Land Rover Discovery Tow Assist Technology is Proved ‘idiot Proof’ by Jack and Michael Whitehall

When it comes to towing, the seven-seat family SUV has led the way ever since the original model pulled a train at its launch in 1989.

With a luxurious 6.8m long Airstream Missouri caravan hitched to the Discovery, and using the rear-facing camera and dash-mounted rotary controller to steer, Jack successfully navigated the full-size SUV along the narrow causeway just in time to avoid the incoming tide.

I’m a driving novice, so reversing without a trailer is a challenge – never mind doing it with a huge luxury caravan hooked up. Without the clever tech on the Discovery, I’m pretty certain we’d have been swimming back to shore – I just wish it had a mute button for my dad, too.

The latest towing demonstration from the Discovery family follows a 16km drive across the Australian Outback in 2017, pulling a 110-tonne road train. The Discovery Sport premium compact SUV also pulled a 100-tonne train across a Swiss railway bridge – inspired by the Discovery 1, which completed a similar feat at its 1989 launch. Thirty years on, the Discovery is still the world’s most versatile and capable family SUV.
