Second Generation Discovery Sport 2020 will compete against the likes of BMW X3, Audi Q5, and Volvo XC60 in the Indian market.
The 2020 Discovery Sport is 7mm shorter in length and 3mm taller than the outgoing model. With the revamped design, the Discovery Sport sports a more premium look with redesigned headlamps, LED Daytime Running Lights, taillights and reworked bumpers. It comes equipped with a digital instrument cluster and a 10-inch Touch Pro infotainment system with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There are exciting changes like a new steering wheel design, 4G Wifi Hotspot, wireless charging and USB ports. Reworked front and rear bumpers lend a muscular look to the SUV. The seating configuration is 5+2 for its occupants. The vehicle carries forward old style design with blackened pillars, a rakish windshield, and a fresh set of alloy wheels.
