2016 Land Rover Discovery.jpg

Land Rover Discovery (L661). 2016 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door SUV. F/A, 1999 cm³ diesel (I4 DOHC), 2999 cm³ diesel, 2995 cm³ petrol (V6 DOHC). Third-generation (though Land Rover calls it the fifth) Discovery, based on the lighter Range Rover platform. Sleeker than before, with a more pronounced cab-backward look, while retaining a lot of the styling hallmarks, such as the stepped-up roof. Aluminium construction meant a weight saving of 480 kg. Seating for seven, configurable from a smartphone with a remote seat-folding app, even though the vehicle is under 5 m long. Ten-inch touchscreen on the dashboard, four 12 V charging points, and up to nine USB ports. Waterproof Activity Key wristband allowed owners to lock the car while enjoying the outdoors; traditional key could be left inside. ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox mated to three engines on launch, including the Ingenium four-cylinder diesel.


Manufacturing location: Solihull, West Midlands, England
