New Land Rover Discovery combines a radical new exterior design with a highly versatile seven-seat interior. The result is a revolutionary family SUV that brings new levels of sophistication, desirability and capability to the Discovery family.
New Land Rover Discovery looks very different but is still unmistakably a Discovery. Sophisticated surfaces and optimised proportions combine with beautiful detailing and enhanced precision to create a highly capable and versatile SUV with a more dynamic design than ever before.
At the front, New Discovery’s sculpted surfaces, jewel-like headlamps and a faster windscreen angle break with Discovery tradition and the state-of-the-art daytime running lamps deliver a modern appearance with a distinctive new light signature.
In profile, the bodysides highlight the optimised volumes and proportions of New Discovery, while the wheelarch graphic echoes Discovery Sport with its distinctive castellations visually ‘locking’ the wheelarches to the vehicle body. The new form language features pronounced, yet smoothly contoured wheelarches, giving New Discovery a planted, more dynamic appearance.
The streamlined design ensures New Discovery is the most aerodynamic Discovery yet, with a drag coefficient from 0.33 contributing to improved efficiency and refinement.
At the back, the LED rear lamps have a horizontal emphasis, giving New Discovery a more sporty appearance, while the new one-piece tailgate delivers a more dynamic rear design that would not have been possible with the previous split arrangement. Its rounded profile integrates seamlessly with the body sides and provides numerous practical benefits.
A larger opening makes loading and unloading luggage easier than before and the larger tailgate provides improved shelter from the elements when raised. A carefully shaped rear spoiler has also been honed in the wind tunnel and plays a significant role in minimising dirt accumulating on the tailgate, optimising rear visibility without compromising aerodynamic performance.
