Reinvented Land Rover Discovery will undergo weightloss

Reinvented Land Rover Discovery will undergo weightloss


The Land Rover Discovery has always had a recurring design philosophy since its introduction in 1989. The Discovery has been known to be biased to the boxy-rugged design language. But now, Land Rover has decided to modernise the design, as well as the technology under a sleeker body.

The Discovery will be largely inspired by the Discovery Vision Concept they had previewed last year. It will have a lower and sleeker design as compared to the current generation model. It will also get slimmer headlight and taillight clusters, similar to the ones on the new Range Rovers. The interior will be revamped completely with higher quality materials and will be feature packed.

It will also lose its heavy ladder-frame chassis and adopt the aluminium monocoque frame, similar to the one in the Range Rover Sport. This means it will be significantly lighter than the current 2622kg model. And, it will be built at Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull plant.

Despite the modern design, Land Rover has said that it will still retain its seven seats. And the Discovery will not lose its off-road abilities it’s known for. There will be four-cylinder and six-cylinder engine options, for petrol and diesel. The car will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next year in March. We can expect to see the new Discovery in India, shortly after its International launch.
