The Land Rover Discovery Sport has been given technology and powertrain updates for 2021.
Headlining the upgrades is the addition of the Pivi infotainment system from the new Defender. The system is faster thanks to a separate battery, it’s ready to use as soon as it’s switched on.
Software updates are available over-the-air via an embedded data connection. Owners will be able to update maps and add vehicle features without having to visit a dealer.
Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included as standard, two phones can be connected at once: one for phone calls, and another for media.
The Discovery Sport will also be available with the brand’s second-generation Activity Key wristband and an all-new cabin air filtration system that can trap fine particulate matter.
As is now the way with Jaguar Land Rover, the Discovery Sport range has been trimmed to just five variants across R-Dynamic S, R-Dynamic SE and R-Dynamic HSE trim levels.
The new model year also sees the introduction of new diesel engines with 48V mild-hybrid technology.
Opening the range is a P200 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine offering 147kW of power and 320Nm of torque.
Moving up the range nets the new D165 2.0-litre turbo-diesel augmented by a 48V mild-hybrid system which develops 120kW and 380Nm.
The D200 is also a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel with 48V mild-hybrid tech, however, it’s tuned to deliver 150kW of power and 430Nm of torque.
Range-topping R-Dynamic HSE will be powered by the P250 petrol unit that offers 184kW of power and 365Nm.
Every variant gets an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as standard.
The updated Discovery Sport is available to order now.
