1989

A Dis­cov­ery tows a four-carriage train at its UK launch in Plymouth, show­ing off the new 200Tdi en­gine.

1990

Five-door bodyshell in­tro­duced.

1994

The mid-term re­fresh brings a hand­some facelift and drivetrain up­dates. The 3.5 V8 is re­placed with a 3.9-litre ver­sion, and the 200Tdi en­gine is re­placed by the smoother 300Tdi. Power out­put is un­changed, though some diehards find the ear­lier diesel slightly more ef­fi­cient and longlived.

1998

Dis­cov­ery 2 is launched. Hun­dreds of im­prove­ments are made, and a new five-cylin­der diesel (Td5) is fit­ted, though the es­sen­tial de­sign and lay­out are re­tained.
