The passenger compartment of the 2022-2023 Land Rover Discovery Sport remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. Land Rover demonstrated that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sitting in different positions. Analysis of the deceleration of the impact trolley during the test, and analysis of the deformable barrier after the test, revealed that the car would be an aggressive impact partner in a frontal collision and the score was penalised accordingly. In the full-width rigid barrier test, dummy readings of chest compression indicated marginal protection of the chest of the rear passenger but protection of all other body areas was good or adequate. In the side barrier test, all critical parts of the body were well or adequately protected. In the more severe side pole impact, the seat-mounted side thorax airbag was considered not to have deployed correctly, getting trapped behind the interior trim. A penalty was applied and protection of the chest was rated as marginal. Control of excursion (the extent to which a body is thrown to the other side of the vehicle when it is hit from the far side) was adequate. The Discovery Sport does not have a counter-measure to mitigate against occupant to occupant injuries in such impacts. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric analysis of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection. The Land Rover Discovery Sport has an advanced eCall system which alerts the emergency services in the event of a crash and the ‘Post Crash Braking’ system applies the brakes to prevent secondary collisions.

In both the frontal offset and side barrier tests, protection of all critical body areas was good for both child dummies and the Discovery Sport scored maximum points in this part of the assessment. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. One of the child restraints was unstable on the optional third row seats. Otherwise, all of the child restraint types for which the Land Rover Discovery Sport is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car.
