When I think Discovery, I think practicality and oddball design. Looking at the previous generations and especially at certain areas of the SUV, you could clearly see where form followed function. This generation has done well at making those areas less obvious, though overall it does still look odd. Thin-ish horizontal front and rear light clusters make it look tall from the back and rather lardy from the front – with help from the sporty front bumper etc. From the sides, the curved C pillar and rounded upward rear bumper makes it look like it’s about to perch its rear-end on a bench, in summation it could be the least attractive design in the range. Interior is swish yet heavily influenced by the Evoque, but no doubt the functional/cavernous cabin would take in the whole family and their luggage with ease. Engines are sourced from JLRs current roster and are hooked up with an 8-speed ZF gearbox , guaranteed to provide ample performance with possible motion sickness from young ones.
