Article by Christian A., on October 5, 2012

Land Rover raises the standard for the Discovery 4 by offering new optional features for the 2013 model such as the Extended Leather Pack based on the HSE Luxury Limited Edition, and unique Black Design Packs, which have 19" or 20" all-black painted wheels and a series of black trim finishers and design details like gloss black grille and fender vents.

Discovery 4 is already world-famous as the ultimate all-purpose vehicle. In addition, customers can now choose from among five additional body colors as well as two new interior colours and trim improvements, giving customers more chances to customize their vehicle. Upgrades were given to the infotainment system to offer the latest generation DAB radio and a new digital TV tuner.

Meanwhile, the navigation system is now offered with premium features like Off-Road guidance and 4x4i. The Discovery 4 is still powered by the exceptional 256PS 3.0-litre LR-SDV6 and entry level 211PS 3.0-litre LR-TDV6 diesels with the ZF 8HP70 8-speed automatic transmission. These offer CO2 emissions of only 230g/km and 224g/km, respectively in EU5 markets.

Meanwhile, the 375PS 5.0-litre LR-V8 naturally aspirated petrol engine is equipped with the ultra-refined ZF 6HP28 6-speed automatic transmission. The Discovery 4 gets a stunning modern appearance with its distinct new Black Design Packs that sets off the car’s metallic paint finishes.

It is offered with either 19" 7-Split Spoke or 20" 5-Spoke all-black painted wheels. The optional Black Design Packs consist of gloss black grille & fender vents; gloss black door handles & mirror caps; gloss black LAND ROVER & DISCOVERY 4 badging; and satin black extended roof rails.

The latest fourth generation Land Rover Discovery 4 features a more premium cabin, fresh exterior look as well as a powerful and very efficient TDV6 engine. Dynamic improvements have also been made for off-road and road driving alike and to its battery as well which features new user-friendly technology and elements.

Managing director Phil Popham said that this model’s previous version may have gained over a hundred international awards for its name but they have been finding ways to virtually improve the vehicle’s engineering and design in every aspect. Thus, the new design hints a change in comprehensive engineering and now provides an all-new Land Rover Discovery 4.

The main highlight to this new version is its newly developed and highly efficient LR-TDV6 3.0 twin turbo diesel engine which delivers a fuel economy improvement of nine percent in an EU combined cycle as less CO2 emissions by ten percent at the same stance as a 29% increasing power as compared to the existing 2.7-litre engine. Its torque, which is deemed to be the peak torque output of any 6-cylinder, production diesel, and passenger vehicle engine worldwide, increases by more than 36% to 600Nm.

Both the power and torque are accessible across the whole rev range so to provide immediate throttle response as well as effortless cruising ability. Its results consist of a 0-60mph time of 9.0 seconds, (0-100 km/h in 9.6 seconds) and 24 percent improvement all over the 2.7-litre.

Its engineers were also able to transform the on-road ride as well as the handling for this new version and improved as well the near-legendary and off-road capabilities of the previous version.
