The base SE model now comes with more standard equipment, including LED headlamps, a power-operated inner tailgate, lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and a new steering wheel with capacitive-touch button controls; a four-zone automatic climate-control system is now optional on the SE. The InControl Touch Pro infotainment system sees a few software updates and offers optional Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Upscale HSE and HSE Luxury models now come with a real-time wading-depth information system and a heated windshield is now available as a standalone option on all models.

Pros
Handsome square-jawed appearance,
upscale cabin,
superior off-road capability.

Cons
Thirsty gasoline engine,
clumsy on-road dynamics,
lackluster braking performance.

Minor changes to standard and optional feature availability.The 2019 Land Rover Discovery is a distinctive offering among three-row midsize luxury SUVs. Along with its excellent road manners, the Discovery comes with impressive off-road capability and a posh interior. Our biggest complaint involves the infotainment system's clunky interface. But if you can adapt it, you'll find plenty to like here.

PROS
Smooth driving manners on the road
Above-average capabilities off-road
Interior is luxurious with excellent materials
Clever features in terms of utility and technology

CONS
Diesel engine option has little advantage over standard gas engine
Touchscreen interface can be slow and difficult to operate
