, Five have been generations that carry sold of this legendary off-road. The Land Rover Discovery turns 27 years and for this 2017, is renewed in full. It is now bigger than ever, more advanced and has a much more dynamic design. But… is it still “the Discovery” such a good car off the road? Will it have lost their identity to give way to the design of a continuation of the brand inaugurated with the Evoque?
Something more than 1.2 million units have been sold worldwide, and the fruit of their success is due to the great balance, which provides on and off the road. That innovative system, the Terrain Response who introduced the Discovery Series III was a twist to his excellent performance offroad. What is the “As saved under the sleeve” Land Rover to captivate with the renovation of their new model?
As insinuábamos, apparently, the new Discovery seems to change a little your outside line with respect to other models of the brand (such as the Evoque, the Discovery Sport, and even the own Range Rover Sport). If we are going to the details, we realize that, with the passing of the years, stays true to your style. The roof presents a small step in the middle of the battle, guards in the wheel arches, the rear door with the tuition slightly shifted to the left,… are without doubt, some of the many nuances that Land Rover wanted to leave the patent in this model.
Unquestionably, it is now much more efficient dynamically. Its drag coefficient is of 0,33 Cx; their weight has been reduced up to 480Kg for the lighter version thanks to the use of aluminium in its construction; the consumption is lowered from 9.3 L/100Km of the version 3.0TDV6 to 7.2 L/100Km. Now presents a air suspension more advanced, a completely new platform and the system Terrain Response II unprecedented in the brand. Interestingly, Land Rover has wanted, has the difference with the previous model (which was notable for its character offRoad), the new Discovery present a marked trend towards the ride comfort. That is to say, “your mirror is your elder brother,the Range Rover.
if this were not enough, Land Rover has wished to surprise us even more; designing a rear spoiler which air flow allows the tailgate does not get dirty so easily. The Auto Acces Height, allows to reduce the height of the car at 40mm; the provision of 7 seats whose height gradually increases toward the rear seats to improve visibility; the Drive Assist, which consists of two screen (located in the lower part of each rear-view mirror) that allows you to see obstacles or outside the helps the trailer are some of the most advanced systems that make the Discovery one of the vehicles more versatile of the market.
As could not be otherwise, the interior “is not short”. Much of the technology is inherited from the own Range Rover and another is directly implanted from the F-Pace. InControl Touch Pro (the most advanced connectivity in a screen of 10.2″); Activity Key, Wifi connection, function folding smart seats and a host of options to delight drivers more foodies. This is not, at the mercy of the fund in our portfolio…
