Known also as the ‘Disco’, the Discovery is a medium-sized premium SUV manufactured primarily by Land Rover and later Jaguar Land Rover.
The first series of the model was created in 1989 as a family car rather than as a utility vehicle, followed by a move into the premium/luxury market ever since.
The first series lasted from 1989 – 1998 and debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It was sold in the UK from October and was given the code name ‘Project Jay.’
The Discovery was based on an older upmarket Range Rover with which it shared the same chassis, suspension and 4-wheel drive configuration. First and foremost a family car, the Discovery launched as a 3-door with the 5-door following shortly after. All variants had 5 seats with the option to add 2 jump seats in the boot.
There was a brief update in 1994 and this was the model that was first released in Northern America. Land Rover had to add a system of airbags to comply with American safety standards.
The second series launched in 1998 with ‘720 modified differences’ according to Land Rover. This decision was made to make the vehicle even less of a utilitarian vehicle both in and out.
By 2017, the Discovery had a much more rounded and aerodynamic chassis which was launched on the Grounds of Pakington Hall near Meriden UK.
This new 3rd generation was built on the same platform as the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, making for a more modern but less practical vehicle. The variations were 5 seats, 7 seats and a commercial van in the UK, Ireland and Europe. The 2019 Discovery was the first one to be built outside of the UK with production moving to Slovakia.
