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 reimagining 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 reimagining 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, creates an air of modernity.
The optional sliding electric or fixed panoramic roof enhances the sense of space in the vehicle’s interior and floods it with natural light, including the available third-row seats. 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.
Seven full-size seats truly exemplify comfort and versatility. With optional Intelligent Seat Fold, this allows you to configure the second- and third-row seating using cargo space switches or on the main touchscreen. You can remotely configure the seats when you’re not actually in one, via the InControl® Remote™ smartphone app. The Remote Intelligent Seat Fold Pack allows you to do so away from the vehicle.
Head-Up Display is an option on the HSE and HSE Luxury that presents key vehicle data such as vehicle speed, gear selection and navigation directions on the windshield.
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 owner's manual, ensuring you always have the answer to any question at hand.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
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 37.6 inches, while in the optional third row, a plentiful 34.1 inches are provided. There’s ample room for up to seven adults to travel in comfort.
From the upper and lower glove box on the SE, HSE and HSE Luxury to the central armrest storage — with an optional cooler compartment and space for two iPad® devices, two one liter bottles or five iPad minis — you’ll find space in places you simply wouldn’t expect.
The Discovery is packed with charging points, which are available for all three rows of seats. So no matter where they sit, every passenger can stay entertained — whether on their tablets, mobile phones or other devices.
To ensure that the interior is maintained at your perfect temperature, the Discovery features a highly efficient climate control system. The optional four-zone automatic system ensures everyone in the cabin can adjust the temperature in their individual space for greater comfort.
HILL DESCENT CONTROL (HDC®)
By helping to maintain a constant speed and applying braking separately to each wheel, Hill Descent Control (HDC) is designed to assist the driver when 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.1
1,000 LBS LIGHTER
With a state-of-the-art aluminum unibody, the Discovery enjoys greater levels of performance, together with improved strength and sustainability. At up to 1,000 lbs lighter than the LR4 and utilizing the latest in materials and build technologies, the vehicle can readily take the heavy duty usage associated with off-road driving.
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.
The 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 reused.

CHILD SEAT LATCH
The availability of up to five LATCH Tether Anchor points makes it easy to install child seats. They also ensure a strong connection between the child seat and the vehicle.
A comprehensive system of up to eight driver and passenger airbags provides excellent protection for all vehicle occupants.
COMMAND DRIVING POSITION
The Command Driving Position helps deliver a more confident, engaged feeling. The elevated position gives you unrivaled views.
The Discovery uses the latest safety and driver assistance technologies including Electronic Traction Control (ETC) which helps optimize traction and Electronic Brake-force Distribution which automatically varies the braking force to each axle in order to help 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 Braking System (ABS) pump to ensure full brake force is applied.
