The updated Land Rover Discovery Sport crosses are on sale in the UK.

The model received a revised line of diesel units, as well as an improved infotainment system and a new petrol variation with the Black prefix in the name, which is driven by a 290-horsepower turbo engine.

The standard diesel “four” on the British cross was boosted from 150 to 163 hp. (380 Nm). In addition, instead of the D150 index, D165 came. The D180 version is now designated the D200 and features a 204 hp Ingenium diesel engine, up from the previous 180 hp. Together with the “junior” motor, a manual transmission or automatic transmission functions, and with an older one, an exclusively automatic transmission. As before, the all-wheel drive Discovery Sport features an MHEV system with a 48-volt starter-generator.

Another innovation is the return of the 290-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo engine. At the same time, only a special variation of Discovery Sport Black will be equipped with such a unit, featuring a black exterior decor, 20-inch wheels and a wide list of basic equipment. Such a cross accelerates to 100 km / h in 7.4 seconds. In addition, the updated cars got a different steering wheel and multimedia complexes Pivi and Pivi Pro, which can be updated “over the air”.

Dealers brands have already announced the start of accepting orders for restyled crosses. UK market pricing starts at £ 31,915

In addition, a prototype of a Land Rover Defender with a V8 engine was recently spotted at the Nurburgring. It should be emphasized that there are currently no details about the powertrain of the new model from the British automaker.
