Here’s the new 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport

The new 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport was announced today by the British manufacturer and will feature an all-new mild-hybrid powertrain.

Launched 5 years ago, the Discovery Sport is getting updated for 2020. Land Rover announced today a refreshed version of the SUV.

The new compact premium SUV gets its fair share of new technology, more efficient powertrains and an enhanced interior.

Built on a new platform, the Land Rover Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA), the 2020 Discovery Sport also introduces a new 48-volt mild-hybrid electric (MHEV) powertrain. The engine, also found in the new Range Rover Evoque, pushes 296hp and will be available along with a 246hp Ingenium four-cylinder gasoline engine.

“Building on the success of the original Discovery Sport, this beautifully proportioned vehicle has been refined, enhancing its characterful exterior which compliments the engaging nature of the interior space,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer.

Speaking of the interior, the 5+2 optional configuration can be arranged in 24 different combinations. The cabin also features a new smart rear view mirror that was first unveiled in the 2020 Range Rover Evoque, the ClearSight Rear View. This rear-view mirror gives a rear-facing camera feed to the driver at the touch of a button.

“Discovery Sport has been a real sales success for Land Rover, leading the way for the past three years and selling almost half a million vehicles to date. During that time, it has won a number of awards and introduced a large number of new, younger families into the brand who are looking for something different,” said Felix Brautigam, Chief Commercial Officer at Jaguar Land Rover.

No pricing has been announced yet, but the new 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport should be in a showroom near you this summer.
