15. Land Rover Discovery
When it comes to one of the most iconic vehicles, the Discovery has been around for decades as a capable offroad vehicle. But the current crop of Discovery models has become more authoritarian than ever. With that said, the Discovery is not necessarily a bad SUV if luxury and prestige are your things. But aside from that Land Rover badge, however, there are lesser offerings on the market that offer more bang for your buck.
From a distance, you may think that you’re looking at a Dodge Durango. That’s because the exterior styling of the Discovery is rather bland. The Discovery is lacking the third-row seat that most in this class offer. The Discovery is billed at the ultimate off-road machine, but the result is more or less a utilitarian grocery getter. Although the Discovery does have a dedicated off-road system the low profile tires don’t do much for going off-road.
The Discovery has changed a lot since the iconic tall roofed vehicle. Sadly for the 2020 model year, there are going to be more capable off-road vehicles that offer more features than the Discovery. If you’re going to get a Discovery because of its prestige, that’s one thing. But if you want a Discovery to do some serious off-roading, you’ll probably want to look somewhere else.
