Top 10 things you need to know about the 2017 Land Rover Discovery

It might look like a Range Rover Sport, but this is actually the 2017 Discovery. The fifth-generation version of Land Rover's popular SUV will go on sale in the spring from £43,495, with a new design, more tech and a powerful range of petrol and diesel engines.

As before, there will be a Discovery for everyone, with improved on-road handling for the Chelsea tractor buyers and improved off-road ability and 3.5 tonne towing limit for those who want to the full Land Rover experience.

The Discovery will be a true all-terrain 4x4

Despite the Chelsea tractor reputation, the new Discovery is a true all-terrain 4x4. The Discovery’s ground clearance is 283mm (up 43mm on the old model) while the maximum wading depth has been increased to 900mm - that’s 300mm more than the rugged, old-school Mercedes-Benz G-Class

If you do plan to get your feet (or wheels) wet then you’ll be able to spec the Discovery with a wade sensing system, which will provide real-time depth information on the 10-inch infotainment screen. However, unless you’re planning to get in the sea it’s unlikely you’ll ever reach the maximum wading depth.
