The Land Rover Discovery is a mid-size luxury SUV, introduced since 1989. Built on a platform shared with the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, the current Discovery leaves behind many of the design traditions of former generations for a more modern, though less overtly practical, design.
In contrast to previous Discovery models, the third-generation has a much more rounded shape, eschewing the traditional angular design. The tail lights have changed from a vertical orientation to horizontal, and the third-row side glass no longer blends into the roof glass. The use of aluminium chassis and body panels gives a weight loss of up to 480 kg over its predecessor.
Four variants are offered with the Discovery presently:
- Discovery S
- Discovery SE
- Discovery HSE
- Discovery HSE Luxury
Two petrol and one diesel engine is available to choose from depending on the variant selected.
