1998 Land Rover Discovery 50th Anniversary 4dr SUV AWD
We have about 120,000 miles on this car now and it is our favorite drive of the three in the garage (the others are a Jaguar and a Porsche, great cars on their own). Roadholding is exceptional in any weather and terrain (British cars have the best suspensions). Build quality is not perfect and so is reliability, but the design is great, both exterior and interior. Acceleration is slow (very heavy car) but adequate. Fuel economy is antiquated. Great to drive at speed on the highway, to our surprise. Dealer service is exceptional. When maintained well (not cheap), the car should last a long time. As I said, we love it with all its faults. This is an enthusiast's car, not an appliance.
Design, handling, roadholding competence, class, presence on the road, feeling of safety. Amazing in snow.
Fuel economy, reliability, maintenance intensity. There are many reliable but boring automobiles out there which is a different class of vehicles.
