In India, Land Rover has begun taking reservations for the Discovery Metropolitan. This seven-seater SUV, which starts at Rs 1.26 crore, comes with fresh updates and cutting-edge technologies.

The new Metropolitan trim is the Discovery family’s flagship model, and it’s based on the R-Dynamic HSE standard with Bright Atlas grille and Discovery script decoration. The front grille is complemented by Hakuba Silver inlays on the lower bumper. The new model comes with 20-inch Satin Dark Grey alloy wheels, all-terrain tyres, and black brake callipers. The front of the car has a huge glass roof that doubles as a sunroof, while the back has a permanent panoramic top.

An 11.4-inch touchscreen entertainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Artificial intelligence, a navigation system with 2D and 3D maps, automated updates, and live traffic information occupies the cabin’s centre panel. A Meridian surround sound system with 14 speakers and a dual-channel subwoofer, a 12.3-inch digital driver’s dashboard, wireless charging with phone signal booster, front cooler box, four-zone climate control, and heated steering wheel are all included.

The Discovery Metropolitan includes 20-way heated and cooled front powered seats with a centre armrest as standard equipment. The second and third rows of this flexible SUV can also be folded totally hands-free thanks to clever seat fold technology. In the cabin, this model receives extra Mesh trim detailing. The Metropolitan model has in-cabin air purification with PM2.5 air filtration to combat the ever-challenging air quality.

The Metropolitan comes with two powertrain options: the P360, a 3.0-litre, six-cylinder petrol engine with 355 hp and 500 Nm of torque, and the D300, a 3-litre diesel engine with 296 hp and 650 Nm of torque. Both engines are connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The Discovery fights in India against European rivals including the Audi Q7, BMW X5, and Volvo XC90. The Land Rover SUV will also face up against the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which will be released later this year.
