Check the dimensions you will be suprised


I've just taken you up on that Russell and put both brochures side by side on the screen. What I have learned is that:

1. On a like for like basis, the height has been reduced from 1,920 mm (D4) to 1,888 mm (D5).

2. The ride height on the D4 will drop by 50 mm in access mode, but I can't find a figure in the spec sheets for the D5.

3. While much has been made of it's improved off road capability, including an increase in its maximum ground clearance, the maximum clearance has "increased" from 310 mm (D4) to 283 mm (D5)! Confused

The D5 can drop the rear of the car by 60mm, I think the normal access mode is 40mm ?

The height and width of the boot space is restricted by the access dimensions of the rear door - how has that changed from D4 to D5 - this could be far more relevant.

The height of the opening is very relevant to me and something I'm waiting for the dealer to confirm, i need to chase them. My dog nearly knocked its self out on the roof when jumping into the D4 last week so i don't want it much lower Confused

Ride height info

2.4.7 Four-corner air suspension

Land Rover’s four-corner air suspension system not only improves ride quality when driving on-road but also provides greater capability when off-roading.

With its two-stage off-road mode the automatic system is able to vary between two ride heights of +40mm and +75mm. At speeds below 50km/h (31mph) the +75mm setting is available and for faster speeds on rutted dirt roads, between 50-80km/h (31-50mph), the vehicle will operate at +40mm. In addition, the new Speed Lowering function cuts drag and enhances fuel economy by automatically reducing the ride height by 13mm at cruising speeds above 105km/h (65mph).

England 2015 Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 SE Tech Auto Kaikoura StoneDiscovery 4

Rear Height Adjust allows the driver to lower and raise the height of the rear of the vehicle using the key fob or switches in the luggage compartment to make hitching a trailer simpler than ever and make it easier for dogs to jump into the back.

To aid entry and exit, the vehicle body height drops by an initial 15mm when the ignition is turned off or a passenger unclips their seat belt, in anticipation of getting in or out of the vehicle. When an occupant opens a door, New Discovery lowers by an additional 25mm to reduce the step-out height by its maximum of 40mm.

That video has no dimensions and I've searched the brochure in vain for that measurement. Page 122 has many dimensions but not that one. Perhaps someone going to a Dealer display can measure up for you. I'm going to one on 28 Nov so I'll do it then. Thumbs Up

No measurement, but assuming the vehicle was at automatic access height (minus 40mm) at least this shows the extra lowering ability.
