The Land Rover Discovery has a number of important strengths. It's desirable, practical, great off road and available more cheaply than some rivals. 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. We recommend the D300 diesel engine with entry-level S trim.

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.

We reckon the cheaper D250 is a better buy, but if you do want more power, this D300 diesel is where your money should go. Put your foot down hard and let the engine rev, and it'll hit 60mph from a standstill in a claimed 6.5sec.
