REVOLUTIONARY DESIGN, INGENIOUS VERSATILITY AND UNRIVALLED LAND ROVER CAPABILITY
Form, function and exemplary levels of finesse are brought together to help create one of Land Rover’s most compelling vehicles to date. The vehicle’s exterior design is a revolutionary re-imagining of Discovery for the next generation and introduces a new level of refinement as demonstrated by its beautifully crafted and sculpted surfaces.
The highly desirable interior is a re-imagining of the classic Discovery design elements with the striking use of strong horizontal and vertical lines connecting through the main facia beam. The use of materials such as premium leather, authentic wood and metal finishers, coupled with focused craftsmanship and precision create an air of cultured modern living.
The optional sliding electric panoramic1 or fixed panoramic roof2 enhances the sense of space in the vehicle’s interior and floods it with natural light, including the third row of seats. Importantly, the toughened glass has a dark tint to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the cabin. Powered interior blinds are also provided for additional privacy or shade.
A beautifully realised addition to the Discovery family. Discovery Landmark Edition includes 20" 5 split-spoke 'Style 5011' wheels with Gloss Black finish and the Dynamic Exterior Design Pack as standard. This edition also features a unique aluminium trim finisher on both the door and instrument panel.
Discovery's seven full-size seats3 truly exemplify comfort and versatility. With optional Intelligent Seat Fold this allows you to configure the second and third row seating using cargo space switches or on the main Touchscreen. You can remotely configure the seats when you’re not actually in it, via the InControl Remote smartphone app. The Remote Intelligent Seat Fold Pack allows you to do so away from the vehicle.
The enhanced next-generation optional Head-up Display4 presents key vehicle data including your speed, gear position and navigation directions, on the windscreen. It features full-colour, high-resolution graphics, enabling you to see relevant information with ease.
The Land Rover iGuide app uses the latest augmented reality technology to explain all the need-to-know features and controls of your Discovery. It also doubles as a mobile owners’ manual, ensuring you always have the answer to any question to hand.
Each and every passenger in Discovery enjoys a truly comfortable ride, with a generous amount of legroom offered. Those in the second row will find they have 954mm, whilst in the optional third row, a plentiful 850mm is provided. There’s ample room for up to seven adults to travel in comfort.
From the upper and lower glovebox on SE, HSE and HSE Luxury, to central armrest stowage with an optional chiller compartment and space for two iPads5, two 1 litre bottles or five iPad5 minis – you’ll find space in places you simply wouldn’t expect.
To ensure that the interior is maintained at your perfect temperature, Discovery features a highly efficient climate control system. Optional6 on all models, the four-zone automatic system ensures everyone in the cabin can adjust the temperature in their individual space for greater comfort.
Discovery is packed with charging points which are available for all three rows of seats. So no matter where they sit, every single passenger can stay entertained; whether on their tablets, mobile phones or other devices.

By maintaining a constant speed and applying braking separately to each wheel, Hill Descent Control (HDCTM) takes all the strain out of negotiating those difficult slopes.
Optional Advanced Tow Assist7 allows you to control the direction of your trailer and your vehicle when reversing by using the rotary Terrain Response 2 controller. When a tow bar is fitted the system will then control the vehicle's steering to achieve the desired trailer trajectory, which is displayed with the current trajectory on the infotainment Touchscreen.
With a state-of-the-art aluminium monocoque body, Discovery enjoys greater levels of performance, together with improved strength, sustainability and efficiency. At up to 460kg lighter than its predecessor8, and utilising the latest in materials and build technologies, the vehicle can readily take the knocks associated with off-road driving.
All engines are paired with the advanced electronically controlled ZF 8-speed Automatic Transmission. Tuned by Land Rover engineers to combine silky-smooth shifting with exceptionally rapid response – gear changes are almost imperceptible, with each shift completed in just 200 milliseconds.
Discovery incorporates sustainable design with intelligent material choices. The use of aluminium in the body structure allows a 9 percent9 reduction in CO2 emissions over its life cycle. Our closed-loop aluminium supply chain also ensures any surplus high-grade aluminium from our sheet stamping process is re-used.
