The all-new Land Rover Discovery made a grand entrance at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

Replacing the LR4, the new Discovery gives up some of its traditional boxy design for more streamlined styling. But perhaps one of the most notable changes is the fact that it weighs 1,000 pounds less than the outgoing LR4, taking advantage of lightweight aluminum to shed weight. Powertrain options include a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 with 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque or a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 with 254 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. The only transmission option is an eight-speed automatic.

Inside, there’s three rows of seating and the industry-first new seat folding system that allows people to configure the second and third row of seats using controls at the rear of the SUV on a touchscreen or remotely through an app. All three rows can also be had with available heated seats, while the first two rows can also be cooled.

The 2018 Land Rover Discovery will arrive dealerships in mid-2017 and will start just shy of $50,000 in the U.S.
