The model features a large V-shaped grille flanked by aggressive projector headlamps at the front,a wide lower grille, horizontal LED DRLs, a sculpted bonnet, a sturdy front bumper and skid plates, 15-inch double-spoke alloy wheels, roof rails, a stepped roof
and a sleek saloon.
The traditional stepped roof
offers decent headroom in the back, which is necessary because of the 'stadium' seating layout, where the back seats are mounted slightly higher than the ones in front of them to give a better view forward.
For starters, it combines classic sturdy Land Rover features, such as the stepped roof
and pronounced C-pillars, with contemporary slimline lights and a smart rear spoiler that give it a more sporty look.
The latest design includes a stepped roof
, which architect MGMASTUDIO states is inspired by the town's industrial history at the centre of the textiles industry.
The Discovery's former utilitarian styling has been softened, gone is the the stepped roof
and squared off corners.
Purists might not like the fact that a trademark Discovery feature for the previous four generations - its stepped roof
- has gone, though a sloping element remains.
A rising belt-line and stepped roof
accentuate the Discovery's curvaceous side profile thanks to enhanced wheel arches.
inside there are Windsor Leather seats, with the extended leather pack rails in a bright finish that emphasise the vehicle's trademark stepped roof
vents and grille, which also sports a gloss black and lighter grey frame to manoeuvred into position.
Finally, the lowest panel on this pillar has been cut, leaving only the stepped roof
and the head and torso of a crowned figure with a star-shaped halo, as on the panels above.
And the Discovery's stepped roof
allows for 'stadium' seating which means occupants of all three rows have a great view of the road ahead and lends the cabin a sociable, airy feeling.
Headroom is ample and the stepped roof
features something called Command-View - a pair of skylights complete with sunshades over the second row of seats.
