N A V I G A T O R T R U E S T R E N G T H IS THE ABILITY TO ADAPT DISCOVERY SERIES I The 1990s saw the emergence of a new kind of Land Rover. The Discovery Series I had the capability of the Defender off-road, yet it combined this with a level of comfort and technology within the vehicle that had not previously been associated with a Land Rover. It set the blueprint for the future. DISCOVERY SERIES II Launched in 1998, the Discovery Series II may have looked very similar to the original Discovery, but was, in fact, drastically different underneath. Innovative technologies included the industry-first Hill Descent Control that had been introduced on the Freelander and a longer, wider body made for greater load capacity and legroom. DISCOVERY 3 The arrival of the Discovery 3 in 2004 represented the most radical change to the iconic vehicle. New from the ground up, the Discovery 3 introduced a series of updates, including maximised occupant accommodation and pioneering Terrain Response technology. A new selection of premium finishes and intelligent nurturing of the iconic Discovery design language was combined with supreme off-road capability, resulting in an award-winning vehicle that many still regard as a modern classic. 03 INSIGHT 12

When it was launched in 1989, the Land Rover Discovery was aptly named. By combining Land Rover class-leading off-road capability with a greater focus on design, a vehicle was born with the versatility to create a whole new market for Land Rover products. And the success story continues but the All-New Discovery is not merely the fifth generation of the vehicle, it is the leader of a new Discovery family of vehicles. As such, it can be seen as a new beginning. “There is a premium execution to the new Discovery,” says Land Rover Chief Design Officer Gerry McGovern. This focus on precision and ever greater refinement coupled with proven capability in all conditions points to the future of Discovery. DISCOVERY 4 Unveiled in 2009, the fourth generation Discovery delivered 600nm of torque from its 256PS 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel engine, the highest performance of any V6 diesel engine in the world at the time, yet with improved economy and CO 2 emissions. In design terms, however, the real changes were yet to come… ALL-NEW DISCOVERY Featuring the riveted and bonded aluminium monocoque structure found on the latest Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, the fifth generation of Discovery is lighter, sleeker and more dynamic than its predecessors, with enhanced versatility, which has always been a defining feature of the Discovery. 13
