Land Rover Discovery interior captured for the first time

August 18, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Automobile publications have published photos from tests of the prototype of the Land Rover Discovery version of the 2021 model year. The interior of the facelifted British SUV houses a large infotainment screen and a new steering wheel.

Spy photos of the partially disguised Land Rover Discovery first surfaced in May this year, hinting that an updated version of the SUV will soon be unveiled. A month later, more images like this appeared, although Land Rover continued to hide the changes that would come to the design of the popular black and white camouflage model. The new batch of images finally gives us more – our first look at the interior of the refreshed Discovery, and it looks like this part of the new product will change dramatically from the current SUV.

On the front, we see a large screen for the infotainment system.

The steering wheel looks new too. You can also notice wireless charging and a smart rearview mirror.

There are changes that will affect the exterior of the novelty. The camouflage we’ve seen on test prototypes of the SUV since May is still present on this test car, covering the SUV from the waistline to the wheels. Behind the camouflage are redesigned front and rear bumpers, a new false radiator grille, redesigned lighting elements and other minor changes to help freshen up the Discovery’s design.

Land Rover may also update the new Discovery’s engine range. Rumors have it that the automaker will provide a version of the SUV with a 48-volt mild hybrid system (available for petrol / diesel engines), as well as a plug-in hybrid powertrain that will be offered to buyers at a later date.

There is no word yet on when Land Rover will unveil the new Discovery, although it is known that it should go on sale next year.

Not so long ago, we wrote that Land Rover presented the hybrid Evoque and Discovery Sport. Two models of the British company became plug-in hybrids at once – Evoque P300e PHEV and Discovery Sport P300e PHEV.
