Land Rover Discovery Sport – An Off-Road Luxury You Deserve

23.09.2016 г.

Land Rover Discovery Sport

The Land Rover Discovery Sport 2016 can competitively set itself apart from the rest of the compact luxury SUVs in the market, thanks to it being a real off-road vehicle. Despite the usual luxury chops that helps it keep up with majority of its German competition, not like them, Discovery Sport can tackle off-road terrain that would otherwise leave the other SUVs at the side of the road.

What Meets the Eye

The Discovery Sport is much shorter compared to its competitors yet this is wider that gives it a better edge as far as stability is concerned. Its windshield is steeply sloped, keeping wind noise to almost nonexistent levels which depend on speed. Its short overhangs at the rear and front give this departure angles and generous approach, meaning that this can tackle steep slopes without any scraping and it can also ford streams as much s 23.6 inches deep. A good aesthetic bonus is its body color C-pillar that resembles a bladed weapon.

A Look Inside

With an interior that bristles with pragmatic style, the interior of Discovery Sport offers a similar mix of off-road utility and the plushness of luxury-brand that other SUVs deliver. The blocky and efficient theme feels great in line with off-road adventures yet its 8-way power front seats, leather upholstery and deep-dish seating will make you remember that this is truly a luxury SUV. Its raised second row seats recline and slide, easily accommodating occupants of 6 feet, while the smart interior packaging provides more usable space for cargo.

Under the Hood

The Land Rover Discovery Sport 2016 still comes with the same engine that this had the previous year, no matter what the model is. Its 240 horsepower of 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine can send power through the 9-speed automatic transmission to Haldex all wheel drive system, seamlessly varying the power between the rears and front wheels, which depends on where its system can sense that the tires have the finest grip. It is a setup that can ruggedly work well in the latest Discovery Sport.

Driving Impressions

This year’s Land Rover Discovery Sport boasts of some serious luxury credentials. For instance, the well controlled road noise and wind noise make it very easy to enjoy some great conversations with the passengers on the second row even at highway speeds. The ride is very comfortable and firm, with the steering being nicely responsive and weighted. It is also very easy to see outside and its 4-cylinder engine of 2.0 liter and the 9-speed automatic transmission provide lots of forward thrust even though it is not really as smooth as the rest of its competition. But, it is actually when the road turns to dirt or completely disappears that the Land Rover Discovery Sport manages to shine through.

If you are searching for a luxurious looking SUV that can confidently make it through the toughest road conditions, then, the Land Rover Discovery Sport is a great choice that you will surely love to own.
