Used Land Rover Discovery 4x4 2017-present review

Used Land Rover Discovery 4x4 (17-present)
Review continues below...

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.

Or if five seats will do and you want something more sporty to drive, there’s always the Porsche Cayenne. It costs more to buy than the Discovery, so you’ll have to settle for an older model, and it isn’t as comfortable or spacious, but no SUV of this size is as entertaining to drive fast as the Cayenne.

Verdict

If you need to go off road, the Discovery is still unbeatable. It’s terrific on road, too, but it's costly to buy and run, and poor reliability means rivals make better used buys

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