We had carried a brief review of the Land Rover Discovery concept, which is supposed to be unveiled today at the New York motor show. The internet however has stolen the march here and the vehicle is seen in its resplendent glory on the world wide web. The new concept unveils a new design language, from which the Discovery family will cater to four new SUVs in future, taking the 25 years old nameplate to sister brands like Range Rover and the Freelander series, which are also under parent Land Rover.

The first production model with the new design language will be a replacement of the current Freelander SUV. The new model will utilise the Range Rover Evoque platform and will make its entry in international markets before the end of ongoing year. Meanwhile, a whole new Discovery series is being developed to take on the likes of the Toyota Land Cruiser. These will be positioned in between of Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport.

The Concept shown in the images seems quite modern but retains the original character of Land Rover vehicles. With sharp detailing and a more upright design language, the production models from the new Discovery family will be impressive with iconic styling elements like wide body-colored C-pillar and a razor-shaped registration plate housing from the current-generation Discovery.  Swept back headlamps, tail lamps with the grille pattern and other styling cues from the Range Rover family will leave you with no doubt as to its roots. Featuring a seven-seat layout in 2+3+2 seating arrangement, that can be changed seating configurations of 5 or 4 seats will further enhance flexibility.

The new Concept will also showcase the interesting developments like a Transparent Bonnet Virtual display system that projects the terrain on a display incorporated in bonnet through a set of cameras installed in front and underbody of the car. This next generation technology will come with innovative glass technology that is installed on the concept's roof and as its windscreens. It tracks gesture and swiping movements over itself and passes light accordingly. The windscreens can also be used as a rear view camera display as per the convenience of the driver.
