    2019 Discovery SDV6 HSE Lux Carpathian Grey

    MY20 HSE Luxury SDV6 is finally here

    Finally got my hands on my new Discovery yesterday, after a five month wait since initially putting pen on paper.

    It's a HSE Luxury 3.0 SDV6 in Carpathian Grey with Glacier leather, plus a couple of option packs (technology for HUD/adaptive LEDs/solar windscreen and driver assist for 360 cameras and something else). 21 inch wheels wearing Pirelli Scorpion Zero all season tyres.

    So far, blown away by the comfort and spec on this car. Still learning all of its tricks. The Cruise assist is basically self-driving without lane change capability and is pretty impressive.

    The ride is sublime and the optional Adaptive Dynamics (active dampers) make a significant difference in tidying the handling through direction switches. It's very, very quiet and I'm loving interrupting that as I have an opening sunroof for the first time in years.

    It's quick for its size. Easy to drop other cars, if not 440i easy.

    825w Meridian Surround sound is astoundingly good. One of the key reasons I went for the top of the range model.

    Boot is huge and toddler daughter loves her seat in the back.

    That's it for now. I'm honestly in disbelief that I've got such a brilliant car sat on my drive.

    Pleased you like it. They are fab cars and even when you (hopefully you won't) consider changing for something different you just can't match it's blend of abilities. Thumbs Up

    By the way, what are the differences between yours and the MY19 that I have?

    Thanks Blackdog, I think you are right about it’s blend of abilities.

    MY19 and MY20 are all but identical I think. I was originally ordering the former and nothing changed in my build apart from prices and colours.

    2019 Discovery SDV6 HSE Santorini Black

    Really pleased you like it too. I'm on my third Disco after a 335d, and the change from fairly fast saloon to big chunk Disco 4 was a big jump. But I haven't looked back once.

    I'd trade the mighty driving position, comfort and space of a Discovery for a Beemer any day now!

    Do post some pics of the mighty machine. Our kids absolutely love mine. Although, when my wife got her Tiguan, that won favour for a while purely 'cos they like the 'tables' on the back of the front seats....

    Looking very nice, glad you've finally picked it up! I saw someone had used cruise assist for quite a long trip, crazy what these cars are capable of nowadays. I wasn't aware until a week before pick up that the SE had Park Assist as standard, was quite amazed at its accuracy. Enjoy!

    That's really very nice indeed.

    And to the OP who mentioned Park Assist - had mine nearly a year and still not used it once. I can't figure it out!

    Thanks for all the positive comments folks, I am really pleased how the colour combo turned out. Especially the Glacier interior, which I had not seen at all until ours was delivered, phew!

    As you say, 747_JK, quite a change from a quick BMW. When dropping down into my (pristine, low-mileage, 2-year old) 440i, it frankly seemed awkward and a bit rough after being in the test Discos I had borrowed. Which was a bit of a shock! And they also felt a distinct cut above the direct competition - X5, XC90, Q7 etc- at least for my tastes.

    Yes, Bobdisco, the cruise assist is pretty impressive. Great on the motorway and surprisingly capable off it (although I won’t use it off the motorway, that was just a test). Park Assist will probably be tried out to see if my wife likes it - she will be an occasional driver so the parking aid might be good in an unfamiliar and much bigger car. We’ve never engaged the park assist button in her little Auris in six years though!

    Wow the light interior always looks luxurious, what a great car. We had ours just on two year now and and I still love it. Enjoy😀
