Land Rover has launched the MY2019 version of the Discovery Sport SUV. The major change on the vehicle is the inclusion of new features and a powerful iteration of the diesel engine. The vehicle is priced at Rs 44.68 lakh onwards, ex-showroom.
The Discovery Sport Diesel continues to be offered with a 2-litre Ingenium diesel engine that makes 148 bhp in the Pure trim but the power output of the diesel engine has been bumped to 177 bhp on the SE and HSE models. The 2-litre Ingenium Petrol is available only in the SE and HSE trims, and makes 237 bhp.
The top-spec HSE Luxury trim now gets a Design Dynamic Pack, which includes Body Styling Kit, Chrome Tailpipe Finisher, Black Pack (black grille and licence plate plinth; and a red-coloured ‘Sport’ badge). The new Touch Pro infotainment system, with features similar to that of the Touch Pro Duo (found in the Range Rovers), has been added as well.
JLR India’s President and MD, Rohit Suri said, “With the Model Year 2019 Discovery Sport, we now offer our customers an extensive range of derivatives and enhanced powertrain options that provide efficiency and an improved driving experience. It adds on the unique combination of versatility and distinctive design that has made the Discovery Sport one of the leading models in the Land Rover portfolio.”
