2020 Land Rover Discovery: Good looks for the adventurous family

Now on its third generation, the Discovery proves it's a worthy contender for those who want to get off the beaten path in luxury.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

The Land Rover Discovery slots in between the Discovery Sport and the larger Range Rover. A third row is available, but it functions just fine as a five-seater.

The Discovery can be had with a supercharged 3.0-liter gasoline engine, but this car has the turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel engine, pushing out 254 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque.

A water-fording system knows how close you are to the max 35.4-inch wading depth, since nobody wants to float away in their Disco.

The older Discovery had an off-set spare tire carrier. That design language still carries through to the latest generation, even though the tire carrier is no longer featured.

Although the InControl Touch Pro infotainment system has made some advancements in reliability and usability recently, it can be pretty persnickety and difficult to figure out.
