Safety technologies feature in Discovery Sport


The Discovery Sport, the newest member of the Land Rover Discovery family, offers drivers more than just versatile seating configurations, a refined ride, and a range of economical engines mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.


With a host of safety features, an all-new infotainment system, and Terrain Response®, the Discovery Sport showcases some of Land Rover’s best technologies.


“We believe that Discovery Sport is the most versatile and capable vehicle in its class,” said Lisa Mallett, Marketing and Communications Director, Jaguar Land Rover South Africa and sub-Sahara Africa. “And to help it live up to drivers’ expectations we also wanted it to offer some of the best technologies in its segment.”


Set inside the dashboard is an 8-inch, high resolution touchscreen display that gives drivers complete control over their entertainment and mobile phones, as well as the use of  Bluetooth. Drivers are able to pair their mobile phones to the system, which allows phone calls to be placed as well as music to be streamed wirelessly. To ensure drivers’ phones remain powered, Discovery Sport is also equipped with up to two USB ports as standard, while additional ports are available as options for second and third row seats.


Rear-seat passengers can indulge in a comfortable movie-viewing experience thanks to optional eight-inch displays mounted in the headrests, which form part of the optional rear seat entertainment system. While Whitefire® digital headphones complement this system, the optional Meridian audio package offers full surround sound using 17 speakers, including a subwoofer.


The centre display also provides drivers with real-time feedback about their driving style, scoring them in acceleration, braking, and speed. A summary score show drivers how economically they are driving, allowing them to minimise their carbon footprint.


Terrain Response® is also fitted as standard, allowing drivers to configure the Discovery Sport for a variety of driving conditions, ranging from tar roads to rock crawling. It is supplemented by Hill Descent Control (HDC) and Electronic Traction Control (ETC) to ensure drivers remain confident when headed off the beaten track.


A number of safety technologies are also fitted as standard to keep families safe. These include Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Roll Stability Control (RSC), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), for keeping the vehicle on the straight and narrow in emergencies and on slippery surfaces. Drivers choosing to tow can also rely on the Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) system for keeping both vehicle and trailer stable in emergency situations.


Discovery Sport is equipped with seven airbags (front and side airbags for driver and passenger; side curtain airbags for front and rear passengers; and a driver’s side knee airbag) ensuring maximum safety in the case of an accident. ISOFIX anchor points are also fitted in the rear, for child seats.


“The base model is generously equipped, and drivers can specify additional items as they see fit,” said Mallett. “We have not compromised on capabilities and safety – so all Discovery Sport drivers can enjoy a true Land Rover drive, both on and off road.”
