March 13, 2020, Petaling Jaya – Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia, the official distributor for Land Rover and Jaguar vehicles in Malaysia, has launched the new Land Rover Discovery Sport with a starting price at RM 379,800.
The compact premium SUV is available in two variants – the 5-seater and the 5+2 seater high spec Discovery Sport R-Dynamic.
Some of the new updates include the new signature LED headlamps and taillights, new front grille and bumpers while maintaining the Land Rover’s trademark design.
Both variants are powered by the powerful and fuel efficient 2.0-litre turbocharged ingenium petrol engine paired with the ZF nine-speed automatic transmission.
Power is transferred to all wheels and now the drivetrain comes with driveline disconnect. This feature works by disconnecting the drive of the front axle to the rear wheels under steady state cruising, thereby reducing frictional losses and re-engaging AWD in less than 500 milliseconds.
Apart from that, there is also the Terrain Response 2 on board. The system optimises performance on a variety of different surfaces for better traction and control. Each driving mode tunes the response of the throttle, brakes, differentials, and transmission to deliver optimum handling.
There is also the ClearSight ground view – Land Rover’s world-first technology for the Discovery Sport. It provides driver with a clear virtual view of the ground assisting them to navigate through rough terrains, park in tight spaces and to avoid side kerbs on the road.
The list of updates doesn’t just stop there. The engineers also added the 10-inch high definition touch pro infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto ready.
Some of the equipment list includes a 12-inch high-definition screen, generation 2 head-up display, wireless charging, amongst others.
