover Discovery Sport-0

Ground Effect Edition is the name British tuner Kahn Design has given to their first upgrade package for the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport. Kahn, as you may know, starts kind of mellow with only a few goodies and work their way up to a full-on package that gives the car a proper makeover.

So this is only the beginning for Kahn Land Rover Discovery Sport, but it’s a good one nonetheless. The car is equipped in this treatment with a set of 8.5” X 20”RS600 wheels complete in Silver Platinum with 275X40X20” tyres, Brake Callipers finished in Liquid Red and Kahn bonnet and tailgate lettering. These seemingly insignificant changes do have a profound effect on the way the car looks.

The interior upgrades have been more substantial as Kahn Land Rover Discovery Sport gets a special Red Herringbone Leather treatment with full upholstery of the front and rear seats, including the headrests and armrests. Meanwhile the door card centre and steering wheel centre hub are wrapped in Alcantara, and door card tops, dashboard, centre glove box in leather, and vented foot pedals and door entry sill plates in machined aluminium.

PostHeaderIcon Justin Bell Tests the Land Rover Discovery Sport in Iceland

Land Rover Discovery Sport

We have already seen the new Land Rover Discovery Sport being put through its paces, and proving itself, on the purpose-built off-road courses in UK and US. But as convincing as those courses are, there is always the nagging sense that they were manmade and therefore sort of predictable.

To properly test the off-road credentials of a SUV like Land Rover Discovery Sport you have to take it to place where the nature is at its harshest. That’ll be Iceland then, and your adjudicator is Justing Bell who, although used to much faster stuff, is not a stranger to rough off-roading.

This episode of the world’s fastest car show reminds us of an old Top Gear episode in which Jeremy Clarkson drove an LR4 up a massive huge mountain in Scotland. Justin’s effort wasn’t as cool as Jeremy’s, but then he doesn’t have the resources that were at Jezza’s disposal at the time.

In order to get out of its own way when the going gets rough, Land Rover Discovery Sport relies on a new version of the Terrain Response system, the main features of which include:

  • Hill Descent Control® (HDC) maintains a set speed while negotiating steep inclines off-road
  • Gradient Release Control® (GRC) progressively releases the brakes when moving away on an incline for maximum control
  • Roll Stability Control (RSC) designed to detect the onset of a rollover and applies the brakes to the outer wheels to bring the vehicle under control
  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) corrects oversteer and understeer by reducing engine torque and/or applying brakes to individual wheels
  • Electronic Traction Control (ETC) reduces torque and/or applies a braking force to individual wheels to prevent wheelspin
  • Engine Drag Torque Control (EDC) helps to prevent lock-up under heavy engine braking in slippery conditions by increasing engine torque to the affected wheels

PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Discovery Will Get Extreme Off-Road SVX Version

It appears Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations is ready to get dirty – as in building a hardcore off-road version of the upcoming, next-generation Discovery. Currently known as the LR4 here in the States, the upcoming LR5 will come standard with all the off-road abilities Land Rover is known for, but SVO’s version will take things to the extreme with a so-called SVX version.

PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Plans New Heritage Division

Land Rover estimates that 70 percent of vehicles it has built built since the marque’s introduction in 1948 are still in existence — maybe not operational, but they do exist in varying states, between sitting in a showroom with delivery miles and sitting in a field with weeds growing through the engine bay. There’s a pretty good business opportunity to be found somewhere between the two.

Following the path set by the Jaguar Heritage division, Jaguar Land Rover has established the Land Rover Heritage division, which will supply genuine parts built using original tooling methods for Land Rovers that have been out of productions for over 10 years. These include body, trim and service parts for the Range Rover Classic (the first Range Rover) and salvage and service parts for the P38 Range Rover and Discovery 1 and 2. Selected new parts will also be available for Series I, II and III Land Rovers, with more gradually becoming available soon after.

The new division launches at the 2015 Techno Classica show in Essen Germany, where this lovely blue, basically new Classic Range Rover will provide a showcase for Land Rover Heritage parts and services.

PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Discovery Sport

It took months of rumors, spy shots, speculation and leaks, but the newest member of the Land Rover family is finally official and we have all the details. Say hello to the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Much like the Range Rover Sport, the new Discovery Sport is a smaller and faster version of a car that wears a similar name. It has an all-new design that is very similar to the Discovery Vision Concept that bowed earlier this year. The new model is loaded to the gills with new technology, and it features some of the nicest design touches ever fitted to a Discovery.

To make the most of this new, stylish shell, the engine and modern nine-speed ZF automatic transmission from the Range Rover Evoque are combined with an advanced AWD system to create a dynamic and capable machine.

If you want to know all the exact details like horsepower, ride height and available extras just click through to read our full coverage. We even have a whole collection of nice high-res photos to go with it. Enjoy.

Updated 06/16/2016: Our friends at INK and FP Creative sent us this fun video showcasing the Discovery Sport’s most important attributes in an unusual fashion — by taking it apart! Check it out below or here.
