The old land rover discovery for sale is a classic SUV that’s still a great choice. It’s practical, capable and versatile enough to take on just about anything a family will ever need it for.
Is a Land Rover an expensive car?
The latest model is a mid-life refresh that brings posher trims, new upholstery options and a new infotainment system. Its safety technology has been expanded too, with a suite of features including adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking.
A potent supercharged V6 gasoline engine is standard, but a turbodiesel first seen in the Range Rover is also available as an option. It’s paired to a smooth 8-speed transmission and offers plenty of grunt for the toughest tasks.
It’s an excellent all-round vehicle that’s perfect for the rougher stuff too, thanks to class-leading wheel travel and articulation and the ability to wade through rivers up to three feet deep. It can tow a 3,500-pound trailer as well, and its powerful air suspension makes it feel much lower than it is.
This versatility means it’s ideal for a family with kids, too, and the spacious interior and large cargo bay make it a great helper when it comes to carrying lots of luggage. Even when the third row seats are folded down, the car can still carry a decent amount of cargo, which is a significant advantage over rivals like the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90.
The latest model is a big step up from the previous generation, and it’s an excellent choice if you’re in the market for a used large SUV that’s a real do-it-all. But be careful, all the safety features come at a price and you should shop around to find a specialist mechanic that knows how to keep it in tip-top condition.
