Interior and Trims

The interior of the new Land Rover Discovery Commercial exudes an air of luxury and sophistication, characteristic of Land Rover's premium offerings. While the focus of the Discovery Commercial is on practicality and cargo space, it doesn't compromise on comfort or high-quality materials.

The cabin provides ample space for the driver and front passenger, ensuring a comfortable and relaxed driving experience even on long journeys. The seats are generally well-cushioned and supportive, making them ideal for extended periods behind the wheel. As for the rear cargo area, it features a flat load space devoid of rear seats, offering a generous amount of room for transporting goods, equipment, or other cargo. 

Land Rover pays attention to the finer details, incorporating premium materials throughout the cabin. Soft-touch surfaces, fine fabrics, and optional leather upholstery elevate the overall sense of luxury. The dashboard is elegantly designed and typically houses a user-friendly infotainment system with a touchscreen display, providing access to various functions, including navigation, smartphone connectivity, and entertainment features.

Two trim levels are available: SE and HSE.

Land Rover Discovery Commercial SE model includes a host of impressive standard features such as 'Premium' LED headlights and LED taillights, 21-inch alloy wheels with all-terrain tires, 18-way electrically adjustable heated seats with leather upholstery, and an 11.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Pivi Pro. Other notable inclusions are the 400W Meridian Sound System with 12 speakers, a dual-channel subwoofer, and the Smartphone Pack offering Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. The SE model also comes with advanced driving technologies like the 3D Surround Camera, Cruise control, All-wheel drive, Electronic Air Suspension, and Terrain Response for tackling different road conditions. Additionally, practical features like under-floor storage, a powered inner tailgate, and a fixed bulkhead contribute to the model's overall functionality.

Stepping up to the Land Rover Discovery Commercial HSE model adds even more premium touches. It comes equipped with Matrix LED headlights, a gesture control-powered tailgate, and larger 22-inch alloy wheels. The interior is further enhanced with 20-way electrically adjustable seats that are both heated and cooled, along with luxurious Windsor leather upholstery and premium cabin lighting. For audiophiles, the HSE boasts a 700W Meridian Surround Sound System with 14 speakers and a dual-channel subwoofer. In terms of safety, Adaptive Cruise Control and an additional safety kit enhance the HSE model's driving experience and protection. While the SE model offers a comprehensive set of features, the HSE takes it a step further with its added luxury and convenience elements, making it an enticing choice for those seeking a truly top-tier commercial vehicle.

Power and Performance

The Land Rover Discovery Commercial initially offered customers a choice between two diesel engine options: a 2.0-litre four-cylinder and a 3.0-litre six-cylinder. However, the current lineup now exclusively includes the D300 3.0-litre six-cylinder model, which boasts the added advantage of mild-hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV) technology. MHEV technology involves a small electric motor replacing the traditional starter motor, providing the diesel engine with a modest electric boost. This allows the engine to recover more energy during deceleration, shut down more efficiently when idling (thus saving fuel), and restart faster, even receiving a slight electrical boost at low rpm.

The D300 engine, paired with the standard eight-speed automatic transmission, delivers exceptional performance, combining power with refinement and smooth operation. The Land Rover Discovery Commercial distinguishes itself from regular commercial vans by incorporating this advanced engine technology, setting it apart as a standout choice in its class.

Regardless of the engine choice, the Discovery Commercial comes equipped with an advanced automatic transmission, ensuring smooth gear changes and effortless driving. All models also come with all-wheel-drive as standard, a key feature that enhances the vehicle's off-road capabilities and provides better traction in challenging conditions.

Land Rover has built a reputation for producing vehicles that excel in off-road situations, and the Discovery Commercial is no exception. It features an intelligent all-wheel-drive system and advanced off-road technologies such as Terrain Response, which allows the driver to select different driving modes optimized for various terrains, such as mud, sand, or rock. The Electronic Air Suspension further enhances off-road performance by adjusting the ride height to suit the conditions.

Overall, the Land Rover Discovery Commercial is an exceptional fusion of versatility, luxury, and capability. It caters to those who require a reliable and capable workhorse for their commercial needs while not compromising on comfort and technology. With its off-road prowess and abundant cargo space, it stands out in the market as a unique and functional option for various professionals. If you seek a commercial vehicle that doesn't compromise on style or performance, the Land Rover Discovery Commercial is certainly worth considering.
