2022 Land Rover Discovery Sport| Complete Review!
2022 Land Rover Discovery Sport – Overview
Starting at $44,250
Few rivals can match the 2022 Discovery Sport’s all-terrain capabilities, including primary all-wheel drive, water-towing ability, and a slew of off-road tech options.
But, on the other hand, those road-oriented crossovers provide more exciting handling and more sumptuous cabins than the Discovery Sport.
The Land Rover’s ruggedness and a large cabin with an available third row of seats have a particular attraction, even if the overall package doesn’t exceptionally exceed segment standards.
Exterior Design & Aesthetic
In 2022, the Discovery Sport will come standard with heated front seats, a power-operated rear liftgate, and a wireless smartphone charging station.
Cooling vents and USB connections are now included in the optional Third Row pack, adding the Disco Sport’s optional third row of seats.
In addition, the options sheet contains two new colors: Ostuni Pearl White and Lantau Bronze.
Premium LED headlights, a digital gauge display, daytime running lights, and blind-spot monitoring are all available on the SE model, which is a great place to start.
We’d opt for the optional Meridian Surround Sound system with 14 speakers and 14-way power-adjustable front seats. For those who require it, a pop-up third row is available.
In addition, land Rover offers a black roof, a variety of wheel shapes, and premium metallic paint treatments to customize the Discovery Sport’s appearance.
The Discovery Sport retains the brand’s premium image with a dashboard appearance that mirrors flashier and more expensive Land Rovers.
The interior now has more sustainable materials and seat options for greater versatility. The seats in our test vehicle were comfy enough for multiple four-hour long-haul trips.
The base versions are all standard versions of the ambient interior lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, and push-button start.
Optional features include leather upholstery, 12-way power-adjustable front seats, and a pair of third-row jump seats.
The Discovery Sport has a cargo capacity of 28 cubic feet behind the second row.
A 10.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with Land Rover’s latest Pivi Pro interface is standard on all Discovery Sport versions.
Other infotainment technologies are optional, including a 4G LTE mobile hotspot, a head-up display, and in-dash navigation.
Apple CarPlay & Android Auto are available. A 180-watt six-speaker sound system is standard.
However, Land Rover provides two Meridian stereos options: The first is a 10-speaker system with 380 watts of power, while the second features 14 speakers and 825 watts of power.
Land Rover offers a wide range of safety features, including innovative video systems and the standard variety of everyday driving and safety aids.
Adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking with forward-collision detection, lane-keeping assist, and other features are included in the latter.
The following are important safety features:
- Pedestrian recognition and standard autonomous emergency braking.
- Lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist is standard.
- Adaptive cruise control is an available feature.
Engine Specs & Performance
Every Discovery Sport comes with a 246-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
In addition, of course, the Sport’s standard all-wheel drive, as well as a slew of optional trail-rated equipment, aids in gliding over rough terrain and weather any storm.
The Disco Sport can even go into 23.6 inches of water and tow up to 4409 pounds for those who dare.
On the plus side, the Discovery Sport provides a relaxing cruising experience.
The EPA predicts 19 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined for the Discovery Sport. Unfortunately, the Land Rover is thirsty compared to other luxury compact SUVs.
