LAND ROVER DISCOVERY

INTRODUCTION

The Land Rover Discovery 2017, the much- awaited SUV, has finally hit the Indian shores. The new design of the Discovery is not as tough and rugged as the old Discovery, but feels really futuristic with that box look being given new curvy edges, sharp looks and a blocky back. The new LED headlamps give it the look of a Range Rover. This new 7- seater Land Rover Discovery gets a completely new aluminum monocoque frame, making it lighter and hence making it more efficient. The SUV still drives like a Discovery, not like a Range Rover or Range Rover sport in any way; it’s all smooth and easy to go with minimal engine noise getting inside the cabin.

 

 

EXTERIOR

EXTERIOR

The new Land Rover Discovery exterior, as mentioned before has a new futuristic look to it and as soon as you look at closely you get know that it’s a proper upgrade to the outgoing Discovery.

The new LED headlamps look really futuristic and Range Rover like although it carries that sleek look with a blockydesigned back with new LED tail lamps. The glass roof adds to the attitude in its looks with new 19- and 20-inch alloy wheels. The size of the wheels depends on which variant one goes for.

INTERIOR

INTERIOR

The Land Rover Discovery interiors make you feel bright and airy, and the materials used are probably best in class. There is a lot to like about the interiors of this car as it comes with plenty of cool features, like there are plenty of storage spaces with large door bins that easily fit in a normal 1.5 L bottle. The central space is quite deep and can be refrigerated if one goes for the upper variants.


There are five Land Rover Discovery variants: S, SE, HSE, HSE Luxury and First Edition, where S is the most basic one, and HSE Luxury and First Edition are the top ones. A lot of features may differ depending on the variant. Land Rover Discovery colours are available in Solid, Metallic and Premium Metallic colours, with a total of 17 colour options and an option to have black alloys. Also, not to miss is the 14- speaker Meridian surround sound system, which is available inthe HSE and the First Edition variants.

ENGINE & PERFORMANCE

ENGINE & PERFORMANCE

The Land Rover Discovery price in India starts from Rs. 68.05 (Ex-showroom, New Delhi) and goes up to more than Rs. 1 Crore if you go for the top-end variant. The new Discovery comes with 2 engine options: 3.0 L turbocharged diesel and 3.0 L supercharged petrol both mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and being 6- cylinder engines. The Land Rover Discovery specifications for the engine are, 190 bhp of power and 600 nm of torque for the diesel engine, while the petrol engine is sportier, producing 250 bhp of power and 450 Nm of torque. You also get the terrain response with lower gear ratios.

The new Land Rover Discovery mileage has gone up due to the loss of weight. The earlier Discovery used to give around 11 kmpl of mileage, while the new one gives around 13 kmpl, which is not bad at as this kind of efficiency and does justice to the Land Rover Discovery price.

The Land Rover Discovery reviews give a good grade to the performance and handling of the car. The engine is responsive and doesn’t disappoint you when the gas pedal is grounded. The diesel version goes from 0-100 kmph in 8.1 seconds with a top speed 208 kmph and the petrol version hits the 100 kmph mark a second faster than the diesel one, with a top speed being 7 kmph faster than that of the diesel one. Also, the handling has been improved because of the weight loss; it’s not that sharp atin the corners like Audi Q7 but good enough for an SUV of this size. Also, Land Rover reckons that this Discovery goes further off-road than any other car that they’ve made before, with water wading capacity of 900 mm, Terrain Response 2 (not present in the S variant) and off-road system that can take it to places.

 

BRAKING AND SAFETY

BRAKING AND SAFETY

The Land Rover Discovery features really good brakes with one of the best braking systems that allows safe and sound sudden halts, also housing a lot of safety features, like Electronic air suspension Stop/Start technology, Hill Descent Control (HDC) Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS), Electronic Traction Control (ETC), Hill Start Assist, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Roll Stability Control (RSC), Electric Parking Brake (EPB), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA ), Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD), Gradient Acceleration Control (GAC), front side impact airbags, side curtain airbags and a trip computer. All these features are not available in the basic variants. These safety features are enough to keep you and your family safe and sound.

CONCLUSION

CONCLUSION

The Land Rover Discovery is a very practical car being the most capable amongst its competitors which are the Audi Q7, Volvo XC90, Mercedes GLS and the BMW X5. It might not be the best in terms of performance among the competition but really gives you more value than the money spent on buying it. The features provided are also unique. Al though it looks smaller than the old Discovery, it is actually is quite similar in terms of size. The engines could have been more powered, but these 3.0 L petrol and diesel engines are really impressive. The Land Rover Discovery images can be seen on the Autoportal website, looking all glorious and ready to conquer terrains.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Land Rover Discovery

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

    Ex-Showroom ₹75,59,000
    The Land Rover Discovery isn’t the most luxurious full-size SUV and at Rs 1.30 crores for the top-spec diesel version, it’s not cheap either. However, if you value practicality and long-distance cruising you will appreciate its massive interior, flexible seating option and effortless performance.
