Smart-key entry, which lets you unlock and start the car provided the key is on your person. You can also open the tailgate, by waving your foot under the rear of the car.
A leather-wrapped steering wheel with tilt and reach adjustment, which carries buttons for operating the audio system, the cruise control, and calls from your smartphone via Bluetooth.
Leather seat trim, and power adjustment for the front seats.
Dual-zone climate control, so that the driver and passenger can each set their desired cabin temperature.
A sound system with an analogue radio, input from your smartphone or iPod via USB or Bluetooth audio streaming, and at least 10 speakers, controllable from an 8.0-inch or bigger touchscreen. Satellite navigation, with voice recognition.
A Remote Essentials app, compatible with most smartphones, that allows you to remotely lock and unlock the car, and check on things like fuel level and door and window status. It can also help you find the car in a big carpark, with a beep and flash function.
At least four USB charging points for mobile devices, and three 12-volt outlets.
A rear-view camera, and rear parking sensors (which help you judge your distance from obstacles behind).

Daytime running lights, which help other drivers see you.
Electronic traction control, which inhibits wheelspin on slippery surfaces.

Hill Descent Control, which can control your speed automatically on steep downhill tracks, letting you concentrate on steering.
Alloy wheels, and a full-size spare (unless you option seven seats, in which case you get a space-saver spare).
Autonomous emergency braking, and Lane departure warning.
Seven airbags, and Electronic Stability Control. (For the placement of airbags, and more on Discovery Sport safety systems, please open the Safety section below.)
The Discovery Sport is covered by a three-year, 100,000km warranty. The body is covered for an additional three years for corrosion.
