Ten Second Review

There's nothing quite like a Land Rover Discovery and not much comes close to matching the versatility of this latest fifth generation version. Whether it's carrying seven people in comfort, crossing deserts or cutting it in the company car park, this SUV does the lot. It's also lighter on its toes and your wallet in four cylinder diesel Sd4 form. So, is the Discovery the ultimate four by four? Let's find out.

Background

Land Rover faces ever tougher competition whenever it launches the next incarnation of its Discovery. With this fifth generation model, there are rivals from all corners that offer a sporty drive, great off-road ability or a luxury experience. Yet none of them quite combines all of those elements in one package the way the Brit does and this is what has always made the Discovery stand head and shoulders above its rivals. This MK5 model is mostly made from aluminium. That's helped shave 450 kilograms from the car's weight, which makes it much better on fuel consumption and more agile to drive. There are also new motors under the bonnet, including the 2.0-litre Sd4 turbodiesel we're going to look at here, a unit that aims to keep this large SUV firmly among company car drivers' choices.

Driving Experience

It feels wonderful to be sat in the driver's seat of this Land Rover Discovery. It gives a great view of the road ahead and all around, so you feel safe and in complete control. That sensation is helped along by the way this fifth generation model behaves, which has a lot to do with it being 450 kilograms lighter than its predecessor thanks to ditching a separate chassis in favour of an aluminium core structure. As a result, it goes round corners with little body lean and, thanks to its air suspension, glides over bumps that would upset some its rivals. Of course, this is still a large SUV, so some care is needed when negotiating narrow entrances, but a turning circle of 12.3 metres aids the Land Rover to nip through town and along country lanes with equal composure. As for the motorway, you'll find it stable and very hushed in the cabin. The calm inside the Discovery has a lot to do with what's under the bonnet in the shape of the engine line-up. Most buyers will choose the 2.0-litre 'Sd4' turbodiesel unit we're looking at here - this is the smallest diesel motor every fitted to this green oval model. Mind you, it packs a big punch courtesy of 500 Newton metres of torque that arrives at a mere 1500rpm. You never have to work it hard and there's always enough oomph for overtaking, towing or cruising. Use its full potential and 0-62mph comes up in 8.0 seconds. As with all Discoverys in this range, an eight-speed automatic gearbox is fitted that assists with ease of driving and maximising efficiency.

Design and Build

Since the day it was launched, the Discovery has always had a unique look that's not just set it apart from its rivals, but also made it stand out from the other models in Land Rover's line-up. This fifth generation design moves much closer to the rest of the range and shares much of its inspiration with its smaller Sport sister. Good or bad move on the company's part? That's up to you to decide, but at least there are some of the classic Discovery cues in evidence - the rear C-pillar and the stepped roof for instance. Once installed in the driver's chair, you have a commanding view of the road ahead and to the sides thanks to the elevation and large glass area. The main instrument display directly in front of the driver consists of an analogue speedo on the left and rev counter over on the right-hand side. Both are simple and clear, while in the centre is a digital display for fuel level and water temperature. Anything this can't tell you will be found on the centre-dash 'InControl Touch' colour touchscreen. As for the rear of the car, there's plenty of space in the second row - and adult-sized room in the fold-out third row seats too - which is unusual, even with large larger 7-seat SUVs. As for luggage space, well there's lots of it - up to 1,137-litres with the first two seating rows in place, or up to 2,406-litres with just the front seats in use.
