Indera Motors, the sole distributor for Jaguar Land Rover in the sultanate presents the luxury performance SUV, the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Whether cruising on the highway or driving through tough terrains, the Land Rover Discovery Sport will sure have you turning head with its sleek, aerodynamic silhouette that embodies what the Discovery Sport family stands for.

The Discovery Sport has a strong road presence and still maintains its iconic, award-winning design that blends practicality and style.

With a profile that now comes with a contemporary and sporty-look combined with Land Rover’s renowned off-road performance capabilities, the Discovery is clearly made for family adventures.

An interior moulded for comfort

Comfort should be paramount in any luxury SUV, and the Discovery Sport exceeded all expectations.

Inside, the driver and passengers are pampered in soft leather seats, surrounded by premium materials and craftsmanship that pushes the envelope for the luxury brand.

The model provides both the driver and passenger ample space for headroom and legroom.

Moreover, the Discovery Sport seats just up to five people comfortably with an optional third-row seat to increase the seating capacity to seven.

Other notable features aside from easy-to-spot premium materials, the Discovery Sport displays a state-of-the-art multimedia system that connects to any device via Bluetooth.

In addition, the Discovery Sport also features wireless charging, multiple USB ports and the Click and Go Accessory System to make connectivity even more convenient for both driver and passengers.

The road to adventure

On the road, the Discovery Sport is full of surprises. Powered by an Ingenium 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel that provides the perfect amount of power for our drive from the Beribi Highway to the Meragang Beach.

Highway cruising is evidently smooth and the cabin is exceptionally quiet and tranquil with the muted road, wind, and traffic noise. Perfect choice for long-distance travel.

On the way there, we were most impressed with the driving dynamics of the Discovery Sport. We encountered potholes and broken surfaces along the Muara Highway, but the Discovery Sport still maintained it’s composure throughout the journey.

Another way that Discovery Sport works to deliver precision is with its steering. The feedback is superb, with just enough weight at the wheel to make the driver feel confident on uneven and twisty roads.

Off the road, is where the Discovery Sport showed its true strength. The All-wheel SUV is effective both on-road and off-road, without compromising daily driving comfort.

With the capabilities of legendary Land Rover DNA, the all-wheel Discovery Sport can handle any sandy, wet and gravelly roads with impeccable ease, thanks to its all-terrain capability, wading ability and Terrain Response 2.

We spent the whole afternoon testing out the Discovery Sport on the sandy terrains of Meragang Beach. Our Discovery Sport came with a Terrain Response 2, a system that allows drivers to shift on from standard to multi-terrain modes for improved off-road performance.

Another notable feature is the ClearSight Ground View which lets you “see” underneath the Discovery Sport while off-road.

When we drove along the Meragang Beach, the feature helped us see where the tires were going and kept logs and rocks away from scraping the bottom of the Discovery Sport.

Other than that, the wide range of advanced driver assistance and safety features on the Discovery Sport was a great help and certainly made our driving easier and safer.

The features also include Rear-View mirror technologies, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Assist, Park Assist and many more.

We were impressed with the award-winning ClearSight rear-view mirror that displays a wide-angle camera view of the area behind the vehicle. Even with three tall people sitting in the rear seat or a wall of luggage at the back, with just a flip of a switch, you can see an HD display of the road behind you.

All-in-all, the Land Rover Discovery Sport offers a family-fun size vehicle for customers who are looking for cutting-edge technology and a passion for adventure.
