About the Land Rover Discovery Sport

The Land Rover Discovery Sport perfectly combines a handsome design and an opulent interior with commanding performance and authentic off-road capability. The Discovery Sport is powered by a standard 2.0L turbocharged engine producing 246 horsepower. It continues to possess the brand’s go-anywhere reputation by offering All Terrain Response® and a towing capacity of up to 4,409 pounds. When it comes to the cabin, the Discovery Sport offers luxurious features to match its off-road utility. You’ll find yourself surrounded by premium materials including genuine leather upholstery, authentic wood accents, and aluminum trim throughout the interior. Did we mention the Discovery Sport has an optional third row? That’s something that its top competitors simply can’t match.



What The Critics Say

“With a dashboard design that mimics what’s in flashier and pricier Land Rovers, the Discovery Sport maintains the brand’s upscale image. The cabin now offers sustainable materials and more seat configurations for better versatility. The seats in our test vehicle were comfortable enough for several long-haul trips lasting four hours or so.”

– Car and Driver

“Overall, we’re pleased to see that the Discovery Sport has matured into a more well-rounded and refined SUV. It’s worth checking out, especially if you find that other options such as the BMW X3 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC are a little too bland for your tastes.”

– Edmunds


What’s New for 2023

In terms of updates, only a handful of small revisions have been made to the proven formula of the Land Rover Discovery Sport for 2023. SE grades and above now come standard with the upgraded Meridian sound system for a superior listening experience. Both adaptive cruise control and Amazon Alexa integration are now standard features across the entire model range. Otherwise, the Land Rover Discovery Sport continues to be an excellent choice for luxury buyers searching for a comfortable and capable SUV.

Land Rover Discovery Sport Capability

Impressive Capability

The Discovery Sport is powered by a 246-horsepower 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that is smoother and more responsive than ever before. You’ll also enjoy off-road capability its competitors simply can’t match, thanks to a lightweight body structure, Torque Vectoring System, and Terrain Response® system. The Torque Vectoring system gives you extra confidence on tight corners and Terrain Response® gives you the capability to drive where other luxury SUVs fear to venture.

In addition to conquering challenging mountain passes, the Discovery Sport is equally at home on smooth downtown boulevards. An advanced collection of safety features including Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Monitor, Surround View Camera System, Lane Keep Assist, and Park Assist add even more peace of mind behind the wheel. There’s even an available Head-Up Display that projects key vehicle information right in your line of sight, helping you stay focused on the road ahead.
