There are four audio systems from which to choose. The Land Rover System features 6 speakers while the enhanced version of this set up has 10. We’ve also partnered with MeridianTM, to develop two advanced systems for the 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.
8-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
All gas and diesel engines in the 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.
ON ROAD PERFORMANCE
The 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, while 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 the Discovery delivers a connected, balanced and sure-footed drive. One that you will relish both on and off-road.
Primarily constructed from lightweight aluminum 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.
The Discovery enjoys greater efficiencies thanks to such innovations as Intelligent Stop/Start technology, 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 2 km/h and 30 km/h, helping to maintain full concentration on steering and finding a path through obstacles.
With a class-leading wading depth of up to 900 mm, 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.
^Please exercise caution due to unpredictability of water depth in most environments.
TERRAIN RESPONSE® 2
Our unique Terrain Response® systems enable the driver to optimize the vehicle’s engine, transmission, 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 individual driving mode for specific conditions.
**Optional when electronic air suspension is specified.
TWIN-SPEED TRANSFER BOX
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 box is the electronic centre differential that offers a 50:50 torque split between front and rear axles with the ability to emptively lock the axles before slip commences.
Standard on HSE Luxury.
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 the Discovery stable no matter how rough the terrain. For unprecedented ride quality, it switches heights seamlessly when necessary.
Standard on HSE Luxury.
With a towing capacity of up to 3,720 kg, the Discovery’s capabilities are significantly higher than others. Available features include an electrically deployable tow bar, hitch and Advance Tow Assist and a nose load measurement system that helps take towing to a new level.
Towing feature compatibility may be affected by trailers equipped with LED lights.
LANE KEEP ASSIST WITH DRIVER CONDITION MONITOR
Available Lane Keep Assist detects when your vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of your lane, and gently steers you back. Driver Condition Monitor detects if you’re starting to feel drowsy and gives you an early warning when you need to take a break.
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL WITH QUEUE ASSIST
When you’re cruising on the highway or travelling in slow-moving traffic, this optional 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 the Discovery.
AUTONOMOUS EMERGENCY BRAKING
If a potential collision is detected between speeds of 5 km/h and 80 km/h, the standard Autonomous Emergency Braking system displays a forward collision warning, giving you time to take action. If a collision is still anticipated and you have taken no action, the system will apply the brakes to help reduce the severity of the possible impact.
BLIND SPOT ASSIST WITH REVERSE TRAFFIC DETECTION
If your vehicle detects another car in your blind spot when you begin to change lanes, optional 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 optional 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.
Requires 360 Parking Aid.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
Activity Key is an optional feature that makes living life to the fullest more convenient. You can wear the Activity Key and use it to lock or unlock your Land Rover vehicle if you prefer not to carry a key fob. The wristband is robust and fully waterproof, allowing you to enjoy a range of activities.
INTELLIGENT SEAT FOLD
The Discovery features available third row seats with Intelligent Seat Fold, which allows you to configure the second and third row seating using switches in the cargo area, on the main touchscreen or via your smartphone with our Remote app.
Third-row seats and Intelligent Seat Fold standard on HSE Luxury, optional on HSE.
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.
**Standard on HSE and HSE Luxury, optional on SE.
