The new Land Rover Discovery Sport 2021 has been presented with very interesting new features both at a technological and mechanical level. In addition, to celebrate its launch (the order book is now open), a new special edition has been presented.

The connectivity equipment has been notably improved thanks to the introduction of the latest Pivi and Pivi Pro infotainment system. A multimedia system that allows access to all kinds of digital online services that will facilitate daily life on board this vehicle. Another novelty in this regard is that the Discovery Sport already has an integration with Spotify. It also offers Bluetooth connectivity for two mobile phones simultaneously and a wireless charger for compatible devices.

In this effort to make the Discovery Sport a more connected car, a new second-generation Activity Key has been added to be able to unlock the doors and even lock or start the vehicle when it is nearby without having to use the traditional key. There is also a new cabin air filtration system. In addition, the list of driver assistance systems has been expanded with the reverse traffic monitor with automatic braking and the new rear collision assistant.

The Discovery Sport range has been enriched with the special Black Edition series, although we will talk about it later in this article. With its introduction, it is possible to configure the Land Rover model in the following trim levels: Standard, S, SE, HSE, R-Dynamic SE, R-Dynamic HSE and Black Edition.

Another novelty that the new Discovery 2021 brings with it is a very interesting special edition. It is the new Land Rover Discovery Sport Black Edition. A version that, in addition to offering a more than acceptable performance, presents specific details at the design level and, what is equally remarkable, a complete technological equipment.

The R-Dynamic S trim level was taken as a starting point for the creation of the new Discovery Sport Black Edition. It is available in five colors: Namib Orange, Carpathian Gray, Firenze Red, Yulong White and Hakuba Silver. To the color chosen for the body we must add elements in black to create contrast. A Black Pack paint with a black or gray toned roof. We should also highlight the 20-inch alloy wheels in Gloss Black that reveal the red brake calipers.

The standard equipment of this special edition is another determining factor.

It also features the Active Driveline feature that intelligently switches between front and four wheel drive. In addition, the interior offers the possibility of choosing between a Luxtec Suede or Grained leather finish.

Under the hood is a 2.0-liter Ingenium gasoline engine with 290 hp and 400 Nm of maximum torque associated with a nine-speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel drive system. This mechanic allows you to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 7.4 seconds.
