Land Rover Philippines unveiled The New Discovery Sport. Its dynamic design combines 5+2 seating configurability in a more compact footprint than traditional five-seat SUVs.
A suite of Land Rover innovations debut, including the next generation multi-link rearaxle, advanced pedestrian airbag technology, an all-new touch screen infotainment system and state-of-the-art high-strength steel and lightweight aluminium bodyshell for outstanding performance, safety and efficiency.
Discovery Sport is clearly identifiable as a Land Rover but introduces a progressive new design approach to differentiate the Land Rover brand architecture: Luxury (Range Rover), Leisure(Discovery) and Dual-Purpose (Defender).
Discovery Sport has a streamlined design complemented by class-leading usability. All-round visibility is excellent. Simple, clean surfaces and high-quality materials feature throughout.
Lightweight bodyshell, all-new multi-link axle
Monocoque construction combines a mix of high-strength steel, ultra-high-strength boron steel and lightweight aluminium panels. This ensures a strong, stiff and light base for outstanding dynamic performance and high levels of torsional rigidity. An all-new multi-link rear axleheightens agility, increases axle articulation and – together with lightweight aluminum suspension components and carefully calibrated dampers – enables an unrivalled level of compliance no matter what the surface conditions. The new rear axle also reduces interior noise and minimizes intrusion of the rear suspension turrets into the load space.
Exceptionally efficient powertrains
At launch, a range of four-cylinder turbocharged petrol and turbodiesel engines is available. All feature stop-start technology, high-pressure direct injection, low-friction internal components and smart regenerative charging for outstanding performance and economy.
