All-new Land Rover Discovery set for festive season launch.
Jaguar Land Rover India's Managing Director and President Mr Rohit Suri had confirmed plans to launch ten new products this year in April, after which the Jaguar XE diesel was launched in May. Now, Mr Suri has revealed in an interview with The Economic Times that the company will launch the 2017 Land Rover Discovery in India in October 2017.
The 2017 Land Rover Discovery is the fifth incarnation of the nameplate. This is the third major redesign in the mid-size SUV's lifecycle, and it makes it look softer and luxurious than the previous model which had a rather utilitarian design. The all-new Land Rover Discovery gets its captivating looks from the Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept from 2014.

The 3.0-litre Td6 V6 engine is tuned for 258 PS and 600 Nm of torque. The 3.0-litre Si6 V6 engine puts out 340 PS and 450 Nm of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission is standard, and so is a four-wheel drive system, with a single-speed transfer box or a twin-speed transfer box depending on the engine model and equipment grade selected.
