Prithvi Lovely Landy, Still prefer the Defender as the worlds best 4x4! Not because I have one. Would love to own the new Disco 4. 2nd March 2010
1-Testosterone Congrats buddy! Well, it's my dream to own this one! Probably in the next few years! This is one brute, mean british bulldog or street cred! If I ever will, I will go for LR Discovery - 3 litre TDV6 Diesel. 12th November 2009
kingofmyworld Sweet ride man! I love this SUV. 12th November 2009

23rd March 2009
throttleking aaah, this is my fav SUV, one day i wish to own this one. 8th January 2009
sAP Steeroid, I am aware of that (had a comprehensive list of "top automotive brands and who makes makes them" on my blog few years ago) I know the widely-known Jaguar X-type and the Ford Mondeo sharing the same platform; but am not aware of the Discovery having a contender with similar enterprise; except the V6 version of the LR3 which had a Ford powerplant; but thats just about it. 17th August 2008
Jayabusa Beautiful! 8th July 2008
sujaylahiri This is the one with the double ladder frame I think. A great off-road vehicle.
Not like its cousin, the Ford Explorer (Land Rover Freelander), which is just useless both on and off road.
