2022 Land Rover Discovery

Pros: Robust off-road ability; available third-row seat; upscale interior

Cons: So-so fuel economy; top trim levels are pricey; reliability record is iffy

CG Says:

The Land Rover Discovery sees only minimal changes for 2022–namely the discontinuation of a few minor options. The Discovery is a midsize crossover SUV that slots above the compact Discovery Sport. The Discovery uses aluminum-intensive unibody construction for reduced weight and has an optional third-row seat for seating up to seven passengers. A 296-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine is standard, and a 355-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six paired with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system is available; both engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard, and a two-speed transfer case for better off-road performance is optional. As expected of a Land Rover, there is an extensive range of available off-road features: standard height-adjustable air suspension, All-Terrain Progress Control, automatic terrain response, hill-descent control, and Wade Mode for fording water. Available luxury features include heated seats for all three rows, heated/cooled/massaging front seats, power-folding second- and third-row seats with smartphone remote control, 4G Wi-Fi, an 11.4-inch infotainment screen, tablet holders on the front seatbacks with USB-A charging sockets, and park assist. Available safety features include autonomous emergency braking, pedestrian detection, driver-condition monitor, lane-departure warning and mitigation, and blind-spot alert. Discovery has the genuine off-road ability expected of a Land Rover, so for SUV buyers who really want to venture off the beaten path without giving up modern-day comfort/technology features and on-road civility, it’s a compelling choice.
