All versions of the Discovery Sport come with an 8.0in colour touchscreen as standard, but you can’t get Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The straightforward home menu makes it easy to jump between key functions, which include sat-nav on all but entry-level Pure and SE trims, although it's a shame that the screen doesn't respond a little more promptly when you press it.
Beyond the core home menu, some of the other processes – such as finding a radio station or inputting a new destination – are quite convoluted and the necessary icons aren't always obvious. Some of the icons are quite small, too, making them tricky to hit while you’re driving.
More positively, all models get Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming, a DAB radio, a USB socket and controls on the steering wheel. Even the entry-level models come with a very effective 10-speaker sound system, while HSE trim and upwards get an 11-speaker system with a subwoofer.
An optional 10in InControl Touch Pro infotainment system is optional on HSE trim and above and is much better than the standard 8.0in version. It's very pricey, though, and still not quite as good as the best systems out there, such as those in the BMW X3 and Audi Q5.
