  • Discovery Sport Dynamic makes global debut at Frankfurt Motor Show
  • Unique design accents, details and colours set vehicle apart from standard model
  • Technologies including All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) and Gesture Tailgate strengthen Land Rover Discovery Sport's renowned capability and versatility

South Africa, Pretoria - Land Rover has further enhanced the visual appeal of its latest premium, compact SUV with the launch of the Discovery Sport Dynamic at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.



Striking design
The Discovery Sport with Dynamic pack features a number of exterior enhancements, including Narvik Black exterior details, body-coloured mouldings and door claddings and the choice of a unique new 19" wheel design in Satin Dark Grey, or a 20" Gloss Black wheel. Combined with new interior colours and detailing, the new Dynamic design option creates a powerful and striking impression.



"The Discovery Sport Dynamic has been created to heighten the design appeal of the Discovery Sport. Gloss black is a key accent colour differentiator on the exterior, while the use of body coloured bumpers and door claddings emphasise its on-road, sporty presence," said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director and Chief Creative Officer. "With the launch of the Discovery Sport Dynamic, we are offering our customers greater choice in the look and feel of their vehicle."



All-terrain capability
The capability of the Discovery Sport is heightened by the introduction of All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) on petrol models, for 2016. ATPC is an advanced system that enables drivers to set and maintain a steady speed in off-road conditions. Developed by Land Rover's industry-leading all-terrain specialists, ATPC functions similarly to a cruise control system, operational between 2km/h and 30km/h. The system adapts the vehicle's behaviour according to the terrain, allowing even novice users the control of an expert off-road driver. 



ATPC also features a dedicated Launch feature, allowing the vehicle to pull away smoothly and easily, even on problematic low-friction surfaces like fine sand, mud or wet grass.

Supplementing the Discovery Sport's large and varied suite of technologies is a new feature called Gesture Tailgate. This provides the user with the ability to open and close the powered tailgate by means of a kick gesture, enabling the user hands-free access to the load space.

The Discovery Sport is the first member of Land Rover's new Discovery family, has enjoyed a highly successful launch, with sales reaching nearly 30 000 in the first half of 2015. Discovery Sport with Dynamic pack will be available to order in sub-Sahara Africa markets from 2016.
