In Britain, Discovery Sport is considered the popular model of Land Rover but for us, in a price range of between NIS 389 and NIS 484,000, it will not exceed its modest distribution limits. We took the fancy S-Plus version to the test

You need a designer's eye to notice the minimal changes in the design of the new Sport. Although built on the Hawk's PTA platform, the British maintained its external dimensions, including the wheelbase. The changes are mainly reflected in fenders and spoilers, LED units and grills in new design, rims. The changes are minimal, but they allow Sport to stay up-to-date and competitive, in a constantly changing world.

House of Lords

More serious work was invested in the passenger compartment, which became much richer and more luxurious than the previous one, which was almost simply confined. The new model is padded with light skin, pleasing to the touch and appearance. It has a 10.25-inch multimedia screen and a 12.3-inch digital dashboard, a wireless charging surface, and a roof camera that can replace the optical mirror. The center console is made of glossy black material, which connects with the black roof and other aluminum cabinets and leather cabinets.

The small switch with the fan illustration does not control the fan, it only switches the fan control to the large dial

Underneath the multimedia screen, physical switches were installed to control different systems in the car, but look at it - the switch that turns on the air conditioner fan, doesn't really turn on the fan ... Actions to reduce or increase the volume of the air conditioner. Reback, gentlemen, if you already have a fan switch installed, why not turn it on?

Both rear seats are designed for children, with control over the rear air conditioner. When folded, a huge trunk is obtained

But don't let me be petty - the new sports passenger compartment is an excellent and ergonomic comfort zone. The front seats are excellent and supportive, the rear has plenty of space for three compact or two size XXXL, and in the third row two fairly small and crowded seats; In the end, Discovery Sports is about 10 inches short of the Outlander, for example. The volume of the trunk varies from 157 liters in 7-seater configuration, through 1,036 liters in very spacious -5, with two passengers able to push behind 1,651 liters of camping, surfing, or golf gear. The sport is an excellent hobby vehicle, no doubt.

The demo vehicle was a fancy S-Plus diesel, which includes electric trunk opening, smart key, enhanced 'Meridian' sound system with 11 speakers, adaptive cruise control, high-speed emergency braking and dead vehicle entry. All this good will cost NIS 428,000 in the diesel version we tested, NIS 448,000 in the gasoline 250 kW. Customers of budget-savvy customers can purchase the standard S version with a 200 kW gasoline engine for NIS 389,000. In this price range, Discovery Sports will have to deal with impressive competitors such as Cadillac 5XT, Lexus RX, and other high-powered and reputable competitors. not simple.

The Royal Horses

The diesel version we tested is the weakest in Israel's selection; The petrol models offer 200 hp (9.2 seconds from zero to 100) or 250 hp (7.8 seconds), while the 2.0-liter diesel engine offers only 180 hp and 10.1 seconds from zero to 100. Because I've never been more impressed Too much of the word "sport" pinned to the urban Discovery, I am also not disappointed by its moderate performance, certainly in relation to its high price. .

With a 9-speed gearbox, the diesel delivers satisfactory agility and the ability to cruise at 140 mph, while the engine pulses at 2,000 rpm. The sound of the engine is quiet and muffled, the accelerations occur without making noises - it is pleasantly relaxing. The level of comfort and refinement is excellent, the refurbished sports discovery has comfortable and solid racks and relatively high cut tires, which help with the feeling of refinement and comfort. The Sport is sold in the UK with 18, 19 and 20-inch rims; The East Company chose to bring it to Israel with 18-inch rims, which is an excellent and unconventional choice.

The exterior design updates are very small

On the other side of the equation, with a high center of gravity, soft racks and high-cut tires, the Sport does not encourage aggressive sporting driving. The solid steering also allows for fast driving on mountain roads, but there is nothing to talk about serious tire sharpening. Discovery Sports was a great fit for a quick Christmast to Nazareth, and the next day a quick zip-up to her tribe in the south, at ease interrupted only by speed cameras and occasional traffic jams. At 120-140 km / h, he spends close to 10 miles per liter, at 100-120 he will give you 10-12 km / h, which is one of the advantages of the diesel.

The safety specification is full, certainly in the S-Plus version. In case the driver and the safety systems fail to prevent an accident, the last defense wall is an outdoor airbag that opens from the hood within 6 seconds, reducing the amount of injury to pedestrians and cyclists. Inshallah, never open.

A new transmission lever replaces the dial and there is also wireless charging for mobile

Is this Land Rover an SUV?

The British manufacturer's field reputation is represented here by the Terrain Response system that allows Little Land Rover to go beyond asphalt. The sport can be an excellent trail vehicle, far superior to most of the crossovers around it. The angles of the chassis are completely uneven and the ventral spacing is 21.2 inches reasonable, but the bottom of the chassis is surrounded by very sensitive and crisp plastic parts. It doesn't have the Discovery 5's power gear, or the ability to elevate itself on independent air absorbers. It cannot be considered a real SUV unless you are ready to tear and scratch expensive plastics, and then it will surprise you with considerable terrain capabilities. The 60 cut tires also help to build up its surface potential.

Back to the House of Representatives

Only 320 Discovery Sports have been sold to us since 2015 - this is not surprising given the price that has always been high. Model 2020 has undergone minor external changes but has been greatly upgraded in the passenger compartment, refinement level and comfort of travel. The sport is a premium 5 + 2 Worstyle vehicle for the active family, with an area potential that will probably not be fully exploited. British brand advocates may like the Sport, which will find itself in competition with the Mercedes GLB coming soon.
