Town or country, Discovery 4 S is the smart, practical complement to the modern lifestyle. Superb drivability plus true Land Rover capability and versatility with electronic air suspension for a constant, level ride height. Sophisticated 19 inch seven-split spoke alloy wheels combine with Terrain Response® allowing smooth handling in tough conditions while the leather interior is available in Almond or ebony.



The 183kW LR-SDV6 3.0 diesel engine with eight-speed Drive Select transmission and steering wheel mounted Paddle Shift uses a sequential mode boosting system to increase the air density entering the engine’s cylinders. This enables a correspondingly greater amount of fuel to be injected for increased power output. It also uses the latest materials and sequential turbochargers to optimise responsiveness by delivering increased torque at very low engine revolutions.

Whatever the surface, Discovery 4 helps take it on with confidence. The Terrain Response® system, standard on Discovery 4s that have air suspension, gives access to over 60 years of Land Rover 4x4 expertise and state-of-the-art dynamic technology.

Dynamic performance on-road. Discovery 4 features advanced technology that helps keep the driver connected with the road and provides an enhanced, more engaged and entertaining drive. It makes getting behind the wheel and heading for the open road pure pleasure.

8-speed Automatic Transmission (includes Drive Select with Paddle Shift) 8-speed Automatic Transmission (includes Drive Select with Paddle Shift)

The Eight Speed Automatic Gearbox provides smooth transmissions and fast responses combined with improved fuel efficiency. Press the start button and the Drive Select Rotary Shifter rises from the centre console. The driver can also manually select gears via the Paddle Shift controls on the steering wheel.

Hill Descent Control (HDC) with Gradient Release Control (GRC) Hill Descent Control (HDC) with Gradient Release Control (GRC)

Hill Descent Control allows a smooth, controlled descent down difficult terrain without the need to use the brake or accelerator. Gradient Release Control enhances this by providing smoother, more gradual acceleration when confronted by a steep incline. It operates automatically whenever Hill Descent Control is engaged, temporarily maintaining brake pressure after you've released the brake pedal, then gradually increasing speed until your optimum off-road pace is attained.

Electronic air suspension and Terrain Response® Electronic air suspension and Terrain Response®

The air suspension can raise the ride height up to 125mm for extreme off-road use and also has an access mode that lowers the vehicle by 50mm for easier entry, exit and loading. The suspension delivers the most comfortable of rides. Its self-levelling feature yields outstanding handling and composure, working effortlessly with a wide range of vehicle loads. It also allows the vehicle height to be adjusted from outside the vehicle for trailer hitching, using the smart key buttons.
Land Rover’s patented Terrain Response® technology incorporates 60 years of our off-road expertise. The system optimises vehicle set-up for different terrain conditions and inspires supreme confidence over mud, gravel, grass, snow, and rocks, while delivering uncompromising performance on tarmac.
Terrain Response® also incorporates Sand Launch Control (SLC) and Rock Crawl (RC). Sand Launch Control helps prevent wheel spin and the vehicle ‘digging in’ when moving off from a standstill, while Rock Crawl delivers more vehicle composure by applying light brake forces.

Gradient Acceleration Control Gradient Acceleration Control

Gradient Acceleration Control (GAC) prevents situations where the vehicle might accelerate too quickly on a steep gradient (and Hill Descent Control (HDC) has not been selected). It allows the driver the time and opportunity to regain control and the system is always available (except when HDC is selected). GAC works without active intervention to limit the speed of the vehicle to 5kph in the driver’s intended direction of travel (i.e. descending forwards in drive or backwards in reverse) for between 20 and 30 seconds.

  • Centre Electronic Locking Differential
  • Permanent four-wheel-drive
  • Front/rear split and lockable central differentials
  • Diesel misfuelling device
  • Active rear locking differential
  • Hill Start Assist (HSA)

    On steep slopes Hill Start Assist (HSA) works automatically to allow the driver the time to move their foot from the brake to the throttle pedal without vehicle roll back. The system releases brake pressure in a controlled manner, to move the vehicle up the hill. HSA is always available and does not require active intervention to operate.

  • Active Roll Mitigation (ARM)

Tow Assist, as part of the surround Camera system*, is a next-generation reversing aid that predicts the rearward trajectory of both vehicle and trailer. This helps the driver perform more accurate manoeuvres and is selected from the Touch-screen menu. Wide-view cameras on the vehicle give a clear field of vision; guidelines are superimposed over the resulting image to highlight the predicted reversing path for vehicle and trailer.
*Available on HSE derivative only.

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Roll Stability Control (RSC) Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Roll Stability Control (RSC)

Dynamic Stability Control improves the vehicle’s handling during acceleration or cornering. It also helps compensate for vehicle handling when towing a trailer. By constantly monitoring the wheels, it detects any deviation from the chosen line and immediately corrects it by applying braking to appropriate wheels.

Roll Stability Control (RSC) works in conjunction with Dynamic Stability Control to help prevent vehicle roll-over. If the system senses that the vehicle is in danger of tipping, it will reduce engine power and use the ABS system to reduce the chance of roll-over.

Power assisted steering Power assisted steering
Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) Trailer Stability Assist (TSA)

Trailer Stability Assist automatically detects the presence of a trailer. Once 60km/h is reached, the sensors monitor the behaviour of the trailer. Should any swaying or oscillation occur, the system uses selective braking of the appropriate wheels to help correct any potential problem.
