The seven-seat 2023 Land Rover Discovery SUV has received a price hike of between $2040 and $3935, depending on the variant.

Pricing now starts at $103,915 before on-road costs for the entry-level Discovery S D300.

To compensate for this price hike, Land Rover is making a wireless charging pad standard across the range, along with its clever, wearable Activity Key which you can use to lock and unlock the doors. It’s also adding a standard black contrast roof on R-Dynamic variants.

This 2023 model year continues the recently simplified, repositioned model line-up with more standard equipment and fewer options.

Every Discovery model has an inline-six powertrain, either turbo-petrol or twin-turbo diesel, with a 48V mild-hybrid system.

Despite the price rise, the 2023 Discovery is still priced similarly to its Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE rivals.

A Jaguar Land Rover spokesperson said these 2023 Discovery models will arrive on Australian soil from April 2022.
