Exciting new generation of tow cars stunned the people at the Paris Motor Show 2016. Wild concepts and crazy supercars stole the attention of people who attended the show but as expected, there were a few which stood out.

The new Land Rover Discovery, the Skoda Kodiaq, and the Audi Q5 were the tow cars which grabbed most of the attention among the tow cars in the show.

According to David Motton of Practical Caravan, people already had an idea as to what the New Discovery would look like before the show, the Land Rover had already released n image showing the front of the car, but the Paris Motor Show have unveiled every little detail of these cars.

He also stated that the new Discovery looks far more modern and contemporary but people have different tastes. He said that the weight of the new Discovery shed a huge 480kg from the kerbweight to bring it into line with its lighter and more fuel-efficient rivals, like the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90. He still thinks that the Discovery still weighs in at over two tones and that the legal towing capacity is 3500kg.

Motton also mentioned about the changes in the engine line-up, and the improved economy and emissions. Despite the new car's improved efficiency, he said that it still emits more than the most fuel-efficient Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90.

The Discovery has not changed its seven-seat layout, the second and third rows are higher than the front seat. This is to make sure that everyone in the car gets a good view from the inside. The third row, as well as the second row now have Isofix mounting points on SE spec cars and above so this type of child seat can now be used.

The new Discovery also has a new feature called Intelligent Seat Fold, where the second and third row can be controlled using a smartphone app.

The Motoring Research indicated that the price of the new Discovery start from £43,493 for the base Discovery S, and £62,695 on the first edition. It was also stated that only 600 are coming to the United Kingdom.
