Which used Land Rover Discovery 4x4 should I buy?
When the current Land Rover Discovery was introduced in 2004, it was known as the Discovery 3 and was available with two engines: a 2.7-litre V6 diesel and a 4.4-litre V8 petrol.
The diesel is the better option and is therefore much more common, even though it’s far from frugal and feels like it could do with a bit more muscle.
This latter problem was solved in 2009 when Land Rover introduced a host of updates, including a 3.0-litre diesel engine. In fact, the changes were comprehensive enough for Land Rover to call the revised car the Discovery 4.
The basic S specification is best avoided, but SE has leather seats, while HSE has all the gizmos and chrome-plated whistles.
