Modern family life requires versatility and practicality and the new Discovery Sport has been designed and engineered to be even easier and more family-friendly.
Based on Land Rover’s new mixed-metal Premium Transverse Architecture, a 2,741mm wheelbase and compact suspension design combine to offer an enhanced 5+2 seat layout, greater ride comfort and increased stowage to create the ultimate compact SUV for modern families.
Discovery Sport’s three-row layout delivers a more flexible seat design with four core options across all trim levels, while the new architecture delivers a 40:20:40 second row split for greater flexibility on any journey. Offering greater comfort and versatility than before, row two slide, fold and recline is now standard across the model range, and for the first time on this model, there is the option of front row massage functionality.
With the ability to slide the second row forwards and back, legroom can be as much as 968mm for second row and 655mm for third row passengers. The stepped roof – a hallmark of Discovery family design – and flat floor also ensure headroom of 984mm for second row and 875mm for third row passengers.
Overall small item storage has been increased by 25 per cent (48-litres), thanks in part to a larger central cubby box and re-designed door bins. The new central storage bin offers a generous 7.3-litre capacity and features a removable tray with two cup holders and a small net for items such as headphones or chargers. The tray includes a smartphone holder that, alongside a similar space in the base of the storage area, allows devices to be charged by one of the two USB charging sockets inside. New cup holders and re-positioned storage spaces for third-row passengers mean there is now a place for everything, while USB and 12-volt charge points (in total, six and three, respectively) are located conveniently throughout the cabin.
Optional Click & Go tablet holders, which hold and charge smart devices for passengers travelling in the second row, are now available and perfect for keeping children entertained on long journeys.
At the rear, boot space is 897-litres, increasing to 1,794-litres when the second row seats are folded flat, while the inclusion of a cargo net as standard stops loose items from sliding around on the move.
Design is about more than how something looks. Good design is intuitive and user-friendly and makes your life better. That is exactly what sets the Discovery Sport apart. Not only have we optimised the interior space, but by making it smarter with new technologies, we have made Discovery Sport the perfect family SUV.

Helping to make everyday life a bit easier, the new Discovery Sport has a 20 per cent larger fuel tank, now 65-litres, in addition to a 40 per cent increase in the UREA (AdBlue / Diesel Exhaust Fluid) tank’s capacity. The maximum towing weight of 2,500kg and the availability of optional Advanced Tow Assist – the company’s pioneering technology for more intuitive and safe reversing – makes life even easier once you have reached your destination.
The enhanced versatility of the vehicle’s interior extends to the addition of two-zone climate control as standard, allowing the driver and front passenger to individually find a suitable temperature. This extends to second and third row occupants, who can now set the temperature using their own controls, while optional cabin air ionisation helps purify the air with electrically charged particles and marks out a greater focus on occupant wellness.
Alongside a new key fob design, owners can add a powered tailgate and Jaguar Land Rover’s Activity Key – all intended to streamline the customer experience. These are available with a series of accessory packs that offer additional functionality across vehicle practicality, connectivity, driver assistance and parking. There is also Land Rover’s all new Pet Pack accessories, designed to improve the Discovery Sport experience for customer and dog, alike.
