Land Rover Says No To Seven-Seat Range Rover

Land Rover Says No To Seven-Seat Range Rover

The prices of the new SUV have been announced as well and Land Rover will formally launch the new Discovery in the country on October 28, 2017. Customers can also book their Discovery online at Land Rover's dedicated website. An urban-centric exterior design, seats created to fit 7 adults comfortably, entertainment and comfort features to keep everyone happy, driver assists to help driving this (almost) 5-metre long behemoth easier, two engines to choose from and Land Rover's legendary off-road capability should help it achieve that goal. The SUV looses out on the boxy exteriors of the previous generation model and has opted for a more angular and curvy design philosophy. There are subtle character lines and sharper details along the chrome grille, LED headlamps, and the bumpers. Sure, there are five diesel variants on offer, but, surprisingly, there are five petrol trims to choose from as well - something which hasn't been seen in this segment before.

The Land Rover Discovery 5 measures 4,988 mm in length, 2,220 mm in width and 1,846 mm in height. The new Discovery gets a mix of black, beige and brown colored interior scheme. The seats can be remotely operated with the help of an exclusive Smartphone App which is part of the Land Rover's InControl touch pro services.

The all-new Discovery will be available for sale in India from November 2017. On the features front, the new SUV flaunts a 10-inch infotainment system with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The petrol powertrain is a 3.0-litre, supercharged unit developing 340PS of maximum power at 6,500rpm and 450Nm of peak torque between 3,500-5,000rpm. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
