Disco 5 to launch in 2016

Land Rover AFRICA Magazine - - NEWS -

While the re­cently-in­tro­duced Dis­cov­ery Sport is tak­ing the world by storm, the au­tomaker an­nounces that the Sport 5 will be made avail­able for pur­chase next year. The Dis­cov­ery 5 will ap­peal to the pre­mium cross­over cus­tomer com­pet­ing against the BMW X5, which is cur­rently out­selling the Disco by around 200 per­cent. The pop­u­lar cube shape will have to make way for a more ur­ban look­ing ve­hi­cle that will adopt the styling of the Dis­cov­ery Vi­sion con­cept. New things to be added in­clude the ‘Trans­par­ent Bon­net’ where the ter­rain un­der­neath the ve­hi­cle will be pro­jected on a heads-up dis­play screen. En­gine op­tions in­clude a 3.0L V6 petrol, 3.0L diesel or the new hy­brid sys­tem us­ing a new two-litre In­ge­nium en­gine and an elec­tric mo­tor en­closed into the eight-speed gear­box.
