The Evolution of the Land Rover Discovery

The new Land Rover Discovery arrives with plenty of seating space, an abundance of high-tech features and an appetite for off-roading. Whether you are a suburban parent, an unmarried adventurer or an urban dweller, you will obtain considerable utility from the 2017 Land Rover Discovery. The latest version of this highly successful model is sold in three trims: SE, HSE and HSE Luxury.

The Space You Need

One of the best selling points of the new Land Rover Discovery is its considerable space. This year’s Discovery has enough space to accomodate upwards of seven full-grown adults. If you are the head of a family, a business owner or an outdoors enthusiast, you will find that this year’s Discovery has enough space for just about anything or anyone you need to transport.

Take on the Greater Outdoors in the new Discovery

Though the ’17 Discovery looks pretty swanky on the exterior, it isn’t all about eye-popping style and luxurious niceties. Hop on in the new Discovery and you will have the brute force you need to reach distant remote locations in the woods, the hills and everywhere in between. This year’s Discovery has all-terrain capabilities that are unrivaled by competitors aside from Land Rover’s own line of sport utility vehicles. The Discovery has a special Terrain Response System to help maneuver rocky off-road terrain. There’s also 19 or 20-inch wheels (they differ by trim), a navigation system, air suspension and even a trailer assist system that empowers you to easily drive in reverse with a trailer attached. There is also a special cruise control mode designed for off-roading so drivers can center their focus on steering rather than speed. The engineering geniuses at Land Rover have even gone as far as optimizing the Discovery’s suspension geometry to boost its off-road performance.
