For the 2019 model year, the Discovery Sport is presented in four trim levels, all sporting the same 2.0-liter inline-four by default. Producing 237 hp and 251 lb-ft, all four models feature all-wheel-drive and a nine-speed automatic transmission; two of these trims can be fitted with a souped-up engine that puts out 286 hp and 295 lb-ft. The range comprises the SE, HSE, Landmark, and HSE Luxury. Configured as a standard five-seater, a third-row consisting of two seats can be added to any model, too.
While all models have hill start and descent assist, push-button start, auto headlights, and rain-sensing wipers, the base SE is fitted with halogen lamps while the rest get Xenons with LED signature lighting - the top three trims also have access to adaptive headlights and come standard with a panoramic roof.
The HSE ups the partial leather seating on the base model to perforated leather, and adds more adjustability to the front seats (up from ten-way on the base, to 12-way on the HSE), an auto-dimming rearview mirror, keyless entry, a garage door opener, powered gesture tailgate, and standard navigation.
The Landmark trim is special for 2019, and takes on a bold, dynamic aesthetic with distinctive front bumpers, 19-inch Gloss Dark Grey wheels, grained leather seats, a Carpathian Grey contrast roof, Ebony interior headlining, and a Dark Grey brushed aluminum center stack.
At the top of the range is the HSE Luxury, which adds an SD Navigation system, satellite and HD radio, configurable ambient interior lighting, 19-inch Diamond Turned wheels, perforated Windsor leather seats, and a top-notch ten-speaker Meridian sound system.
The base model SE doesn't have access to many additional packages, although some standalone options may be worth considering if you have to opt for it, namely the Vision Assist package for $820 and heated front and rear seats for $1,330 by means of the Climate Comfort Package. Optioning on the third row of seating costs $1,785 for all trim levels.
Packages worth mentioning for the remaining three trims include two versions of the Driver Assist Plus Package - the first of which covers autonomous braking, lane-keep assist and traffic sign recognition for $410, and the more advanced version which adds navigation, Wi-Fi, and 17-speakers from a Meridian surround sound setup, at $3,825.
Adding heating and ventilation to your seating on the upper three trims will set you back $1,635, and also fits a heated leather steering wheel and heated windshield. Blind-spot monitoring with reverse traffic detection will cost an additional $510, while a head-up display and Parking Assistant are rolled into one package for $1,840.
