Land Rover has introduced the Model Year 2018 Discovery Sport in India. The latest Discovery Sport comes with a suite of advanced features which include Wi-Fi Hotspot and Pro Services in addition to the existing InControl Apps feature. The Wi-Fi Hotspot uses a customer sourced SIM to provide in-car access to a 4G hotspot for up to eight devices. This allows passengers to simultaneously stay connected, work or be entertained throughout the journey.
Prices for the 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport begin at INR 42.48 lakh, going up to INR 57.46 lakh (ex-showroom) depending on trim level and options. All variants are powered by a 2.0-litre TD4 diesel engine which cranks out 147 bhp and 382 Nm of torque. Paired with a 9-speed automatic gearbox, it can help the SUV go from 0 – 100 in 10.3 seconds and hit a top speed of 180 kph. The Discover Sport comes with Land Rover’s brilliant Terrain Respons system which ensures the vehicle remains sure-footed, no matter what the terrain or weather conditions.
A range of additional services which enhance the vehicle’s infotainment capabilities have been included under ‘InControl – Pro Services’ on the 2018 car to deliver an even richer and more connected experience. Key features of these services include the following:
The Route Planner App – Available from Apple Store or Google Play Store, the App allows one to navigate to the end destination and sync routes with the vehicle’s navigation system.
Commute Mode – This feature learns a regular route and displays diversions if there are delays on the existing regular route.
Sharing ETA – This feature allows sharing of updates with certain contacts on the expected time of arrival (ETA) via SMS.
Talking about the enhancements, Mr Rohit Suri, President & Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd. (JLRIL), said: “The Discovery Sport has been enriched for Model Year 2018 to provide a more connected experience to our tech-savvy customers in India. This emphasises our commitment to offer the very latest in in-car infotainment and connected technologies.”
