Sleek design, less weight and lower fuel costs

The fifth-gen Discovery gets a fresh new look that brings the design in-line with the Range Rover Sport. It also weighs 480kg less than before, thanks to the use of lightweight aluminium construction. As a result it’ll be capable of returning an official 43.5mpg, when specified with the 240PS SD4 engine.

The twin-turbo SD4 develops a whopping 500Nm of torque and is the latest addition to the Ingenium family of diesel engines. A six-cylinder TDV6, with 358PS and 600Nm of torque is also available, along with a supercharged V6 340PS petrol.
