Land Rover has also paid a lot of attention to kids this time round, knowing that they can make or break the purchasing decision. There are nine USB points, including two in the third row of seats, so all the kids can plug in their devices and tune out.
In fact, so connected is this car, Land Rover had termed it the "Digital Discovery". "From hardware to software, from cogs to code" said a senior executive at launch. It has a wifi hotspot, connection for eight devices simultaneously and 60GB of storage. You can wirelessly transmit from phone to car, meaning you can programme the satnav from your home or office, and when you get in, the car will give you a street view of your destination.
