The 2017 Land Rover Discovery is scheduled for global premiere at 2016 Paris Motor Show
British luxury SUV manufacturer Land Rover has teased the all new 2017 Land Rover Discovery’s front fascia ahead of its unveiling on 28th September, just ahead of upcoming Paris Motor Show later this year. The car comes bigger and better compared to the previous model. The upcoming model was first displayed as the Discovery Vision Concept at the 2014 New York Auto Show.
The 2017 Land Rover Discovery comes with differently designed headlamps, with flowing designed LED daytime running lights. The front grille comes similar with the previous model’s radiator grille and it sports dual chrome garnished slats and looks aggressive. The front bumper of the upcoming model looks curvier compared to the previous model, and features a large silver skid plate, vertically shaped air dams. So far, the front fascia looks more aggressive and beefier than the outgoing model.
Land Rover Discovery is a seven seater SUV which has been very popular across the world since the car has been introduced for the first time. The 2017 Discovery comes built on a lightweight aluminium monocoque structure, which is also shared by Range Rover Sport and Range Rover. Compared to the outgoing model the upcoming model will come pretty lightweight, therefore easily maneuverable and much more fuel efficient as well.
According to Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s Chief Design Officer, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery redefines the Discovery DNA, and it also redefines the premiumness of the luxury SUV. The car comes with several technologies like laser scanning system, automatically adjustable suspension based on surface conditions, transparent hood technology etc.
Reports suggest, that the car will come powered by a range of engines from the Ingenium family. Expect it to come bearing the 3.0 litre SDV6 diesel engine which will come updated though, and also hybrid powertrains are expected to make way into the car. Apart from this, 2017 Land Rover Discovery is supposed to become the first model to get JLR’s special SVX off-road version. Expect the car to reach Indian market soon after global unveiling.
