Engines

2.0 SD4 240 Auto
You might imagine a 2.0-litre diesel would struggle in a car as big and heavy as the Discovery, but this entry-level level engine delivers surprisingly adequate performance. True, there is a bit of a pause between you pushing the accelerator and the car surging forward, but once in to its stride, speed builds steadily enough.
2.0 TD4 180
This engine has four-wheel drive as standard, and is available with the standard six-speed manual gearbox or optional nine-speed automatic. We’d recommend the latter. Performance isn’t exactly great, but it’s just about acceptable – even with bums on all seven seats.
2.0 TD4 [5 seat]
This is the most efficient engine on offer and that makes it particularly attractive to company car drivers. However, performance is sluggish and there’s no automatic gearbox option with this engine. You can’t have seven seats, either.
