This has been spotted (spied) somewhere in Europe, by instagram user ‘inimah_u_otto_’.

The all-new 2017 Land Rover Discovery, expected to be called Land Rover Discovery 5, will feature Land Rover’s latest design language that was introduced with the Range Rover Evoque and later on incorporated in the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and the Land Rover Discovery Sport. Land Rover previewed the Land Rover Discovery Mk5 with the Land Rover Discovery Vision concept in 2014. The new generation model will be based on the PLA (Premium Lightweight Architecture) platform, and thus, shed significant amount of weight.
The next-gen Land Rover Discovery is expected to be offered with 2.0-litre four-cylinder and 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol and diesel engine choices, along with 6-speed manual and 9-speed automatic transmission options. An all-wheel drive system will be fitted as standard. The all-new Discovery will feature the familiar offerings from the brand’s other models, like InControl infotainment system with touchscreen colour display, surround sound system from Meridian Audio, gesture tailgate, Engine Drag Torque Control (EDC), Trailer Stability Assist (TSA), Hill Descent Control (HDC), Roll Stability Control (RSC) and Traction Control System (TCS).

This is good news to replace the clunky LR4.
This new LR5 looks great!
Hope they bring the diesel engines to the US ??
finally they smartened up and merged away from giving us something that looks like a bigger Evoque to something that now looks like a smaller RR HSE, in design alone you can see that. Now if they can only make an Autobiography trim available to us it would make all the difference.

Here's some more photos of 2017 Land Rover Discovery being tested at the Nurburgring:

The next generation of the Land Rover Discovery promises to have extensive off-road capabilities. However, like most new cars, it's also being tested at the Nurburgring, the most demanding track in the world.

Unlike the Discovery Sport, this fuller SUV will be available with a supercharged V6 engine, just like the F-Pace S. However, most of the buyers will choose one of the latest Ingenium 4-cylinder turbo engines. This is possible only thanks to Aluminum body construction that will help shed unwanted kilos. While the outgoing Discovery 4 outweighs a Range Rover, the new one should go below 2 tons. For the sake of efficiency, a hybrid model should be ready within a year of the launch.

Instead of having a performance version, the Discovery will mirror Jeep's Trailhawk and offer something called "SVX." This version will be more capable of dealing with the rough stuff and will boast a manlier appearance.
