    2017 Discovery Td6 HSE Silicon Silver

    Height from floor to boot plank

    Following on from a post on the the Disco4 site I am interested to know the distance from the floor to the plank when the car is lowered as low as possible.

    I am using the button in the boot to lower the car to its lowest position.

    My car is a 2017 HSE and when lowered measures 800 mm from floor to plank..

    I am interested to know if your is different. Thumbs Up

    Definitely 76cm in the lowered (bumpstop) setting ...I wonder if it's because I'm parked on a slight slope? Confused

    Hmm, strange, mine was in the lowest position as well. Lux MY18 and on a slight slope as yours, but with the back at the hillside.

    Is there a chance the difference could be due to using whole car lowering v tailgate button lowering only the rear?

    Not in my case ...if I don't lower to the bumpstops via the button in the boot I'm still 20mm different at access height i.e 780mm

    I think Simon meant did you lower it to access height first in the car and then use the boot button.

    I do not think it makes any difference.

    The boot height is my only real bug bear with the car, the dog can leap in and out now but not sure about when she is older.

    Measured mine 80cm using the lowering thingy button. I got the wife to site on the plank but didn't get the opportunity to measure because i was at the front end trying to keep the wheels on the ground. Rolling with laughter

    Well as I said on the other side, DG must have a Chinese tape measure or needs to put air in his tyres! Rolling with laughter

    It does seem very odd though?

    No, it's set to auto access height so the only change is using the button in the boot Smile
