The Land Rover Discovery is hugely capable and very desirable, and equally at home both on road and off it. Go for one of the diesel engines and SE trim to keep the price down. If you have a bigger budget than that, the Audi Q7 and BMW X7 are better buys,get the best price
Only worth a look if you’re happy with a very basic Discovery; you get a 10.0in touchscreen infotainment system, air conditioning, alloy wheels and a powered tailgate, but you don’t get leather seats or sat nav.
Engine: 2.0 Si4
With 296bhp, this engine delivers surprisingly decent straight-line performance: Land Rover claims an official 0-62mph time of 7.7 seconds. However, the fact you need to rev this engine much harder than the diesels makes it feel less appropriate for a big SUV than the diesels.
