The new Land Rover Discovery will also be produced in Slovakia

Land Rover Discovery 2017

At the end of the last month of September, during the Paris motor show, the Land Rover Discovery 2017 makes its first appearance in public. This is an important innovation for the british brand, and that is that the renewal of this SUV of large dimensions has been very full, giving it a lot of technology and incorporating a large number of modifications with respect to its predecessor.

in Addition to all the technology visible in the field of systems of infotainment, settings, and connectivity with the outside, it is worth noting the technology is not visible used for its development and construction. One of the more surprising is that the new Land Rover Discovery can be up to 480 pounds lighter than its predecessor thanks among, other things, the use of aluminum in its body; almost half a ton, which is said soon. This will have an impact on its dynamic behavior, as well as the fuel consumption and pollutant emissions expelled by the exhaust.
