THE FAREWELL DISCOVERYS PDF Print E-mail

THE FAREWELL DISCOVERYSThe 2015 MODEL year range of Discovery models has now been announced by Land Rover. Given the arrival next year of the new Discovery range, this could be the last revamp of the highly successful Discovery 4 range. It also marks the 25 years of Discovery, and as you might expect there’s a new XXV Special Edition anniversary model available. The XXV Special Edition notably gets the new InControl Apps Options.

All models in the range get updates. The entry level SE now has additional features as standard compared to the previous entry point GS specification, including cruise control, front fog lights, automatic headlamps and wipers, headlamp power wash, auto dimming rear view mirror and interior foot well and door puddle lamps.

Next up, the SE Tech replaces the previous XS specification and adds Xenon headlights with LED signature as standard. The HSE variants now have 20 inch alloy wheels as standard. HSE also has the Grand Black Lacquer wood and leather-wrapped steering wheel from the XXV Special Edition anniversary model as an optional extra. The colour range has also been extended with three new colours introduced; Aruba, Kaikora Stone and Montalcino Red replace Luxor, Ipanema Sand and Nara Bronze.

 
BUYERS’ GUIDE: LAND ROVER DISCOVERY 3 PDF Print E-mail

This was the car that dragged the Discovery from its cheekily chic origins into the world of true luxury SUVs. It was bigger, bolder and packed with new technology – and it was also more reliable

Land Rover Discovery 3 TARGET RANGE: £5000 - £18,000

The Range Stormer concept car that wowed visitors to the North American International Auto Show in 2004 was a clear indication of the way Land Rover was planning to distance their premium products from the company’s agricultural roots. That concept was eventually developed into the Range Rover Sport, but many of the design cues were used to hoist the already popular and stylish Discovery to new heights of elegance and road presence, with sharper styling and new technologies aimed at reasserting its 4x4 pre-eminence among the new generation of luxury 4x4s from other premium car-makers such as BMW, Lexus and Porsche.

The crisper frontal design of the new Discovery 3, with its designer headlamps, inset foglamps and the clamshell bonnet came straight from the Range Stormer, along with the newly patented Terrain Response system; so did the body-on-frame construction resulting in a stronger all-in-one bodyshell. The Discovery 3 was designed from the start as a seven-seater, the stepped-roof design allowing the three rows of seats to get progressively higher towards the rear, which combined with the large rear glass area makes for a light and airy atmosphere for all seven passengers, the seats being quite comfortable enough to accommodate seven adults.
