The Land Rover Discovery 5 is a big departure from the previous generation.

Aluminium construction has dropped the kerbweight significantly, helping Land Rover address the Discovery’s relatively weak fuel economy and high CO2 emissions.

The square-edged looks of the old car have gone and the interior has received an upmarket makeover.

Buyers have the choice of two diesels and a petrol. We’re driving the 3.0-litre diesel.

What are we looking for? We already know what tow car talent the Discovery has, after its overall win at the Tow Car Awards 2017.

Now we want to spend longer with the car to get to know it better as an everyday drive, as well as a tow car.
