2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport: Convenience Inside the Cabin
When you first set foot inside this Land Rover model, you’re sure to notice its convenient spaciousness. This is reflected in the fact that you and everyone on board have plenty of opportunity for stowing. For instance, with the rear seatbacks upright, the maximum cargo space volume comes to 34.6 cubic feet. When these seatbacks are folded down, this capacity expands to an even more accommodating 62.8 cubic feet.
With all this cargo capacity, the Land Rover Discovery Sport still provides ample potential for comfort. An example of this is found in the fact that the maximum front headroom is a spacious 40.2 inches, while the headroom in the back measures at 38.7 inches.
A Look at Performance
To begin our discussion about the performance capabilities you’ll get with the Discovery Sport, we’ll examine what you get under its hood. The standard engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder motor that delivers an unmistakable 237 horsepower along with 251 lb-ft of torque. The available engine is also a 2.0-liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. With this one, you get even more of a high-powered performance as it gives you a full-bodied 286 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.
Aside from engine specs, other 2019 Discovery Sport performance features that set it apart include the Terrain Response®. This standard feature provides you with a highly responsive performance that is able to adapt to changes in both terrain and weather conditions. This is accomplished through the four distinct settings of General Driving, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud & Ruts, and Sand.
The new Land Rover model does a lot to enhance your overall awareness. One way it does this is with the Blind Spot Monitor and Reverse Traffic Detection. This standard feature helps you change lanes with increased confidence by making you aware of vehicles when they’re in your blind spots. The Reverse Traffic Detection part of this feature boosts your ability to back up with ease as it warns you with visual and audible alerts if objects are approaching from either side.
This 2019 Land Rover SUV also comes standard with the Lane Keep Assist and Driver Condition Monitor. This useful safety aid helps you out when you find yourself driving long hours. It steers you back into your lane when it senses the vehicle begin to drift unintentionally. With the Driver Condition Monitor, it warns you that it’s time to pull over for a break when it detects that you’re too tired to continue.
