2023 Land Rover Discovery Sport's deliveries underway in India
Land Rover has begun delivering the 2023 version of Discovery Sport in India. The model carries a price tag of Rs. 71.39 lakh for both the petrol and diesel guise. The updated four-wheeler gets connected technology through the "InControl" app integration, which allows you to use your smartphone as a remote control to access the SUV's features. It sports a dual-tone paint scheme.
Why does this story matter?
Land Rover is owned by Tata Motors and has a wide variety of petrol, diesel, and strong-hybrid SUVs in its portfolio. The Discovery Sport model was conceptualized as a replacement for the Freelander by the British marque and has been popular in India ever since its debut in 2014. The 2023 iteration is based on an all-new Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA).
The SUV flaunts a sleek grille design and all-LED lighting
The 2023 Land Rover Discovery Sport has a typical SUV silhouette and sports a long and muscular clamshell bonnet, projector LED headlights with DRLs, a sleek black grille, a wide air dam, and a raked windscreen. On the sides, it is flanked by ORVMs, black B-pillars, flared wheel arches, and 19-inch designer wheels. Wrap-around LED taillights and a shark-fin antenna grace the rear end.
It is offered with two powertrain options
The 2023 Discovery Sport draws power from a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine that produces 247hp/365Nm and a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel mill that churns out 296hp/430Nm. The mills are mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox along with a "Terrain Response 2" all-wheel-drive system.
The car features a dual-tone dashboard and premium leather upholstery
Inside, the Land Rover has a luxurious seven-seater cabin and features a dual-tone dashboard, multi-zone climate control, ventilated front seats, wireless charger, premium leather upholstery, ambient lighting, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The SUV packs a digital instrument cluster and a 10-inch Pivi Pro infotainment system with the latest connectivity options. Passengers' safety is ensured by multiple airbags and a host of ADAS functions.
