Exterior

The next-generation Land Rover Discovery somewhat departs from the traditional muscle-bound lines that have come to define this model for the past 30-something years. While it still looks purpose-built to take on rough roads, the Discovery now looks more dynamic and modern. Meanwhile, the 2019 Audi Q7 possesses the look that defines the crossovers of today; more wagon-like than SUV-like. It looks decisively modern, and looks great both on the move and on a standstill.

Just like the Land Rover Discovery models of years’ past, the interior of this year’s Discovery seems purpose-built. The interior design and materials are stylish, high-quality, and seem to be built to last. While not as refined as some of its competition, its build quality still makes the Discovery’s interior stand out. As for the Q7, a lot would say that the cabin is reminiscent of that of a luxury car. The quality of materials is on-point, and there is more than enough space for passengers in the front and rear seats.
