New Discovery Sport Plug-in Hybrid

Featuring all-wheel drive and up to 38 miles* of emission free-driving

The Discovery Sport has been somewhat of a hit for Land Rover. Offering buyers a slice of the premium action at a more affordable price, the Disco Sport has long been a great option for families or those who need a bit more space.

Now, the Discovery Sport is moving into the electrified age with a new PHEV version. For those after lower running costs and electric travel, it could be the car that ticks all of the boxes - let’s take a look at it in a bit more detail.

Interior

The cabin of the Discovery Sport PHEV has been designed with practicality at its forefront. It’s why you’ll find a seven-seat configuration inside, which opens up the Disco to carrying far more people than you’d expect from a car of this type - though entry-level models do just come with five seats instead.

However, in all cars each row gets USB plugs and 12-volt charge points, giving passengers plenty of device charging options. When you’ve got the third row folded flat there’s a reasonable 754 litres to play with, though this does drop to 157 litres with all seven seats in place. However, fold both second and third rows flat and there’s a cavernous 1,794 litres to utilise. 

Exterior

The exterior of the new Discovery Sport has been carefully enhanced compared with the previous version, giving it enough new life without making it appear too different to its much-loved predecessor. As such the lights have been given a bit of nip and tuck, and there are larger air inlets further down the grille that mirror those fitted to the full-size Discovery.

Around the back, the Discovery badge sits more prominently while the rear lights have been given a smoked-out, subdued appearance.

Technology

Much like other cars in its range, JLR has thrown a whole host of technological features at the latest Discovery Sport. There’s a new 10-inch infotainment system, which features pinch-to-zoom controls just like you’d find on a smartphone. In addition, this system houses features such as satellite navigation and media functions, too. A Remote Access function allows you to connect your phone to your car, allowing you to check fuel levels, find your vehicle in a busy car park and even check that the windows haven’t been left open - all from your phone.

Performance

The plug-in hybrid powertrain is one of the latest setups to be fitted to the new Discovery Sport. It’s a clever system, too, coupling a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor and batteries. The engine drives the front wheels, while the electric motor powers the rears. In total, the system pushes out a healthy 304bhp and 540Nm of torque, while drive is sent through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. 

Thanks to that electrical assistance, Land Rover claims up to 175.5mpg and emissions of just 36g/km. In total, there’s an electric range of up to 38 miles available at speeds of up to 84mph. Using a standard three-pin socket, it’ll take around seven hours to charge that battery from empty to full, while a domestic wallbox will achieve the same level of charge in just 90 minutes. Use a DC fast charger, and you’ll be able to go from 0-80 per cent charge in 30 minutes.

The Discovery Sport is versitible and a compact SUV​:

  • Capability with composure
  • Clever storage solutions
  • CO2 from 38 g/km*
  • BIK Tax Rate from 10%**
  • EV only range up to 37 miles***

What are the benefits of PHEV?

  • Ultra low emissions - They are not only more economical to run, they are more eco-friendly than fuel-burning equivalents which massively reduces your environmental footprint.
  • No compromise in capabilities - Just because you choose PHEV doesn't mean you have to comprimise of the capabilities, You can still off-road in you beloved Range Rover!
  • A more refined drive - PHEV offers a quiet drive and with seamless transition between the petrol engine and electric motor.
  • Economical running costs - The relative low cost of electricity versus petrol and diesel means PHEVs are much cheaper to refuel as well as cheaper to maintain

    The entry point to the specifications list on the Discovery Sport PHEV, R-Dynamic adds a sporty exterior look which comes with all R-Dynamic cars, but builds with plenty of other features. There are 18-inch alloy wheels, for instance, as well as LED headlights, 12-way adjustable and heated front seats and the previously mentioned 10-inch Touch Pro infotainment system. A variety of driver assistance systems are fitted too, including emergency braking and traffic sign recognition.

    Discovery Sport R-Dynamic SE

    Upgrade to SE and one of the most notable additions is larger, more intricately styled 20-inch alloy wheels. The car’s design is bolstered thanks to the premium LED headlights with a prominent daytime running light feature, while auto high beam assist and automatic headlight levelling help with vision on dark winter nights. In addition, the standard analogue dials ahead of the driver are replaced with a customisable interactive driver display.

    Discovery Sport R-Dynamic HSE

    Top of the list sits HSE, and this gets the most comprehensive list of equipment available on the Discovery Sport. A full premium Meridian Sound System is a high-end addition to the entertainment offering on the car, while JLR’s ClearSight tech - which replaces the conventional rear view mirror with a screen displaying an image transferred from a camera on the boot - is fitted as standard too. And, though the 20-inch wheels are the same size as those found on SE cars, they feature a more intricate design and are finished in gloss silver.
