    Adaptive Dynamics and ride quality

    Adaptive Dynamics sounds like a must-have on my order, but I have not driven a D5 with it. I've only driven a SE on 20" wheels.

    I found the RRS Dynamics very capable, especially the PHEV with its instant torque. I'm assuming from that and the LR brochure detail that a D5 will be much flatter in cornering with this option.

    For anyone that has driven both, especially on the same wheels, is there any negative to Adaptive Dynamics - does it make any difference to ride quality? I'll be ticking the box on a HSE Lux on standard 21s.

    Any info, much appreciated. I wouldn't be exploring this in such detail if I wasn't kicking my heels waiting for Portofino Blue to be available so that I can sign off my order (again) Very Happy

    I've driven both on 20"
    There's a significant difference.

    I understand that AD is configurable on RRS
    It's not configurable on D5 in fact you can't turn it on and off which would allow you to feel the difference.

    Thanks Dodlestonian, Is that for the worse or for the better? As you specced it, I guess you preferred it? Smile

    I don't notice much difference if you drive sedately but It's definitely a nicer drive when you put your foot down, it drives like a smaller car.

    Thanks...that's just what I was hoping - still a loping, comfy Disco at slow speeds, but a bit less head toss on a winding but quick A-road.

    Are the adaptive dynamics ON all the time, or is it something you have to select every time you get in the vehicle?
    Is it worth it? £800!!
    Trying to configure a D5 that works for me.

    Apparently it’s on all the time and to me it’s a yes, I will definitely take it on my next D5, not that the current one is not driving well, it does feel very stable, but with the AD it will improve a lot I suppose. Have it on my other cars and it really makes a difference.

    2019 Discovery SDV6 HSE Carpathian Grey

    When I saw this thread originally I thought adaptive dynamics was standard on HSE, because it sounds like something I would have ordered, but didn't recall seeing as an option so assumed I would have it on my car (HSE Commercial) but as I read updates to the thread I started to panic thinking I'd missed a thing I would have liked to add......sooooo I just checked the MY19 Commercial Specification and Price Guide from which I placed my order, and can find no mention at all of Adaptive Dynamics as an option?!?! Anyone know if it's standard on a commercial for some reason?

    I don’t think so, but ask your dealer. Here, in Albania, we can’t even order it on the non-commercial D5, so again very market specific.

    It’s an £800 option on the commercial HSE , I am in the process of putting an order together and ticked the box. Go on the build your own on the Landrover site and it is there Thumbs Up

    I can't even find a "build your Land Rover" for the Discovery Commercial??? I know the option is there for the discovery, but there was no mention of it anywhere in the downloadable Spec and Price guide Sad

    Oh! My blunder looks like I've always been using a preconfigured vehicle rather than starting a new one so I never had the option of a commercial on the car builder!!

    Cheers for help
