The SUV will be launched in November at a starting price of Rs 68.05 lakh. The new Discovery is based on the company's Premium Lightweight Architecture (PLA) platform which has resulted in a massive weight reduction of 480kg as compared to the previous generation model.

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) on Wednesday announced opening of bookings for the all-new Land Rover Discovery at any of its 25 authorised retailers as well as online. The side profile of the new-age Discovery looks nearly like the smaller Discovery Sport, evidently so because of the slanted and thick C-pillar.

"Year on year, we have seen an increase in sales for Land Rover, led by continuing strong sales of the Discovery Sport and Range Rover".

In addition to making the outside look sleeker, the cabin too has been revamped completely with the latest in terms of trims and equipment. The 2017 Land Rover Discovery comes in three trims, namely S, SE and HSE.

Powering the all-new Land Rover Discovery SUV is a 3-litre diesel motor that makes 258PS and generates 600Nm of torque. Both the motors are paired to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission developed by ZF. The petrol variant will be powered by a 3.0-litre supercharged V6 unit that is capable of pumping out 340 PS of maximum power along with 450 Nm of peak torque.

Other features include engine start/stop, hill descent control, hill start assist, roll stability control, emergency brake assist, parallel-park assist, gradient acceleration control, ABS and traction control.

Auto maker Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has hailed "another successful month" with the Chinese market continuing to drive up sales.

The Land Rover Discovery competes in the luxury SUV segment against the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Audi Q7, and the Volvo XC90.
