After updating the Range Rover siblings for 2021, Land Rover has now updated the Discovery with subtle styling tweaks, onboard technology, and mild-hybrid powertrains. The 2021 Discovery starts at £53,655 in the UK.
As mentioned, the styling tweaks are subtle compared to the outgoing model, however, they’re noticeable. These include a new LED running light signature, new grille pattern, revised front & rear bumpers, and of course, a new LED taillight signature. The R-Dynamic model featured here wears Gloss Black and Shadow Atlas exterior accents.
The updates in the cabin look a lot more significant compared to the exterior, thanks to a new four-spoke steering wheel, a 12.3-inch driver display and a 11.4-inch Pivi Pro infotainment system. Buyers can also opt for a full-color Head-Up Display. Other features include PM2.5 air filtration, USB-A charging sockets, and onboard 4G Wi-Fi hotspot with support for up to 8 devices. Air suspension comes standard.
Also in the options list is a hands-free Gesture Tailgate. As for the loadspace itself, the Discovery offers up to 2,485-litre capacity with the second and third row seats folded down. With all seats up, it offers up to 258-litre.
Moving on to the business end of the story then, the 2021 Discovery offers the following powertrains –
- P300: 221 kW (300 hp); 2.0-litre 4-cylinder; 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque
- P360: 265 kW (360 hp); 3.0-litre 6-cylinder MHEV; 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque

- D300: 221 kW (300 hp); 3.0-litre 6-cylinder MHEV; 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque
The gearbox remains to be an 8-speed ZF automatic that drives all four wheels. The Terrain Response 2 system has been updated as well.
