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 SE 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

This is the point at which keyless entry, electric third-row seats, a panoramic fixed-glass roof and heated second-row seats come as standard. If you go for HSE, it’s worth thinking about paying a bit extra for the intelligent seat-folding feature (read more on this in the seating flexibility section).

You might imagine a 2.0-litre diesel would struggle in a car as big and heavy as the Discovery, but this entry-level engine delivers surprisingly adequate performance. There is a pause between you pushing the accelerator and the car surging forward, but once in to its stride speed builds steadily enough.
