What used Land Rover Discovery 4x4 will I get for my budget?

Prices are from around £5000 for early 2.7-litre diesel-engined models that have covered more than 150,000 miles, while the cheapest, high-mileage 3.0-litre diesels will cost you about £14,000.

At the other end of the scale, a 2013 diesel in our favoured HSE spec that has covered 36,000 miles will set you back just over £30,000.

How much does it cost to run a Land Rover Discovery 4x4?

The bad news is that running costs are hefty. The diesels will only nudge just over 30mpg with gentle driving, while the V8 will struggle to better 20mpg. That’s the price you pay for the Discovery’s 2.7-tonne weight and four-wheel drive.

Servicing, too, will be pricey compared with a BMW X5, although the Discovery is no more expensive than a Mercedes M-Class in this regard.

Only insurance gives your wallet some respite. The Discovery is in groups 33 to 42, making it cheaper than both of its aforementioned German rivals.
