Land Rover’s ultra-versatile commercial version of their Discovery model has now gone on sale in Ireland, priced from €52,695 ex-delivery.
The second and third rows of seats are replaced in the commercial model by 1,856 litres of hard-wearing load space, while driver and passenger comfort levels are retained.
Available with Land Rover’s 3.0D TD6 258hp engine, the Discovery Commercial shares the fundamental underpinnings of the Discovery. From its wide-spaced double-wishbone design at the front to its advanced multi-link layout at the rear, the Discovery Commercial’s suspension delivers more responsive handling without compromising Land Rover’s hallmark all-terrain capability.
The Discovery Commercial comes exclusively with four wheel drive, automatic transmission, and air suspension. The HSE model features heated seats and a ‘Cold Climate’ pack as standard. This pack includes a heated windscreen, heated washer jets and heated steering wheel.
Accessed by a powered tailgate and benefiting from Discovery’s innovative powered inner tailgate, the Discovery Commercial’s load-space measures 1,635mm long, 939mm high and 1,411mm wide. The boot aperture is large enough to accept loads measuring up to 1000 x 735mm.
The Discovery Commercial comes with Land Rover’s unique ‘Terrain Response’ systems which optimises the vehicle’s engine, gearbox, centre differential and chassis systems to match the demands of the terrain.
Retaining the exterior design of the passenger Discovery, rear window concealment panels are masked by privacy glass so the Discovery Commercial can be indistinguishable as a commercial vehicle if desired.
The Discovery Commercial features a host of technology, convenience features and driver aids necessary when transporting loads for business. These include cruise control and speed limiter, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, heated door mirrors, tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS ), hill launch assist (HLA ), dynamic stability control (DSC ), and a whole host of others.
19-inch alloy wheels, a rear parking aid, rain sensing windscreen wipers, automatic headlights, auto-dimming interior rear view mirror, two-zone climate control and an upper secondary glovebox are also standard.
The Discovery Commercial is available in SE and HSE specifications across the 3.0 TD6 model. The price jump from the entry-level SE to the higher spec HSE version is €6,305.
