Land Rover Discovery Overview
The Land Rover Dicovery, or more fondly known simply as the ‘Disco’, first made an appearance in late 1989 as an off-road family car based largely on the iconic Range Rover. The now fifth-generation Discovery is the largest, most luxurious off-road Land Rover on offer today.
Unlike its predecessor, the Disco 5 is based on an all-aluminium platform, slashing its kerbweight down by almost half a tonne. That said, it is by no means a featherweight. Perhaps the most identifiable exterior feature on the car is the love-it-or-hate-it asymmetry rear element design.
The Malaysian-spec Rover Discovery comes in the sole 3.0 litre turbodiesel variant with a price tag starting from RM 707,882.51. It goes head-to-head with rivals like the Volvo XC90, BMW X7 and the Toyota Land Cruiser.
