The fifth-gen Land Rover Discovery incorporates the new family design language with a completely new exterior inspired by the Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept. The mid-size premium SUV offers seven full-sized adult seats with ample headroom for even the third-row passengers, thanks to the stepped roofline.
