Exterior / Interior of 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport
The exterior of this new arrival will remind you of Discovery Vision Concept. It is as smooth, as round and has as dashing looks of the latter. The entire look is however not as unwieldy, rather it looks like the bigger version of Evoque. The front has more curved and less sharp styling that stresses its excellence in performance and speed. There is the mesh grille that has HID headlights surrounding it. Furthermore, these headlights have LED lights placed in circles inside them. The lights at the back are contemporary in a similar fashion. The exterior is available in strikingly beautiful 9 colors such as Santorini black and Indus silver. Five options in alloy wheel design are also offered. Its dimensions are 180.7 x 85.6 x 67.9 inches while the wheelbase is 107.9 inches. It weighs 3844.9 lbs.
The interior is distinct because of the 5 + 2 seating arrangement provided by the company. The extra 2 seats have been placed in the rear, which are actually meant for children. Great opulence and luxury oozes from every corner of the cabin. Authentic metal interior trim, multi-zone temperature control, and customizable mood lighting are some of the features you will adore. For a more comfortable seating, the second-row seats can be brought to a reclining position.
