Ahead of its official launch on September 28, fresh reports have indicated that the new seven-seat Discovery will get Intelligent Seat Fold technology along with other interesting features. The new technology will allow new Discovery owners to adjust the seats remotely from anywhere in the world. Customers need to install the InControl Remote app in their smartphone. This allows the user to customise the seating arrangement in just about 14 seconds, thereby eliminating the need to manually adjust them.

The app allows the owner to change the settings for the second and third row seats in the upcoming model. Additionally, the seats can also be adjusted via switches located in the luggage area, C-Pillar or using the main touchscreen display system. Land Rover’s Intelligent Seat Fold technology is yet another value added option from the automaker which intends on further easing things for the owner. To demonstrate its effectiveness, the company had roped in popular 42-year-old adventurer Bear Grylls, who was asked to skydive from a plane and adjust the seat as required.

More details about the 2017 Land Rover Discovery has not been revealed, however it is expected to weigh much lower and offer better fuel efficiency and handling than the older generation model. The fifth generation model is expected to come with new four-cylinder diesel and petrol Ingenium engines. Post launch it is expected to compete against the likes of the Audi Q7 and the Volvo XC90.
