Well here it is in the flesh, the new long awaited Discovery 5.
We captured the car previously on test in Spain, but here we see for the first time the true body lines of the brand new Discovery SUV.
For those who keep an eye on the Discovery evolution will note a massive resemblance to the prototype concept, the Discovery Vision displayed in 2014. (see the 4 images below);
The new vehicle has retained the always recognisable Discovery roof step although a more subdued option has been adopted. The character line running from the front corner vent to the edge of the taillights, the roof design and the shape of the lights and front grille vents are all carried over from the concept too. Outside of small proportional changes, this Discovery are lifted directly from the show car predecessor. Clearly, the days of tall, upright, and square box are gone now at Land Rover, which is a shame in some respects.
