Land Rover Discovery (04-17)

Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I have a family and an active life outside work. The latter part is not true, but that's what it says.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They like it and they wold all like one.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes. There are few alternatives to the space and comfort; the Q7 is just too big and the Land Cruiser is a tractor in disguise.

What are you likely to buy next?
Another Land Rover unless someone comes out with a better alternative. There are none around at the moment.

Franchise

New

What price did you pay?
£40,000

When did you buy the car?

Needed seven seats, wanted to stay with Land Rover

What was the dealer like?
Friendly and personable, keen to do the deal but not too pushy.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very Range-Rover like (as a former owner of one), commanding driving position. No sports car but has enough poke when it needs to go.

What's it like to park?
The parking sensors make life a lot easier, but most spaces are tight spaces with something this size.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Sat Nav has played up but was easily fixed, little else.

Seven seats, interior space

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Glass roof lets light floor into the rear, especially the third row seats
