Featuring the latest generation of powerful and efficient six-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, advanced Pivi Pro infotainment and superior comfort and practicality, New Discovery remains one of the most capable, connected and versatile full seven-seat premium SUVs in the world.
Discovery DNA design cues – including the clamshell bonnet, the stepped roof and the highly visible C-pillar – remain, but New Discovery delivers a bold exterior evolution optimized to project a more confident road presence.
The model is installed with new signature LED headlights with a daytime running light and animated sweeping front and rear indicators. As well as a revised front bumper features a wider body-coloured graphic and new side vents.
At the rear, New Discovery features new signature LED lights, which are joined across the back of the vehicle by a new Gloss Black panel. Following Land Rover’s reductive design philosophy, this panel incorporates the trademark Discovery script, providing a cleaner rear graphic.
In cabin features include Land Rover’s cutting edge Pivi Pro infotainment and a completely redesigned centre console houses its 48% larger 28.95 cm (11.4) full HD touchscreen. Land Rover’s SOTA technology allows owners to update as many as 44 individual electronic modules, without visiting a Retailer.
In combination with the 31.24 cm (12.3) Interactive Driver Display, New Discovery provides high-definition 3D mapping within the instrumentation, leaving the central touchscreen free to control other applications.
Passenger comfort is supported by Cabin Air Ionisation, now available with PM2.5 air filtration technology. It actively scans incoming air, measuring its quality and automatically uses advanced filters to reduce the level of allergens, toxins and harmful particulates in the cabin.
New Discovery introduces new straight-six Ingenium engines, both petrol and diesel. The new engines are available alongside Land Rover’s four-cylinder P300 Ingenium petrol powertrain.
The straight-six engine family was designed and developed in-house and the advanced diesel is available in 221 kW output, while the petrol delivers 265 kW. New Discovery engine line-up in full:
P300: 221 kW, 2.0 I four-cylinder petrol, 400 Nm of torque at 1 500- 4 500 rpm
P360: 265 kW, 3.0 I six-cylinder petrol, 500 Nm of torque at 1 750- 5 000 rpm
D300: 221 kW, 3.0 I six-cylinder diesel, 650 Nm of torque at 1 500- 2 500 rpm
All New Discovery models feature an advanced driveline which optimizes the torque split between front and rear axles, using a range of sensors to distribute torque to suit the conditions.
The new Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system maximizes traction, on-road dynamics and driveline efficiency, resulting in improved fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions in normal driving, with no compromise to Discovery’s trademark all-terrain capability.
With Terrain Response 2 technology, New Discovery is always automatically primed to suit the driving conditions while the new Wade Mode optimizes the vehicle for deep water fording – even applying the brakes automatically when the driver disengages Wade Mode, to restore full performance from the first application of the brakes.
