The hotly anticipated fifth-generation Land Rover Discovery was unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. The official release date for this versatile SUV has been set for spring 2017 – so watch this space. Delivering impeccable off-road drive performance and versatility in the city-the all New Land Rover Discovery is both sophisticated and practical offering an impressive capacity of up to 3.500kg.
The all-new edition of the 26-year-old icon promises to be more sophisticated than ever, while maintaining outstanding levels of practicality. Expect a beautifully proportioned sporty exterior, with softer curves and a floating roof. This stylish model looks right at home in the city, but is also excellent when dealing with the challenges of off-roading. With smooth curves and a floating roof it’s guaranteed to be noticed on the road. The heated front and rear windscreens will quickly clear any fog and ice to give you a swift start in those cold winter mornings. Equipped with a modular seven-seat interior, the all-new Land Rover Discovery enables you to create a seating layout suitable for every journey. By simply folding down any of the 6 seats, you can create enough space for bulky sports gear or luggage.
Inside, high-quality materials – think premium leather, wood and metal – combined with exquisite craftsmanship create a truly refined feel. The interior is also brilliantly versatile. Intelligent Seat Fold lets you configure the seven-seat arrangement using switches located in the load space, on the main touchscreen or even remotely via your smartphone. At the rear, there’s ample space for bulky sports gear or luggage – capacity ranges from 258 litres to 2,406 litres. Cutting-edge vehicle and infotainment technologies also feature – from Meridian™ audio systems to InControl Touch Pro. A suite of ingenious driving and parking aids enhance safety for everyone on board. You will appreciate Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Autonomous Emergency Braking and the 360-degree surround camera system both on- and off-road.
Your all-new Discovery will be powered by a refined diesel or petrol engine that suits your lifestyle. Ranging from a 2.0-litre Sd4 unit with 240bhp through to a 3.0-litre Si6 petrol version with 340bhp, this model excels in power and performance. What’s more, an impressive limit of 3,500kg makes towing effortless and the model can wade through waters of up to 90cm in depth. A wide choice of petrol and diesel engines gives you the chance to choose the Discovery that most suits your lifestyle. Ranging from a 2.0-litre Sd4 unit with 240bhp through to a 3.0-litre Si6 petrol version with 340bhp, the new Discovery excels in power and performance.
Rough terrains require reliable safety features, therefore the Discovery’s safety list is long with Dynamic Stability, Gradient Acceleration, Traction, Corner Brake and Roll Stability, all to help keep your vehicle safely planted on the ground, as well as preventing skidding. Hill Descent and Ascent Assist also help tackle steep slopes effortlessly.
