The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Is More Than Just a Pretty Face

Beauty is in the eye of the car-buying beholder. And no matter how robust the equipment options are, you want to buy a vehicle that looks good to you in terms of style. The problem, though, is often a good-looking ride can be deceiving. And once you climb inside and begin evaluating beyond a vehicle’s good looks, you realize it falls short of what you need.

If you have a 2020 Land Rover Discovery on your radar, you might be wondering if its stylish good looks are a sign of great performance and amenities. Or, will it, too, fall short and disappoint once you take a test drive?

The 2020 Land Rover Discovery offers incredible cargo and interior space

U.S. News and World Report put together a roster of SUVs with incredible cargo and interior space. But this list also happened to exclusively represent luxury models as well.

The 2020 Land Rover Discovery came in at number eight, with official metrics of 83.7 cubic feet of total interior space. Pop open the tailgate, and you’ll have 41.2 cubic feet of storage behind the second row alone. And this spacious interior is complemented by the Discovery’s posh and luxurious touchpoints throughout.

A value proposition like no other

Typically, large SUVs cost more than midsize SUVs because of size alone. But the 2020 Land Rover Discovery likes to balance in between, offering five and seven seating capacity. But there is a tremendous value proposition when you consider how much room, cargo, and total vehicle you get for the price of the midsize version.

And you can have all the luxury and tons of cargo space for thousands less than the large SUV models. You’ll also enjoy smooth driving manners, high-quality materials, and better-than-average off-road capabilities.

Why the 2020 Land Rover Discovery is more than just a pretty face

The 2020 Land Rover Discovery is still available in four trims, the SE, Landmark Edition, HSE, and HSE Luxury. There are two powertrains, both paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Choose between the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 gas version or the turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 diesel. You can expect 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, and a robust menu of driver aids. Land Rover doesn’t cut corners on the side of safety tech, and the Discovery offers rear parking cameras, blind-spot monitoring, and forward-collision warning systems.

Paying the extra $2,000 for the HSE upgrade brings even more luxury and extras. Fog lamps in the front and rear, 20-inch wheels, and a 380-watt Meridian audio platform are just the beginning.

The Land Rover Discovery HSE with the seven seat package includes a pop-up third row, electronically controlled air suspension, and a two-speed transfer case.
