Best AWD over 1,800kg - Land Rover Discovery 3.0 SDV6 HSE Luxury
Only a big hitter can scoop such a heavyweight title, and at 2,570kg, the Land Rover Discovery topped the kerbweight table this year.
Only a big hitter can scoop such a heavyweight title, and at 2,570kg, the Land Rover Discovery topped the kerbweight table this year. Yet it felt surprisingly light on its feet.
The Discovery is celebrating its 25th birthday this year, and although it’s come a long way from its early days, it still retains that go-anywhere spirit. Most buyers probably won’t begin to scratch the surface of its capabilities – this car is genuinely unstoppable off-road – but they will enjoy the effortless driving and brilliant towing ability that the Discovery delivers.
There are plenty of goodies to play with, too: TV, DAB radio, rear seat entertainment system and Trailer Stability Assist to name just a few.
Although the Disco won’t be cheap to run, Land Rover helps to take the sting out of ownership with a three-year, unlimited-mileage warranty, plus a five-year service plan, with a one-off payment starting from £499.
