Land Rover has revealed the updated Discovery. The 2021 model gets a mild facelift and other mechanical upgrades.

On the outside, the refreshed Discovery gets a slightly reworked front fascia featuring matrix LED headlights. At the rear, it gets updated LED tail lamp clusters with directional turn indicators while retaining the unique asymmetric design. The R-Dynamic variant gets contrasting gloss black exterior elements including the grille, alloy wheels, ORVMs and roof.

Inside, the 7-seater SUV retains the same dashboard layout albeit with a few updates. The centre console now houses a larger 11.4-inch Pivi Pro touchscreen infotainment head-unit. The 4-spoke steering wheel is borrowed from the new Defender. The 2nd-row seats are said to have been improved, while the rear AC vents are now positioned on the B-pillars.

The SUV comes with Land Rover’s Electronic Vehicle Architecture (EVA 2.0) that includes features such as over-the-air updates, connected car tech, ClearSight Ground View system and PM2.5 cabin air filters. The SUV is also equipped with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an optional head-up display.

The 2021 Discovery is available with mild-hybrid powertrains. These include a 355 BHP 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder petrol and a 3.0-litre diesel that is offered in two states of tune – 245. The entry-level 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine is the only non-hybrid motor available. An 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive is standard across all variants.
