Which used Land Rover Discovery 4x4 should I buy?
The entry-level S version is difficult to find, so we’d go for at least an SE model, which should do everything you need if it’s all you can afford. However, if you can stretch to it, HSE adds even more luxury and practicality, and is also the most widely available, so it’s our favourite. HSE Luxury is just a bit too pricey.
Engine-wise, the thirst of the petrols rules them out unless you do miniscule mileage or have access to your own oil refinery. Either diesel is a much better bet; even the SD4 provides more than adequate performance, but the TD6 is best suited to the Discovery’s size and the most popular engine choice, making it the easiest to find.
