Land Rover Discovery 4: £15k-£20k - Best cheap 4x4s

3.0 SDV6 HSE (2009/59 reg, 71k miles)

Best cheap 4x4s and SUVs - Land Rover Discovery

 

The Discovery 4 arrived in 2009, and was essentially the older Disco 3 with thoroughly reworked running gear. That vast body delivers acres of space inside, but the addition of a new engine, gearbox, brakes and suspension improved the car in every area, while the interior had an upmarket revamp in the process.

The 3.0-litre SDV6 diesel is a powerful performer that has plenty of towing grunt, although it does mean the Discovery 4 has rather steep running costs. Go for a top-spec HSE model, and you’ll have as much luxury kit as you’d find on a Range Rover, with plush heated leather memory seats, xenon lights, sat-nav and keyless entry. Plus, desirable extras include 360-degree surround view cameras.

Try to find a car with a full Land Rover service history, as this should have the latest software updates.
