New, 2017, Discovery key features revealed plus Land Rover Approved Used Promise explained.
“7 Wonders” of this new, sports-utility, vehicle
The New, 2017, Land Rover Discovery is now in showrooms with a starting price of £43,495 and features “7 Wonders” that help it excel, the manufacturer said. The arrival of this new, sports-utility, model is – as motorists upgrade - likely to increase the number of its predecessor available via the Approved Used Promise that ensures peace of mind.
First the new vehicle, though. Consider Wonder 1: “The Magnificent 7”, for example. The Discovery has 7 full size seats – rather than smaller, less comfortable, seats in the rear – so everyone is comfortable throughout. Furthermore, the seats can be manoeuvred electrically/remotely via a smartphone app.
Wonder 2: “Much Loved Member of the Family” that has a sophisticated range of safety features. Autonomous Emergency Braking scans for hazards while travelling at between 3mph and 50mph. If a collision is likely and the driver fails to react to warnings, it brakes to avoid the accident or mitigate its severity.
Wonder 3: “King of the Hill” which is unstoppable whatever the terrain and weather conditions. The 2017 Land Rover Discovery incorporates the brand's “world-beating all-terrain capability”, it said. This complements a best-in-class 3,500KG towing capacity. Furthermore, Tow Assist autonomously steers while reversing a trailer. Simply pick a preferred line via a dial by the gear lever.
Wonder 4: “British Creativity”. New Discovery styling is an evolution of its predecessor and “designed with charm”, its manufacturer said.
Wonder 5: “Storage Addiction”. Cargo capacity is 2,342-litres with the middle/third row of seats flat. That is vast.
Wonder 6: “Connects Every Generation”. Equipped with USB ports, 12 volt charge points plus a wi-fi in car hotspot.
Wonder 7: “After The Roads End”. Land Rover confirmed that this latest incarnation of its sports-utility vehicle will continue its “humanitarian aid and conservation projects around the world”.
