Land Rover Discovery 4 2014
Carsguide Joshua Dowling had this to say at the time: Land Rover is bringing 150 of the XXV editions to Australia. My expert opinion was to advise buyers to negotiate hard. The price is high and there is an all-new model due next year. But it turns out this is the one that's in demand. My posse of Land Rover lovers tell me the all-new Discovery is already out of vogue among Women In The Know. Land Rover designed the new model with sleeker lines, apparently to appeal to women. But it may have kicked an own goal. Based on the photos they've seen, they don't like it as much as the current model and are trying to snaffle up the last of the current breed. Oh dear. At least I know who we'll get along for the road test of the new Discovery when it arrives next year. Let's see Land Rover take on a group of power mums. Better them than me. In automotive terms, this could be a bigger deal than when Coca-Cola changed its softdrink formula.You can read the full review here.

Land Rover Discovery 4 2014 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Land Rover Discovery 4 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Good SUV for outback caravan towing
The Discovery hasn’t done a lot of kays for its age, presumably those it has done have been tooling around town. If it’s in great shape, has been well maintained and serviced and hasn’t been used off-road I would tend to go for the Land Rover. Against that the Jeep has a good reputation as a towing vehicle, and it’s new, which adds to its appeal.Show more
How important is getting regular services?
The recommended interval is 24,000 km or 12 months, not 24,000 km and how ever many months it might take to do 24,000 km. The time recommendation is specified to cover those items that deteriorate with time rather than kays. Have the service done.Show more
Is a Land Rover Discovery a good replacement for a Honda CR-V?
The Discovery 4 is highly regarded by owners. It’s a very capable off-roader, comfortable and refined on the road, and there are few issues to worry about. Service costs are high if you use a factory dealer, but there are plenty of independent mechanics able to take care of it for you. When checking a Discovery check for use off-road, and look for one that has been pampered within the town boundaries. If you don’t want a car that will go off-road perhaps look at a Toyota Kluger 7-seater or a Mazda CX-9.Show more
Replacement options for a 2005 Pathfinder?
You haven't given us the weight of the caravan you want to tow, which goes a long way to determining the best car for you. We'll err on the side of caution and go for cars with a towing capacity of at least 2500 kg that fall within your budget. It's always best to go for the latest model you can afford, which means around 2103 in your case. I'm guessing you're over the Pathfinder given your experience with the holed piston in your current car, but the Nissan is an option for you. So too are the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Mitsubishi Pajero, although the Pajero's rear suspension is prone to sagging when heavily loaded and I would rule that out on that basis. If you can stretch your budget a little you could consider the Landrover Discovery 4, which does everything you want well, but is the most expensive of this bunch. For me the pick of the bunch for me is the Toyota Prado, for performance, economy, and reliability. The only issue for you could be that the Prado's towing rating is 2500 kg, the lowest of the cars we mention here.Show more
