The Land Rover models are the face of quality and luxury, followed by endurance, and with every new model they bring something new. The same case we can expect with the recently facelifted 2018 Land Rover Discovery. This model will be probably the most powerful Discovery so far and we can expect very good off road abilities. Also, it will have a sleek appearance for the urban ride and it is expected to attract so many customers. As we know, this model debuted at the Paris Motor Show about a month and a half ago. Just to make sure that you know, in the USA dealerships this model is known as an LR4 model. The Discovery model is almost certainly one of the last of the old-school SUVs that provides excellent off-road ability. However, with this refresh, the Land Rover will try to make the new Discovery more modern and stylish.
2018 Land Rover Discovery Exterior design
From the outside, the resulting model looks amazing and we can expect some new and refreshed things. First of all, instead of well known boxy appearance we can now expect much rounder look than before. Also, when it comes to chassis, we can anticipate a new aluminum platform that will be very useful for weight. More precisely, the new Discovery will be about 970 pounds lighter than the current model which will be very good for fuel economy and engine performance.

According to Land Rover, the most recent Discovery is 85 % aluminum. They also say that the off-road ability will be the best so far and that we can expect 11.1 inches of ground clearance as well as 35.4 inches a wading depth. Although the next thing is not so important for this kind car, we have to mention that the aerodynamic is also better than before. When it comes to some details from the outside, we can expect massive front bumper with the large air vents and fog lights. Also, the front grille is classic L.R. and it is connected with the LED headlights(very nice “U” shape daylights). At the 2018 Land Rover Discovery sides, this model will most likely use 20-inch alloy wheels. Towing capacity is 8,200 pounds.
New Land Rover Discovery 2018 Interior
The interior design is not eyes catching, but it is very elegant with luxury details. All seats in the cabin are well shaped and they have leather upholstery. Also, all-new Land Rover Discovery 2018 will be adjustable in so many ways, and because of that the comfort inside will be on the high level. If you want more space for your luggage you can fold the last row of seats. Everything inside is now more stylish and this model will have a lot of high-tech features and standard features. For example, there is the fresh 10.0-inch screen with updated InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, modern air condition, a lot of connectivity options, Wi-Fi hot spot(support eight devices) and many others as well.

Both engines will be mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission system and the power will be routed to four wheels.
