What further helped the car shedding its weight are steel subframes, magnesium dash structure and composite one-piece tailgate. Besides this, the overall bodyside of the car is a single pressing that improves its rigidity.

Design elements such as unique stepped roofline, LED rear lamps, rounded rear profile add more to its sporty appearance. The overall length and wheelbase of the car have been increased by 141mm and 38mm respectively, while width and height are trimmed down. The new Discovery measures 4,970mm in length, 2,220mm in width and 1,846mm in height. The ground clearance of 283mm enhances its off-road capabilities. The SUV will be made available with a choice of 17 different colour schemes. The company will also be offering multiple customization options including 12 alloy wheel designs with 21-22-inch rims, optional roof rack attachments, roof bars, etc.
Interior of the SUV’s new-gen Discovery looks quite sophisticated and premium with high-quality materials, dual tones and flawless finish.
