A few months ago, we saw Coventry Motors, the official distributor of Jaguar Land Rover in the country, reveal the all-new Evoque. Sleeker and equipped with more high-tech features, the baby Range Rover is stunning as it's cutting edge.
Now, the Discovery Sport gets a new look inside and out, and it is now in the country as well. Say hello to the 2020 Discovery Sport. They're even offering two variants for it now, giving you the freedom of choice.
In case you haven't noticed it yet, the refreshed Discovery Sport now slightly resembles one of its siblings, the Evoque. The headlights and the front grill have been redesigned to give a bolder and more prominent look. Even the front grill was given a once over to give the Discovery Sport a sleeker appearance. But perhaps receiving the most drastic of changes are the taillights which now have a unique look as they no longer resemble the clusters used on the Evoque.
Pop the doors and the Discovery Sport greets its occupants with a full leather interior, along with a new TouchPro infotainment system. It now comes with a bigger touchscreen display, along with improved media functions and better-looking graphics. Also receiving a makeover is the automatic climate control panel which looks classier than before. Another thing worth mentioning is the new automatic gear selector which replaces the old rotary-style knob. All in all, the new look puts it in line with the rest of the Land Rover range.
Only the 2.0-liter diesel mill is offered locally. Dubbed the D150 engine, it's good for, you guessed it, 150 PS and 380 Nm of torque. It shifts via a nine-speed automatic transmission and, of course, four-wheel drive is standard. Land Rover says it has the capability you can expect from the esteemed automaker.
The two variants offered in the Philippine market are the S (Standard) and the R-Dynamic. The S rides on 20-inch alloys with higher clearances for tackling the trail, along with a tan interior theme. As for the R-Dynamic, it sports a kit that makes it sit lower to the ground, along with 20-inch alloy wheels and a black interior.
Prices for the 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport are as follows:
Discovery Sport S: Php 4,490,000
Discovery Sport R-Dynamic: Php 4,790,000
