The New Land Rover Discovery 3 Interior

"The cabin was the starting point for the creation of the Discovery 3," says Land Rover design director Geoff Upex. "It was designed from the inside out. Maximum cabin space and comfort dictated the entire form of the vehicle."

As a result, the Discovery 3 offers outstanding space and versatility.

Class-Leading Interior

In every major dimension, the new vehicle's interior is either class-leading or among the very best. Compared with the outgoing Discovery model, the major improvements are in legroom, shoulder room, and third-row headroom. The Discovery 3 has an extremely spacious third row of seats (where fitted) – large enough for 95th percentile adults – underlining its superiority as a seven-seater. The wide doors are designed to ensure easy cabin and boot access.

Second and third seat rows can fold right down into the floor, enabling the Discovery 3 to transform into a luxury load-carrier with a flat floor and vast capacity.

Seating Comfort Plus Extraordinary Versatility

The vehicle can be specified with either two or three rows of seats, giving space for five or seven adults respectively. All seats face forwards and provide a head restraint and full lap-and-diagonal inertia reel seatbelt. ‘Stadium seating’ means that each row is higher than the one in front, improving the view for all passengers, helped by the deep glazing. The stepped roof ensures plenty of headroom throughout.

All seats are large and comfortable, and higher level Discovery 3 models come with leather upholstery. Both outer seats in the second row are equipped with Isofix attachment points for European-standard and North American child seats.
