NEW LEVELS OF REFINEMENT
Form, function and exemplary levels of finesse are brought together to help create one of Land Rover’s most compelling vehicles to date. The vehicle’s exterior design is a revolutionary re-imagining of Discovery for the next generation and introduces a new level of refinement as demonstrated by its beautifully crafted and sculpted surfaces.
PREMIUM CRAFTED DETAILS
The highly desirable interior is a re-imagining of the classic Discovery design elements with the striking use of strong horizontal and vertical lines connecting through the main facia beam. The use of materials such as premium leather, authentic wood and metal finishers, coupled with focused craftsmanship and precision create an air of cultured modern living.
The optional sliding electric* panoramic or fixed panoramic roof enhances the sense of space in the vehicle’s interior and floods it with natural light, including the third row of seats. Importantly, the toughened glass has a dark tint to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the cabin. Powered interior blinds are also provided for additional privacy or shade.
*Standard on HSE Luxury
Discovery's seven full-size seats truly exemplify comfort and versatility. With optional Intelligent Seat Fold this allows you to configure the second and third row seating using cargo space switches or on the main Touchscreen. You can remotely configure the seats when you’re not actually in it, via the InControl Remote smartphone app. The Remote Intelligent Seat Fold Pack allows you to do so away from the vehicle.
The enhanced next-generation Head-up Display** presents key vehicle data including your speed, gear position and navigation directions, on the windscreen. It features full-colour, high-resolution graphics, enabling you to see relevant information with ease.
**Requires infrared reflective windscreen in some markets.
LAND ROVER iGUIDE
The Land Rover iGuide app uses the latest augmented reality technology to explain all the need-to-know features and controls of your Discovery. It also doubles as a mobile owners’ manual, ensuring you always have the answer to any question to hand.
The very latest infotainment technologies have been incorporated to deliver the highest levels of entertainment, connectivity and information. From the choice of Meridian™ sound systems to innovations such as Touch Pro and the optional Rear Seat Entertainment System, there’s a world at your fingertips.
Discovery delivers strong performance from its advanced line-up of refined and fuel-efficient petrol and diesel engines.
Discovery has been designed to a deliver a confident, comfortable and engaging driving experience to make the kilometres go by virtually unnoticed. Dynamic Stability Control and Electronic Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) ensure on-road capabilities and ride quality are enhanced.
The vehicle’s all-terrain capability, wading ability with optional Wade Sensing, and other features such as Terrain Response 2, ensure Discovery is always ready to get out there and tackle whatever comes over the horizon.
Discovery has a wealth of optional driving aids on hand to improve safety for you and your passengers. Featuring the most innovative thinking, engineering and vehicle technologies, these features will help you manage most traffic, motorway, road and even night-time driving situations with ease.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
With seven full seats across three rows, flexible seating and optional heating, cooling and massage functionality – however you configure the clever use of space in Discovery, you’ll always have room to relax.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
CLASS LEADING LEGROOM
Each and every passenger in Discovery enjoys a truly comfortable ride, with a generous amount of legroom offered. Those in the second row will find they have 954mm, whilst in the optional third row, a plentiful 851mm is provided. There’s ample room for up to seven adults to travel in comfort.
CABIN AIR IONISATION
Cabin air ionisation can improve the air quality within the vehicle cabin, reduce allergens, viruses, airborne bacteria and odours. It can do so by ionising particles in the air, making them attract to surfaces and thus help cleanse the air.
From the upper and lower glove box on SE, HSE and HSE Luxury, to central armrest stowage with an optional chiller compartment and space for two iPads†, two one litre bottles or five iPad† minis – you’ll find space in places you simply wouldn’t expect.
To ensure that the interior is maintained at your perfect temperature, Discovery features a highly efficient climate control system. Optional on all models, the four-zone automatic system ensures everyone in the cabin can adjust the temperature in their individual space for greater comfort.
Discovery is packed with charging points which are available for all three rows of seats. So no matter where they sit, every single passenger can stay entertained; whether on their tablets, mobile phones or other devices.

HILL DESCENT CONTROL
By maintaining a constant speed and applying braking separately to each wheel, Hill Descent Control (HDC) takes all the strain out of negotiating those difficult slopes.
ADVANCED TOW ASSIST
Optional Advanced Tow Assist†† allows you to control the direction of your trailer and your vehicle when reversing by using the rotary Terrain Response 2 controller. When a tow bar is fitted the system will then control the vehicle's steering to achieve the desired trailer trajectory, which is displayed with the current trajectory on the infotainment Touchscreen.
With a state-of-the-art aluminium monocoque body, Discovery enjoys greater levels of performance, together with improved strength, sustainability and efficiency. At up to 480kg lighter than its predecessor±, and utilising the latest in materials and build technologies, the vehicle can readily take the knocks associated with off-road driving.
All engines are paired with the advanced electronically controlled ZF 8-speed Automatic Transmission. Tuned by Land Rover engineers to combine silky-smooth shifting with exceptionally rapid response – gear changes are almost imperceptible, with each shift completed in just 200 milliseconds.
Discovery incorporates sustainable design with intelligent material choices. The use of aluminium in the body structure allows a 9 percent±± reduction in CO2 emissions over its life cycle. Our closed-loop aluminium supply chain also ensures any surplus high-grade aluminium from our sheet stamping process is re-used.

5* EURO NCAP RATING
Discovery has been awarded the maximum five star safety rating from Euro NCAP – the European New Car Assessment Programme which ensures cars are safer. In all variants, including seven seat models, all seating positions are assessed to ensure a high standard of occupant protection.
The availability of up to 5 ISOFIX points makes it easy to install child seats. They also ensure a strong connection between the child seat and the vehicle for improved safety.
Discovery’s comprehensive system of up to eight driver and passenger airbags provides excellent protection for all the vehicle’s occupants.
COMMAND DRIVING POSITION
Discovery’s Command Driving Position helps deliver a more confident, engaged drive. The elevated position gives you unrivalled views, adding to the feeling of safety and security.
Discovery uses the latest safety technologies including Electronic Traction Control (ETC) which optimises traction and Electronic Brake-force Distribution which automatically varies the braking force to each axle in order to minimise stopping distance.
EMERGENCY BRAKE ASSIST
Emergency Brake Assist understands when you apply the brakes quickly but without the necessary force to maximise stopping performance. It therefore boosts the brake pressure through the Anti-Lock Breaking System (ABS) pump to ensure you stop in time.
