The interior layout, fit and finish
Driving position and dashboard
The driver’s seat in the Land Rover Discovery Sport is a little narrow but reasonably comfortable and only entry-level trim requires you to adjust it manually (the posher trims have full electric adjustment, including for lumbar support).
The cushioned lid of the raised centre cubby doubles as a well-placed armrest and the dashboard is easy to figure out. There are physical dials to adjust the temperature of the climate control and engage the off-road modes, but the controls for the heated windows are touch-sensitive. That makes them fiddlier to use on the move than conventional buttons that you can locate by feel.
All versions come with front and rear parking sensors plus a surround-view camera as standard, although it should be said that the specific towing view isn’t that helpful because the camera is off to the side slightly and the hitch cannot be seen. A ClearSight rear-view mirror is standard from HSE trim. It displays an image from the car's rear camera on the interior mirror, enabling you to see what's behind you even when the rear window is blocked by people or luggage
LED headlights are standard across the Discovery Sport range, but if you go for R-Dynamic trim or above you’ll get upgraded versions that have distinctive daytime running light signature and 'animated' indicator lights.
