Land Rover Discovery

(2017 - present)

The Land Rover Discovery is a large seven-seat SUV. The current version was launched in the UK in early 2017 and is branded as the fifth-generation model, although it is really the third major iteration in the Discovery’s 30-year history.

The latest Discovery is also no longer built in the UK, as production shifted to Slovakia in 2018.

The Land Rover Discovery has received a broad range of scores from the UK motoring media, ranging from below average to outstanding. It has received particular praise for its combination of on- and off-road ability, as well as its interior comfort and practicality. However, it has been criticised for its polarising rear styling, reliability issues and expensive price tag compared to rivals.
