Land Rover Discovery has undergone a facelift, and the tailgate gate has yet to be resolved. Land Rover sticks to tackle a disturbed trunk door. But it did come up with some new LED graphics, new wheel designs up to 22 inches wide, and some revised grille trim. The R-Dynamic kit now looks much sportier, it seems. But isn’t that what a Range Rover Sport is?
We digress. Inside, Discovery has undergone a much-needed infotainment overhaul, getting the latest 11.4-inch Pivi Pro touchscreen display with faster load times than before and over-the-air updates. There is an updated hardware screen behind the wheel, and a new display on the options menu. You are unlikely to have a shortage of information there.
Most of the engines are now mild hybrids, with 48-volt starter-generator technology on the P360 petrol six-engine in a row, both turbocharged six-engine engines, providing either 250hp or 300hp. The disco for beginners is a 300-hp four-cylinder non-hybrid petrol.
All models get air suspension as standard, adaptive four-wheel drive that shifts force around the wheel that can deploy better.
Available Terrain Response 2 Off-Road Technology which adds more settings, modes and intelligence to the muddy / sand / snow disco arsenal, the car can sense when wading in the water, help you park a trailer, and use cameras to “see through” the hood when climbing. Meanwhile, there is an automatic self-folding possibility for all seven seats and 3.5 tons can be towed.
In short, it is very difficult to think of a situation that the disco cannot easily overcome in this aspect of the Nürburgring, and it now has a better touchscreen than the Bentley Bentayga, while prices start at £ 53,000.
What makes you think (being sane for a second here) – is this all the SUV you could really need?
