One of the most outstanding aspects of the brand-new Land Rover Discovery is its interior
design,which was created to offer adult-size seating for seven.
When you’ve clambered thru the slightly narrow rear door aperture, you find yourself sitting in a correctly sized rear seat in both the second and third rows.What’s more,in contrast to the competitor Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90,the Discovery offers those in the third row plenty of head room, thanks to its stepped roofline, and even with the sliding
second row set in position for a six-footer, those behind still have
plenty of leg space.
With design cues from the full-sized Range Rover, the interior is much more luxurious than the
current car’s, with leather and soft plastics covering all the key touch points. An improved
infotainment system,great panoramic roof and a variety
of secret storage space also add a sense of class that was missing from the
earlier generation car.
We suspect that the absence of a split tail gate will be a main disappointment for some.Even so,the drop down boot panel (essentially,an internal tailgate) works very well,providing a shelf that can act as a seat or fold up to maintain cargo. And the third-row seats are simple to fold aside,allowing for vast amounts of
storage total capacity.
5th-generation Discovery provides much more space and far better fuel economy.
This fifth-generation type,which was introduced at last October’s Paris motor show, is lighter in weight,faster,and
more efficient than the model it replaces, despite being larger inside and out.It,as well,has much better ground
clearance and wading capacity thanks to several clever technological innovation.
The most amazing part of technology was All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC).Primarily,a type of off-road cruise control,
it enables the driver to set an proper crawling speed for low-grip situations,leaving you to
focus on the steering.It is a amazingly smart and effective system, and one that we can see being used to get owners out of sticky situations should they venture all terrain.
