2018 Toyota 4Runner vs. 2018 Land Rover Discovery

The 2018 Land Rover Discovery and the 2018 Toyota 4Runner are two of the most popular choices that car purchasers in Milford Connecticut find it difficult to choose between. Both the brands have strong reputation in the market, but it is Toyota that offers a better value for money. This comparison will tell you why!

Design & Style

Both the models have sporty looks from the exterior, and they are quite elegant in their appearance. But when you move inside, things are quite different. The 5-seater Discovery can seat up to 7 people in HSE Luxury models with the extension of the third row. Some standard features include upgraded leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, a heated steering wheel and heated seats.

On the other hand, the Toyota 4Runner has sturdy 17-inch wheels, with nice placement of dash panels and adequate legroom and headroom for passengers and drivers. This vehicle is well suited for outdoor travelling, as there is a lot of room in the cargo area, as well as the trunk space. With a good ground clearance, it makes convenient to take entry into and exit from the vehicle.

Technology & Safety

From the perspective of technology and safety features, both the models have something to offer. The 2018 Land Rover Discovery comes standard with a 10-inch infotainment screen, along with a navigation system.  With logical menus, the infotainment system has quick response to inputs, but it lacks basic smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Safety features includes the likes of rear parking sensors, rearview camera, rear cross traffic alert, driver drowsiness monitoring, a 360-degree camera and a traffic sign recognition system.

Talking about the 2018 Toyota 4Runner has an amazing infotainment system, with a USB Port, satellite radio and a eight-speaker system. You can add JBL audio system as upgrade. Some standard safety features include a dual-zone climate control system, parking sensors and driver assistance.


In order to judge the true potential of a vehicle, performance is an important parameter. There are two options you have with the 2018 Discovery: a 254-HP, 6-cylinder 3-Liter turbo diesel engine and a 340 HP supercharged 3-liter 6-cylinder engine. For the 2018 Toyota 4Runner, we have a V6 4-liter engine that can produce an output of 278lb-ft of torque and 270 HP.

The Bottom Line

With head to head comparison of both the models, in all the aspects including safety, technology and design, the 4Runner emerges out to be a remarkable investment. It has a definite edge over the 2018 Land Rover Discovery, although the latter is also a promising choice for the given price point.
