November 2016

The New Discovery embodies Land Rover’s drive to go Above and Beyond, combining British desirability with an unstoppable spirit of adventure.
It’s an authentic, three-row, seven-seat SUV with unbeatable capability and versatility. Everyday ingenuity has been at the heart of the Discovery, attracting more than 1.2 million customers over the last 27 years.

The fifth-generation model benefits from Land Rover’s strong, safe and light full-size SUV architecture, delivering comfort and adaptability like no other.

Jaguar Land Rover UK managing director, Jeremy Hicks said: “Demand for Discovery has always been strong in our home market; the New Discovery will build on this, offering customers the most complete all-round SUV package available anywhere today. The new vehicle takes absolutely everything that is great about Discovery from its design, its versatility, its go anywhere, do anything credentials and builds on them to make it better in every way.

“Our retailers have been really excited to start talking about it; customer interest has exceeded all expectations already with a strong mix of new customers interested in the brand. With the addition of the Ingenium 2.0 litre engine, we are also looking forward to talking to more fleet and business users across the country.”

The New Discovery is for the digital age. Ingenious technology keeps families safe, connected and confident on all surfaces, all terrains and in all weathers to ensure every destination is reached.

Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s chief design officer said: “The New Discovery redefines the large SUV. Land Rover’s design and engineering teams have revolutionised the Discovery DNA to create a highly desirable, extremely versatile and hugely capable premium SUV. We truly believe the result is a radical departure in design that will introduce the Discovery Family to a new, wider customer base.”

New Discovery is powered by Jaguar Land Rover’s efficient range of four and six cylinder petrol and diesel engines, all paired with a smooth and responsive ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox. They include:

• The award-winning twin-turbo Sd4 Ingenium four-cylinder diesel, which produces 240PS with an impressive 500Nm of torque and fuel economy of 43.5mpg and CO2 emissions of 171g/km.
• Six-cylinder diesel power comes from the 258PS Td6, which delivers 600Nm of torque for strong performance, pulling power and efficiency.
• For petrol customers, Land Rover’s advanced 340PS supercharged petrol 3.0-litre V6, the Si6, provides 450Nm of torque to deliver relaxed performance and capability.
