I think the V8 powerplant in the Disco makes it a beast of a wagon. It is certainly a 4*4 I would consider when if i have a family, as the Def. would just be too uncivilised for that kind of thing. If I had one i'd probably end up raking the **** out of it and running out of petrol money, or go over a hedge or something. The sound coming off that baby makes me smile.

The average m.p.g on this mean machine is 20 miles. But the comfort in the sx models with full climatic control, crusie contol, cd autochanger and all the four wheel drive gismsos is well worth buring up the road.
