Is That a Land Rover Discovery I See Before Me?

No, it is actually a Honda Crossroad from the 1990s.

During the period of cooperation between Honda and Rover, a number of Honda designs were built in the UK, beginning with the Triumph Acclaim. Later, Hondas were built by Rover and badged as Rovers and MGs. A series of Honda/Rover vehicles were also sold in the US as Sterlings. Fine cars, but like many former BL efforts, poorly planned.

The Honda Crossroad was built in Japan off Land Rover tooling. Almost 200,000 of the Japanese-British hybrids were sold between 1993 to 1998 when BMW bought Rover, effectively ending the venture.
