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.

It's capable of towing 3.5 tonnes

As before, the Discovery will be capable of towing up to 3.5 tonnes, when hooked up to a braked trailer - the maximum for a none-commercial vehicle. However, reversing a horsebox or caravan should be easier, thanks to an optional tow assist package that will allow the driver to control the angle of the trailer via the infotainment screen and a rotary dial.

Even without a trailer hooked up, the Discovery will be easier to use, thanks to a new automatic parking system that will steer the vehicle into a tight space automatically, while the driver controls the throttle and brake.
