    Did a 250 mile round trip in the courtesy car today. The 3l SD6. (Cars just gone in for its 2 year service).

    Wow, I am seriously impressed at the power/torque and almost instant response from the throttle. Felt just as fast as our 3L Petrol. Fuel economy wise getting 100 miles more on the diesel tank when brimmed against the petrol. Just a pity it doesn't have a tow bar as would have liked to see how good the engine is towing a 1 tonne load. Am pretty sure that it would have easily coped, and probably not noticing that I was even towing.

    Engine is a bit more raspier when on the go and when ticking over, compared to the petrol but still very quiet. Far better power delivery than our old 3l TD6 which was quite vocal in comparison to the SD6.

    Running on 20 inch tyres which I found were just as comfortable as our 22's. No real difference over potholes and bumps, but was expecting them to be a bit more forgiving.

    Possibly not though as tyres have done quite a bit of miles on them. May have been different if the tyres were new.

    Another nice feature the Mrs commented on was the bluetooth feature. The MY19 has the gloss black touch sensitive buttons on the steering wheel whereas the MY18 has got the normal push buttons.

    When calling or receiving, the white phone logo on the steering wheel changes from a grey/white to either a red or green symbol for answering or hanging up.

    Really nice feature, as can accept or decline a call without staring at the infotainment system, and taking your eyes off the road.

    I never even noticed until she rang me. (On the MY18 the red and green logos just come up on the infotainment system).

    Much prefer my 18my SE without the glossy black plastic, no smeary finger prints. Was driving a FFRR last week, in the sunshine couldnt see the lower touch screen, just loads of smeary finger marks.

    2019 Discovery SDV6 HSE Lux Carpathian Grey

    @roadrunner2017

    Yes, the SD6 is a real muscular peach isn’t it? I came from a 326bhp 3.0 turbo petrol in a 1600kg 440i. Yet In average driving I don’t notice any lack of performance.

    Sure, if a wide empty road opens up on me, I can’t have that little buzz winding it round to 7k rpm as the HUD mph spins up almost instantly, but for 99% of the week the SD6 is plenty. Impressive in a car of this weight. Very smooth too.

    I totally agree Equilibrium. Amazing what an extra 60bhp does.
    It takes alot to impress me but LR have nailed it with this engine. When I briefly had the 256bhp TD6, I posted then on the forum that it needed at least 300 bhp, as I was having to floor the car further back for a safe overtake so that the single turbo could spool up as so much lag. Glad they brought the twin turbos back Thumbs Up

    But a real shame they only make it available in some parts of Europe... like the adaptive suspension.

    Yes it's a shame. You would think they would make the specs international.
    (Obviously stuff like Digital TV and DAB radio wont work in certain developing countries). However I can't see why adaptive suspension is not included internationally. Especially with the state of some of the roads abroad, it would showcase how well the vehicle handles. However maybe the adaptive suspension would take a battering on potholed roads so LR engineers have advised against it in some countries. Avoids the hassle to the dealer I suppose. Basic spec is better may be the logic behind it? Rolling Eyes
