Whether your travels take you via boulevard or back country, Land Rover and Range Rover have your tracks covered with both on-road refinement and off-road capability. This year marks the introduction of an all-new, fifth-generation Land Rover Discovery - pictured above - and the jaw dropping, top-dropping Range Rover Evoque Convertible.

LAND ROVER DISCOVERY: The all-new Discovery is very different; the slab-sided architecture is gone, replaced by more organic (albeit still upright) sheetmetal. And with aluminum-intensive construction, the 7-passenger SUV drops roughly 1,000 pounds. However, the Disco (we're told) is still unmistakably Discovery. The stepped roof is retained, and under the hood customers have their choice of two 3.0-liter powertrains: a turbocharged diesel V6 or supercharged 'petrol' V6, both connected to an eight-speed auto.

DISCOVERY SPORT: A Dynamic Design Pack provides the Discovery Sport a more urban vibe, while an advanced infotainment system better reproduces that urban vibe if coming through your speakers. The well-received Sport receives four new exterior colors.

RANGE ROVER: Although largely unchanged, the SVAutobiography dynamic continues the tradition of offering the man or woman that (presumably) has everything something they didn't previously have. Dynamically, the Advanced Tow Assist and Intelligent Speed Limiter join the All-Terrain Progress Control System. Functionally, Land Rover's InControl Touch Pro infotainment, with a 10.2-inch touchscreen, is now standard.

RANGE ROVER EVOQUE: The biggest news is the decoupling of the Coupe's top, creating a four-seat Evoque convertible. Beyond dropping the top, Evoques receive an updated InControl Touch interface, along with All Terrain Progress Control, All Terrain Info Center and five new exterior colors.

RANGE ROVER SPORT: A new 380-horsepower HSE Dynamic replaced the limited edition HST, and the Sport enjoys an expanded offering of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. As with other Land Rover products, there is an updated InControl Touch Pro. If the above doesn't close you, consider 19 optional exterior paint colors.

RANGE ROVER VELAR: Occupying what Land Rover terms the 'white space' between the Range Rover Sport and Evoque, the Velar - which will hit U.S. showrooms late in the '17 model year - supplies a design-centric combination of high style and in-the-mud utility. It will be offered with a 2.0 liter turbodiesel, 2.0 liter turbocharged gasoline engine and a 3.0 liter supercharged V6. Pricing in the U.S. will begin at just under $50,000.
