The JLR is sprucing up its automobile portfolio with the new 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX. The upcoming SUV has been unveiled at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show. It will be sold along with siblings Range Rover SV Autobiography and Range Rover Sport SVR.
The SVX is special in several ways. In fact, it is going to be the first vehicle from JLR stable that will get hand assembled by veteran craftsmen at the UK SVO Technical Centre of JLR.
The upcoming 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX is going to be the most ruggedly built Land Rover ever- as per the claims made by the company. From the exterior styling, its ruggedness is evident. There is a LED bar on its top and the vehicle also gets an aggressive bumper.
The Discovery SVX gets satin Tectonic Grey paint with Rush Orange accents scattered throughout the body. However, its Narvik Black Dynamic grille along with Silver roof rails adds to the visual oomph. There are protective skid plates under the bumpers. The JLR has also used all-terrain tires by Goodyear Wrangler and 20-inch wheels. It will be sold in trims- SE, HSE and HSE Luxury.
The cabin is also built with utility in mind. The seats get special fabric and floor mats. The dashboard gets a 12.3-inch Driver Display instrument cluster along with 10-inch touchscreen display unit. The latter is meant for controlling the entertainment features.
While JLR has made the Discovery SVX as an off-road centric vehicle, there should be enough amenities and top-notch safety features. Some trims will get embedded 4G Wifi. The Touch pro infotainment system has been used and you can opt for premium quality Meridian audio systems. Optional amenities include Rear Seat Entertainment System.
There are also plenty of airbags in the cabin. Apart from that, you get safety features like Lane Keep Assist, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Assist, Surround camera setup and also an Adaptive cruise control.
Powering the upcoming 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX is a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine. Furthermore, it churns out 518 horsepower, aided by an eight-speed automatic transmission unit. To enhance off-road prowess JLR has packed in Hydraulic Active Roll Control. Features like All-Terrain Progress Control 2 and hill descent control are there too.
Its aluminum monocoque architecture along with four-corner air suspension setup helps absorb the bumps and potholes with aplomb. The vehicle is also laden with Dynamic Stability Control and Electronic Traction Control. The JLR says the car can reach 60 mph from 0 in only 5.6 seconds. The standard towing capacity is 3.500kg. Also, an optional wade depth sensing feature is available.
The exact price of 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX is unknown but it should be priced above its siblings. It will reach showrooms for sale in late 2018.
The 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX is an important vehicle for the iconic British car manufacturer. The styling is menacing and also attractive. It gets a very powerful engine and enough safety features to conquer off-road with ease.
