The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

SUV fans will love the Land Rover Discovery's lofty driving position that feels significantly higher than most of its rivals. The driver's seat is very comfortable as well as easy to set up, thanks to its standard 14-way-powered adjustment. If you opt for R-Dynamic SE, you’ll get 18-way seats, and HSE versions have 20-way ones with memory.

Whichever trim you choose, there's lots of up, down and in and out adjustment for the steering wheel, too. You have to make those adjustments manually on S and R-Dynamic S trims, but R-Dynamic SE and R-Dynamic HSE models have electric steering wheel adjustment that’s linked to the seat’s memory function.

To help with visibility at night, all models get LED headlights as standard. They are upgraded with automatic main beams and automatic levelling on R-Dynamic SE. Jump up to R-Dynamic HSE and they become adaptive headlights, which can stay on main beams without dazzling oncoming cars, allowing you to see further ahead.

The Discovery is a long car, so to help with parking, all models have front and rear parking sensors. They also come with a surround-view camera, which gives you a 360-degree, bird’s eye view of the car. That’s particularly noteworthy as it’s an optional extra on most rivals, including the Audi Q7.

Sat nav and infotainment

Every trim is fitted with an 11.4in touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring, Bluetooth, sat-nav and a DAB radio. When you step up from S to R-Dynamic SE trim, you gain a 400-watt Meridian stereo and jumping to R-Dynamic HSE trim ups the power to 700 watts.
