New Land Rover Discovery 5 vs 4, 3, 2 and 1: Disco generations review

We assemble five generations of Land Rover Discovery – from three decades – to see how far this off-road legend has come. It was a landmark year for the Land Rover Discovery in 2017. While the nameplate has spanned nearly three decades, there have only been five models, so the launch of the all-new fifth-generation version earlier in the year was a milestone in the Discovery’s timeline. Another significant moment for the Discovery was when the Mk5 scooped the Car of the Year crown at the Auto Express New Car…

Long-term test review: Mazda CX-5

First report: the arrival of the Mazda CX-5 SUV has injected some Japanese flair into our test fleet.

New Porsche Cayenne 2017 review

The all-new Porsche Cayenne has arrived, and we try it out in range-topping Turbo guise. The Cayenne defined the large, sporty SUV market when it first appeared in 2003, and while the 911 remains the essence of the Porsche brand, it’s the big 4×4 that the maker simply has to get right from a cash-generating perspective. This new third-generation model is based on the same platform that underpins both the Bentley Bentayga and the current Audi Q7. Once again though, Porsche has spared no effort in adapting it to its…
