New Land Rover Discovery 5 First Look: New Land Rover Discovery 5
The latest Land Rover Discovery was only unveiled in September 2016 and won’t be on sale to Spring 2017, but RMS Motoring grabbed a first look
The fifth generation Discovery breaks with tradition by moving away from the angular, squared off design of previous models. The front is more sculpted and slippery and clearly shares a number of design cues with it’s incredibly popular Range Rover and Evoque stable mates. The end result is the most aerodynamic Discovery to date with a drag coefficient of only 0.33. It’s also much, much lighter, thanks to adopting Land Rovers all aluminum construction.
Inside, the Discovery has been designed to have class leading cabin space. It will seat seven full sized adults with ease, however the boot space suffers. Folding the seats back, using the Discovery’s phone app ( yes, really! – in car touchscreen controls are also available or you can use the old fashioned handle method) relinquishes almost two-thirds more space – room for all that weekend luggage.
