After decades of production the Land Rover Discovery is still going strong – and for those working in the agricultural sector or other jobs that require heavy-duty work in isolated areas, the Commercial edition is as invaluable as ever. The 4x4 of choice for many who live in rural communities, this model is a highly capable commercial vehicle owing to its spaciousness and confidence when tackling changing environments.
The Discovery Commercial’s exterior is the first sign of its ability to go anywhere with ease. Tough alloy wheels, high-intensity halogen headlamps with daytime running lights, and front fog lamps are all standard fixtures. Roof rails are a no-cost extra with the SE Tech grade, while the range-topping Commercial SE arrives with a durable black plastic rear bumper, wheel arches and door handles.
You can tackle testing off-road terrain head-on in the Discovery, and the cabin has been designed to support you and your business. Seven full-size seats carry all occupants in complete comfort, making the off-roader an excellent crew transporter. You can fold the rear seats to create a van-like cargo capacity of up to 2,558 litres.
Dependable diesel power drives the Discovery Commercial. Land Rover’s 3.0-litre engine produces 252bhp and 600Nm of torque from 2,000rpm which helps you to push through rough terrain and carry heavy loads with ease. Transporting important equipment long distances is made effortless, and the intelligent start/stop technology improves fuel economy and reduces CO2 emissions.
A true all-terrain vehicle, the Discovery Commercial gives you peace of mind when driving off the road with features such as Terrain Response. This technology reconfigures the vehicle’s engine, transmission, throttle and traction settings for optimum control on the surface under the wheels. Gradient Release Control works with Hill Descent Control for stable descents on difficult terrain. Standard-fit rear park distance control prevents accidents when parking in the urban environment, while Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) maximises stability anywhere.
Convenience features such as a Bluetooth phone and music system alongside steering wheel controls allow to stay connected as you drive. A USB socket is complemented by iPod connectivity to put you in command of music playback. InControl Apps is an optional extra that connects the vehicle to your smartphone and the outside world. It allows team members to stay in touch with colleagues and clients when on the road, keeping your business moving forwards.
