Land Rover updates Discovery Sport

Date: 27 April 2016   |   Author: Daniel Puddicombe

Land Rover has updated its Discovery Sport off-roader, with it going on sale now, priced from £31,095.

Changes include an updated InControl Touch Pro media system, with a larger 10.2-inch touchscreen, mimicking the look and feel of smartphone and tablet interfaces.

The 2017 model year Discovery Sport also introduces three new advanced safety systems - Driver Condition Monitor, Intelligent Speed Limiter and Lane Keep Assist. These monitor driver alertness, prevent the car from exceeding set limits and keep within its lane.

Land Rover has also vehicle integrated the Tile's tracking app, which uses Bluetooth tags to monitor the location of items, such as valuables.

Once the app has been opened using the car's touchscreen, drivers are alerted if items are not inside the vehicle, with on-screen directions to their last known location also available.

The Tile smartphone app is compatible with both Android and Apple platforms, and can track an infinite number of items.

"Losing your wallet or leaving your child's sports kit behind isn't just an inconvenience. The realisation you've mislaid something important can be a cause of distraction," said Peter Virk, Jaguar Land Rover's director of connected technologies and apps.

"Our unique partnership with Tile means customers can check the status of tagged items using Discovery Sport's touchscreen, so forgotten items will be a thing of the past," he added.
