The All New Land Rover Discovery was launched in Gaborone last week Thursday.
The glitzy event was held at Molapo Crossing shopping centre where potential customers and members of the Press witnessed the unveiling of one of the most important models in the Land Rover line up.
Land Rover Gaborone gave both customers and the press an opportunity to get acquainted with the All New Discovery as three examples of the SUV were made available at the launch. The three models available in the local market include the entry level SE Diesel, TDV6 HSE diesel and the top of the range 3.0 HSE petrol.
The latest entry to the company’s impressive model line up embodies Land Rover’s drive to go Above and Beyond, combining British desirability with an unstoppable spirit of adventure. It’s an authentic, three-row, seven-seat SUV with unbeatable capability and versatility.
“Everyday ingenuity has been at the heart of the Discovery for the last 27 years. All-New Discovery signals the transformation from cogs to code with more than 1.2 million customers with us on every step of the journey,” a statement from Land Rover SA reads.
“The fifth-generation model benefits from Land Rover’s strong, safe and light full-size SUV architecture, delivering comfort and adaptability like no other. The All-New Discovery is for the digital age. Ingenious technology keeps your family safe, connected and confident on all surfaces, all terrains and in all weathers to ensure your destination is reached.”
The optional Dynamic Design Pack gives All-New Discovery a more purposeful, stealth-like appearance both inside and out, with features including a contrast roof, athletic front and rear bumper designs, luxurious leather upholstery and a sports-inspired steering wheel and pedals setting it apart.
All-New Discovery provides world-first Intelligent Seat Fold technology, allowing customers to reconfigure the second and third-row seats with minimal effort using controls at the rear of the vehicle or the central touch screen. All three rows are available with heated seats – heated and cooled in rows one and two – while massage seats are available for the driver and front passenger to optimise comfort on long journeys. All-New Discovery retains renowned Land Rover all-terrain capability thanks to its combination of excellent off-road geometry and advanced technology, while improving its everyday usability. Price ranges between P900 000 and P1 300 000.
