The new 2009 Land Rover Discovery 3 goes on sale in the UK in August, priced from £29,950. The eye-catching exterior revisions for 2009 add fresh refinement to the acclaimed exterior design – incorporating new front and rear body colour bumpers, body coloured wheel arches and revised exterior detailing.

The pure and clean exterior design has been refined with a re-profiled front bumper, (body coloured on all models), and revised rear bumper and wheel arches, which are body coloured (standard on all passenger carrying derivatives). The distinctive, asymmetric two-piece tailgate now comes with body coloured tailgate lift handle and the attention to detail continues with the revised ‘tungsten’ coloured side vent, ‘tungsten’ door handles, and clear-lens side repeaters across the range.

A new 19-inch 7-spoke wheel style and three new exterior metallic paint colours – Santorini Black, Galway Green and Bournville [black with a hint of brown] – complete the exterior changes for 2009. Interior upgrades include a new ‘almond’ trim colour and an updated Bluetooth system.

John Edwards, Land Rover UK managing director, comments; “With almost 100 international awards to date, the Land Rover Discovery 3 has earned itself a reputation as the ultimate all purpose vehicle. The latest revisions add to an already class-leading package, building on the Discovery 3’s unique position as one of the most versatile vehicles on the market.”

The new 2009 Discovery 3 receives its UK debut at the British International Motor Show which opens on 23 July, 2008.
