450kgs lighter


An often quoted figure, but terribly misleading as it’s comparing the D5 in 2.0 form, to the old D4 as a 3.0. Try comparing it engine for engine Thumbs Up
 Three very nice FL2’s and two superb Disco 4’s to date.
With them both sadly out of production and a new replacement Disco 4 needed at short notice, I managed to secure LR’s nearest new equivalent - a FFRR Smile

2016MY D4 3.0 = 2622kg

2018MY D5 2.0 = 2115kg (-547kg)
2018MY D5 3.0 = 2230kg (-392kg)

2.0 is 97kg less and the 3.0 is 58kg more than the 450kg claim ...so not so far off tbh Whistle

D3 K400NJH- gone to car heaven

If you have to wait 17 seconds before reversing out of a parking space, that would be very annoying, if not actually horrifying.


It’s just one more good reason to reverse INTO parking spaces! Wink Very Happy
