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.

At the top of the tree, R-Dynamic HSE trim gives you 22in wheels, fancier ambient LED lighting inside and upgraded LED headlights outside, heated and cooled seats, 20-way adjustable heated and cooled seats, a 700w surround sound stereo and adaptive cruise control. At this price, we’d be looking at an Audi Q7 or BMW X7, though.

This potent 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine has 355bhp and the fastest 0-62mph time of 6.5sec. However, it’s is only slightly faster outright than the D300 and needs to be worked much harder. It’s thirsty, with official economy figures of slightly above 25mpg. That’s still better than the P300 thanks to mild hybrid technology, though.
