LAND ROVER has launched the new fifth-gen­er­a­tion Dis­cov­ery. Avail­able at a start­ing price of Rs 71.38 lakh (ex-show­room), the Dis­cov­ery gets the fa­mil­iar Land Rover de­sign features which we’ve been see­ing in the re­cent wave of SUVs from the com­pany. The Dis­cov­ery fo­cuses on op­ti­mis­ing in­te­rior space for its pas­sen­gers and gets a host of features. This in­cludes the world’s first In­tel­li­gent Seat Fold sys­tem, Ges­ture Con­trol to al­low open­ing of the main tail­gate with the wave of the foot, a dual-pur­pose pow­ered In­ner Tail­gate to re­tain loose items when raised or of­fer com­fort­able seat­ing when low­ered. An­other first for Land Rover is the Ac­tiv­ity Key, a durable and wa­ter­proof wrist­band to lock and un­lock to al­low out­door ac­tiv­i­ties with­out car­ry­ing keys. The Dis­cov­ery gets new tech­no­log­i­cal features for greater con­ve­nience, like Park As­sist, Lane Keep As­sist, Driver Con­di­tion Mon­i­tor, Adap­tive Cruise Con­trol with Queue As­sist and a sur­round cam­era sys­tem which pro­vides as 360° ex­te­rior view. Be­ing a Land Rover, it also features a plethora of tech­nol­ogy to help in the rough stuff and these in­clude Ter­rain Re­sponse 2, Hill Start As­sist, Hill De­scent Con­trol, Gra­di­ent Re­lease Con­trol and a Per­ma­nent four-wheel drive with a two-speed trans­fer case. Pow­er­ing the Dis­cov­ery will be the op­tion of a 3.0-litre su­per­charged V6 335bhp petrol en­gine and a 3.0-litre diesel with 255bhp.
