Gerard O’Farrell, Managing Director Jaguar Land Rover Ireland said, “We are delighted to announce the arrival of the new Discovery at Land Rover retailers across the country. The New Discovery is set to broaden its well-established appeal in the large premium SUV market.
“ It does everything its predecessor does and more. With increased efficiency, improved versatility and clever technology for the whole family it is sure to attract new customers to the Land Rover brand.”
Since its star-studded reveal at Packington Hall, Solihull in September when the new Discovery was unveiled against a Guinness World Record-breaking Lego backdrop, the new Discovery was previewed in Dublin, Cork, and Galway before Christmas. New and existing customers were invited to see the ground-breaking new model for the first time.
Since then, customers have been able to experience the new Discovery though a Virtual Reality experience in retailer showrooms, but now, customers can see, touch and drive Ireland’s most anticipated SUV. With a starting price of €57,815 customers can experience the ‘seven wonders’ of Discovery:
