The Land Rover Discovery 3 is the first edition of the second generation of the Land Rover Discovery. It was manufactured from 2004 – 2009. The instantly recognizable shape of the original generation was largely maintained in this model with its upright and bulky presence with several fashionable updates, mainly the visibly stepped roofline and sloping windscreen. Other external updates include the prominent grille, body-coloured details and improving the back window design to a more elegant presentation.

The interior design was updated quite significantly. The Land Rover Discovery 3 demonstrates minimalist and functional interior combined with high-quality finishes. The flexible seven-seat layout with entrance through backdoors instead of the rear improved user-friendliness. This model was also one of the first with a navigation system and optional extras such as Bluetooth in later models. The smart infotainment system provides multiple control units throughout the vehicle that communicate with each other and the navigation system screen, displaying wheel angles, suspension action, and diff lock positions.

Mechanically there were some new additions. Land Rover introduced an updated body construction where the engine and passenger top compartments are combined with a traditional chassis. This construction affords the Discovery 3 the strength, endurance, and resilience of a combination single shell chassis and a ladder-frame chassis although losing some of its agility. This model also included independent suspension, which provided the driver with the ability to lower or raise the ground clearance.

The Discovery 3 is available in petrol; 4-liter V6 or 4.4Litre V8 or the 2.7litre diesel V6 T, all with 6-speed gearbox engine (automatic or manual).

Praised by some critics and influential press, the Discovery 3 is predominantly known for its improved interior design and one of the most agile and able 4 x 4's on the market. It's predecessor presented some mechanical issues that were largely corrected in the Discovery 3 with the added upgrades and superior 4 x 4 ability. Fuel consumption for combined use in the Diesel is around 13.8l/100km, the most economical of the models available.
