2016 Land Rover Discovery 5 – Exterior and Interior Design

Below it the air intake has a no nonsense design with jet black color for its grille. Bumpers will probably be constructed with a stronger grade of aluminium that will protect the car’s front from any exterior collision during off road travel. Rooftop is slightly slanted at the back to increase aerodynamic flow. Ground clearance is satisfactorily high. Headlight clusters need a special mention as they not only come with LED fitting but also laser diodes that makes illumination possible well over 900 feet at great luminosity, while decreasing the space occupied by the clusters. Much of the displays including speed o meter, rev counter and other information display have gone LCD from the usual analogue display. Central console of the car also has a huge touch screen display unit that will let one control an incredible number of features and settings. It will conserve a nice amount of space, leaving the driver’s cockpit extremely tidy and less sophisticated for good. Displays also give the car a futuristic look without making it too difficult for non technical people to get their way round the car. Seats can be adjusted in 7 different ways. The rear seats can be folded down completely to increase the cargo space by a huge margin. 2016 Land Rover Discovery can accommodate well up to 7 passengers. As the car is wider than most other SUV’s, it will provide enough space to spread around.
