The grille and Matrix headlamps are new while the R-Dynamic trim adds more drama with its gloss black finish and triple-slats on the side vents

For the 2021 model year, the new Land Rover Discovery facelift receives a nip and tuck through the exterior design. Updates include a restyled front grille to bring it more in-line with the Discovery family. The new Matrix LED headlamps with LED daytime running lights are new and the signature pattern is replicated with the redesigned LED taillights as well. At the rear, the SUV sports a full-width darkened tailgate trim panel incorporating the asymmetrical registration plate recess and connects the new taillights. Do note that the Discovery badge has been shifted here from the body panel, as seen on the older model. The bumpers have been reworked as well with the redesigned front sporting new side air vents that get new horizontal slats, while there's a new skid plate and gloss black finish that brings a sporty touch. The rear bumper also receives a similar update that helps hide the visual bulk and the overall design makes for a planted look on the SUV.

The dashboard has been redesigned on the Discovery facelift and the centre console now gets haptic touch buttons

Inside, the 2021 Land Rover Discovery gets comprehensive changes. Primary upgrades include the new PiviPro user user interface with Over-The-Air (OTA) updates, which made its debut with the all-new Defender. The new user interface is supported by a 11.4-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system that the company says is 48 per cent larger and three times brighter than the one on the older model. The system comes with a host of new features like the 3D surround camera that also includes the new ClearSight Ground View that employs cameras under the car to give you a good look at the path, between the front wheels. The centre console also gets new haptic touch buttons, which is something we saw with the updated Discovery Sport as well, while there's also the new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster that promises more data and is less distracting when on the move.

The 2021 Land Rover Discovery gets improved third row space, while cushioning has improved for the second row seats

The new Land Rover Discovery facelift also comes with better third row space thanks to a reshaped second-row bench seat that also gets better cushioning for added comfort. The second row is adjustable as well with up to 160 mm travel. The second and third row seats can be electrically folded in just 12 seconds, which liberates up to 2485 litres of boot capacity in the car. It reduces to 1231 litres in the five-seater mode, and further goes down to 258 litres in the seven-seater mode.
