Why Lease A Land Rover Discovery?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
Very often, 7-seat SUVs have lots of space for 5 and then a couple of tiny seats squeezed into the back. But the Discovery is a genuine 7-seater, and even adults will have legroom and headroom in the 3rd row. No other SUV will give you this much space for 5 in the back.
Using the 3rd row of seats means the boot isn’t huge, at 258 litres. But fold them away and you’ll get a massive space, which can expand even further if you drop the 2nd row of chairs too. It’s almost van-like – in fact, Land Rover even makes a commercial version of the Discovery.
Storage space is excellent, too. There are massive door pockets and a huge cubby between the front seats, as well as a hidden space in the dashboard for a mobile phone. A pair of gloveboxes can house even more odds and ends.
If the Discovery lacks anything, it’s a plug-in hybrid model, which could dramatically reduce running costs. That’s something that rivals like the Audi Q7, BMW X5, Mercedes GLE and Volvo XC90 can all offer. It’s therefore hard to recommend a Discovery to company car drivers, as the benefit-in-kind tax will be much higher due to higher CO2 emissions.
Still, if you do want the most frugal Discovery then the diesels are the ones to look at. Both engines promise the same fuel economy of up to 33.9mpg. That’s not brilliant, but remember that the Discovery is a big, heavy car with permanent 4-wheel drive. Of the petrol engines, the more powerful P360 will get better fuel economy than the P300, thanks to its mild-hybrid system – it’ll give you up to 26.7mpg.
The Land Rover Discovery Vs Competitors
Absolutely. There are a few concerns about reliability, but the Discovery is comfortable, stylish, spacious, and drives well both on and off the road.
The fly in Land Rover’s ointment is its reliability record, which isn’t great. The brand regularly sits towards the bottom of independent dependability studies, and has done so for a long time.
Running costs on any premium SUV won’t be particularly cheap. The Discovery costs more to fuel than rivals with plug-in hybrid powertrains, but other costs will be similar.
They have different price points, so aren’t directly comparable. The Range Rover is bigger and more luxurious, but the Discovery will seat 7.
People look for leasing deals on Land Rovers because of the brand heritage, luxurious image and the impressive capability of its cars.
That depends on your priority. We’d stick with a diesel if you do long journeys and want good fuel economy, but for performance the petrol P360 would be our pick.
