After a long period of waiting, speculations, and rumors, we are finally able to share more official details about the upcoming 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport. The Discovery Sport represents a faster and more powerful version of the regular mode. Of course, the Discovery Sport will be not only faster, but smaller version of its big brother.
The vehicle boasts a completely new design, for which we can say it is absolutely perfect. The company used the Discovery Vision Concept as an inspiration for the new Discovery Sport. The upcoming model is loaded to the gills with a great number of latest technologies and it boasts the nicest design you have ever seen. Tastes might be different, but we bet that you will be amazed as soon as you see it. The new 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport is not only a shiny, refined shell but a powerful beast with the mighty engine under its skin. Read our full coverage if you want to find out more about this dynamic and capable machine.
As you already know, the 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport is mostly based on the Discovery Vision Concept and it has most of its astonishing details. The newcomer is a handsome, rounded, and sleek machine. Compared to the regular model, the Discovery Sport looks pretty compact, but if you compare it to the Evoque, it is its larger sibling. The carmaker uses its most stylish model as an inspiration for the rest of the lineup, and that’s something we particularly like. Land Rover usually delights us with aggressive vehicles, but the new Discovery Sport, unlike most of the cars in the company’s lineup, comes with soft and somewhat curved front fascia.
The front end is decorated with trademark mesh grille flanked by newly designed HID headlamps. There are also fog lights with LED technology. The taillights are slim and have the wraparound design which perfectly matches with the rest of the overall look of the car. Thanks to the tweaks, the newcomer is more aerodynamic. The company also claims that it will be quieter because of newly designed wheels. It is 180.7 inches long, 67.9 inches tall, and it weighs 3844.9 lb.
Land Rover Discovery Sport 2016 Interior
The 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport is pretty handsome and attractive, but just wait to hear more about its cabin. It is definitely a magic place. Once you step inside of the cabin, you will see that it is nothing but engineering witchcraft. The vehicle has a similar design as its five-seat competitors, but the carmaker added an additional row of seats to get 5+2 seating arrangement. Well, adult passengers won’t feel comfortable sitting in those seats, but children will find it pretty comfy, though. Thanks to twin-needle-stitched leather, configurable mood lighting, and excellent metal interior trim, the cabin looks absolutely perfect and luxurious. The list of safety and entertainment features will be available soon.
Land Rover Discovery Sport Engine
Powering the upcoming 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport will be a turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder powerplant. If you are familiar with the Evoque, you will notice that the engine is carried over and that the two models share the same engine. The engine will be capable of producing 240 hp and 250 pound-feet of torque. It will be mated to a ZF nine-speed automatic transmission. Since we are talking about Land Rover, we are pretty sure that it will be a capable vehicle that can tackle any kind of terrains. It will be able to hit 7.8 seconds in 60 seconds, with the top speed of 124 mph.
