New Discovery for Paris reveal

This is the first sight of Land Rover’s completely new Discovery, due for public debut at the Paris Motor Show, writes Brian Byrne.

According to JLR’s chief designer Gerry McGovern, the new 7-seat car will ‘redefine’ the large SUV. No further details are available in advance of the 28 September reveal.

The Discovery was first produced by Land Rover in 1989, becoming the second model for Land Rover and necessitating the change for the original Land Rover series cars to the name Defender.

The new one will be the third generation of the nameplate, though due to extensive revisions to previous versions, it has been in development as Discovery 5.
