Most styling changes on the updated Disco Sport are at the front, such as the slimmer grille, flanked by slimmer redesigned headlights. Locally, JLRM is only offering the Discovery Sport in a sole R-Dynamic variant, supplemented by the optional Black Pack blacked-out trims for a sportier exterior look.
However, the main highlight of the new Land Rover Discovery Sport is definitely its interior. Changes are so drastic that without being told, you probably would’ve mistaken the updated Disco Sport for an all-new car.
Not only does it come with plenty of equipment – 10-inch infotainment Touch Pro display, 12-inch digital instrument cluster, and a generation-two head-up display just to name a few, but the overall construction and luxurious material choices too suggest that a lot of work was put into getting the Disco Sport on par with the other Land Rover offerings.
There are also significant updates underneath too. Albeit being a facelift, the new Discovery Sport is built on Land Rover’s new Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA), which promises better ride comfort and allows for improved aerodynamics. There’s also the new and improved all-wheel drive system featuring Driveline Disconnect and Terrain Response 2 system with Auto mode.
Powering the updated SUV is the 2.0-litre turbocharged Ingenium engine, producing 200 hp and 320 Nm of torque, paired to a ZF-sourced nine-speed automatic gearbox.
The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport is now available in either a five or five-plus-two seating configuration, priced at RM379,800 and RM409,800 respectively. For more information, do check out our written piece on the launch, or the in-depth photo gallery for a detailed look.
