Land Rover India Launches Most Affordable Discovery

  • Jun 07, 2019

Land Rover India has launched the new 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel Discovery in India. The car commands an ex-showroom starting price of ₹75.18 lakh which makes it the most affordable vehicle in the Discovery series to be available in India. The introduction of the new car is part of Land Rover’s programme to update its entire fleet.

While there are other 2.0-litre Ingenium engines available across Land Rover’s portfolio, the SD4 unit which powers the new Discovery is the first to have the series sequential turbo technology. It produces 240PS maximum power and 500Nm peak torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic gear system. Land Rover is offering the 2.0-litre engine alongside the 3.0-litre diesel motor which produces 258PS maximum power and 600Nm peak torque. The 3.0-litre unit was the only available diesel motor in the Land Rover Discovery until now and the car had a starting price of ₹88.78 lakh.

The Tata-owned company’s 7-passenger sports utility vehicle (SUV) has now become the most economical car in the Discovery series. The new 2.0-litre diesel Discovery is available in the S, SE, HSE and the HSE Luxury model. The V6 3.0-litre petrol-powered Discovery costs ₹76.94 for the entry-level S trim.

The 2.0-litre diesel Discovery retains all the features of its bigger sibling. It has 900mm water-wading depth capability, 3,500kg towing capacity, better departure and approach angles, and the Terrain Response 2 system. Other features include electrically reclining seats, cabin air ionisation, intelligent seat fold, climate control, panoramic sunroof, third-row seats, adaptive cruise control, and a 360-degree camera.

The present generation of Land Rover Discovery debuted in India in 2017. The company is likely to introduce the Ingenium 2.0-litre diesel motor in other Land Rover cars as well in the coming days. The Discovery rivals the Volvo XC90, BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE, and the Audi Q7 in the Indian market.
