|Land Rover has announced a number of design additions to the 2017 Discovery Sport including a new Dynamic Design Pack and the availability of the advanced Land Rover InControl Touch Pro infotainment system with 10.2-inch touch-screen.|
To appease technology-savvy enthusiasts and individuals, the Land Rover Discovery Sport now in Dynamic design Pack for HSE and HSE LUX trim levels takes up unique front and rear bumpers with integrated rear tailpipes, black accented exterior detailing and gloss black 20-inch wheels.
Inside. the Discovery Sport with design pack comes with contrast stitched leather seats and gearshift knob, unique carpet mats, metal finish pedals and center dash side panel finishers. The primary interior addition to this Discovery Sport is none other than the advanced Land Rover InControl Touch Pro infotainment system. The system provides a larger 10.2-inch touchscreen and intuitive menus, replicating the look and feel of smartphone apps and allowing users to swipe and pinch, just as they would on a tablet. The screen does not require any ‘hard’ buttons and provides a super-wide 21:9 high resolution screen format. The added capability of the InControl Touch Pro system is supported through the use of a high-performance Intel Quad-Core computing and graphics processor paired with a fast Solid State Drive (SSD).
Complementing the enhanced design and technology features fitted to the 2017 Discovery Sport are a trio of new driver assistance systems. Using an algorithm which continuously monitors driver inputs looking for signs of fatigue, Driver Condition Monitor is designed to alert the driver via visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of driver drowsiness3.
Intelligent Speed Limiter has also been added and is designed to help drivers to keep to the speed limit. The system takes advantage of the Traffic Sign Recognition feature to detect changes to the prevailing speed limit.
Another new feature, Lane Keep Assist, uses the forward-facing camera on the vehicle to detect lane markings. If the driver begins to veer out of their lane without indicating, the vehicle is designed to gently counter-steer to ensure it does not leave its lane unintentionally.
The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport, built at the Jaguar Land Rover plant in Halewood, UK, will be available in four new exterior body colors: Silicon Silver, Farallon Black, Carpathian Grey and Aruba metallic. The roll-out for the Discovery Sport design pack is expected to begin in August.
