Land Rover Discovery 4 still best luxury SUV

Judges were ‘blown away’ by the rugged 4×4’s on- and off-road ability, according to Dan Strong, editor.

He said: "The Discovery 4 takes everything from muddy fields to posh hotel car parks in its stride – and everything in between. Its huge boot, punchy diesel engine and spacious seven-seat cabin tick almost every box.”

The Land Rover Discovery 4 was described by judges as an MPV, an off-roader and a luxury, offering all the practicality, comfort and go-anywhere ability of all three segments.

He added: "The allure of the Land Rover badge and high quality cabin take care of the rest.”
The Land Rover Discovery 4 is not a stranger to awards, picking up over 150 since its launch in 1989.

One of the most successful 4x4s ever from the brand famous for its off-roaders, the Discovery 4 has been named best MPV in awards ceremonies in Scotland, Spain, China and the US.

Available in S, SE and HSE specification, the Land Rover Discovery 4, as expected, comes with a vast array of equipment as standard. This includes heated rear windscreen, 17" alloy wheels, leather seats and steering wheel, electric windows, automatic climate control and Land Rover’s industry-leading All-Terrain Response system for off-road driving.

Unlike Land Rover 4x4s of old, the engine choices are more frugal than ever but still deliver performance capable of coping with rough terrain.

Choices range from a 2.7-litre V6 Turbocharged diesel up to a 5.0-litre V8 petrol and come with a choice of manual or automatic transmission, depending on the engine.

Land Rover Discovery 4 prices start from around £36,000 on-the-road for the entry-level 2.7-litre S model.
