Comments

The Discovery Sport D180 emits minimal quantities of ammonia, NH3, in the laboratory tests. Particulate number is also well controlled by the filter with which the car is equipped. Emissions of NOx are excessive in the cold ambient temperature laboratory test and in the on-road congestion test.

Comments

CO2 emissions are quite high, both in the laboratory and the road tests, the vehicle's weight counting against its energy efficiency.

Comments

Emissions of Methane, CH4, are low in all of the laboratory tests. However, those of CO2 and of N2O are high, sufficiently so that in some tests, no points are scored overall, and the Discovery Sport achieves an index of only 0.6 in this part of the assessment.

Our verdict

The Land Rover Discovery Sport weighs over two tonnes and, in the 2.0 litre diesel form tested here, has a modest 132 kW of power but a hefty 430 Nm of torque. With high and low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation, selective catalytic reduction and a diesel particulate filter, the car makes a fine job of controlling pollutant emissions, only NOx being overly high in some of the more challenging tests. It is in the areas of Energy Efficiency and, especially, Greenhouse Gases that the vehicle struggles. Here, its high weight counts against it and values of CO2 are high, the declared value of 188 g/km being achieved only in the cold-start laboratory test. Emissions of N2O, a particularly potent greenhouse gas, are also high, contributing to a low index in this part of the assessment and dragging the average down to give an overall 1½ star rating.
