The Discovery facelift remains similar to its predecessor, though the exterior styling has been spiced up at a few places. The front fascia has been restyled to bring it in line with the latest iteration of the Discovery Spor. The eye-catching changes on the front is a new bumper, a restyled grille and headlamps featuring the LED Matrix tech on higher models. Towards the rear, the asymmetrical profile of the tailgate is carried over, though the design has been enhanced with a new bumper and a pair of reworked tail-lamps that sport bolder LED elements.
On the inside, the cabin reclaims the basic layout of the outgoing model, but with a few upgrades. Featuring on the centre is a new 11.4-inch touchscreen display. The Pivi Pro is shared with the recent crop of JLR models and is intuitive to operate than the 10.0-inch Touch Pro display it replaces. The air-conditioner panel is styled with new touch controls. Additionally, there is a new chunky, four-spoke steering similar to the one in the new Defender. The new seats got improved lateral support, longer and thicker cushions and a better seat profiling, all contributing to a greater under-thigh support and improved posture for the passengers.
