There are four audio systems from which to choose. The Land Rover System features 6 speakers whilst the enhanced version of this set up has 10. We’ve also partnered with Meridian™, to develop two advanced systems for Discovery. The 380W version has 10 speakers and a dual channel subwoofer and the 825W Surround Sound System has 14 speakers and a dual-channel subwoofer.
MERIDIAN™ SOUND SYSTEM
Great definition, crystal clear highs and full, deep bass – delivered through the careful arrangement of 10 speakers and a dual channel subwoofer.
MERIDIAN™ SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM
All the fullness and clarity of a live performance delivered through an arrangement of 14 front, side and rear speakers and a dual channel subwoofer – seamlessly brought together using Trifield™ technology. Exclusive to Meridian, Trifield perfectly blends the centre and surround channels with left and right channels ensuring an optimum, consistent sound experience for each passenger.
Ingenium is our breed of engine designed for effortless performance, refinement and efficiency and includes the new Si4 221kW Ingenium Petrol engine.
8-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
All petrol and diesel engines in Discovery are paired with the advanced electronically controlled ZF 8-speed Automatic Transmission, which has been tuned by Land Rover engineers to combine smooth shifting with exceptionally rapid response. With eight closely spaced ratios, gear changes are almost imperceptible.
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.
Discovery has been designed to a deliver a confident, comfortable and engaging driving experience to make the miles go by virtually unnoticed. The sublime ride quality is heightened further by Electronic Power Assisted Steering, whilst Corner Brake Control helps to maintain stability when braking on corners by modulating the driver's generated brake pressure.
DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL
Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) monitors the vehicle’s dynamic behaviour and intervenes if it determines the vehicle is not responding to the driver’s inputs. It helps ensure Discovery delivers a connected, balanced and sure-footed drive. One that you will relish both on and off-road.
Primarily constructed from lightweight aluminium components, the suspension concept is fully independent, with a wide-spaced double wishbone design at the front and an advanced multi-link layout at the rear.
Discovery enjoys greater efficiencies thanks to such innovations as intelligent Stop/Start technology, the advent of our Ingenium engine, use of lightweight materials and improved aerodynamics. Vehicles equipped with electronic air suspension also benefit from speed lowering where the vehicle automatically lowers to reduce drag when cruising.
ALL TERRAIN PROGRESS CONTROL
All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) is a state-of-the-art optional system that enables drivers to set and maintain a steady speed in challenging conditions. Operating like a cruise control system, it functions between 2kph and 30kph, helping to maintain full concentration on steering and finding a path through obstacles.
With a class-leading wading depth of up to 900mm, the optional Wade Sensing feature can prove invaluable. Unique to Land Rover, sensors located in the door mirrors give the driver pictorial real-time information about the water’s depth in relation to the vehicle, as well as maximum wading capability via the Touchscreen.
TERRAIN RESPONSE 2
Our unique Terrain Response systems enable the driver to optimise the vehicle’s engine, gearbox, centre differential and chassis systems to match the demands of the terrain, by selecting one of the easily identifiable driving modes. The optional Terrain Response 2** system enhances this by monitoring driving conditions and automatically selecting the correct driving mode for specific conditions.
TWIN-SPEED TRANSFER GEARBOX
With additional set of lower gears, this system gives you precise speed and control in the most demanding of instances. The heart of the twin-speed transfer gearbox is the electronic centre differential that offers a 50:50 torque split between front and rear axles with the ability to pre-emptively lock the axles before slip commences.†
ELECTRONIC AIR SUSPENSION
A competent, composed drive is completed by the latest four-corner electronic air suspension system which provides exceptional wheel articulation and poise. Capable of taking on tough situations, this system keeps Discovery stable no matter how rough the terrain. For unprecedented ride quality, it switches heights seamlessly when necessary.
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL WITH QUEUE ASSIST
When you’re cruising on the motorway or travelling in slow-moving traffic, this system will keep your vehicle a safe distance from the one in front should it slow or stop, without the need to use the pedals. When the vehicle speeds up again so does Discovery.
BLIND SPOT ASSIST WITH REVERSE TRAFFIC DETECTION
If your vehicle detects another car in your blind spot when you begin to change lanes, Blind Spot Assist applies an appropriate amount of steering torque that helps to prevent the driver from steering into the approaching vehicle. Using the same technology, Reverse Traffic Detection warns you of vehicles, pedestrians or other hazards approaching from either side of your vehicle while reversing.
PARK ASSIST – PARALLEL PARK, PARKING EXIT AND PERPENDICULAR PARK
This system makes parallel and perpendicular parking easier than ever by steering your vehicle into a suitable space. Just select the appropriate gear and control the vehicle’s speed, brake and accelerator pedals. Park Assist will also steer you out of a space, taking all of the stress out of parking through on-screen guidance.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
An optional extra for SE, HSE and HSE Luxury models, the Activity Key makes living life to the full even easier. For extra convenience, you can wear the Activity Key and use it to lock or unlock your Land Rover if you prefer not to carry a key fob. The wristband is robust and fully waterproof, allowing you to enjoy a range of activities.
You can look forward to a comfortable driving experience all year round with the option of heated seats across all three rows and heated and cooled front and second row seats. Dependent on your model selection, both the driver and passenger can set their preferred temperature independently via the Touchscreen.
POWERED GESTURE TAILGATE
Powered gesture tailgate± allows you to operate the tailgate ‘hands-free’ outside the vehicle without needing to physically touch your vehicle or the smart key. When the smart key is detected, the feature can be operated by a kicking gesture underneath the vehicle using sensors located on either side of the tailgate. A powered inner tailgate is also available, which acts as a seating or loading platform, or an upright luggage retainer.
