From overland expeditions to family adventures, Land Rover has been designing vehicles with composure and capability at their heart for more than 71 years. For the last three decades, the Discovery family has combined contemporary SUV design, unrivalled versatility and advanced technology for families with a spirit of adventure. The new Land Rover Discovery Sport is the latest addition to the bloodline and pushes the boundaries of the premium compact SUV sector with an enhanced exterior design and transformed interior. New vehicle architecture ensures the fastest-selling Land Rover ever produced is now more efficient, technologically-advanced and versatile than ever, keeping its occupants safe and comfortable in all conditions. With new features and the very latest technology, the new Discovery Sport delivers superior interior space and refinement, while its 5+2 interior features a new infotainment interface with the latest connectivity, plus a more flexible seating arrangement with up to 24 combinations for enhanced versatility. Under the skin, Land Rover's new Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA) accommodates efficient new electrified engines, including a 48-volt mild hybrid from launch, to help reduce emissions and fuel consumption. The new body is stiffer than its predecessor, with rigidlymounted subframes that reduce noise and vibration intrusion into the cabin, improving comfort and providing maximum safety in the event of a collision.
The passenger compartment of the Captur remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of theknees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Renault showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants ofdifferent sizes and to those sitting in different positions. Protection was rated as good for all critical body areas for the passenger. In thefull-width rigid barrier test, protection was good or adequate for all critical body areas, both for the driver and the rear passenger. In theside barrier impact, protection of all critical body areas was good and the car scored full points in this test. Even in the more severe sidepole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body regions was good. Tests on the front seats and head restraintsdemonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats alsoindicated good whiplash protection. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system performed well in tests of itsfunctionality at the low speeds at which many whiplash injuries occur, with collisions avoided in most test scenarios
