The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
An SUV or crossover that provides a better balance of capability than the 2017 Land Rover Discovery simply doesn't exist. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class pared down its powertrains to gas only or a plug-in hybrid, although it still has plenty of stops in between for luxury buyers.
