The Land Rover Discovery 4 answers our criticisms of the previous generation Discovery 3 while building on that car’s strengths. Price aside, there’s now little of substance to complain about.

Compared with German rivals like the Audi Q7 and BMW X5, the Discovery 3 was a little short of poke. That’s been addressed by replacing the 2.7-litre diesel with a 3.0-litre engine with more power and torque. Driven solo, there’s no end of punch for overtaking. Hitch up a caravan – even a big twin-axle tourer – and you’ll find more than enough muscle to get passed dawdling traffic. Pulling a Bailey Senator with a Mass in Running Order (MiRO) of 1435kg, the Discovery 4 accelerated from 30-60mph in just 9.9 seconds.
