Land Rover India has opened bookings for the fifth generation Discovery. The All-New Land Rover Discovery will be available for sale in India from November 2017. Pricing starts at INR 68.05 Lakh and goes up to INR 1.02 Crore. The bookings can be made at any of the 25 Land Rover dealerships across India or online at www.findmeasuv.in.The SUV will be available for sale from November 2017.
The new Land Rover Discovery will be available in 5 variants – S, SE, HSE, HSE Luxury and First Edition. Customers have a choice of two engine options. They can either opt for the 3-litre TDV6 diesel engine which produces 258 PS at 3750 rpm and 600 Nm of torque at 2000 rpm or a 3-litre Si6 petrol engine which produces 340 PS at 6500 rpm and 450 Nm of torque between 3500-5000 rpm. The engines are fitted with a ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox, which has been engineered to combine smooth shifts with sharp responses and optimised fuel efficiency.
The all-new Land Rover Discovery was previewed by the Discovery Vision Concept, which was showcased at the New York Auto Show in 2014. The exterior design features the trademark stepped roofline which we have seen on the previous versions of the Discovery as well. The overall design is a step forward from the boxy style associated with the Discovery brand. It is also the most aerodynamic Discovery yet with a drag coefficient of 0.33, contributing to improved efficiency and refinement.
The new SUV looks more aggressive and dynamic. It features sculpted surfaces at the front and the jewel-like LED headlamps with the state-of-the-art daytime running lamps which deliver a modern appearance with a distinctive new light signature. The sides highlight the optimised volumes and proportions of new Discovery. The new design features pronounced, yet smoothly contoured wheel arches, giving the new Land Rover Discovery a planted, more dynamic appearance.
At the rear, the horizontally placed LED tail lamps give the new Discovery a sporty appeal. It now features a single piece tail gate, unlike the previous models which had a split arrangement. The larger opening makes loading and unloading luggage easier than before. The SUV also features a rear spoiler which has been honed in the wind tunnel and plays a significant role in minimising dirt accumulating on the tailgate, thereby optimising rear visibility without compromising aerodynamic performance.
Inside this aggressive looking SUV, lies a sophisticated, versatile and spacious interior. Materials such as premium leather, metal finishers and authentic wood add to the luxurious feel inside the cabin. The 7-seater SUV is equipped with Land Rover’s unique Intelligent Seat Fold function. This system allows the owners to reconfigure the second and third-row seats by using switches inside the tailgate, the C-pillar or the infotainment touchscreen. Owners can also do the same remotely using their smartphone.
The new Land Rover Discovery is equipped with the InControl Touch on S and SE models while the HSE and HSE Luxury models get the 10-inch InControl Touch Pro system. Land Rover has also partnered with Meridian and developed two advanced systems. The 380 W version has 10 speakers while the 825 W Surround Sound system has 14 speakers and a Dual-Channel subwoofer. Customers can also opt for the optional electronic panoramic sunroof.
