Upmarket spec for 2013 Discovery

A new Land Rover Discovery variant will become available exclusively for the UK for 2013.

Based on the 3.0-litre 256bhp HSE, the HSE Luxury derivative comes equipped with high-end standard features such as the Harmon Kardon LOGIC 7 surround sound audio system and rear seat entertainment, while the interior has an extended leather pack as standard.

Also new is a distinctive Black Design Pack with  20-inch all-black painted wheels and a host of black trim finishers and design details such as gloss black grille and wing vents.

Customers also now have a choice of five additional body colours and two new interior colours and trim enhancements, offering customers an even greater opportunity to personalise their car.

The infotainment system has been upgraded to include the latest generation DAB radio and a new digital TV tuner, whilst the navigation system now comes with premium features such as off-road guidance and 4x4 interface as standard.

The 256bhp 3.0-litre continues to power the Discovery  with the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, producing CO2 emissions of 230g/km.

A 211bhp 3.0 litre engine continues to be available for commercial derivatives.

John Edwards, global brand director for Land Rover, said: "The Discovery 4 continues to win awards for its unrivalled versatility and breadth of capability, accommodating up to seven passengers in comfort whatever the terrain.

"For 2013, the breadth of choice gets better, with equipment upgrades a new range-toping derivative and our new Black Design Packs enhancing the key design attributes that our customers identify with today. As the ultimate all-purpose vehicle, the Discovery 4 is now more compelling than ever before."
