Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Land Rover Discovery than in the Lexus GX 460. The Lexus GX 460 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Discovery, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
