Looking for a midsize SUV that’s equally capable on- and off-road and doesn’t skimp on luxury? The new Land Rover Defender and Land Rover Discovery are two options that should be high on your list.

In this guide, Land Rover Newport Beach compares both options so you can answer that all-important question: Will the Land Rover Defender or Discovery claim a coveted spot in your driveway?
