Has a number of important strengths. It's desirable, practical, great off road and cheaper than some rivals (if you choose one of the lower trim levels). Reliability is a real weak point, though, and the Discovery isn't as sophisticated on the road or as plush inside as an Audi Q7 or BMW X7.

Even entry-level S trim gets you leather seats, two-zone climate control, keyless entry and 20in wheels. It also keeps the price below that of stronger competition, so is our pick of the range.

Our favourite engine. The D250 diesel managed 0-60mph in a more-than-adequate 7.7sec in our tests and there's always plenty of low-rev pulling power.
