Well, there is some news from British manufacturer. The 2017 Land Rover Discovery will be completely redesigned. Although, this legendary model made through four generations so far, every time new model used plenty of solutions borrowed from previous model. This time it will be different. New model will be completely redesigned in all aspects. It will come with the biggest changes so far. It is expected that the 2017 Discovery will even replace its traditional body-on-frame body structure, for modern, unibody platform. New model will also come with completely different look. Exterior design will come in significantly different style, compared to previous model. It will completely follow company’s new design language. It will be heavily influenced by Discovery Vision Concept, but it will also borrow many of design solutions from some other new models of the brand, such as Range Rover Sport or Evoque.
