The Land Rover Discovery is a mid-size luxury SUV, from the British manufacturer Land Rover. There have been five generations of the vehicle, the first of which (Series I) was introduced in 1989.
The Discovery Series I was introduced into the United Kingdom in October 1989. The new model was based on the chassis and drivetrain of the more upmarket Range Rover, but with a lower price aimed at a larger market segment intended to compete with Japanese competition. This was the only Discovery generation with a four-cylinder petrol engine.
