New Land Rover Discovery 3 Review
Seven hundred changes were made to the Land Rover Discovery in 2004 and although hardly any major components were carried over to the new model, somehow Land Rover have managed to keep one thing the same, this is still a Disco, that looks like a Disco.
The Discovery was originally launched to bridge the gap between the totally practical Land Rover Defender and the Range Rover, designed to carry five people in comfort over the roughest of terrains, the Discovery quickly found an extremely loyal following. Now available in both five and seven seat variants the new Discovery 3 still has all of its off road abilities but with bags more style and comfort, in fact if anything the Discovery 3 has moved even further up market.
Six airbags are standard on the five seater Discovery 3 with eight on the seven seat version, stability control, traction control, anti lock brakes, hill descant control as well as permanent four wheel drive are also standard on all Discovery 3 models.
Power options on the Discovery 3 are either a 2.7 litre turbo diesel or a 4.4 litre petrol V8, both are based on Jaguar engines, the diesel has a power output of 190 bhp with the petrol offering 295 bhp, top speeds of 112 and 121 mph are achieved respectively.
Like the looks of the Land Rover Discovery 3, why not check out the Toyota Rav4, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Toyota Land Cruiser, the BMW X5 or the Volvo XC90.
