The Land Rover Discovery Sport is a premium compact SUV smaller than the Land Rover LR4, larger than the Range Rover Evoque. Discovery Sport seats five, but it can be ordered with a third row suitable only for small children and referred to as 5+2 seating.
Discovery Sport competes with Audi Q5, BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, Volvo XC60, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and GMC Terrain Denali, none of which offer a third-row. Less luxurious, less sophisticated vehicles such as the Nissan Rogue, Ford Explorer, Toyota Highlander, and Mitsubishi Outlander do offer a third row. For five seats with greater cargo area and good off-highway capability consider also a top-line Subaru Outback.
Discovery Sport sets itself apart because it is a Land Rover with Land Rover styling cues, an airy, efficient cabin, modern safety and telematics features and better-than-average off-highway performance and towing ability (to about 4400 pounds). With the right equipment, InControl lets you run iOS and Android phone apps through the car.
A torquey turbocharged 2-liter engine and nine-speed automatic transmission (shared with Evoque) provide good performance and a semblance of highway fuel economy. EPA City/Highway estimates are 20/26, 22 Combined.
