Launched this week in spectacular fashion, which included a replica Tower Bridge constructed from five million Lego bricks, Land Rover replaces its Discovery 4 with a new model.

 

Simply named ‘Discovery,’ models will be available from spring 2017. In total, four specifications levels are available, from S to HSE Luxury, offering a £43,495 to £62,695 price range. For an additional £5,600, you could get yourself one of 600 special edition models coming to the UK.

Three engines are available across the range; a four-cylinder, 240hp diesel offering 500Nm toque, a V6 diesel with 258hp and 600Nm, and a 340hp V6 petrol, for those with heavy wallets.

 

Following in the footsteps of the Range Rover, the latest Discovery has been on a health kick, shedding 480kg thanks to its aluminium construction, helping drop 0-62mph time by over a second, and improve claimed fuel consumption by a couple of mpg.

 

Despite its softer and more rounded appearance, off road capabilities look promising. Ground clearance has been upped 43mm over the previous Discovery, as has its maximum wading depth, now up to 900mm - the car’s on-board computer will let you know when you get out of its depth, literally.

 

For the horse and caravanning societies, the manufacturer offers a trailer reversing assistance system. Using the car’s rotary controller to direct the car, the driver controls throttle and brakes while the on-board computer calculates trailer trajectory and operates the steering wheel to get the trailer in the desired position.
