Land Rover has unveiled its latest and most powerful SUV till date, the Discovery SVX, at the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show.  The new Land Rover model sits alongside the Range Rover Sport SVR and Range Rover SVAutobiography. The company claims that the Discovery is indeed the most extreme Land Rover to be produced till date and features increased ground clearance, body and suspension lifts, more wheel articulation and large all-terrain tyres.

Mechanically, the Land Rover Discovery SVX gets a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol powertrain that generates 518bhp of power and 625Nm of torque. The powerful engine comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with twin-speed transfer box. The vehicle gets a specially designed suspension setup for easy driving across tough terrains.  The Discovery SVX dynamics system includes Hill Descent Control, Electronic Traction Control (ETC), Adaptive Dynamics, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) and variable ratio electric power-assisted steering (EPAS). It also gets model-first Pistol Shifter in place of the Drive select rotary shifter to offer the driver optimum control over gear selection in off-road maneuvers.

Speaking about the Discovery SVX, Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer, said: “The combination of design excellence and engineering integrity inherent in every Land Rover is the foundation of everything we do. The Discovery SVX reinforces Land Rover’s unrivalled reputation for building vehicles with true all-terrain capability for customers who desire the ultimate in off-road performance.”
