The quiet life
You no longer need a megaphone to make yourself heard in the back row. The whirs and whistles from the old 2.7-litre engine's turbos that chorused your every take-off are gone.
Now, with the new 3.0-litre unit, they produce a mere background hum.
Equally, plenty of work has been put into prevent noise and vibration filtering into the cabin.
In fact, were it not for a whoosh of wind noise generated by that bluff windscreen and chunky side mirrors, the Discovery 4 would be as quiet as many a top-end luxury car.
