2016 Land Rover Discovery Exterior and Interior
2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport will take the place of the outdated LR2 here in the U.S., and it will arrive with a body style that takes a little from the Range Rover line and a bit from the Evoque. Land Rover boasts that 90 percent of LR-MS components are new. Most of it is steel though aluminum is used in some areas to help shed weight. The Discovery Sport is expected to be bigger than the Evoque but its proportions and styling appear similar. From the front and rear, it is easy to tell that this is an all-new model, making this models great for new buyers. Inside the cabin, the new 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport pulls off some incredible magic tricks, as it manages to cram enough seats into this 180.7-inch-long SUV to fit seven people. Land Rover’s strategists have decided to bring the interior dramatically into the future, using a much larger central touchscreen than previously and a laser head-up display (HUD)that projects information in a much crisper and clearer manner than conventional HUDs.
2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport will be the same turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that is under the hood of the Evoque. That means there will be 240 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of twist on tap. This engine will be bolted to the ZF nine-speed automatic transmission, complete with that trick rotating shift knob that rises from the dash. A standard Haldex All-Wheel-Drive system helps to keep the new Discovery Sport moving and pointing the right direction even when traction and terrain are less than ideal.
