2017 Land Rover Discovery 5 Specs, Release Date

The new 2017 Land Rover Discovery 5 comes with a new look that features some of the latest stylings. The seven-seat 4*4 SUV offers great off-road capability and is more spacious. The automobile will follow the path that has successfully been dominated by its four forerunners and will also headline one of Land Rover’s new brand. It battles its fierce SUV rivals in the market including the BMW X5, Audi Q7 and the Volvo XC90 with its major improvements. In an effort to be ahead of its rivals, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery 5 will feature an off-road technology that has laser scanning capability.

This system is designed to automatically adjust the transmission and suspension to their ideal settings for the road ahead. It also features another system that prevents the driver from scrapping the vehicle’s underside as it gives the driver the impression of a transparent bonnet by conveying the image of the road surface underneath the car onto the bonnet surface. It will have a terrain response system that will enable either automatic or manual tailoring of various settings based on different conditions.
