I borrowed a brand new Discovery over the weekend and I have to say I was pretty impressed with it, well the way it drove and with the interior and the whistles a bells, but not so much with its looks.
The way the seating works is pretty clever and the touch screen is impressive too, performance from the 3.0 TDV6 is brisk to say the least and you can tell the car is plenty lighter than the previous model, even though it feels bloody huge!
One thing I'm not keen on is the styling, mainly the rear end with the weird offset number plate. I can see the point, but the execution doesn't work IMO. In fact, I don't know anyone at work who likes it and we see hundreds of the things.
It's a great car, probably the cleverest car we've produced yet, but if they were giving cars like these away, I'd choose an XC90, simply to make opening the curtains in the morning a pleasure.
