2018 Land Rover Discovery 5 – loses some weight

The manufacturer has bravely called its Discovery line “the best SUV’s family in the world”. It is a bold statement, and we had a tough task to prove that they were right. However, 2018 Land Rover Discovery 5 model is not quite new, as the last model had almost the same design and performances and adopted some details from Range Rover and a smaller model Discovery Sport. On the other hand, this model has an interesting design, with an off-road capability (improved on the field), an impressive high-technology and equipment and very well designed wide seven-seat cabin.

The design of 2018 Land Rover Discovery 5 is not much different from the last model and Discovery Sport. It has rounded front end with gridded front grille and thin LED front lights perfectly incorporated in hood line. The rear end is slightly rounded, with a spoiler on the top of the rear glass and has modernly designed rear lights. Thanks to special air suspension and highest positioned chassis it is easily driven in all terrains, while new aluminum chassis save the weight for even 1000 pounds.

As we said, 2018 Land Rover Discovery 5 comes as a seven-seat vehicle, with plenty of space for taller passengers and surely lot of space for legs and knees. That should be its biggest advance. Together with leather on the seats come Jaguar/Land Rover corporate dial-shifter and an option of dropping the seats with a smartphone and large 10-inch touchscreen.
