The Discovery is a large car, and as expected, it's usefully-sized for up to seven adults. If you want to make full use of the huge boot, you'll have to drop at least the third row of seats.
There's plenty of space up front, row two offers three seats suitable for adults, and the final two seats are also suitable for adults. Head and legroom is comfortable for those up to six feet in height at least.
The Intelligent Seat Fold allows the five rear seats to be individually folded or raised from the central touch screen, buttons on the seats themselves or in the boot and also via a dedicated mobile phone app.
The system can fold all the seats in 14 seconds when operated correctly, but it takes a little practice to navigate the menus and ensure the safety measures aren’t triggered which halts the electric mechanisms.
The automatic seat droppers are undeniably cool though - have a look for yourself:
