Per­fect all-rounder

If you want a load-lug­ging, semi-civilised de­pend­able work­horse, look no fur­ther. For those who’ve been used to Se­ries Land Rovers and Nine­tys, the Disco 1 will come as an ab­so­lute rev­e­la­tion, es­pe­cially on fast roads. In my 1992 ex­am­ple, I cov­ered over 60,000 miles in two years and it never missed a beat.

Fam­ily-friendly fun

A Dis­cov­ery 1 is the ideal sec­ond car. Great for tip trips (help­ing to keep the fam­ily rep­mo­bile pris­tine), you’ll soon find that the whole fam­ily will quickly clam­our to use the Disco in pref­er­ence. Fold the two dicky seats away (if fit­ted) and save on de­liv­ery of large items, while still fit­ting in the weekly shop.

The ideal city cruiser

A D1 is sur­pris­ingly good in towns. It’s short enough to get into on-street park­ing spa­ces; but watch out for the oc­ca­sional low-slung, multi-storey car park ceil­ing. A com­mand­ing driv­ing po­si­tion gives a mod­ern, con­fi­dent feel and even the diesels are quick enough off the mark, al­beit with a puff of smoke.
