1999 Discovery New Car Test Drive
Land Rover has completely redesigned its Discovery for 1999. Though the overall look is quite similar to the previous model, 85 percent of its parts are new. To signify this, it has been renamed the Land Rover Discovery Series II.
Fresh styling and a wider stance give the Discovery Series II a more confident look. A host of new features improve safety, comfort and convenience. The interior has been thoroughly upgraded with more comfortable seats, refined switchgear and improved outward visibility.
But the most important change to the Discovery is in the way it drives. While the previous model felt tentative in transient maneuvers and leaned through corners, the new one feels firmly planted and tackles curves with confidence.
In spite of its refined roadworthiness, the Discovery Series II has not lost Land Rover's renowned off-road capability. It still features lots of suspension travel to climb over rocky terrain. It's still the ultimate off-road utility vehicle.
