The 2017 Land Rover Discovery has been spied undergoing cold-weather testing.

Caught on camera by AutoGuide.com‘s spy photographers, the next-generation Land Rover Discovery will lose some of its boxy design and gain more rounded edges. Although the prototype is still heavily camouflaged, we can tell that this is the Discovery based on its shape and size.

Expect the new Discovery to shed some unwanted weight thanks to a new aluminum platform. The rounded edges will give the model a more modern look without losing its signature boxy style.

Inside, the next-generation Discovery will get a more elegant interior with up-to-date technology and higher quality materials. And since Jaguar Land Rover currently offers a plethora of engine options for their models, the new Discovery will benefit from a wide range of powertrain options including standard gasoline, diesel and hybrid variants when it debuts.
