The amount of equipment your Discovery comes with ranges from surprisingly sparse to seriously lavish. But the former is only in entry-level S trim, which we’d recommend avoiding, because the highlights are air-conditioning, alloys and a powered tailgate, but you don’t get leather seats or sat-nav.
SE trim makes far more sense, even though it adds thousands to the price. As well as electrically adjustable and heated front seats along with leather seat trim all round, you get front and rear parking sensors, automatic lights and wipers and LED headlights, although sat-nav is still notable by its absence.
Our favourite trim is HSE because you get the better infotainment system, keyless entry, a fixed panoramic glass roof, electric third row seats and heated second row seats. If you go for this trim, it’s worth thinking about paying a bit extra for the intelligent seat-folding feature (read more about this in the seating flexibility section).
Then there’s the range-topping HSE Luxury trim. You get lots of standard creature comforts, including the intelligent seat folding, an electrically operated sunroof, heated and cooled front seats, four-zone climate control and a surround camera system that gives a bird’s eye view of the car. However, it’s too pricey to recommend.
