The 2017 Land Rover LR5 is one of the newest offerings from the company. Marking a new generation, this model has been infested with several changes both inside out. Improving from its predecessor, this new Land Rover LR5 2017 doesn’t inherit the square profile and instead has a smooth and round profile.
One of the biggest improvements in this model would be the PLA (Premium Lightweight Architecture) which seems to have been borrowed from Range Rover Sport. All in all, this new Land Rover LR5 is now lighter, faster and more efficient as the platform has been constructed out of aluminium and 43% of the material is recycled.
2017 Land Rover LR5 – Exterior Body and Interior Cabin
Although this new 2017 Land Rover LR5 looks significantly different from its predecessors, it still bears that old practicality that has made way for great success. Starting with its front fascia, the headlights are new as they incorporate LED daytime running lights.
These headlights are then joined by a completely new grille that has the signature mesh pattern. Things get interesting down below as the front bumper has been extended upwards. This is followed by a robust skid plate that adds an off-road statement.
Adding more adventurous characteristic is the broad tires. Moving on, the side body seems to be aerodynamically constructed. The makers have also concentrated on C-pillar to bring more headroom for the 3rd row.
The rear fascia of this 2017 LR5 seems to be typical of what Land Rover has been doing with their latest models. A large ‘DISCOVERY’ badge of black colour has been placed on the tailgate. The taillights also feature a new design. Its new look is completed by a broad rear bumper.
Interior cabin of this 2017 Land Rover LR5 is what gets the most changes. Improvements seem to have taken way overboard in this cabin. One of the most important highlights would be the intuitive controls that increase driver’s convenience.
This interior cabin also proves to be a nest of technological features. To give such an example, the second and third seats can be flipped electronically with a remote to increase the cargo space.
Several charging sockets have been featured along with USB ports. To conquer on different terrains, All-Terrain Progress Control has been featured.
