The fifth generation of Discovery is more desirable than ever.2017 sees the arrival of the fifth generation of Land Rover Discovery. As comfortable on the road as off the beaten track, this 4×4 is a success.
When talking about SUVs, how about not quoting Land Rover? The creator of the Range Rover has just offered the fifth generation to the Discovery, a high-end model capable of swallowing mountains and mountains, unlike many competitors! However, is that enough?
An SUV, a real one
Take an Audi Q7 or a Lexus RX. These are excellent vehicles, for sure, but they lack one thing: off-road capabilities. To combine style and robustness, one must turn to safe values. There is, of course, the Lada 4×4, but its mauls of 10 000 dollars could dissuade you.
Otherwise, to find his happiness, you can trust Land Rover. Especially since the specialist of the high-end SUV offered a new, line to his Discovery. The style evolves taking inspiration from other models of the brand, including the Eloqua for the front. The set exudes quality but also the previous versions. Because yes, the first Discovery came out in 1989!

At Land Rover, the interior is always neat. The Discovery 5 does not deviate from the rule. Noble leather, wire colors, subtle and well-designed lines, soft seating. What more?
Add to this rich equipment, with a large central screen, seven armchairs fully adjustable electrically, armrests, USB and HDMI jacks, six 12V sockets and even Wi-Fi. Yes, we are talking about a car.
So of course, this is felt on the basic tariff starting at 54,000 dollars Also on the few options like the head-up display at 1,340 dollars or the front/back parking assistance to more than 1,600 dollars, In the end, even the center console refrigerated to 370 dollars seems accessible…
No car is perfect. This Discovery 5 will not be the exception. Under its hood, no gasoline engine, nor hybrid or electric. It will, therefore, be satisfied with mechanical Diesel.
While this engine is more and more controversial, it is regrettable to have to “undergo” a 240-horsepower 4-cylinder fuel or a 258-horsepower V6 diesel. We hope that engines that are more interesting will arrive later, because this new Land Rover is very seductive, with a more assertive style, an enriched equipment, and good off-road abilities despite a total mass exceeding 2.3 tons. No, no one is perfect.
