This next-generation Discovery is 480kg lighter than the previous model and sits on an aluminium monocoque chassis.

This Land Rover Discovery is a full-size SUV with a seven-seater layout. In terms of safety, the SUV comes loaded with features like ABS, cornering brake control, front and side curtain airbags and others.
Global wholesales for Jaguar Land Rover were 51,425 vehicles (*JLR number for July 17 includes CJLR volumes of 6,805 units).
