Our July 2021 issue sees the Discovery 5 go head-to-head against the latest Land Rover Defender. We put these two very different machines to the test, on road and off, to see which comes out on top. It’s not an easy decision to make!

Plus – don’t miss our jam-packed guide to camping with your Land Rover. Sleeping arrangements, cooking set-ups, dealing with bugs, storage, clothing and loads of gear ideas… We’ve thought long and hard about all the systems we’ve used over the years, and distilled our experience into this pithy guide to inspire your next adventure.
