Since its official debut in 2015, Land Rover Discovery Freelander has successfully replaced the Freelander as the entry-level model of Land Rover. Over the past four years, with this entry-level positioning, Land Rover Discovery has also brought considerable sales to Land Rover.
From the second half of last year, the road test spy photos of the new Land Rover Discovery Sport began to be exposed. At that time, we thought it would be a small facelift model, and when Land Rover officially released the official pictures and related information of the new car a few days ago , We just discovered that Land Rover Discovery Sport has ushered in a new generation this time.
From the appearance point of view, the new generation of Land Rover Discovery Sport has not changed much compared with the old model, and the upper profile of the whole vehicle is almost the same as that of the previous generation model. Under the framework of the Land Rover Discovery family, the new generation of Land Rover Discovery Sport also further emphasizes the tall vehicle front projection. In terms of details such as the front face, the new generation of Land Rover Discovery Sport has readjusted the styling language of the vehicle, forming a new generation of family image with slender headlights.
At the rear of the vehicle, the contrasting design of the circular taillights on the old model has been replaced by LED taillights composed of horizontal lines. The corresponding rear license plate light decorative panel also adopts a style similar to Discovery 5. Inside the vehicle, the interior design of the new car has been re-adjusted, and the image of the interior is fully close to the Land Rover Discovery 5. The large-size LCD screen constitutes the main component of the console.
In general, the new generation of Land Rover Discovery Sport is closer to a minor facelift from the appearance point of view.
An important basis for defining it as a new-generation model is that the new car is equipped with the same PTA platform architecture as the new-generation Range Rover Evoque. The new platform architecture increases the body stiffness of the new-generation Land Rover Discovery Sport by 13%. At the same time, in terms of power, a 48V light hybrid model has also been added, while the normal power model is still equipped with a 2.0L inline four-cylinder turbocharged engine.
In terms of performance, thanks to the use of Land Rover’s all-terrain adaptive system, the new generation of Land Rover Discovery Sport has a wading depth of 60 cm. The maximum towing capacity is 4000 kg. At the same time, the new car also provides an advanced trailer assist system. In terms of configuration, the active safety configuration is listed as optional.
Write on the back:
It is not uncommon for the replacement model to keep the platform and the inner side panel unchanged, and it is not uncommon to slightly change the outer panel, but it is really rare for the Land Rover Discovery Sport to change the platform without changing the side panel.
