The time has come for a substantial restyling of the Land Rover Discovery. “The new Discovery is a beautifully proportioned and refined premium SUV. This irresistible and versatile vehicle has been refined in every detail, enhancing its exterior character and cabin versatility. Discovery retains its position as the most capable full-size family SUV in the world,” says Gerry McGovern, Chief Creative Officer, Jaguar Land Rover Group.
All the Discovery DNA styling cues remain, such as the clamshell bonnet, raised roof and striking C-pillar, but the new model brings a bold evolution to the exterior. The car now offers a number of design enhancements that give it a more assertive presence, with body-coloured air intakes further accentuating the waistline. The new front grille echoes the Discovery Sport design, contributing to the family look. The bold honeycomb design is finished in Atlas colour, as is the Discovery lettering on the bonnet.
The revised front bumpers feature a new body-coloured graphic for a stronger, more dynamic appearance. At the rear, all Discovery models feature new LED light clusters, coupled with a Gloss Black panel across the vehicle. This reflects the reduced design philosophy by incorporating Discovery lettering in a crisp graphic pattern. Like the new headlamps, the LED rear light clusters make it instantly recognisable, while all versions feature a redesigned bumper.
Focused on versatility, the interior combines a seven-seat layout with modern cabin design incorporating Pivi Pro infotainment. “We’ve made the Discovery the most capable and connected seven-seater SUV. Superior quality and premium materials contribute to the appeal of this legendary model,” comments Alan Sheppard, Land Rover’s Head of Interior Design. The redesigned centre console houses the 11.4 inch touchscreen of the Pivi Pro, while the heating and ventilation system controls are operated from a hidden interface until illuminated. When the car is switched off, the surface appears completely black.
