A new ultra-versatile commercial version of the Land Rover Discovery will go on sale in the UK on Monday, December 18th 2017. Featuring 1,856 litres of flexible load space replacing the second and third row seats, the new Discovery affords driver and passenger premium levels of comfort and entertainment.

Discovery Commercial is available with Land Rover’s Ingenium 2.0D SD4 240HP and 3.0D TD6 258HP engines and comes exclusively with four wheel drive, automatic transmission, twin-speed transfer box, air suspension and a full-size spare wheel. Fitted solely with Discovery’s front row seating; driver comfort and convenience remain unchanged with InControl Touch Pro featuring as standard.

There will be also cruise control and speed limiter, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, heated windscreen and rear window, heated door mirrors, DAB radio, InControl Protect, Tyre Pressure Monitoring system, Hill Launch Assist, Dynamic Stability Control, Roll Stability Control, Cornering Brake Control, Gradient Acceleration Control, Hill Descent Control and Trailer Stability Assist all come as standard.

The second and third row seating have been replaced with 1,856 litres of hard-wearing load-space. Discovery Commercial’s load-space measures 1,635 mm long, 939 mm high and 1,411 mm wide. The boot aperture is large enough to accept loads measuring up to 1000 x 735 mm.

Discovery Commercial comes with Land Rover’s unique Terrain Response systems which optimise the vehicle’s engine, gearbox, centre differential and chassis systems to match the demands of the terrain. Optional Terrain Response 2 system enhances this even further by monitoring driving conditions and automatically selecting the driving modes ensuring loads are delivered whatever the terrain, whatever the weather.

Retaining the exterior design of Discovery, rear window concealment panels are masked by privacy glass so Discovery Commercial can be undistinguishable as a commercial vehicle if desired. The prices starts at £48,695 plus VAT at £8,066.67 (55,206 € / 9 145.34 €).
