The all-new Discovery comes equipped with Jaguar Land Rover’s efficient 3.0L supercharged engine. This engine, which is capable of producing 340 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque, is mated to a smooth ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.

Exterior-wise, the all-new Discovery retains key design cues, but it adds optimized proportions and sophisticated surfaces that enhance the modernity of the well-knonw SUV. The body is made of lightweight materials and aluminium construction to save weight without losing power. The Discovery also has best-in-class 3,500kg towing capacity and a semi-autonomous Advanced Tow Assist feature.

Inside, the vehicle comes with a flexible interior that provides seven seats for full-size adults. Passengers can enjoy a premium cabin that combines leading design with high-quality materials and extremely generous space. A large host of features is available, including semi-autonomous safety technology, six 12-volt charging points, and up to 9 USB ports.

The 2017 Land Rover Discovery is available at showrooms across the UAE with a starting price of AED 250,900 and with five years / 65,000 Kilometers service contact and five years / 150,000 Kilometers warranty.
