RIDING ON AIR
THE DISCOVERY has fully independent suspension and most models come with height-adjustable air springs, which brings benefits both on- and off-road and to day-to-day functionality. From the default ride height of 208mm the suspension can be jacked up 75mm for off-road use in a couple of stages to give 283mm of ground clearance and an impressive 900mm wading depth. For highway driving the suspension automatically drops by 13mm to enhance handling and aero efficiency. Access height is also 40mm below the default ride height, making it easier to get in and out of the car, load gear in and out of the car, or hook-up a trailer or caravan.
