Suite of updates for Land Rover Discovery
LAND Rover and its Jaguar sibling have been working through their line-ups at a tremendous rate, refreshing them and updating along the way.
Among those to receive a bunch of updates is the jumbo Land Rover Discovery family 4x4. As elsewhere in the Jaguar Land Rover family, it gets more efficient engines, new tech and some subtle styling tweaks.
The cabin has been updated to include a new infotainment system, which totally overhauls the big family 4×4's infotainment experience with an 11.4-inch curved screen, alongside a 12.3-inch instrument display.
There are 14 storage locations around the vehicle totalling almost 42 litres. Meanwhile cargo capacity is 258 litres with all seven seats in place, 1,231 litres with five seats, and 2,485 litres with two seats up. You can fold the seats through a menu in the touchscreen, too.
There are three new 3.0-litre straight-six-cylinder engines, each featuring mild-hybrid technology.
These include a single 355bhp petrol and two diesels, with 246bhp and 296bhp.
The entry-level engine is a 296bhp four-cylinder petrol unit with no mild-hybrid electrification.
Trim levels include S, SE, HSE and R-Dynamic. A Commercial vehicle is also offered, with a 2,024-litre cargo space and additional underfloor storage.
The Discovery has always had excellent off-roading capabilities and has Land Rover's 'Terrain Response' system as standard.
This can be upgraded to 'Terrain Response 2' for even better ability over difficult surfaces.
Meanwhile, Land Rover says the Discovery’s towing capacity exceeds the legal maximum in every market it is sold.
Prices start at £53,090.
