Review

The Land Rover Discovery is hugely capable and very desirable, and equally at home both on road and off it. Go for one of the diesel engines and S trim to keep the price down. If you have a bigger budget than that, the Audi Q7 and BMW X7 are better buys

get the best price

No Discovery is poorly equipped; even entry-level S trim gives you leather seats, two-zone climate control, keyless entry, 20in wheels, an 11.4in infotainment system with nav and smartphone mirroring, LED headlights and a 360 degree camera to back up front and rear parking sensors. We’d argue it’s all you really need.

This is the cheapest engine option, but we’re yet to try it. Its 3000kg towing capacity is 500kg down on every other engine in the range.
