Land rover models are known for their hardiness; their ability to survive weather extremities and their high-quality performance. Their four-wheel drive (4WD) features make Land Rover SUVs easy to manoeuver even in bad conditions and terrible terrains. Its effort to strike a balance between luxury, all-terrain handling capabilities, and style have paid off with 2016 being a great year in sales for the automaker, especially in the UK.
2017 Land Rover Discovery
While previous Discovery models have been rugged, the fifth-generation Discovery unveiled late last year and set to hit markets in 2017 is less rugged with a more modern style. With seven foldable seats (complete with an app to achieve this as well) the Discovery also has a Wi-Fi hotspot. Its all-terrain handling capabilities are however not limited by its rounder style and additional hi-tech features. Its suspension can be raised up to 11 inches in case of need for more ground clearance. With its lighter aluminium construction and more economical running costs, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery is set to be priced at a minimum of £43,495.
The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is also expected to hit the streets this year. New revamped features will include a better more dynamic interior and exterior design, 10.2” infotainment screen, and new driver-assist technology. It is suitable for anyone who likes the Range Rover Sport but does not want its higher price tag or posh appearance.

The Range Rover is a popular model among SUV lovers. With the 2017 generation of range rovers expected, these luxury SUVs will feature a more stylish 10.2” infotainment screen, driver assist technology, better off-road capability due to an all-terrain information screen and the interior plushness it is also recognized from.
The Range Rover is also expected to add new 2017 models such as the 2017 Range Rover Evoque that will be a better design and all-terrain progress control technology for difficult terrains.

It is set to have a roll over protection, 10.2” infotainment screen and under body bracing for rigidity. The convertible will seat four passengers and have ample cargo space of 8.9 cubic feet.
