Land Rover Discovery 4 Review
Few will have missed the trend in recent years for 4x4 vehicles to become more car-like. In an age where even the most popular SUVs can be purchased in two wheel-drive form, something happened in Britain that made people think twice about what they want from their family transport. Something that even managed to wash away years of 4x4 hatred and Daily Mail-style hand-wringing. What could possibly be powerful enough to have such an effect? The great British weather. Consecutive winters of heavy snow and deep flood-water made many people realise that, unless you were planning on staying at home in a state of hibernation, owning a genuine 4WD vehicle actually made sound, practical sense. In some parts of the country, it even became a necessity. Is today’s Land Rover Discovery 4 still worthy of such attention?
