Land Rover offers the SUV in six trims: S, SE, HSE, R-Dynamic S, R-Dynamic SE, and R-Dynamic HSE. The Discovery Metropolitan Edition is based on the top-spec R-Dynamic HSE trim.
Land Rover Discovery launched in India 2017.
The Land Rover Discovery is powered by a supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol mill churning out 335bhp at 6500rpm and 450Nm of torque between 3500-5000rpm. There’s also a 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine option which produces 254bhp at 3750rpm and 600Nm of torque from as low as 2000rpm. While the latter will be powering the TdV6 trim, the former will power the Si6 variant. The SUV comes loaded with Land Rover’s off-road hardware.
Exterior and Design
Land Rover Discovery is a 5 door car which has front Double Wishbone suspensions and rear Multi-Link suspensions with R19 Wheels.
The new Disco moves away from its characteristic rectangular motif and adopts a more stylish and curvy design language set up by the new Evoque. Land Rover’s honeycomb grille is now flanked by sleek and modern LED headlamps. The imposing front bumper retains the skid plates and the necessary air vents.
Interior and Features
The dashboard is dominated by an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which reduces the number of buttons compared to the older model. The standard features in the SUV include the InControl Touch Pro integrated into the infotainment system, a 14-speaker Meridian digital surround system and four 12V charging points amongst others. The main highlight here is the Intelligent Seat Fold function, which allows passengers to reconfigure the second- and the third-row seats using switches inside the tailgate, the C-pillar, the infotainment touchscreen or even remotely using a smartphone. The stepped up roof provides ample headroom for the middle and third-row passengers. The panoramic sunroof is also offered while the rest of the cabin remains very practical.
Land Rover Discovery colour options available in market are – Eiger Grey Metallic, Firenze Red, Fuji White, Portofino Blue Metallic, Santorini Black.
Land Rover Discovery is a 7 seater SUV.
Land Rover pitches the all new Discovery 5 against the likes of Mercedes GLS, BMW X5, Volvo XC90 and the Audi Q7.
