Bear Gryllis Demonstrates New Land Rover Discovery Smart Seats

September 20th, 2016 by

In addition to its outstanding off-road performance and robust powertrains, Land Rover has been ahead of the game for a long time when it comes to innovative luxury features and premium technology. The automaker is proving this to be true yet again as it teases the release of an all-new Land Rover Discovery. Find out what’s in store for the model, including a new smart seat system, by following along with Land Rover Fort Myers.

Land Rover Discovery Smart Seats

Perhaps the most noteworthy aspect of Land Rover introducing a new Land Rover Discovery model is that it will incorporate a smart seat feature, which will let drivers control their vehicle’s seats from anywhere via the Land Rover InControl Remote app. This app gives drivers the ability to change up the cabin’s layout, converting the Discovery from a two-seater with lots of cargo space to a passenger-friendly set up with three rows of seats for up to seven. Land Rover says this can be completed in as little as 14 seconds. The cabin’s configuration can also be altered through the infotainment system’s touchscreen, located in the main dashboard.

How the Smart Seats Were Presented

Land Rover showcased how these smart seats work in a video featuring Bear Gryllis, who tests the functionality while jumping out of a plane in an effort to demonstrate how the seats can be reconfigured from—well, just about anywhere. In the video, Gryllis rearranges the seats of the Land Rover Discovery through a smartphone strapped to his arm while he free-falls to Earth, taking the seats in the cabin that were flush to the floor to pop up to accommodate seven people in total. In the end, Gryllis and his team pack into the Discovery and drive away.
