2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE LUX 2.0L Turbocharged is the Newest Member of the Discovery Family
Following the reintroduction of the Discovery nameplate in 2015, Land Rover is pushing strong into 2016 with the introduction of new powertrains, upgraded infotainment and connectivity systems and enhanced driver assistance features across its range of vehicles.
And the recent demise of entry-level and not-so-attractive LR2 leads way to the 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport for those looking to get into the storied brand at an affordable price.
Three Discovery Models and Price-points
The new Discovery starts at $41,790 MSRP CAD for the Sport SE 2.0L Turbocharged I-4 with 240hp found in all the models, followed by the $46,790 Sport HSE 2.0L Turbocharged I-4, topping off with the $50,290 Sport HSE LUX 2.0L Turbocharged I-4 you see here.
New for 2016 Discovery Sport
As previous year, the Discovery Sport offers seven-passenger seating in an optional “5+2” configuration, bringing added versatility to the compact premium SUV market
New features for 2016 include a Waitomo Grey premium metallic exterior color; the InControl Protect & Connect on all Discovery Sport models integrating features such as SOS Emergency Assistance and Roadside Assistance calling buttons plus increased functionality providing owners with the capability to lock and unlock vehicle doors, remote start the engine and initiate the climate control.
Upgrades on this 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport
The 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport here starts at the $50,290 price marker, adding the following features:
InControl Connect Pack: $700
Row 3 Pack: $1,900
InControl Protect: $450
Satellite Radio: $450
20-inch wheels – Style 511: $1,500
Ebony Headlining: $300
Climate Front & Heated Rear Seats: $800
Retractable Cargo Cover: $150
Destination & Delivery: $1,575
Green Tax: $100
Total price for this model comes to $56,540.
The styling is sleek and the road handling/performance is totally unparalleled in this class at this price, but the 2016 Discovery Sport could use a better head unit interface which functions horribly and looks outdated. But as a fairly new contender, all is forgiven as the Discovery Sport will continue to see upgrades and arguably stellar sales as the British brand continues to push hard in the popular compact SUV segment.
