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
Our pick of the range, adding leather seats (heated in the front), automatic lights and wipers, LED headlights, and various infotainment upgrades to everything you get with entry-level S trim.
Engine: 3.0 SDV6
This 3.0-litre V6 diesel isn’t ultimately that much faster than the 2.0 Sd4, but pulls harder at low revs and delivers power more smoothly. It still doesn’t deliver the sort of hot hatch-rivalling acceleration you’ll experience in, say, an Audi Q7 50 TDI, though.
