      Diesel personal vehicles may be on their way out in Europe and were never used much in the U.S. Land Rover parts and service are VERY expensive in the U.S. I have a 2019 Nissan Patrol/Armada and, except for the fuel mileage (5.53 Kms/liter) of 13 miles per gallon in the city and 15.5 on the highway and the rear overhang, I am very happy to have it. The Land Cruiser with the V8 petrol motor is my favorite BUT it is $34,000 US, ($50,000 AU) more, I couldn't afford it.

      They whinge about the Patrol lifting wheels, the Discovery did the same, but didn't show a front on shot of the 200 series, i guess it was lifting wheels the same, but didn't want us to see it.

      Just a thought, why the discovery? in this league it should be the range rover. Discovery should be against prado and pathfinder

      Hey guys, sorry to read all the negative comments but I appreciate your unique individual and honest reviews. There was obviously no pay outs done for this review and so thank you for the content. These people saying that the terrain was not severe enough have no credibility as the water was deep enough and the pot holes were probably enough to curb most AWD vehicles nose first.

      Anyway, I'm sure you don't let the haters get to you. Keep it up!

      Get with the times guys. V8’s (any fuel) are dead for mass market vehicles. LandRover are now suffering for offering 85% of diesels in their range. Like it or not, small Turbo/Supercharged petrol engines with PHEV or mild hybrid options are the way we are going.

      These 3 SUVs are designed for completely different use. LC200 is for high reliability use, Land Rover Discovery is for regular family use and Nissan is also for off-road but usually cheaper than Toyota.
      So, this comparison is meaningless.

      What about resale price in a few years, discovery worth zero! Oh and dash full of warning lights. Landcruiser hands down.

      Lack of an overly complicated multi turbo diesel is a huge plus.

      Apparently these LC engines are detonating by the truck loads.. check the owners comments on various sites.. engines getting dusted, injectors failing under 10k kms, gearbox issues, DPF failures, turbos going, dust ingress and huge oil consumption/sludge build ups. Explains why theres heaps for sale with around 90k kms and just inside its warranty. Early 100s were the last of the reliable LCs. Theres reports of Y62s for sale in the UAE with over 400k kms. Fuel consumption on par with the LC and 40k cheaper. Patrol has two factory lockers where the LC has none. Be good to have these 3 SUVs on long term test with a 3.5t van as part of a decent trip.
