In addition to the new construction, the Disco also boasts a new look with more rounded edges. If I had a dollar for everyone who told me this looks like a Ford Explorer...

Our HSE Luxury model features an air suspension that raises for improved ground clearance at the touch of a button. The ride also automatically lowers at highway speed for stability and efficiency.

The new Discovery places a larger emphasis on daily driving and on-road performance with improved efficiency and stability on tarmac, but the SUV excels when conditions are a bit dirty.
