Inside the Land Rover Discovery

Inside the Land Rover Discovery

March 1, 2018

The Land Rover Discovery enters 2018 with one new standard infotainment system feature and two exciting available upgrades. In addition to these few changes, the Discovery remains a good, luxury mid-sized SUV. It should certainly be on your short list if you are looking to buy one. Here are the answers to questions you may have about the new, 2018 Land Rover Discovery.


Is the Land Rover Discovery big enough for seven?


The 2018 Land Rover Discovery can be a five- or seven-passenger vehicle. It depends on which trim you get. The five-passenger models have two rows of seating. The seven-passenger models have a third row of seats.

Seating is very comfortable in the Discovery for the driver and passengers. The front seats have excellent adjustability and are positioned for optimum visibility. The second and third rows are unusually roomy with plenty of room for adults.


How many child seats can be secured in the new Land Rover Discovery?


Discoveries have either two or four child-seat connectors, depending on whether you get a five-passenger model or seven-passenger model. LATCH connectors for child seats are located on the outer seats in the second and third rows of seats.


Does the 2018 Discovery have leather seats?


Yes. Even the base Land Rover Discovery trim level comes with leather upholstery.


How many trim options are available with the 2018 Land Rover Discovery?


The 2018 Discovery is available in SE, HSE and Luxury HSE trims. The base trim is the best value. Luxurious, power-adjustable, leather-covered front seats, a panoramic sunroof, a hands-free power liftgate, rain-sensing windshield wipers, push-button start and dual-zone automatic climate control all come standard in the Discovery SE. MSRP for the SE trim is $52,090.

The Discovery HSE has tri-zone automatic climate control, rather than dual-zone, and a power-adjustable steering wheel. MSRP is $58,490.

The HSE Luxury trim has a higher grade of leather upholstery on the seats and a heated steering wheel. It also comes with heated seats in the first and second row and the second row of seats recline. MSRP for the 2018 Discovery HSE Luxury is $65,490.


What kind of upgrade packages are available for the 2018 Discovery?


Land Rover offers a Drive package for $565. It includes blind spot monitoring, traffic sign recognition, driver drowsiness monitoring and rear cross traffic alert safety features.

They also offer a Drive Pro package for $2,400 that includes all the features from the Drive package along with forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking.

A Cold Climate package is available for $1,275. It includes heated seats in the front and second row and a heated steering wheel.

The Seven-seat package is available for the SE and HSE models. That adds the third row of seating for $2,195. It also includes a two-speed transfer case as well as adaptive air suspension. The Capability package costs $1,530 and comes with Land Rover’s Terrain Response 2 system. It also includes a two-speed transfer case and adaptive air suspension.

The above packages are all available for the same price on both the SE and HSE models.

A Luxury Climate Comfort package is available on the Discovery HSE for $3,540. It includes the Cold Climate package and four-zone automatic climate control. Upgraded leather upholstery and ventilated seats in the first and second row are also included.

A Seven-seat Luxury Climate Comfort package is also available on the HSE model. It includes all the features from the Luxury Climate Comfort package and heated seats in the third row for $3,900.

The Vision Assist package can be added for $1,020. It includes LED headlights and a 360-degree camera.

An 8″ entertainment system for the second row of seats can be added for $2,320. You can also get two 12V power sockets installed in the second-row seating area for $105.

All of the upgrade packages for the HSE are available on the HSE Luxury model except for the Cold Climate package.

The new Head-up Display is an available option on Discovery HSE and HSE Luxury trims. It projects important operating information onto the windshield in front of the driver’s seat. This is a separate add-on option that costs $970.


Does the new Discovery come with a top-of-the-line infotainment system?


Yes, Land Rover equips all Discovery trim levels with some of the latest technology like navigation, SiriusXM Satellite Radio & HD Radio, USB charging ports, a 10″ touchscreen and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The 10″ touchscreen is standard on all trim levels for 2018. Connected Navigation includes traffic information and street images. It also comes with a Route Planner smartphone app that lets you send your destination details directly from your smartphone to the Discovery. The audio system includes 10 speakers or 16 speakers with a subwoofer.


Is there lots of cargo space in the new Discovery?


Yes. The 2018 Discovery has more cargo area than most mid-size luxury SUVs. With the rear seats folded flat, there are 82.7 cubic feet of cargo space.


Does the 2018 Land Rover Discovery get good gas mileage?


The Discovery is not the most fuel-efficient mid-sized luxury SUV on the market. If you get the 6-cylinder 3.0-L engine, you can expect to get 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. The 4-cylinder, 2.0-L engine is more fuel efficient. It gets 20-21 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The EPA hasn’t published mileage figures for Discovery models equipped with the new 3.0-L Turbo Diesel engine.


Is the 2018 Land Rover Discovery worth the money?


It is well worth the cost if you want a high-end, luxury, mid-sized SUV that you can take off-road. If you don’t have any interest in going rock crawling with your SUV, you might be just as happy with a Volvo XC90. It is a good, luxury mid-size SUV with a more affordable price tag. The base trim starts out at $46,900. The Volvo XC90 is also a little more fuel efficient at 20-22 mpg in the city and 27-29 mpg on the highway.
