New Disco van flagged up as image booster

LAND Rover is aiming at fleets who want commercial vehicles which will give their companies a high image with the launch of the new Discovery Commercial. Already a favourite among the go-getting car classes of Britain, the Discovery in van guise was launched with a 2.5-litre five cylinder Td5 diesel powerplant.

The new van keeps the car's five-door format and features black opaque security glass in the rear windows. Priced at £22,795 OTR, the new van certainly isn't cheap, but then Land Rover would argue that it is good value for money bearing in mind the kudos it will give a company driving such a fleet of vans.

ABS brakes with electronic brake force distribution come as standard and traction control and hill descent control is an added option. Also on the stand was the 2001 version of the Freelander Commercial, which is available with a 1.8-litre petrol engine (£16,306 OTR) or 2.0-litre common rail diesel (£17,505). The diesel version is now available with the added option of a five-speed automatic gearbox with steptronic control.
