Sitting in the second row of seats, you'll find loads of head room, while the sheer width of the Discovery makes sitting three abreast pretty comfortable for all concerned, especially since there’s no central tunnel in the middle of the floor to rob passengers of foot space. But leg room isn’t quite as good as in the XC90 or Q7.
However, compared with the competition, those sitting in the third row will be happier; even two tall adults will be quite comfortable back there, thanks to considerably more space all round than the Q7, XC90 and BMW X5 can offer. There are even soft pads just under the rear windows so you’ve got a comfy armrest.
Each door bin on the second row can hold a 0.5-litre bottle of water and there are even small stowage areas for passengers on the rearmost row. Meanwhile, all but entry-level S models have two cupholders in the second-row central armrest.
