How Much Does the Land Rover Discovery Cost

The 2020 Land Rover Discovery's base model starts at $52,300,

midsize SUVs. The mid level Landmark and HSE trims start at 

$58,500 and $59,700, respectively. The high-level HSE Luxury 

trim starts at $67,200. Several packages and a $2,000 turbo diesel 

engine option are available.

How Many People Does the Discovery Seat?

There's seating for five people in the standard Discovery, but an 

available third row increases seating capacity to seven. This Land 

Rover provides spacious seating in the first two rows, with sliding 

and reclining second-row seats. The third row is a bit tight, but 

there’s enough room for most adults.

Discovery and Child Car Seats

There are two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors for the 

second-row seats and two additional sets for the optional third-row 


Discovery Interior Quality

The Discovery's cabin features high-quality materials that are on 

par with what shoppers expect from a luxury vehicle. It comes 

standard with leather upholstery, and upgraded leather upholstery 

is available.

Discovery Cargo Space

There's 41.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second-row seats 

and 83.7 cubic feet when the second-row seats are folded down. 

That's a good amount of space, though a bit less than what the 

2019 Discovery provides. A power lift gate is standard, and a 

hands-free power lift gate is available. You can also add the 

Remote Intelligent Seat Fold, which allows you to fold down the 

rear seats using an app on your smartphone.

Discovery Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

This Discovery comes with an In Control Touch Pro infotainment 

system that has a slow-to-respond 10-inch touch screen and oddly 

arranged controls. However, this Land Rover provides a decent 

amount of standard tech features, including Android Auto, Apple 

Car Play, and a 10-speaker audio system. Navigation, a 16-speaker 

Meridian audio system, a WiFi hot spot, satellite radio, HD Radio, 

and two second-row USB ports are available.

Discovery Performance

Discovery Engine: 2 Solid Engine Options

A supercharged 340-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 engine powers the 

base Discovery, and a 254-horsepower 3.0-liter turbo diesel is 

available. The base engine should provide enough power for most 

shoppers. Models with the turbo diesel engine don't accelerate as 

quickly, but the increased torque makes them off-road beasts. The 

turbo diesel also returns improved fuel economy. A smooth-

shifting eight-speed automatic transmission comes with both 


Discovery Gas Mileage: Opt for the Efficient Turbo diesel

Discovery models equipped with the standard supercharged V6 

engine get 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. Those 

are some of the worst fuel economy figures in the class. Opting for 

the turbo diesel engine will get you a much more efficient vehicle. 

These models get 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. 

Those are great estimates for a luxury midsize SUV.

Discovery Ride and Handling: Balanced Ride

This Land Rover has precise steering and a suspension system that 

smooths out bumps in the road while maintaining a stable ride, 

even on curvy roads. Its on-road manners aren't as engaging as 

those of some competitors, however.

Discovery Off-Road Performance: Outstanding

A major highlight of the Discovery is its off-road capability. This 

vehicle can easily travel over mud, rocks, sand, and snow. In 

addition to its standard four-wheel drive, the Discovery comes 

with hill-descent control. Additional off-road equipment is 

available, including a two-speed transfer case, Terrain Response 2, 

and All-Terrain Progress Control.

Discovery Towing Capacity

The Discovery can tow up to 8,201 pounds when properly

Which Land Rover Discovery Model Is Right for Me

The 2020 Discovery comes in four trim levels: SE, Landmark, 

HSE, and HSE Luxury. The base SE trim should have enough 

features to satisfy most shoppers. The SE can also be equipped

levels. All models come standard with a supercharged V6 engine, 

an eight-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel drive. A 

turbodiesel engine is available in the SE, HSE, and HSE Luxury 

trims for an additional $2,000.

rear seats.

Land Rover Discovery Landmark

In addition to several of the packages available for the base trim, 

the HSE is available with the Luxury Climate Comfort package, 

which costs $3,300 and includes a heated steering wheel, heated 

and ventilated front and rear seats, four-zone automatic climate 

control, and upgraded leather upholstery. The 7 Seat Luxury

upgraded leather upholstery in addition to heated third-row seats. 

You can also add the Remote Intelligent Seat Fold package, which 

includes Intelligent Seat Fold, power reclining rear seats, and 

powered third-row seats for $1,095.
