Land Rover set to debut all-new Discovery ahead of 2016 Paris Motor Show

The fourth generation Discovery will be replaced soon after Land Rover released the first image of the all-new Discovery. Slated to make its global reveal at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, the next-generation midsize SUV will embody the brand's drive to 'Go Above and Beyond' according to Land Rover.

Based on the image, the 2017 Discovery now follows the brand's current design language. The SUV also takes several styling cues from the smaller Discovery Sport, particularly the grill and lower air intake. It even features a clamshell-type hood, wraparound headlights and what looks to be an integrated bumper spoiler.

“New Discovery redefines the large SUV. Land Rover’s design and engineering teams have revolutionised the Discovery DNA to create a highly desirable, extremely versatile and hugely capable premium SUV,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover chief design officer.

Details about the upcoming 2017 Discovery are minimal but Land Rover did say it will seat seven and will make use of the latest tech that will deliver versatililty and capability.

It will be making its world debut on September 28, 2016.
