2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport Updated with Connectivity, New Appearance Package

Tile App Compatibility, New Infotainment System On Offer as Well

Apr 27, 2016
Land Rover is updating the 2017 Discovery Sport compact SUV with an improved infotainment system, additional optional features, and an optional appearance package. Base price for the Discovery Sport rises $240 to $37,695.
The most obvious change on the 2017 Disco is the Dynamic Design Pack, which will be available on the HSE and HSE Lux. It includes unique front and rear bumpers (with integrated exhaust outlets), black exterior detailing, and black 20-inch wheels. Contrast stitching, unique carpeting, and metal pedals and dashboard accents bring some of the package’s goodies inside. Also on offer for the 2017 model are four new exterior colors.

Jaguar Land Rover is also donating its InControl Touch Pro infotainment system to the Discovery Sport, featuring a larger 10.2-inch touchscreen and on-screen apps. A pinch-and-swipe feature makes the system feel like a tablet, as long as the screen is responsive. The infotainment system is the first automotive use of Intel Quad-Core processing via a 60GB solid-state drive. The system also integrates Tile, the tracking app, to alert drivers if specified items are not in the vehicle. That would make leaving home without your wallet much less common.
Finally, the Discovery Sport now features assistive technology to keep drivers safer and more alert behind the wheel. Driver Condition Monitor keeps an eye on driver inputs to detect fatigue, then alerts the driver if it detects signs of drowsiness. The Intelligent Speed Limiter takes advantage of the vehicle’s existing Traffic Sign Recognition, prompting the driver of any speed-limit changes and helping keep the Land Rover out of unsafe (or police-attracting) velocities. Finally, Lane Keep Assist uses forward-facing cameras to monitor and maintain lane position.
Although the changes are small, they’re enough to keep the new-for-2015 SUV fresh until its new Ingenium engines arrive, likely for 2018.
