Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The new Pivi Pro infotainment system is now standard fitment on all but the entry-level version of the Discovery Sport and Evoque. We’ve been behind the wheel of the second-from-top Discovery Sport R-Dynamic SE, which is priced from a cool £51,895 outright when equipped with the P300e drivetrain. It’s a well-rounded and stylishly rendered platform.

Pros
  • Superb infotainment system
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent fuel economy
Cons
  • No third row option

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Wading depth also remains class-leading, although the Discovery’s commendable breakover, approach and departure angles are easily outdone by its sibling. The decision to swap the lovely Range Rover-inspired steering wheel for one clearly Defender-related is curious. Other tweaks extend to new wheel designs (ranging from 19in to 22in), a subtler front grille and seamless LED headlights – although the offset rear numberplate stubbornly remains.

Pros
  • Class-leading off-road performance
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons
  • Lacklustre diesel engines
  • Not as agile as rivals

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The latest Land Rover Discovery is the most capable yet. It manages to blend the unrivalled off-road ability and toughness of the company's previous 4x4s with a considerably better on-road driving experience and greater efficiency. The Disco is impressively refined, too, while its lighter weight and the addition of Land Rover's twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel engine have made the seven-seat SUV available to a wider group of buyers.

Pros
  • Excellent off-road capability
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent on-road performance
Cons
  • Pricey compared to the rest of the range

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Every Discovery comes with seven seats, unlike Land Rover's smaller Discovery Sport. Other affordable seven-seat SUVs that are cheaper to run and readily available include the SEAT Tarraco and Skoda Kodiaq. If seven seats aren't vital, you could consider a Porsche Cayenne, Range Rover Sport or Volkswagen Touareg.

Pros
  • Powerful engines
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons
  • High running costs
  • Lack of standard equipment

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Land Rover Discovery remains our favourite seven-seat 4x4 if you do need proper space for seven people. It's spacious, as quiet as a luxury car and now boasts one of the best infotainment systems in the business. The attempt to make the Disco more car-like has made the ride slightly less sumptuous than before.

Pros
  • Fantastic infotainment system
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Lots of standard equipment
Cons
  • Not as comfy as it’s supposed to be
  • Some plastics have been downgraded

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Discovery is an underrated car in this regard. It might not be a car these days to hose out after carrying pigs to market, but the Discovery is still a very useful vehicle. The 302bhp 3.0 V6 is classy: insistent yet unobtrusive. There's much less body roll and it rides sumptuously even on 21-inch alloys.

Pros
  • Sleek, classy interior
  • Great boot
  • Decent infotainment
Cons
  • Some niggles
  • Not the most practical

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both standard, and an optional Wi-Fi hotspot can keep up to eight devices connected to the internet. Charging options are plentiful, with up to nine USB-C charging points across all three rows of seats. The interior has plenty of leather, shiny black trim and some very nice open-pore wood.

Pros
  • Comfortable interior
  • Good driver-assistance tech
Cons
  • Inaccurate infotainment tech
  • Lack of cargo space
