NEW LEVELS OF REFINEMENT
Form, function and exemplary levels of finesse are brought together to help create one of the most compelling Land Rover vehicles to date. The vehicle’s exterior design is a revolutionary re-imagining of the 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 dashboard design. The use of materials such as premium leather, authentic wood and metal finishes, coupled with focused craftsmanship and precision, create an air of modernity.
The standard fixed panoramic roof or optional sliding electric panoramic roof enhances the sense of space in the vehicle’s interior and floods it with natural light, including the third row of seats (when equipped). 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.
Sliding electric panoramic roof standard on HSE and HSE Luxury, optional on SE.
The Discovery has seven full-size seats that truly exemplify comfort, and versatility. The available Intelligent Seat Fold allows you to configure the second and third row seating using cargo area switches, on the main touchscreen or using the smartphone Remote app.

The available enhanced next-generation Head-Up Display presents key vehicle data including your speed, gear position and navigation directions, on the windshield. It features full-colour, high-resolution graphics, enabling you to see relevant information with ease.
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 ProTM and the optional Rear Seat Entertainment System, there’s a world at your fingertips.
The Discovery delivers strong performance from its advanced line-up of refined and fuel-efficient petrol and diesel engines.
ON ROAD PERFORMANCE
The Discovery has been designed to 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 and other features – such as Terrain Response® and available Terrain Response® 2 – ensure the Discovery is always ready to get out there and tackle whatever comes over the horizon.
^Please exercise caution due to unpredictability of water depth in most environments.
The 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, highway, road and even night-time driving situations with ease.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
Available seven full-seats across three rows, flexible seating and optional heating, cooling and massage functionality – however you configure the thoughtful use of space in the Discovery, you’ll always have room to relax.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
CLASS LEADING LEGROOM
Each and every passenger in the Discovery enjoys a truly comfortable ride, with a generous amount of legroom offered. Those in the second row will find they have 954 mm, while in the optional third row, a plentiful 851 mm is provided. There’s ample room for up to seven adults to travel in comfort.
From the upper and lower glove box to the central armrest storage – with an optional cooler compartment and space for two iPad® devices, 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, the 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.
The 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 CONTROLTM
By maintaining a constant speed and applying braking separately to each wheel, Hill Descent Control (HDCTM) 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 hitch 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.
Towing feature compatibility may be affected by trailers equipped with LED lights.
410 KG LIGHTER**
With a state-of-the-art aluminum unibody, the Discovery enjoys greater levels of performance, together with improved strength, sustainability and efficiency. At up to 410 kg lighter than its predecessor, and utilizing the latest in materials and build technologies, the vehicle can readily take the knocks associated with off-road driving.
**Based on a like for like 6-cylinder weight comparison.
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.
STRIVING FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Discovery incorporates sustainable design with intelligent material choices. The use of aluminum in the body structure allows a 9 percent±± reduction in CO2 emissions over its life cycle. Our closed-loop aluminum supply chain also ensures any surplus high-grade aluminum from our sheet stamping process is re-used.
±±JLR Data 2014/15
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.
The comprehensive system of up to eight driver and passenger airbags in the Discovery provides excellent protection for all the vehicle’s occupants.
COMMAND DRIVING POSITION
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.
The Discovery uses the latest safety technologies including Electronic Traction Control (ETC) which optimizes traction and Electronic Brake-force Distribution which automatically varies the braking force to each axle in order to minimize stopping distance.
EMERGENCY BRAKE ASSIST
Emergency Brake Assist understands when you apply the brakes quickly but without the necessary force to maximize stopping performance. It therefore boosts the brake pressure through the Anti-Lock Breaking System (ABS) pump to ensure you stop in time.
