Land Rover Discovery 4 SUV Review

Design and Engineering

Interior and Styling

The updated interior of the Discovery 4 provides a far more luxurious and premium feel than the 3. An all new dashboard and centre console design is finished in significantly higher quality materials and the major controls are now easier to use including the revised Terrain Response controller (Land Rover’s easy-to-use 4WD selector). In range topping HSE trim, Range Rover levels of luxury are on hand thanks to a leather trimmed dash.

The 5-inch information display located between the instrument cluster is very clear and the gauges look classy, keyless start/stop is also a nice inclusion and the climate control air-conditioning works a treat. New technologies also include the five-camera surround system and automatic high beam assist.

The driving position remains superb and the all new seats are very comfortable. All controls are within easy reach either from steering wheel-mounted buttons, the usual column stalks or on the sloping centre-console (thankfully the signature upright Land Rover dash design still lives on). Forward vision on offer for the driver is excellent (due to the higher driving position), especially for such a big vehicle.

The relatively low waistline also aids side visibility.

The cabin is very practical and the extra storage bins and the dash has a couple of useful storage cubbies too. The second row bench is comfortable for three and the cinema style tiered seating arrangement combined with the low window line ensures all three rows of passengers have a clear view of the surrounds.

The third row seats (standard on all grades bar the TDV6) fold flat into the floor to create a massive amount of rear cargo space. Thanks to a cleverly designed split-folding rear tailgate it’s also easy to pop in a couple of smaller items quickly, plus the lower section can also be used as a seat (perfect for taking off the kiddies muddy footy boots after the Sunday game).

Not so good

Second row legroom is only average for such a big vehicle and of course the third row seats are more child than … friendly (so it can’t compete with the biggest People Movers for seven seat space). It’s also not that easy to get in and out of the third row (a problem shared with competing luxury SUVs). With all seven seats in use luggage space is significantly reduced and serious 4×4 fans might not like that the spare wheel is located under the rear of the vehicle.
