Its front sees not much difference in design as compared to the Land Rover Discovery Vision concept showcased earlier, while new grille, LED headlights and vertical air intakes on the bumper unit are evident along with front skid plates.

Interiors of 2017 Land Rover Discovery will be seen with stepped roof allowing for stadium seating for upto 7 adults. It sports a two-tone interior. Dashboard and central console design remain much the same while infotainment system is completely touchscreen operated and hence devoid of buttons.

Where engine specifications are concerned, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery will receive a range of petrol and diesel engine options. The 2017 Land Rover Discovery will be built along with the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport at the Solihull plant in England.

Land Rover Discovery will also have a new feature. This will allow you to control all 7 seats in the SUV by an app on your smartphone. Watch the video below.
