The all-new Discovery’s exterior was originally previewed with the Discovery Vision concept that debated over two years ago. Although its design is a departure from the current model, the trademark stepped roof roofline remains. Thanks to the new aluminum construction, the new Discovery is a whopping 1,058 lbs lighter than the outgoing SUV. That weight loss should pay dividends in the fuel efficiency department.

Inside there is room for up to seven “full-sized adults” and the seats are instantly configurable from your smartphone using the world-first remote Intelligent Seat Fold technology. The interior of New Discovery continues the design revolution started by the Discovery Sport, where customers can specify a range of premium materials including luxurious Windsor leather upholstery and natural oak veneers.

Under the hood the new Discovery will be offered with diesel and gas powered engines. There are two four-cylinder diesel engines, a 180-hp 2.0L and a 240-hp 2.2L. A six-cylinder diesel generates 258 horsepower and the sole gas engine is a 340-hp supercharged 3.0L V6.

Even though the new Discovery’s exterior may look a bit softer than before, it’s still just as capable. Its height adjustable air suspension can be set to give the new Discovery just over 11 inches of ground clearance and the Terrain Response 2 system comes with a setting for almost every type of terrain. The new Discovery can also cross a body of water that is up to 36 inches high.
