The new 2015 Discovery Sport will enter the Indian shore via CKD route and will be assembled right here in India at the company’s Pune facility. So it is regardless to say that the SUV will be priced cheaper than the standard LR4 Discovery model, in the range of INR 45-50 lakh (Ex-showroom Mumbai).
As you can see in these pictures, the new 2015 Discovery Sport comes with new styling cues and shares most of its design element with the new generation Range Rovers. Having said that it still carries the same muscular and rugged persona of the older Discovery and Freelander. On the exterior front, the new Discovery Sport comes with xenon headlights upfront and horizontal LED fog lamps. It offers new beefy bumpers with both front and rear skid plates. At the rear you get some brand new arc reactor style LED tail lamps
On feature front the new Discovery Sport comes with new touchscreen infotainment system, leather seat upholstery, dual-zone climate control system, panoramic sunroof, front seats with electric adjustment and USB charging sockets. Also it features a luxurious 5 + 2 seating arrangement in the body size of a regular five-seater SUV, making it quite an accomplishment.
Under the hood the 2015 Discovery Sport will be available both in petrol and diesel variants. The petrol variant will come with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that will churn out 250PS of peak power. As for the diesel variant it will come with a 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine capable of delivering 180PS of peak power. An all-new 9-speed automatic transmission will come as standard in both the variants with an all-wheel-drive system. The new Land Rover Discovery Sport is also much lighter due to a large percentage of aluminium used in its construction.
