Land Rover Discovery gets mildly updated for 2021


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


  • D250: 183 kW (249 hp); 3.0-litre 6-cylinder MHEV; 570 Nm (420 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.
