5 star rating
Test 2017
Individual safety ratings
Adult Occupant: 90%
Child Occupant: 80%
Pedestrian: 75%
Safety Assist: 73%

Euro NCAP provides motoring consumers with a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe. The safety ratings are determined from a series of vehicle tests, designed and carried out by Euro NCAP. These tests represent, in a simplified way, important real life accident scenarios that could result in injured or killed car occupants or other road users.

Interior & boot space

4.8 out of 5 4.8
  • Few cars come as accomodating as this
  • But you pay for it in terms of length and width
  • Lots of storage space for family nick-nacks

Land Rover Discovery - will my family fit

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.

Will a Land Rover Discovery fit in my garage?

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:
