The Land Rover Discovery is an excellent vehicle to lease and now features a mild-hybrid engine, plus a new infotainment system.
For those who want a versatile family SUV, the new Land Rover Discovery is an ideal contract hire choice.
There are efficient and powerful 48V MHEV powertrains available, improved comfort and the firm’s new Pivi Pro infotainment system onboard the vehicle.
The design enhancements include new LED headlights and tail lights, and new bumpers to give the Discovery a more assertive road presence.
Interior changes include comfort improvements to the second row of seats.
The new Land Rover Discovery is smarter, faster and better-connected than the model it replaces.
The infotainment system features an 11.4-inch HD display that is larger and brighter than the version used before, and there are also software over-the-air-updates to boost connectivity.
As mentioned, along with the mild hybrid electric vehicle choice, the Discovery has the firm's latest Ingenium diesel and petrol engines.
The diesel engines are also cleaner to meet the latest compliance rules.
Steering comfort and grip have been boosted by the intelligent all-wheel drive system that will deliver torque to the axle that will need it most to deliver better efficiency.
Not always necessary when driving around town – but a boon on slippery surfaces, in adverse weather and when off-roading.
The Disco also gets a cabin air ionisation system to filter out any harmful particulates and the air quality in the cabin is constantly monitored.
There's also family versatility with a wearable activity key and tablet holders that are 'click and go' for the rear seat passengers.
The Discovery also features 3,500kg of towing capacity, which is a best in class offering, and there is 'advanced tow assist' so difficult reversing manoeuvres are made easier.
Choosing the Land Rover Discovery as a car leasing choice means drivers get to enjoy a superb offering with real off-roading talents – the vehicle is still one of the world’s best when driven in rugged terrain.
There are also new alloy wheels available in a range of sizes.
The petrol engine range starts with the four-cylinder 2.0-litre turbocharged unit producing 296bhp and torque of 400Nm.
There's also a 3.0-litre petrol unit with an electric supercharger to deliver 355 bhp and torque of 500Nm.
The new Land Rover Discovery builds on its talents but also delivers a great SUV that is easy to live with and it remains a great car to lease.
Green Cars’ is the term used for zero, low and ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) - with pressure being applied to lower global emission levels, the need for “eco-friendly” vehicles is on the rise. Many countries now have plans in place to abolish the use of combustion engines before the turn of the century and so more and more vehicles we see on the roads will be Electric, hybrid or very low emission petrol and diesels.
Although beneficial to the environment, ‘Green Cars’ are also beneficial from a taxation view. The lower a vehicle’s emissions banding, the lower the taxation placed against it. Many manufacturers have tapped in to this ever-growing market with their own offerings, however, Volvo were the first manufacturer to state that every one of their models will be either electric or hybrid options from 2019.
