The new Discovery

Fortunately for fans, rather than releasing an obscure close-up, the automaker has revealed a full, albeit CGI, front view of its fifth-generation 4x4. 

The images reveal that the seven-seat Discovery borrows design elements from the Discovery Sport and and Range Rover Evoque.

The automaker says that its new Discovery is every bit as capable as its forebears though with enhanced versatility and technology.
