LandRover to launch Discovery facelift in India

Land Rover is set to launch the Discovery facelift in India. Information about the upcoming SUV is out on the carmaker’s India website. Revealed in November 2020, the SUV gets updated exteriors and interiors, along with more equipment.

The Discovery facelift remains largely similar to the outgoing model, though the styling has been spruced up in certain places. The front fascia has been restyled to bring it in line with the latest iteration of the Discovery Sport. Chief among the changes up front are the restyled grille and headlamps that now feature the LED Matrix tech on higher variants. At the back, the asymmetrical profile of the tailgate has been carried over, though the design has been enhanced with a pair of reworked tail-lamps that sport bolder LED elements.

The updated Discovery also gets a new R-Dynamic trim line that provides a gloss-black treatment to numerous trim elements, including the grille, bumper and body cladding, alloy wheels, wing mirrors and the roof.

Inside, the Discovery’s cabin retains its basic layout, albeit with a raft of upgrades. Taking centre stage on the dashboard is a new 11.4-inch touchscreen. Dubbed the Pivi Pro, the new infotainment system is shared with the recent crop of JLR models and is said to be far more intuitive to operate than the 10.0-inch Touch Pro display it replaces.

The Discovery competes with the BMW X5, the Mercedes-Benz GLE, the Audi Q7 and the Volvo XC90.
