The 2017 Land Rover Discovery has been officially teased before its world premiere on 28th September 2016 ahead of the Paris Motor Show. Land Rover’s new full-sized, seven-seat SUV will now enter its fifth generation, and was previewed by the Land Rover Discovery Vision concept from 2014.

The next generation Discovery will be based on Land Rover’s new PLA (Premium Lightweight Architecture), which it’ll share with the Range Rover Sport and the Range Rover. Stylistically, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery will stay honest to the concept, bringing the Discovery closer to the new, swanky Land Rover family look. Highlights include a stepped, floating roof, horizontal tail lamps and full-LED headlamps (a first for a Land Rover).
The all-new Land Rover Discovery will be available with a range of 2.0- and 3.0-litre petrol and diesel engine options globally, along with a mild-hybrid power-train. International sales of the 2017 Land Rover Discovery begin in the first half of 2017, and it will be built at the Solihull plant in England. Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s Chief Design Officer, said: “New Discovery redefines the large SUV. Land Rover’s design and engineering teams have revolutionised the Discovery DNA to create a highly desirable, extremely versatile and hugely capable premium SUV.”
