Ingenium engine developed by Jaguar Land Rover

The Discovery Sport, priced from RM379,800 (excluding roadtax and insurance), has the same Ingenium powerplant as the F-TYPE, developed by Jaguar Land Rover. A turbocharged petrol unit with an output of 240 ps/340 Nm, its power delivery to all four wheels is via a ZF 9-speed automatic transmission. The gear ratios are spread out intelligently for strong acceleration when needed and low revs when cruising at higher speeds for lower noise levels as well as fuel-savings.

As with every modern Land Rover, the Discovery Sport is equally capable on the highway as well as off it, with a comfortable ride for up to 7 persons (5+2 seating is an option). At an early stage in the vehicle’s development programme, Land Rover designers invited a large cross-section of families to gain insights into their needs and usage behaviour. The findings helped shape the Discovery Sport into a versatile premium SUV.

Sharing a similar design as the Range Rover Evoque, the front architecture of the Discovery Sport includes a magnesium crossbeam for high torsional rigidity and reduced weight. However, the B-pillar rearwards is unique to the Discovery Sport, with thousands of hours invested in ensuring every component is packaged as compactly as possible. The chassis is also of lightweight aluminium, keeping overall weight down.

All vehicles distributed by Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia are compatible with the Malaysian climate, environment, fuel quality and meet the Malaysian emission standards. Full aftersales support and parts are available through authorised dealerships around the country.
