Review

The Land Rover Discovery is a very capable luxury SUV. It's desirable, roomy, nicely finished inside and quite at home on the road. It's much more useful than most of its rivals off-road, too. The D250 diesel engine is excellent and in S trim it undercuts the competition. If you have a bigger budget then it's also worth checking out the Audi Q7 and huge BMW X7.

Moving up to R-Dynamic SE gets you 21in wheels, scrolling indicators, twin panoramic roofs, an electrically adjustable steering column, upgraded 400w stereo, blind spot monitoring and 18-way seats with memory.

This 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol is the cheapest engine option, but is still capable of 0-62mph in 7.3sec thanks to 296bhp. Economy is only around 25mpg, and based on our experiences with the larger P360, it’ll need to be worked hard. Its 3000kg towing capacity is 500kg down on every other engine in the range, so we’d spend a bit more on the D250 diesel
