Available in two powertrain options, the 3.0 Diesel 190 kW and 3.0 Petrol 250 kW - the new Discovery is claimed to be Land Rover’s most versatile SUV yet, with class leading practicality and capability.   

Speaking at the launch, Rohit Suri, President and MD, Jaguar Land Rover India, said, “The new seven seat Discovery distinguishes itself from most of its competition on its design appeal, intelligent versatility, enabling technology and a host of capability related features. New Discovery is a perfect vehicle for people who love to explore and experience new places and terrains and enjoy an outdoor lifestyle.” 


The striking design of the new Discovery sets a new standard. It’s beautifully proportioned with a strong dynamic stance, while wrap-around LED lights and a fast windscreen angle help create a distinctively contemporary design and powerful character. The spacious interior is highly modern in design, delivering space for up to seven adults. Strong vertical and horizontal design lines combined with high quality materials and clever attention to detail lend the Discovery a sense of purpose. The interior feels light and airy, further enhanced by the fixed or front opening panoramic sunroof. 

The stepped roofline, a trademark design feature for the previous four generations, can also be found on the new Discovery as well. 


New Discovery’s intelligent versatility optimizes interior space. The world’s first Intelligent Seat Fold system enables configuring the seating arrangement from inside the vehicle, providing copious luggage space when required. Gesture Control allows opening of the main tailgate with the wave of the foot on either side of the vehicle. The dual-purpose powered Inner Tailgate retains loose items when raised and offers comfortable event seating.

Another first for Land Rover is the Activity Key. It’s a durable, waterproof wristband that locks and unlocks the vehicle allowing outdoor activities without carrying keys. 


The advanced feature -  Park Assist - in new Discovery makes parking easier than ever. While controlling the speed, the vehicle steers itself through parallel and perpendicular parking manoeuvres and can also guide the vehicle out of the space. 

The Drive Pro Pack consists of Lane Keep Assist that can detect lane drift and gently steer the vehicle back into the lane while Driver Condition Monitor detects when the driver shows signs of drowsiness, giving an early warning when one needs to take a break. Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist monitors the traffic ahead adjusting speed automatically to maintain a suitable distance from the vehicle in front, resuming the pre-set speed when the road is clear, while Queue Assist keeps a suitable distance when queuing in traffic. The surround camera system provides as 360° exterior view.


The vehicle’s off-road geometry is class leading. A best-in-class approach angle (34°), ramp angle (27.5°) and departure angle (30°) enable negotiation of the toughest of obstacles. All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC), which is a state-of-the-art system enhances control over challenging surfaces while launch Control enables smooth pull-away on surfaces like wet grass, ice and sand and maintains a constant speed between 1.8 km/h and 30 km/h.
