Land Rover Discovery generations

The first Discovery was released in 1989, when Land Rover decided that it was time for a more practical and family-friendly off-roading SUV to sit between the Range Rover and Defender models. Originally, it shared many of the same parts as the Range Rover. Now in its fifth generation, the Discovery has built its own reputation with a unique style and an updated cabin. Land Rover continues to make changes that make new generation models more capable, efficient and functional.

Discovery 5 (2017-present)

The release of the Discovery 5, otherwise known as the L462, revealed a much curvier and modernised exterior look. While the SUV has more of an on-road appearance, it is 500kg lighter than the previous variant, and has therefore become more efficient off-road.

A 2020 facelift changed the powertrain options with the release of mild-hybrid technology. Additional comfort features and safety equipment were also released to ensure that the Discovery remained ahead of the competition.

Discovery 4 (2009-2016)

While it shared the same underpinnings with the Discovery 3, the Discovery 4 gained some upgraded features and a fresh look. The rounded bumpers and restyled lighting helped it look more like the popular Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models of the same time period.

Land Rover included up-to-date interior features. The entry-level GS models received a 5-inch TFT infotainment screen, Bluetooth, and push-button start. The top-spec HSE models were offered with a premium 14-speaker Harman Kardon sound system and a rear-view camera for more parking guidance.

Discovery 3 (2004-2009)

Otherwise referred to as the L319, the Discovery 3 received an independent suspension and an available air suspension as a customisation option for all non-base models. A new Terrain Response System could also be added to models with air suspension.

A 2008 facelift came right before the fourth generation. Land Rover added body-coloured wheel arch trims and bumpers, as well as minor updates to the exterior.

Where does the Discovery fit in the Land Rover lineup?

Is the Land Rover Discovery available as an automatic?

The newest Discovery lineup only comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This configuration ensures reliability and provides quick gear changes for a more enjoyable experience.

What popular extras should I look out for?

For maximum comfort, you may want to keep an eye out for models with the 20-way adjustable heated and cooled electric driver's seat. Extra features also include upgraded 22-inch wheels and a premium Meridian sound system for an immersive experience.
