Discovering Wiltshire Picnic Spots in the All New Land Rover Discovery​

Flexible interior space, seven full sized seats and a powered inner tailgate which can support the equivalent weight of five washing machines. What are you waiting for? Grab your picnic basket, your family and get exploring in the all new Land Rover Discovery from Dick Lovett Land Rover.


The Discovery Is Ideal For Picnic Trips Away

As well as being able to support 300kgs on the tailgate, the Discovery’s boot features 1,137 litres of space behind the second row of seats, with up to 2,406 litres of luggage space when all the rear seats are folded. To give that some context, the average bath holds 270 litres of water.

Not that you’ll need to fold any of the seats for camping tables or folding chairs as the tailgate doubles as both a picnic table and seating area. The only really tough decision you’ll have to make is where to go for your al fresco dining adventure.
