Spy Shots: 2017 Land Rover Discovery Testing In China
Published on August 5, 2016 by Tycho de Feijter
Spy Shots showing the new 2017 Land Rover Discovery testing in China, revealing most of its lights, grille, and bumper. The new Discovery will be launched late this year. It will be made in England and in China by the Chery-JLR joint venture.
Design of the new Discovery is derived from the 2014 Land Rover Discovery Concept. Bumper of the test car looks almost 100% similar, including the vertical air inlets on each side.
Lights are barely visible bur the bumper design is clear enough. Wheels seem a bit narrow.
The new Discovery is based on the PLA (Premium Lightweight Architecture) platform. Chinese customers will love that abbreviation, as it also stands for People’s Liberation Army; the Chinese armed forces. Internationally the Discovery will be available with 2.0 turbo petrol, a 2.0 turbo diesel, and a supercharged V6 petrol. China will do without the diesel.
