Land Rover has announced a new trim will be added to the Discovery Sport range – the HSE Dynamic Lux. Costing from £46,000, it gets more gloss black trim and a range of improvements under the bonnet for even greater off-, and on-road performance.
If you’re sold on its handsome British design, put the Land Rover Discovery Sport in our car configurator to see how much carwow could help you save.
The new trim adds striking exterior and interior details that give the already imposing Discovery Sport a further styling boost. Large 20-inch black alloy wheels and further gloss black styling details add an air of menace.
It also gets re-styled front and rear bumpers that add to the car’s rugged and solid appearance. To mark it out as the most expensive Discovery Sport available, there are special red ‘Sport’ badges to differentiate it from cars lower down in the range.
The theme continues inside. Special body-coloured trim adds a dash of colours while the dials and shift-paddles get a brushed aluminium look along with new sports pedals. Partial leather upholstery comes as standard with extra pieces as an optional extra.
It gets Land Rover’s new All Terrain Progress Control system. An advanced form of traction control – this helps the driver maintain a steady speed even in the worst off-road conditions and adapts the car’s assistance systems depending on the terrain you’re driving on.
Also included is an Active Driveline system that switches the car between two- and four-wheel-drive effortlessly. This increases fuel economy around town, and an increases grip when off-road. If the driver wishes, they can choose between either drive-system via the car’s eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
Improved comfort and driving
The HSE Dynamic Lux also gets an adaptive suspension system. This means in comfort mode, high levels of compliance will be maintained and, in sport mode, the car will resist body roll more.
The driver will also be able to choose a special Dynamic mode – this’ll improve acceleration and the responses from the gearbox. The car gets the current 2.0-litre 180hp diesel engine that achieves 0-60mph in 8.4 seconds.
