The versatility of the cabin is highlighted by the easily configurable available seven-seat layout and plentiful storage, with thoughtful use of space and refined comfort. Optional Intelligent Seat Fold allows you to configure the second and optional third row seating using switches located in the cargo area, on the main touchscreen or even remotely via your smartphone.
The very latest Land Rover vehicle and infotainment technologies have been incorporated to deliver high levels of capability, connectivity and information. From the choice of Meridian™ audio systems to innovations such as Land Rover InControl® Touch Pro™, and a suite of ingenious driving, parking and towing aids, there’s a world at your fingertips.
The All-New Discovery feels at home in the city, and also drives impeccably off-road. It takes towing capability to a new level, with a capacity of up to 8201 lbs and a suite of features available to help make towing effortless and assured. Optimized suspension geometry coupled with unique Land Rover technologies ensures it delivers the ultimate all-terrain capability.
You can also fold each of the rear seats down individually, while the second row of seats can slide forward and back, too.
In the Discovery’s rivals, the third row of seats is generally only really suitable for small children, however Land Rover insists this car has enough room for adults to sit comfortably, while four of the five rear seats come with ISOFIX child-seat mounting points.
Technology & equipment
When it goes on sale next year, the new Land Rover Discovery will be available in four trim levels – S, SE, HSE and HSE Luxury. Starting at £43,495, the entry-level S comes with air-conditioning, 19-inch alloy wheels, an automatic gearbox, air-suspension, seven seats, a powered tailgate, cruise control, DAB radio and 60:40 split-folding rear seats.
The S also gets the InControl Touch infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen. It includes features such as Bluetooth and USB connectivity. Go for one of these models and you also get InControl Protect, a system that allows you to check things like the car’s fuel level and location, as well as record your journeys and check you haven’t left a window open.
It does all this through the InControl Remote smartphone app, while it can also transmit your location and diagnostic information to a breakdown recovery company if needed. Should something more serious such as a collision happen, however, the system can also alert the emergency services to your location.
Move up to £49,495 SE trim and there are LED headlamps, power-folding mirrors, front foglights, power-adjustable heated front seats, leather upholstery and ambient interior lighting. You also get ISOFIX points on the front passenger seat, as well as automatic headlights, an uprated stereo, SD-card based sat nav and front and rear parking sensors.
Next up is HSE, which starts at £56,995. This gets 20-inch alloy wheels, upgraded rear lights, Windsor leather upholstery, 16-way adjustable front seats with a memory function, a fixed panoramic sunroof, heated rear seats and a system that allows you to open the tailgate by waving your foot under the bumper.
There’s also the upgraded InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, a 360-watt Meridian stereo and a hard-drive-based satellite-navigation system. The HSE features keyless entry, a driver fatigue monitor, a reversing camera, blind-spot monitoring and InControl Pro Services, too.
The top-of-the-range HSE Luxury model starts at £62,695 and comes with 21-inch alloy wheels, even more leather, winged headrests and an opening sunroof as standard. The front seats can be cooled as well as heated, while you also get thicker carpets, a heated steering wheel, configurable ‘mood lighting’, the intelligent seat-folding system and four-zone climate control as standard. These cars also get an 825-watt Meridian sound system, rear seat entertainment screens, a surround camera and the upgraded Terrain Response 2 suite of off-road driving aids.
