An article from Automotive News summed up the systems concisely:


http://www.autonews.com/article/20140902/OEM04/140909979/land-rover-sets-base-discovery-sport-price-at-38920


The Discovery Sport has a host of optional and standard driver assistance systems. Standard features include trailer stability assist, tow assist and tow hitch assist, and headlights and wipers that turn on automatically when it rains.


Optional features include park assist, lane-departure warning and traffic-sign recognition.


The optional autonomous emergency braking system uses stereo cameras to help avoid collisions or minimize their effects. It works at speeds up to 50 mph, first warning the driver and, if the driver fails to respond, then applying the brakes.


Discovery Sport has what Land Rover calls an intelligent awd system. The Terrain Response system sets steering, throttle response, the gearbox, center-coupling, braking and stability control depending on the surface conditions. It has four settings: general, grass/gravel/snow, mud and ruts, and sand.


The Discovery Sport also has hill descent control that maintains a set speed during steep inclines; a gradient release control system that progressively releases the brakes coming off an incline; roll stability control; dynamic stability control to correct oversteering and understeering; and electronic traction control.

These are some great features, features which i'm not sure if the competition has but so far it looks like it's things like this which will make the discovery an even more attractive SUV compared to the rest.
