Jaguar Land Rover has launched the updated Land Rover Discovery in India at prices starting from Rs. 88.06 lakh (ex-showroom, India).

The updated Discovery gets new LED headlights with daytime running lights, animated sweeping front and rear indicators, revised front bumper and rear bumpers and new side vents. It also comes with new LED tail light clusters with a new gloss-black panel connecting them.

On the inside, the 7-seater SUV gets a redesigned centre fascia with a new Pivi Pro infotainment system. The system has an 11.4-inch full HD touchscreen, which is 48% larger than on the outgoing car. Land Rover’s SOTA technology allows owners to update as many as 44 individual electronic modules, without visiting a dealership. The second-row seats have been redesigned and feature longer and thicker cushions.

The Discovery comes with a 12.3-inch instrument cluster which provides high-definition 3D mapping. The instrument cluster can be configured to show a pair of conventional dials, full-screen 3D navigation guidance or a combination of the two. Other features include a cabin air filter, Land Rover’s Click and Go tablet holders that are incorporated into the front seatbacks and USB-A charging sockets.

The Discovery is equipped with an optional hands-free electric tailgate and a seating layout that can be configured using the central touchscreen. A remote app has been provided to allow owners to keep tabs on the fuel status, location of their vehicles and lock / unlock the doors. Land Rover’s wearable second-generation Activity Key is also available. It features touchscreen controls, a digital watch and can remotely lock, unlock and start the vehicle.

The updated Discovery gets new inline 6-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines as well as a 4-cylinder petrol. The engine line-up:

  • P300: 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder petrol, 296 BHP & 400 Nm @ 1,500-4,500 rpm
