2009 Land Rover Discovery 3: Subtle Tweaks

Unless you own a Discovery3 (called LR3 in the North American market) or you work for Land Rover, we seriously doubt that you’ll notice any differences between the 2009 and 2008 model year cars. But that’s why we’re here. So, compared to the 2008 MY version, the updated Discovery 3 features re-profiled front bumper, (body colored on all models), and revised rear bumper and wheel arches, which are body colored on higher trim levels. Additional changes include the body colored tailgate lift handle, the revised “tungsten” colored side vent, “tungsten” door handles on higher trim levels, and clear-lens side repeaters across the range. Land Rover also offers a new set of 19-inch 7-spoke alloy wheels along with – you guessed it- three new exterior metallic paint colors – Santorini Black, Galway Green and Bournville and a new a new “almond” trim color for the cabin. -Continued There’s no official announcement on when the 2009 Land Rover Discovery 3 will go on sale in the States, but in the UK at least, it will be available this August, priced from £29,950.
