JLR introduces the new Discovery

Jaguar Land Rover India on July 14 introduced new Discovery that “combines an exceptional design evolution with a versatile and intelligently packaged interior.” The prices of the new Land Rover Discovery start from Rs 88.06 lakh (ex-showroom), said a press release.

Featuring the latest generation of powerful and efficient six-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, advanced Pivi Pro infotainment and superior comfort and practicality, the new Discovery remains one of the most capable, connected and versatile full seven-seat premium SUVs in the world, it said further.

Mr Rohit Suri, President and Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India, said, “The new Discovery, while retaining Land Rover’s legendary breadth of capability, offers renewed levels of refinement, luxury and efficiency which make it the best full-size SUV for the outdoors and adventure-filled journeys with the family”.

According to the release, the distinct character and optimised proportions of the new Discovery embrace more than three decades of design evolution. Discovery DNA design cues – including the clamshell bonnet, the stepped roof and the highly visible C-pillar – remain, but new Discovery delivers a bold exterior evolution optimised to project a more confident road presence.

Inside, the new Discovery benefits from enhancements designed to highlight the premium position and craftsmanship of its full-size seven-seat layout, with a spacious cabin incorporating Land Rover’s cutting edge Pivi Pro infotainment.

Passenger comfort is supported by Cabin Air Ionisation, now available with PM2.5 air filtration technology. It actively scans incoming air, measuring its quality and automatically uses advanced filters to reduce the level of allergens, toxins and harmful particulates in the cabin, enhancing driver wellbeing.

The Intelligent Seat Fold technology allows customers to effortlessly configure the seating layout using the central touchscreen, while Remote app technology lets customers keep tabs on the fuel status and location of their vehicle and even unlock and lock the doors.

In the back, the second-row seats have been carefully redesigned for enhanced comfort. Improved lateral support, longer thicker cushions and careful seat profiling all contribute to greater under-thigh support and improved posture for occupants.

The new Discovery introduces new straight-six Ingenium engines, both petrol and diesel, with enhanced efficiency, performance and smoothness, said the release.
