The Land Rover Discovery is ingeniously versatile with more comfort, luxury and technology than ever before. It retains and even builds upon its best in class capability, yet also features an advanced infotainment system that will keep you and your passengers relaxed, connected and entertained at all times.
Here are 10 reasons you’ll want to get behind the wheel of Discovery this weekend.
1. ROOM FOR EXTRA PASSENGERS
Whether it’s friends, family, or everything that comes with them, Discovery has the room required to meet your needs. With space for up to seven adults and stadium seating, your passengers will feel at ease knowing every seat is a good seat.
Five-a-side football matches, family holidays and long awaited nights out are much easier when you aren’t limited to four passengers.

2. SPACIOUS DESIGN
Discovery benefits from more storage for front seat passengers compared to the previous generation Discovery. Flexible storage options throughout the vehicle include an upper and lower glove box on SE, HSE and HSE Luxury models, a central armrest stowage with space for two iPads or four iPad minis and extra deep console storage up front. The distinctive stepped roof of the vehicle gives the Discovery an assertive, recognisable stance and allows for greater freedom of movement.
The armrest’s optional chiller compartment also has enough space for two one-litre bottles. Whatever the weather, you and your passengers can stay relaxed and hydrated throughout your journey.
3. ADJUST YOUR VEHICLE WITH EASE
If you need to transport large items such as luggage or bikes, you can opt to include the Remote Intelligent Seat Fold feature in some models and effortlessly create the space you need. At the touch of a button the Intelligent Seat Fold system allows you to configure the second and third row seating from the trunk switch, touchscreen or C pillar.
To make your journey even more seamless, you also have the option of remotely configuring the seats of your Discovery, as well as its temperature, from afar via the InControl Remote Premium smartphone app. Prepare your vehicle for transportation without even leaving the house.

4. STAY CONNECTED AND ENTERTAINED
We’ve equipped the Land Rover Discovery with the very latest infotainment technologies to offer you the highest levels of entertainment, information and connectivity. The optional Meridian Surround Sound System delivers music and audio through 14 speakers plus subwoofer, and there are up to nine USB ports and four 12V charging points.
The optional InControl Touch Pro system’s infotainment screen is now 10 inches. You can link this to your smartphone apps and use them on the main display. As some models also feature a 4G WiFi hotspot for up to eight devices, you and your passengers need never worry about connectivity again.

5. DESIGNED FOR YOUR COMFORT
There truly is no bad seat inside the Discovery. We’ve re-imagined the classic Land Rover Discovery design elements and used luxury materials such as premium Windsor leather, authentic wood and metal finishers to create a calm, composed atmosphere throughout the vehicle.
This vehicle is the first in the market to feature the option of a heated third row and its stadium seating provides improved visibility for all passengers.

6. IT’S MULTI-FUNCTIONAL
Discovery’s powered inner tailgate is multi-purpose. You can sit on the inner tailgate with the main tailgate providing a large canopy, or you can use it to hold your luggage in place. Adventures in the countryside are that much more comfortable with a clean seat and break from the elements, so you can take in great views for even longer.

7. A CHOICE OF IMPRESSIVE ENGINES
With the Discovery, you have an impressive choice of diesel and petrol engines, each one delivering effortless responsive performance, reduced emissions and improved fuel efficiency. At 19MY, the range includes the new 3.0L Sd6 Diesel engine, offering an impressive 700Nm of torque and 306HP for maximum power delivery. Discovery retains a petrol offering, with the option of our 2.0L Si4 Ingenium petrol engine.
8. MORE CAPABLE THAN EVER
This vehicle has all the capability you’d expect from a Land Rover Discovery and more. On-road and off-road adventures are fully catered for with air suspension, improved ground clearance and class-leading wheel articulation. The optional Terrain Response 2 system monitors surface conditions and automatically selects the driving mode you need for the best possible chassis and powertrain set up.
Whatever the driving conditions, you can relax and rest assured in the knowledge that your vehicle is optimally configured to deliver world class capability on any terrain.

9. INCREASED WADE DEPTH
With a wading depth of 900mm, a 200mm improvement from the previous model, the vehicle also features optional Wade Sensing technology. Sensors in the door mirrors inform you how far water levels are from the 900mm maximum wading depth, so you can feel composed and confident on waterlogged land.
The control system offers real-time images of the maximum wading capability, so you are fully informed and equipped for any water on your path. Whether it’s an off-road excursion or an unexpected flood, with the Discovery you’re always well-prepared.

10. BEST IN CLASS TOWING CAPABILITY
The Discovery retains its towing capacity of 3,500kg* and benefits from a suite of features that make towing even easier. Advanced Tow Assist** allows you to control the direction of your trailer and your vehicle as you reverse using the rotary dial for Terrain Response. Hitch and tow assist, the electrically deployable towbar and nose load measurements mean towing becomes another thing you can do with ease in the Discovery.
