Smart, connected technologies and the latest visibility-enhancing features ensure the new Discovery Sport meets the digital demands of the entire family, delivering greater convenience, confidence and safety.
ClearSight Ground View – derived from Land Rover’s ‘invisible bonnet’ concept – uses cameras in the front grille and on the door mirrors to project a feed onto the central touchscreen showing what is ahead of and underneath the front of the vehicle. With a virtual 180-degree view, it helps maintain visibility when negotiating extreme terrains, potholes or high city-centre kerbs.
Jaguar Land Rover’s smart rear-view mirror is available on Discovery Sport for the first time, transforming into an HD video screen at the touch of a button to display a rear-facing camera feed onto the mirror that ensures the driver’s view remains unrestricted by passengers or large items in the back. It also provides a wider 50-degree field of vision using a camera positioned above the rear window and delivers clearer visibility in low light conditions.
Designed with a protective lip and hydrophobic (water-resistant) coating to prevent mud and water soiling the lens, in the unlikely occurrence that the camera is ever obscured, drivers can change back to a traditional rear-view mirror at the flick of a switch.
Central to the digital interior experience is the Touch Pro infotainment system, now standard on Discovery Sport and introducing a new 10.25-inch high-definition touchscreen, which allows familiar controls such as swipe and pinch zoom for ease of operation. A hidden-until-lit lower interface is also available, allowing control of the heating, ventilation and climate system, Terrain Response 2 and Advanced Tow Assist.
The driver can intuitively control a wide range of technologies from their fingertips. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto offer full smartphone integration, while Click & Go rear-seat tablet holders bring additional charging capability for the kids, alongside a 4G WiFi hotspot for up to eight devices, six USB slots and three 12-volt points found throughout the cabin.
Occupants in the front row benefit from the introduction of wireless charging technology (located below the infotainment screen), while second row passengers can now also control the temperature and fan speeds with the introduction of controls at the rear of the centre cubby.
Smart Settings technology (optional feature) is introduced to the Discovery family and uses artificial intelligence algorithms to learn the habits of drivers over time. The ‘self-learning’ technology recognises the driver from their key fob or phone and will set up their seat and steering column position on approach, allowing for up to eight profiles to be registered.
After a few journeys, Discovery Sport remembers the driver’s preferred temperature settings, media preferences and commonly dialed numbers depending on the time or day of the week – it will even remember seat massage settings.
Discovery Sport is the perfect balance of Land Rover capability and modern-day convenience. Every bit of technology throughout the cabin is there to make this vehicle easier to use, whether improving rear visibility, remembering the driver’s cabin preferences or keeping everyone safe. This compact SUV is so much more than the best in its class, it is a class act.

Terrain Response 2, Land Rover’s pioneering all-terrain technology, allows drivers to choose from four modes (Comfort, Sand, Grass-Gravel-Snow, Mud & Ruts) to optimise performance and capability, while an Auto mode enables the system to select the most appropriate mode for the conditions.
Advanced Tow Assist is available to make towing easier and safer than ever, allowing the driver to focus on steering the trailer and not the difficult counter-steering of the vehicle. The maximum towing capacity of new Discovery Sport remains 2,500kg.
Safety comes as standard on the latest Discovery Sport, with features such as a front and rear parking aid, rear camera, Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist, Driver Condition Monitor and Cruise Control and Speed Limiter.
Customers can add to this with a series of feature rich packs. The all-encompassing ‘Driver Assist’ pack comes with Land Rover’s Co-Pilot Drive and 360-degree Surround Camera, alongside Blind Spot Assist, High Speed Emergency Braking, Park Assist, 360-degree Parking Aid, Rear Traffic Monitor and Clear Exit Monitor.
This can be broken down into the more focused ‘Drive’ pack, which adds Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, High Speed Emergency Braking and Blind Spot Assist; or the ‘Park’ pack, which comes with Park Assist, 360-degree Parking Aid, Rear Traffic Monitor and Clear Exit Detection.
The Discovery Sport can also be fitted with cabin air ionisation technology that removes impurities from the environment to ensure the wellbeing of occupants. When paired with Air Quality and pollen filters, Land Rover engineers have ensured a more relaxing and refreshing experience for the family on every journey.
All in-car features should be used by drivers only when safe for them to do so. Drivers must ensure they are in full control of the vehicle at all times.
