For Land Rover lovers out there, a new Land Rover is ready to hit the summer market. The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport is a sleek new vehicle that is ready for you to explore. This updated Land Rover is a great vehicle for those SUV enthusiasts out there.

In addition to its cool design, the Land Rover Discovery Sport is extremely tech savvy. People feel as though it should handle off road adventures a little bit better, but nobody can dispute the technology that comes with it.

On what is called the “infotainment” screen, drivers are treated to a vast array of amazing features. First, drivers are given the ClearSight Ground View system in which a camera provides you with a view of the terrain coming up in front of the vehicle. And, the quality of the image is impeccable. This screen will help drivers navigate through the toughest of terrains without having to have a real-life person direct you.

This same type of technology is offered in the rear as well. You will have no issues seeing anything behind you, even if your Rover is filled with passengers or equipment. It is like you are sitting in the back yourself.

For the music lovers out there, the Discovery Sport offers a touchscreen system that you can connect Apple CarPlay or your Android to. You will have a built in 4G Wi-Fi hotspot for people to connect to and you will be able to control what is happening in the vehicle by downloading their app. People will be in awe of its technological features.

Stressful day at work? Dreading a traffic filled ride home? No worries with the Discovery Sport. Passengers in the front seat will be treated to a massage as they drive. The seats are made from Luxtex, which simulates leather but is actually recycled polyester microfiber, which is an added comfort.

Two engines with turbocharged four-cylinders paired with nine speed automatic and standard all-wheel drive will have you driving through any kind of terrain with ease. 246 horsepower will give you that powerful feel that are desiring. Three rows of seating are available, which when folded down, offers you a ton of space to pack cargo in for the long drives. Despite its smaller stature compared to other Land Rovers, it does provide the space that large vehicles offer you.

The Discovery Sport does fairly well in terms of gas mileage. Drivers will be looking at around 25 miles per gallon or between 400-500 miles between gas fill ups. The price for the sport SUV will start at around $90,000. The more gizmos and gadgets that you want to add, the higher the price will be.

This facelift from previous models really make it an intriguing buy for Land Rover fans. Check out sites such as The Good Van Company to see updates on Land Rovers as well as reviews at all you need to know websites. If you are in the market for a fresh summer upgrade, the 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport might just be the vehicle for you!
