    New Land Rover Discovery

    A very serious looking Rover. A bit of a Retro Rover theme going.

    From The Car Connection (web page):

    Quote:
    The current Land Rover Discovery has been on the market since 1998 and will be replaced by an all-new model, to be introduced in April this year at the New York Auto Show. The new seven-seater is clearly showing Range Rover's undeniable influence. The new Discovery will no longer have the spare wheel mounted at the tailgate but has it under the boot floor. It will no longer have the characteristic "step" in the roofline, which turns out to be straight now, as can be seen on the photos. Sitting on an all-new platform code-named T5, the newcomer will measure a bit more in overall length and wheelbase than today's model but less in width and height. In exchange it will have a more luxurious MPV-style interior and is promising better balanced and sportier handling; it will adopt a Range Rover-derived front and rear suspension.

    Looks like very un-atractive armed vehicle

    It looks very boxy to me ..... Comparing it to the Cayenne, the latter looks gorgeous...

    Re: New Land Rover Discovery

    I think that the front.. it's, the normal Land Rover front.. it's from the new designs (range rover) as we all know... personally, I don't like it.. The back.. only one word can describe it.. HORRIBLE ...it looks like ford transit..

    Re: New Land Rover Discovery

    I like it overall, just can't stand the back. Yikes!

    Re: New Land Rover Discovery

    nice box,
    a box, but I like it!

    Re: New Land Rover Discovery

    Re: New Land Rover Discovery

    I like it overall too, but as well as the back window, I don't care for the roof bars...otherwise I'd like one...

    Re: New Land Rover Discovery

    BMW was finally making headway into Land Rover when they sold it to Ford. I got away from Rovers only because of my fear of what Ford might due to the marquee. It would appear now my suspicions were correct. Except for the front head lights and grill area, this thing is Fugly! It looks like they tried to capture a disco, a d90 and a RR and turn it into something cool. But what they got is a square turd.

    Re: New Land Rover Discovery

    Is it me or is Land Rover doing away with what made the Disco a Disco? Why no rear mounted spare? Can you imagine getting a flat while in the mud? And the step roof is what made a Disco a Disco. Looks like the ground clearance is gone too, as well as the solid axles.

    I guess Ford wants to make money. Can't blame them for that.
