It was at one point, then I think the DS had a spell at the top spot.

It’s obvious what JLR need to do if they want to improve sales figures.......

Drop the prices of the Discovery 5 by £10k across the range, then they’ll have less of a problem selling them.

I rarely see them even in France, and they are noticeably lacking in the UK every time I go there these days.

Sad.

The New Discovery is just that. A new Disco. It is not, was never meant to be and will never be a “D5” and therefore the direct replacement to the D4. LR has never called it the D5. So comparing sales figures is pointless. Apples and oranges etc.

The “New Defender” will be the spiritual “D5”. (Because the Defender is long dead in all but name).

(Just my opinion.... Whistle )

I beg to differ. Certainly in the earlier days of the Discovery I seem to recall it was indeed their best seller and in fact was a life saver for the marque at the time....

The only reason that they did that was because having a number after the name has a knock on affect on residuals. Look at the cars from the German marques especially, none of them are officially known by a mark number; BMW are a case in point - each has a near impenetrable “E” code, which only mean something to the geeky. LR have now followed this route and are known by a sequence of random numbers beginning with “L”.

The Discovery is a bit of an oddity in that customers are so used to it that we still call the last Discoveries “4’s”, while the funny one is inevitably called the “5”. Dealers do their best not to use these numbers, as they’re told, but they know that to be understood, they are sooner or later going to have to refer to it as a “5”.

The D4s still far exceeds the D5s meandering around the Sevenoaks area. Our school car park used to be filled with D4s. Now, as the D4s get exchanged, they seem to be being swapped out for Volvos, BMWs and Audis. We've got approx. 5 D5s at school. I thought we'd have many more by now. People want reliability, less trips to the dealers for software updates and not having to fill up the AdBlue all the time. They also want a good dealership that does what they say they will do.

We do seem to have an increase in Velars and Evoques. And now the new Evoque has morphed slightly into the Velar ... I'm assuming the DS will have a facelift soon.

I adore my D4. Not put a wheel wrong in 3 years. We'll stick with it until perhaps the service pack runs out and then see how loyal we feel to the brand in the next year or so.
