A million miles away from the Discovery
By stephen murphy on
2005 Land Rover LR3 SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
To start with, I cannot express enough what a thrilling vehicle the fantastic new LR3 is. The old Discovery, of which I've had three, is positively prehistoric, by comparison. Without going into technical detail I can say that the ride, handling, dynamic looks and attention to detail are all first rate. In fact, I also test drove the Range Rover and preferred the LR3 hands down. The designers and engineers deserve the highest accolades for bringing the LR3 to market.
The drive is superb. The design, inside and out, is absolutely superb. And although this is an expensive vehicle, it's also great value for money compared with the competition (there actually is none). The best (looking) SUV on the road. Superb in every respect.
Slight oversteer (or am I comparing it with the old Discovery ?).
