About the model

The Land Rover Discovery was introduced in 1989. The first generation of Discovery is known as the Discovery 1, and was based on the Land Rover Range Rover. The Discovery 1 is credited as being one of the first truly off-road capable family cars. Also known as the 'Disco,' the Discovery 1 is the only generation of Discovery to feature two door variants, with all later Discovery's sold as four door versions. The Discovery 1 was offered with a range of inline four or V8 engines and was in production until 1998. The Discovery 1 was replaced by the Land Rover Discovery 2.
