A great place to travel

LRO (UK) - - Heritage | How The Disco 2 Was Born -

Key to the orig­i­nal Dis­cov­ery’s ap­peal was its abil­ity to carry seven peo­ple, a fea­ture that led to its iconic stepped roof line. And the driv­ing force be­hind the new model was the de­mand for for­ward-fac­ing third-row seats.

The seats’ op­er­a­tion was a work of art. While they still stowed up­right in al­coves in the body side, a novel twist-grip ar­range­ment al­lowed them to be de­ployed into po­si­tion, where they were latched in place. Head re­straints folded down from the roof. The three rows of seats were ar­ranged sta­di­um­style, with each row be­ing slightly higher than the one in front to en­hance the am­bi­ence of the cabin.

The fa­cia lay­out from the 1994 model year facelift was kept, but now pro­vided con­trols for an im­proved heat­ing/air­con sys­tem.

There was a huge amount of stor­age, in­clud­ing a ‘curry hook’ from which to sus­pend your Fri­day night Balti take­away.

The flag­ship Dis­cov­ery 2 fea­tured leather seat fac­ings, Har­man Kar­don sur­round-sound au­dio, and ve­neer dash and con­sole in­serts. It made truly lux­u­ri­ous fam­ily trans­port.

The fa­cia was up­graded with a new stereo sys­tem and con­trols for the au­to­matic heat­ing and air-con­di­tion­ing. The chunky steer­ing wheel was also a new de­sign.
