Land Rover India has listed the 2021 Discovery on its India website. And the British SUV maker has revealed all the details as well. The facelifted SUV is likely to be launched by the early next quarter

Jaguar Land Rover India has listed the facelift Discovery on its official website that confirms the launch of the 2021 model soon. The 2021 Land Rover Discovery could be following the launch of the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace in India. However, given the pandemic situation and the nationwide panic regarding medical assistance, the launch is likely to be delayed. The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace could be launched in the month of July along with the 2021 Discovery.
