Default Land Rover Discovery celebrates 20th birthday

Land Rover Discovery is celebrating 20 years of dominating presence in the market. The all-purpose vehicle, has been around since November 16, 1989. It was made to fill the gap between the Defender and the top-of-the-line Range Rover.

Phil Popham, Managing Director -
The Discovery is built on innovative design and advanced technology. It has answered the needs and tastes of its increasingly urbane and discerning buyers.
Back in 1989, the Discovery was the first vehicle in its class to offer high-efficiency direct-injection diesel technology and twin airbags appeared later on in 1998.
The Discovery is available in 91 countries and more than 900,000 units have been sold till date.

I feel the discovery has more or less become the range rover.Not a bad thing to turn into but the essence of the discovery is lost.Only the back remains the same.I hope land rover does more to differentiate between its cars on the outside.
