Should I buy one?

We will have to wait for the official launch next February before we give a definitive verdict, but what we can confirm is that the new Land Rover Discovery has lost none of its off-roading prowess. The plethora of new driver aids makes off-road driving less challenging for inexperienced drivers, and the well-appointed and versatile interior takes the stress out of long stints behind the wheel.

Factor in a clever seating configuration, a huge boot and a new infotainment system, and the new Discovery looks like it could become one of the best luxury SUVs available.
