WHO NEEDS a muscular pick-up when you can have a stylish go-anywhere ‘van’ with prestige driver systems: the new ultra-versatile Land Rover Discovery Commercial on sale today.

It keeps the profile of an upmarket five-door SUV but it’s a go-anywhere AWD workhorse with the bonus of the van BIK tax so for those on the 40% tax rate it’s less than £108 a month as a company car.

And although it tops £40,000 there’s no premium VED levy for the early years rates, just the standard van rate of £240, first year and subsequent years

Featuring 1,856 litres of flexible load space replacing the second and third row seats, the new Discovery promises driver and passenger premium levels of comfort and entertainment.

Available with Land Rover’s Ingenium 2.0D SD4 240HP and 3.0D TD6 258HP engines, Discovery Commercial shares the fundamental underpinnings of the Discovery.

From its wide-spaced double-wishbone design at the front to its advanced multi-link layout at the rear, the Discovery Commercial’s suspension delivers more responsive handling without compromising Land Rover’s hallmark all-terrain capability and makes all journeys confident, comfortable and engaging.

Discovery Commercial features all standard:

  • InControl Touch Pro,
  • Cruise control and speed limiter,
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking,
  • Lane Departure Warning,
  • Heated windscreen and rear window,
  • Heated door mirrors,
  • DAB radio,
  • InControl Protect,
  • Tyre Pressure Monitoring system,
  • Hill Launch Assist,
  • Dynamic Stability Control,
  • Roll Stability Control,
  • Cornering Brake Control,
  • Gradient Acceleration Control,
  • Hill Descent Control and Trailer Stability Assist .

Discovery Commercial comes exclusively with four wheel drive, automatic transmission, twin-speed transfer box, air suspension and a full-size spare wheel. Fitted solely with Discovery’s front row seating; driver comfort and convenience remain unchanged with InControl Touch Pro featuring as standard.

The second and third row seating have been replaced with 1,856 litres of hard-wearing load-space.

Accessed by a powered tailgate and Discovery’s innovative powered inner tailgate, Discovery Commercial’s load-space measures 1,635mm long, 939mm high and 1,411mm wide. The boot aperture is large enough to accept loads measuring up to 1000 x 735mm.

Discovery Commercial comes with Land Rover’s unique Terrain Response systems which optimise the vehicle’s engine, gearbox, centre differential and chassis systems to match the demands of the terrain. Optional Terrain Response 2 system enhances this even further by monitoring driving conditions and automatically selecting the driving modes ensuring loads are delivered whatever the terrain, whatever the weather.

Retaining the exterior design of Discovery, rear window concealment panels are masked by privacy glass so Discovery Commercial can be undistinguishable as a commercial vehicle if desired.

To launch the Discovery Commercial, Land Rover teamed up with Bloom & Wild, experts in packaging and delivering fresh flowers to letterboxes across the country. The new Discovery Commercial, wrapped in Bloom & Wild livery hauled 300 mini Christmas trees back to the UK from their farm in the Netherlands in time for the festive season.

Jaguar Land Rover UK managing director Jeremy Hicks said: “Discovery Commercial has always been a key part of the Discovery line-up since the Discovery 1, but the latest version brings new levels of practicality, versatility and premium levels of comfort that showcase the vehicle’s hard-working DNA.”

Priced from £48,695 on the road (with VAT at £8,066.67), Discovery Commercial is available in S, SE and HSE available with both 2.0 SD4 and 3.0 TD6 engines.
