What is it?
Land Rover really couldn't have made driving the Disco 4 simpler. In everyday use it's just a big, tall car admittedly, but nothing unusual about it. Key changes with 2010's refresh, along with the engine, included some tweaking of the suspension. It'll still go anywhere off-road, but it's more adept on it now. It rides decently, while the steering is not the nightmare that you might anticipate.
Getting pretty close to Range Rover levels of comfort with the Discovery, even with the diesel engine. It's quiet enough, capable of cruising at respectable speeds and has plenty of room. Try not to think of the Discovery as an off-roader that's been civilised, because it really is so much more than that.
On the inside
The 3.0-litre V6 diesel features twin turbochargers, meaning although it's as weighty as America's debt burden, it shifts pretty darn convincingly given its size.
Too common to be truly cool. But respectable. A bit like Marks and Spencer.
