The Land Rover Discovery is a full-size SUV with a 7-seater layout. The upcoming Discovery is the third-generation model, though there have been five versions since its introduction back in 1989.

The SUV is based on JLR's latest light full-size SUV architecture; the new-generation Discovery is expected to be more comfortable, lighter, faster and more capable than the previous model. The next-generation Discovery is 480kg lighter, and it sits on an aluminium monocoque chassis making the SUV stiffer and lighter compared to the previous generation.
