Fantastic Off-Road Capabilities
The Land Rover experience wouldn’t be complete without offering amazing off-road capabilities. The 2023 Land Rover Discovery Sport doesn’t disappoint in this category. Every trim level automatically gets all-wheel drive and plenty of ground clearance to help it get over rocks and other debris.
The 2023 Discovery Sport has a feature called All Terrain Progress Control. This technology aids the driver in maintaining a steady speed while taking on challenging terrain. An available 3D Surround Camera gives the driver a good view of the ground in front of the vehicle. This can aid in slow rock crawling or help to avoid certain obstacles. The Discovery Sport can even tackle water fording as long as it doesn’t exceed 23.6 inches deep.
Class-Leading Cargo Space
The Land Rover Discovery Sport was built for adventures. Whether your adventures happen near or far, there’s plenty of room to stow your gear and whatever cargo the adventure calls for. Even if your adventure is as simple as a grocery run or taking the kids and all of their equipment to a sporting event.
The Discovery Sport offers 32.7 cubic-feet of cargo space while all of the seats are in use. By folding the rear seats down, this can be expanded up to 60 cubic-feet of space. With the rear seats configured in this way, there is 69.7 inches of length between the first row and the back of the cargo area.
Available Third Row
An optional third row folds out adding two extra seats, bringing the total passenger capacity of the 2023 Land Rover Discovery Sport up to seven. The seats in this last row can easily be folded in to allow for more cargo space when needed. This setup is perfect for large families who need an extra couple of seats for the kids. If you only need seating for five, the standard configuration of the Discovery Sport has just what you need to fit your passengers comfortably.
An Engine That Makes a Statement
The latest Land Rover Discovery Sport has a solid powertrain with a strong engine. Every model is powered by a turbocharged 4-cylinder that produces 249 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. There’s an automatic transmission system for every model. The 2023 Land Rover Discovery Sport allows the driver to select from different driving modes for specific situations. This SUV has what it takes to get you over or through the challenging terrain of a Chicagoland winter or a drive out to a local scenic spot like Starved Rock. No matter where you go, the engine of the Discovery Sport has the power to get you there.
Rugged and Handsome Exterior
The 2023 Land Rover Discovery Sport has an attractive exterior design. It’s rugged looking, like an off-road vehicle should be.

Strong Towing Capabilities

Smooth and Refined Ride
The 2023 Discovery Sport provides a surprisingly smooth ride on paved roads. It’s quiet too, with little-to-no body vibrations or engine vibrations. Good sound proofing keeps out raucous city noises and excessive noise pollution. The suspension system works fantastically well over off-road terrain or on smooth, paved surfaces. It soaks up pretty much every bump and midwest pothole in the road.
