Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Land Rover Discovery 4x4?

The most obvious rival to the Discovery is the Audi Q7, which is our favourite used large SUV. It doesn’t feel quite as special as the Discovery inside and nor does it offer quite as much space in the rearmost seats, but it’s more reliable, more efficient and even more comfortable on its optional air suspension.

You could also choose the Volvo XC90, which has just as upmarket an interior as the Discovery but, again, has a better reputation for reliability and is one of the safest SUVs around. It also does better in fuel economy tests than the Discovery.

Overview

The seven-seat Discovery is great both on-road and off. It's costly, though, and potentially unreliable. 

  • Fabulously comfortable
  • Spacious and practical
  • Luxurious interior
  • Poor reliability
  • Expensive to buy
  • High fuel consumption
