The all-new Land Rover Discovery 3 goes on sale from 1 November 2004 and will be priced from £26,995 to £46,995.
Residual Value (RV) data on Guaranteed Minimum Future Values (GMFV), also released today, shows an improved residual value performance for the Discovery 3 over its predecessor. The TDV6 SE was also compared to key rivals within the sector, and based on 36 months at 12,000 miles per annum, the Discovery 3 scored a GMFV of 54.6%.
Whole life cost information derived from the GMFV data also shows a 42% reduction in the cost of ownership of the Discovery 3 compared to the out-going model.
Phil Popham, Land Rover UK managing director, said: “We are delighted with the cost of ownership research carried out across the large SUV sector at this early stage in the Discovery 3’s retail life. Early signals suggest we are about to enter the market with a winner, and with its smart interior packaging, innovative technology and refinement and performance to rival anything in the sector, our UK dealer network is itching to get the Discovery 3 into showrooms.”
