Overview

More of a makeover than an all-new design, the '99 Disco is still a big improvement

By P TIBBLES

LAND Rover's Discovery still rates as the 4WD most contenders would like to equal in terms of overall ability. In its latest guise, it looks the same although most of the panels are new, and gets an even more impressive suspension system that rates it among the best on-road performers as well as a virtually peerless off-roader. It is also longer, allowing a proper third-row seat installation. And there's an impressive all-new five-cylinder turbo-diesel.
Model release date: 1 March 1999 to 1 November 2002

Previous model

Land Rover Discovery

Released: March 1992
Ended: January 1997
Family Tree: Discovery

The Discovery arrived as a two-door V8 in April 1991. A four-door followed six months later. The economical four-cylinder turbo-diesel four-door came in March 1992 and the cheaper two-door version arrived a year later. No powerhouse with just 2.5 litres, the Tdi at least offered strong torque.
