Introducing the Land Rover Discovery Commercial
Practical enough for every day needs and flexible enough for various business demands, whilst offering high levels of refinement and safety features to be suitable for a range of requirements. The Land Rover Discovery Commercial is guaranteed to make an excellent business vehicle, whilst it is also suitable to use as an everyday vehicle.
Of course, if you are looking for a family SUV, that will not be used for business purposes, there is the standard Discovery.
Design elements such as the lockable underfloor storage and the ability to carry heavy loads, with a maximum 784kg payload, or tow up to 3,500kg; make the Discovery Commercial the perfect business companion, whatever the job.
You may have gathered the Discovery Commercial's forte is, in fact, its practicality and versatility. With an outstanding load space of up to 2,024 litres, plus up to 74 litres of lockable underfloor stowage, there is plenty of space for packing everything needed for a job.
Integrated non-slip, heavy-duty, removeable load space mats protect the rear compartment of the vehicle, whilst six fixed lashing points are available to secure a load.
Ultra-bright headliner lights are fitted to assist with loading or unloading the vehicle when you have got an early start or a late finish.
Inside the cabin there are plenty more handy areas, for storing smaller items, as well as hooks and nets for paperwork or workwear. There are also deep-sided rubber mats to prevent muddy boots interfering with the comfortable, yet robust, interior.
Just like the standard Discovery, the Discovery Commercial is fitted with the latest driver assistance technologies and safety features.
Smartphone integration is essential for many businesses and fortunately this is included as standard within the intuitive Pivi Pro infotainment system that also features all-new intelligent navigation, live traffic information and Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) radio.
Safety features are in abundance with the Discovery Commercial, which is great when driving in unfamiliar areas. Lane Keep Assist, Cruise Control and Speed Limiter as well as the Blind Spot Assist Pack all feature as standard.
Off-roading has also been made a simpler task thanks to ClearSight Ground View, which essentially enables drivers to see 'through' the bonnet to remove any blind spots where the terrain could prove challenging.
A single efficient and powerful diesel engine is available with the Discovery Commercial range that features Land Rover's intelligent mild hybrid technology.
The turbocharged 3.0-litre 6-cylinder unit delivers an impressive 296bhp, whilst returning up to 31.9mpg.
Thanks to the 48V mild hybrid system, energy that is usually lost during decelerating is harvested and stored until it can be redeployed to support engine acceleration.
Slippery surfaces, such as grass and snow, are no issue for the Discovery Commercial as Land Rover's intelligent all-wheel drive system is able to balance the torque between the front and rear wheels to maximise traction and prevent sliding.
Capable of being the perfect business partner for any task, the Discovery Commercial is a tremendously practical and versatile SUV.
Despite being suitable for carrying cumbersome items in the large load space and being prepared to tackle any terrain, the Discovery Commercial provides a refined and comfortable drive with all the modern technology you would expect from a Land Rover vehicle.
