LAND ROVER IS ALREADY WORKING ON A NEXT-GENERATION DISCOVERY SPORT 2020

Land Rover Discovery Sport is a Sports SUV that every man with adventure soul want to get one, The Land Rover Discovery Sport already powerful and well luxury too, but the company want to bring this Sports SUV to the next level with a few modifications, and the next edition of this SUV will come out as The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport. So let’s take a look deeper to the next 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Because the 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport still in prototype, It’s hard to tell exactly how those elements will end up looking when the wraps are taken out, but the lighting fixture, in particular, has two horizontal LEDs sitting at the bottom. The current Discovery Sport doesn’t have those.

The SUV’s profile looks similar to the current model. That’s expected considering that we’re only dealing with an updated look here. The rear section is interesting, though, because there are no cutouts. We do see what looks to be a pair of exhaust outlets on one side, but it’s really hard to tell given the angles from which some of the photos were taken.

As it stands, the current Discovery Sport has one of the cleanest-looking cabins in its segment. It’s defined by its luxury touches, a lot of which can be had as optional add-ons like the twin-needle-stitched leather, genuine metal interior trim, configurable mood lighting, and multi-zone climate control, among others.

The dashboard layout offers a nice blend of refinement and functionality, but I wouldn’t be opposed to Land Rover getting rid of the some of the knobs, buttons, and switches in favor of a more streamlined unit.

Space shouldn’t be an issue on the facelifted Discovery Sport. As it stands, the facelifted model will sit on a heavily updated version of Land Rover’s D8 platform. Not only does this platform provide better ride comfort, but it also creates more space in the back, more cargo room, and enough room underneath for those lithium-ion batteries that the hybrid version will at its disposal.

The most important update in the facelifted Discovery Sport is the availability of a plug-in hybrid version. Details are still unclear on how much power the hybrid version of the Discovery Sport will carry, but it will be using the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder Ingenium engine that Land Rover began using on the model in 2015.

The Ingenium engine is a range of modular four-cylinder turbocharged engines with the same 2.0-liter capacity. The engine comes in gas and diesel variants and can be reconfigured to accommodate three-, five, and six-cylinder options. Given its versatility, it’s not a surprise that the Ingenium engine is used across the Discovery Sport’s model lineup. It can produce as little as 150 horsepower and as much as 240 horsepower.

The updated figures won’t be released until the facelifted SUV makes its debut. That said, expect minimal bumps in power across the range. The Discovery Sport Hybrid should also ascend to the top of the entire lineup where it will serve as the range-topping version of the Discovery Sport.

The current Land Rover Discovery Sport has a starting price of $37,795, putting it in the middle of the pack as far as how luxury compact SUV prices go. That amount goes up, too, depending on the trim. There are two higher trims available: the Discovery Sport HSE that’s priced a little over $40,000 and the top-of-the-line Discovery Sport HSE Luxury that has its own base price of more than $40,000.
