Discovery 3 has established a strong position as a premium, luxury, all-purpose vehicle since its launch, with an off-road pedigree which is unrivalled. The 2009 Land Rover Discovery 3 continues this theme with incorporation of eye-catching exterior revisions, new interior trims and specification upgrades.

The pure and clean exterior design of the Discovery 3 has been refined with a re-profiled front bumper which is now body coloured on all models, as well as a revised rear bumper and wheel arches, which are body coloured on SE and HSE models. The distinctive, asymmetric two-piece tailgate now comes with body coloured tailgate lift handle and clear-lens side indicators are standard across the range. The attention to detail continues with the revised "tungsten" coloured side vent and "tungsten" door, on the on SE and HSE models.

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 changes include a new "almond" leather trim colour as well as specification upgrades across the range.

Roger Jory, Land Rover Australia General Manager, comments; "With over 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 and build on the Discovery 3's unique position as one of the most versatile vehicles in the world. On-road refinement to rival executive saloons, flexibility to surpass people carriers and class-leading all terrain capability."
