We have already spotted a prototype of the new Discovery SUV, but now we have spotted its performance-based version, which will come in 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport. The compact crossover SUV gets exterior changes that will be very evident in the front-end. However, the best part of the all-terrain off-road vehicle is hidden under the hood, and as we have heard, it will have a powerful engine.
2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport Outdoor Design
As mentioned earlier, the Land Rover Discovery Sport 2018 will not make as many changes, at least for the base model. The front end could receive a new bumper, which has already been seen on a camouflaged test mule. This included slightly larger mist lamp housings and a different design for the central intake. The rumored R version would include a lower suspension, larger wheels wrapped in high-performance summer road tires, flared wheel arches and more aggressive front and rear bumpers. A new exhaust system is also very likely to be installed on this particular version while some unique painting options are expected.
2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport Interior
The Discovery Sport is one of the best cars in its class and there is no doubt about it. It is cheaper than some of its rivals and despite this it offers a lot of features. The design inside the cabin matches the most expensive Range Rover and is great. The materials are excellent also with aluminum, genuine leather and a very small amount of soft plastics. The only real disadvantage here is the high driving position which is to be expected in a large crossover but not in a compact.

2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport Engine
Speaking of performance, the Land Rover Discovery Sport 2018 will likely have a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged unit. Yet if you think it’s the old 240-horsepower unit, you’re wrong because the new crossover SUV really packs something really powerful. The company will add the new Land Rover Ingenium 4-cylinder engine, which speculates to deliver at least 300 horsepower. The powerful unit will be coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission and a full-speed transmission. The European model will also have a diesel option, but we have no further details on this issue.
According to the information gathered so far, the presentation of the new Discover Sport will take place next year, not before September. The official release will follow shortly thereafter, so this model could be achieved by the end of 2017. With additional competition like Mercedes-AMG GLC43 or already mentioned Macan and BMW X3 M40i, it is possible for 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport To obtain the SVR badge.
