Land Rover Announces Updates for the 2017 Discovery Sport
Explore the design and technology updates featured in the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport, arriving in showrooms this fall.
There are exciting things ahead for the Land Rover family, and the 2017 Discovery Sport is a great example of what’s to come. Land Rover has just announced that the 2017 Discovery Sport will feature new options including the Dynamic Design Pack and optional Land Rover InControl® Touch Pro™ infotainment system. These updates were chosen to give drivers and enhanced experience and to keep the model up to date with the latest Land Rover technology.
“We are sure drivers are going to love the new design additions,” shares Duane Sanders, General Manager of Santa Barbara Auto Group. “They offer the latest innovations from Land Rover and create an even more elevated driving experience.”
The Dynamic Design Pack is the biggest standout option in the new 2017 Discovery Sport. It will be available on HSE and HSE LUX trim models. It offers the following updates:
- Distinct front and rear bumpers with integrated tailpipes
- Back accent exterior detailing
- Gloss black 20-inch wheels
- Four new metallic exterior body color options
- Contrast stitching on the interior leather seating
- Custom carpet mats
- Metal finish pedals
- Premium inlays on the center dash panels
Technology Forges Ahead
In addition to the dynamic design updates, the 2017 Discovery Sport will also feature the latest infotainment technology thanks to the InControl Touch Pro system. It is delivered on a 10.2 inch touchscreen and offers intuitive controls and menus for a seamless user experience. The system operates similar to a smartphone app to allow users to simply swipe, tap, and pinch as they are used to doing on a personal device.
Another key innovative feature included on the new model is the Intelligent Speed Limiter. This technology allows the vehicle to recognize speed limit signs and detect changes in the prevailing speed limit. When a change is detected, the system will alert the driver to adjust accordingly and can even automatically adjust the cruising speed based on driver prompts. This will greatly reduce the chances of exceeding the speed limit and help drivers be more aware of prevailing speed limits.
The 2017 Discovery Sport is expected to arrive in the Land Rover Santa Barbara showroom by August of 2016 and will start at an estimated MSRP of $37,695. Drivers who are interested in learning more or placing an order can contact a friendly representative at Land Rover Santa Barbara any time between now and the August release.
